Everything we know about Cobalion
Alongside Terrakion, Virizion and Keldeo, Cobalion is a member of the legendary Swords of Justice found in the Unova region.
The Swords of Justice protect other Pokémon from the threat of humans destroying their natural habitats. They have been known to fight armies of humans when the need arose.
A notable example of their bravery was when the Swords of Justice protected wild Pokémon during a forest fire in the Moor of Icirrus. Without the help of the Swords of Justice, these wild Pokémon would have perished. Cobalion helped direct these Pokémon away from the flames.
The Swords of Justice are based upon the novel, The Three Musketeers, by Alexandre Dumas, pére. Each member of this legendary quartet represents a different musketeer, with Cobalion being Athos. This explains why Cobalion is the leader of the Swords of Justice.
