Legendary?

Isn't this a Legendary Pokémon? If so, why isn't it listed as such? --Wynd Fox 05:57, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Two possible reasons: either someone simply overlooked it or the staff is waiting for official confirmation of its legendary status before adding it. (Though it seems obvious that it's the Rayquaza/Giratina/Kyurem of this generation, there's always still the infinitesimal chance that Nintendo could be throwing us for a loop somehow.) Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 06:03, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
It's just been overlooked. It's a Legendary. Ataro (talk) 06:08, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Dex Trivia?

Is it notable that it's last both numerically in the National Dex and alphabetically? --Wynd Fox 19:39, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

I don't have an issue with it. --Pokemaster97 19:54, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Unless they make a "Generation VII" or Expansion Pack (like in The Sims) where the grass starter or one of the early Pokémon has a name like "Zyzkrieg". Then it would not be anymore. (but i think the next game should be the Gen. III Remake in 2014, and then "Pokemon Z" in 2015, and the generation VII if it can exist properly, would be in 2016. Propably introduce hybrid Pokémon or Poké-humans or a subplot with aliens or time travel or somesuch.) --Kaiko Mikkusu (talk) 19:30, 14 December 2013 (UTC) Kaiko Mikkusu.

Maybe you should keep the crazy fan ideas in the forums. I find those "Poké-humans" very unlikely to made by Nintendo. But we'll never know. Until that happens, we should keep that idea off the encyclopedia. SeanWheeler (talk) 22:29, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

Image origin

Where did this image come from, why does it not look like the usual Ken Sugimori art style, why doesn't it look like the other, front forward facing Zygarde pic I keep seeing next to Xerneas and Yveltal? Yamitora1 (talk) 08:46, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

It's not the official artwork, only a placeholder that is used for now (at least it seems so to me). It's the Global Link artwork as stated on the file's page. Արիանո 08:53, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
And the image you're talking is just fanart. Ataro (talk) 09:23, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

Physical appearance

Given its underground habits, its partial insect-like appearance and the fact it sports tail-end cerci and six tiny limbs close to its head; I'd say Zygarde's design might've been inspired by a beetle larvae/grub, a Ground Beetle larva to be precise, given its shape. Would it be alright to add that to the origin section? --Jomarori (talk) 15:00, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

I don't see it as a larva, its more or less a serpent. Although with the mention of Zygote likely having some basis for its name, I am kind of thinking sperm cell. Not saying it looks like a sperm cell, at least not a human sperm cell. Yamitora1 (talk) 15:18, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
Perhaps it also takes inspiration from the tsuchinoko, much like Dunsparce? It's notable for being a rather wide serpent, as well as having a notable straightforward "wiggle" rather than slithering from side to side. Also, the tsuchinoko's ability to swallow its own tail merges well with the possible basis on Jörmungandr, which could grasp its own tail even wrapped around the earth. --Eskay64 (talk) 04:40, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
Zygarde's appearance was absolutely inspired by fibuli, these early medieval pins that were common throughout Scandinavia as a means of pinning tunics together. Here are a few examples, Frankish_-_Digitated_Fibula_-_Walters_542443.jpg http://imgur.com/ylEuTp5. As you can see the idea of a long snakelike body is here along with a flaring head, complete with a bunch of pieces sticking out. These would have been totally normal things for upper class medieval Scandinavians to wear and thus fits Gen 6's Nordic legendary theme. I'm haven't seen this connection made anywhere else, but once I saw it in class I recognized it right a way. Perhaps following that logic we might find some other sort of medieval jewelry references in the other legendaries? - unsigned comment from Dockers (talkcontribs)

Zygarde Etymology

Just looking at the naming trivia, I can't imagine that Garde is actually tied to the origins of its name. It's very serpent-like and clearly based on Norse mythology, so perhaps Zygote and Midgard - specifically the Midgard Serpent.

