Trifecta is Emile's Dodrio in his Let's Play of Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. She was the sixth and final Pokémon to join Emile's team.

Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness Edit

Episode 35: Unlucky Duck Edit

Dodrio was snagged from Chaser Furgy.

Episode 40: Trinity Edit

She was named by Stephen Baviello and AtomicPokeBall. By the end of the story, she barely did anything to help the team, leaving many to wonder what Emile was planning to do with her.


  • Sky Attack
  • Drill Peck
  • Agility
  • Tri Attack


  • MasaeAnela's drawing depicts two of the three heads arguing, the other one leaned away, obviously embarrassed. Many have considered Trifecta to be a Pokémon personification of TheRunawayGuys.
    • The left head somewhat resembles ProtonJon. The middle head resembles Emile. And, the right head represents NintendoCaprisun.
  • Emile has publicly acknowledged that Trifecta did not perform well during the LP.[1][2]
  • Trifecta fainted in her first battle from a critical hit.
  • Many people have picked on Trifecta in the comments, calling her weak, useless, and telling Chugga to replace her with Eldes's Shadow Salamence before the final fight against Greevil. Some believed she would be the last one standing in Greevil's fight, she didn't even get sent out.
  • Chugga hoped Trifecta will be helpful in the post-game. This becomes true as according to a Twitter post, Trifecta performed well in the last ten floors of Mt. Battle, to the point where she is the highest leveled member of the team. Along with this she survived and was extremely helpful in the entire last battle with Miror B.
  • Chugga says that Trifecta seems to perform better off-screen than when recording, as he says that Trifecta doesn't seem to faint very often whenever he was grinding.
  • A theory states that when Trifecta is sent out before attacking all three heads would argue with each other not paying attention to the enemy which leads to their downfall.
