Australia named three new beetles PokemonThe iconic trio of legendary birds of the first generation of monsters: Zapdos Articuno with Mortres.
Dr. Darren Pollock, professor of entomology at Eastern New Mexico University (ENMU), and Yun Hsiao, a doctoral student at the Australian National University, named some newly discovered beetles after the first generation of legendary birds, bringing some legendary Pokémon into reality. -This is all due to scientists’ familiarity with the series as they grow up.
In a research paper published in Canadian Entomologists in December 2020, the newly named Binburrum Articuno, Binburrum Moltres and Binburrum Zapdos were identified and named (thanks to IGN).
“The choice of naming a new species is not easy; it must be different from any other species described.” Pollock explained in a statement on the university’s website. “One way to ensure this is to create a name that no one can think of.
“Yun said that he was an aspiring Pokémon trainer when he was young, so because the specimens of the three new species are rare, he suggested that we name the three legendary bird Pokémon.
“Naturally, I think this is a good idea, so the new species shown to the world in 2020 are Binburrum articuno, Binburrum moltres and Binburrum zapdos, all of these Both are made by Hsiao and Pollock.
If you like the idea of using art to influence your life and making scientific journals in this way, there will be more good news: the two intend to name more Pokemon in the coming months and years The newly announced species (if their work agrees anyway, and their plans).
“We have plans to describe the new species of this genus that have emerged since the completion of this article, which may contain more Pokémon names,” Pollock concluded.
