DABIRDINDANORF, also known as The Bird in the North, is a catchphrase used by some members of the Pokémon GO Mystic team to identify each others. The slogan originated from a crossover ode to the Game of Thrones and Pokémon universes on Reddit's /r/PokemonGo community in July 2016.


DABIRDADANORF started on the /r/PokemonGO subreddit with a post[1] made by reddit user stringerbellsprout on July 7th, 2016 which read:

'Blue team knows no team but the bird in the North, whose name is Articuno."

"Your team was butchered at the Red Wedding, MysticLuver6969, but you refused the call," "You swore allegiance to Team Mystic, PokeBluBoy, but in our hour of greatest need, you refused the call." "And you, LordMystic, your gym was skinned alive by Team Instinct. Still you refused the call. But Blue Team remembers. The North remembers. We know no team but the bird in the North whose name is Articuno. I don't care if he's an Ice bird. Lugia's blood runs through his veins. He's my bird from this day until his last day."

In the comments section, Redditor Mitclax replied to the original post with "DABIRDADANORF," which quickly became endorsed as an unofficial motto of the Mystic team.


Many members of the /r/PokemonGO and /r/PokemonGOMystic communities[2] asked that this be the "official" motto for Team Mystic, but due to the community being divided and no official motto being released by Niantic or Pokémon GO, the subreddit decided not to select an official motto.

However, #dabirdindanorf has now become a fairly common Team Mystic hashtag across social media.[3][4]
