    The best origins of Pokemon come from the legendary three from Hoenn. Rayquaza, Groudon, and Kyogure all make up what some call the "Biblical Trio." This is because each Pokemon corresponds to one of the three great beasts of the Bible; Ziz, Behemoth, and Leviathan respectively. Ziz ruled the sky, Behemoth the earth, and Leviathan the sea. Sounds a lot like that Hoenn Trio, no? Fun fact, when the world ends, there will be one last feast for humanity where you get to eat Ziz and all the others. So, if Rayquaza is Ziz, that means you get to eat him right before the end of the world. How's that for a back story?!?

    I think Pineco is Coops' secret favorite pokemon, he talks about it in every video.
