Some of these also have a third part. Tyrantrum's name also comes from Tyrant and Solgaleo's name also comes from Leo.

Cool bit of trivia, but for the purposes of this quiz I tried to pick the two “best” origins. For Tyrantrum the fact that it’s a T-Rex was most important thing, and for Solgaleo the words Sol and Leo don’t cover the full name whereas Sol and Galileo do.