Position in Trio

Zygarde is in a Legendary trio with Xerneas an Yveltal, so it's "element" should fit with Creation and Destruction. Considering it's Pokédex entry, I think it's safe to say Xerneas = Creation, Yveltal = Destruction, and Zygarde = PRESERVATION. - unsigned comment from Conansboy (talkcontribs)

Which means that the trio is possibly based upon Hindu mythology.--Teamg9 (talk) 12:25, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Catch rate

I doubt that Zygarde's catch rate is really 0. Is this a filler till that info is found, or an error? Reywas360 (talk) 13:17, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

It's a filler.--NOBODY (talk) 13:43, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Yggdrasil Trio

I'm finally starting to thing this, alongside Xerneas and Yveltal were based on Norse Mythology beasts in the Tree of Yggdrasil. They all represent Life, Death and Order as a whole. So should they be called the Yggdrasil Trio?--Duo2nd (talk) 02:41, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Its not really verified they are a trio. At least not yet anyways. As for the Norse basis, its possible they are not based on norse mythology at all, but Hindu mythology or one or more mythologies. As of now, the most popular name for them seems to be Aura Trio if they are a trio. There is a thread about their name on the forum if you're interested. The Thread kind of died but if you have anything to say, there would be the place to say it. Yamitora1 (talk) 03:56, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
They obviously are a trio. It could not be any more obvious if ot tried. And we have no clue what they are supposed to be based of other than the axes, so it could be either. Or both. As for the name, I guess we'll see how it goes.--BigBadBatter (talk) 23:45, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Just wanted to throw it out there

Bulbasaur + Zygarde = Bulbagarde

Trivia???*

-KyuremTrainer (talk) 15:05, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

I'm going to have to say no on that. --Pokemaster97 19:16, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

Typing oddity

Isn't it rather peculiar how Zygarde, the "Order Pokémon", has a defensive type disadvantage against Fairy and an offensive one against Flying, which are the types of Xerneas and Yveltal, respectively?

--TheAsianIsGamin (talk) 07:25, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

I wouldn't consider that notable--BigBadBatter (talk) 23:33, 1 December 2013 (UTC)
Well, if they are indeed a trio, isn't it somewhat notable that one of them (The "Order Pokémon", might I add) is weak to the others? --TheAsianIsGamin (talk) 04:36, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
Defensive and offensive disadvantages are completely different things. I don't think it's as clearly intentional (and thus notable) as, for example, all of the legendary golems' weakness to Fighting. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 05:24, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
I think that it most likely was intentional. Even though the fact that it is weak to Xerneas is probably not as notable, Xerneas and Yveltal are each immune to one of its types, and I think that that should be noted. (The fact that it is weak to Xerneas isn't as notable because it isn't also weak to Yveltal.) This is just my opinion, though! ^^ EpicDeino (talk) 07:36, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Move levels?

How do we know all the levels Zygarde knows its moves? You can't catch it below level 70... - unsigned comment from DisgruntledGoat (talkcontribs)

Most of the other legendaries had their move levels added because they're in a Japanese guidebook, and since Zygarde's were added as part of that round of edits by the same users, I think it's reasonable to assume it was in the guidebook, too, even though nobody has specifically singled it out. Thus, I'll be reinstating the levels for now. If someone with the guidebook wants to confirm whether Zygarde is in it, please speak up. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 14:49, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Zygarde Reappearances

I believe that Zygarde reappears every time you defeat the Elite Four, just like Mewtwo does. I think this should be researched and noted in the Game Locations section. - unsigned comment from NerfPlayeR135 (talkcontribs)

It does indeed respawn if fainted after you defeat the Elite Four. I've confirmed it myself just a moment ago. Shiramu Kuromu (talk) 00:48, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Zygarde is in a trio with Xerneas and Yveltal

Admit it guys, Zygarde is THE most blatantly OBVIOUS Rayquaza Expy to have ever existed. Here's a few things to note here:

  • Zygarde has a Green color scheme, while Xerneas and Yveltal have a Blue and Red coloration to match the RGB Color Palette.
  • Xerneas and Yveltal are both designed based on the letters X and Y, and the first letters in their names are even those same letters. Zygarde not only is shaped in the manner of a Z due to being a serpent, but also has it's name begin with Z.
  • Zygarde's signature ability, Aura Break, ONLY effects Fairy Aura and Dark Aura, which are ONLY known to be available to Xerneas and Yveltal. This isn't too different from Rayquaza in how it cancels out the abilities of the other two members of the trio.
  • Xerneas is the Life Pokemon, Yveltal is the Destruction Pokemon, and Zygarde is the Order Pokemon.
  • It's PokeDex Entries don't make reference to the other two, but bare in mind, neither did Rayquaza, Giratina, or Kyurem had any references to the others until their versions were released.

With that in mind, I can't see how ANYBODY can believe Zygarde is not related to either of them, as it's so obvious it's painful to say the least. The fact that Zygarde is the ONLY Non-Event Legendary from Kalos other than Xerneas and Yveltal doesn't help matters, and neither Diancie nor the still unconfirmed Volcanion and Hoopa look like they'd be anywhere near related to Xerneas or Yveltal as much as Zygarde does.
