Content Disclosure: Don’t read beyond this point if you haven’t completed the Starfall Street quest series!
As we solved Pokémon Scarlet and VioletIn the Starfall Street quest, in which you’ll have to battle a series of bases run by Team Star at the behest of the mysterious Cassiopeia, we can’t help but wonder… why are these names so weird? so weird? The Team Star gangs are named after things like “Segin” and “Schedar,” and we feel like it’s something in Spanish, some kind of anagram, or some kind of document. references that we are not smart enough to get.
It turned out to be the last one – and these names allude to the actual constellation Cassiopeia, which is made up of five stars in the shape of a W (it’s thought to be Queen Cassiopeia’s chair). Team Star gangs are named after these five stars: Schedar, Caph, Segin, Navi and Ruchbah.
But wait! There’s more! Take a look at the locations of the bases on the map, and you’ll discover that… they also take the form of Cassiopeia.
