The Yggdrasil Trio is a trio of Legendary Pokémon that originate in the Kalos region and comprises Zygarde, Xerneas and Yveltal. Yggdrasil is a huge tree in Norse cosmology[1]. It is said to be protected by three guardians. A bird protects the upper part of the tree. A deer protects the soil of the tree. A snake protects the underground of the tree. The same is true for Xerneas, Yveltal and Zygarde.
