Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

legend birds

I almost NEVER nickname my legendary Pokemon.  However, while playing Pokemon Sapphire a few years back,  I did create nicknames for the three Legendary Birds of Kanto — the trio of Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres.

I thought it might be interesting to name the legendary birds after legendary American “muscle cars” from a bygone era.

I named the Flying/Electric type bird Zapdos (Japanese サンダー  for “thunder”) Dodge after a 1970 Dodge Charger R/T with a 426 Hemi engine.  Arguably “Charger” would be a good name.

I named the Flying/Ice type bird Articuno ( Japanese フリーザー  meaning “freezer”) Plymouth after a 1970 Plymouth RoadRunner SuperBird.  Of course “RoadRunner” is a bird, but I think of the desert Road Runner, so it may not match an Ice type.

I named the Flying/Fire type bird  Moltres (Japanese ファイヤー for “fire”) Pontiac after a 1970 Pontiac Firebird SuperSport.  Yes, “Firebird” would also be a good nickname.  “Trans Am” may be good, because these cars had a fire bird emblem covering the hood.

What would be a good names for these legendary birds?  Discuss. Discuss.
