  • All three of them have an a at the end of their names.
  • Giratina is the only member that has multiple forms.
  • They are all secondary Dragon type, similar to the following Tao Trio, which all have Dragon as their primary type. Dragon type may be a reference to their enormous power and ancient age, as well as a mechanical explanation of their natural might besides their designs.
