'''Kyurem''' (Japanese: '''キュレム''' ''Kyuremu'') is a {{Type|Dragon}}/{{Type|Ice}}-[[Types|type]] [[Legendary Pokémon]] and the highest levelled stationed [[Pokémon (species)|Pokémon]] in [[Pokémon Black and White (game)|Pokémon Black and White]] (Lv. 75). Kyurem is the third highest-leveled stationary Pokémon to be found in the games, surpassed only by [[Arceus]] and [[Magikarp]] in the [[Resort Area]] in [[Pokémon Platinum]]. The player must navigate through an extremely difficult maze to get to the [[Giant Chasm]] and thus, Kyurem. It has three signature moves, the most of all Legendaries. They are [[Freeze Shock]], [[Ice Burn]], and [[Glaciate]]. In [[Pokémon Black and White Versions 2]], Kyurem has two different forms that can be created by fusing either [[Zekrom]] or [[Reshiram]] with Kyurem using the DNA Splicers(Drayden's family treasure). Those special forms are known as Black Kyurem and White Kyurem, respectively. Its type remains the same as Black and White Kyurem; {{Type|Dragon}}/{{Type|Ice}}

Kyurem (Japanese: キュレム Kyuremu) is a Dragon/Ice-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation V. It is part of the Tao Trio, along with Reshiram and Zekrom.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Kyurem Formes

Kyurem's New Forms (Black Kyurem and White Kyurem)

Kyurem is portrayed as an ice-covered, hunch-backed draconian entity with small arms and large bulky legs, along with a damaged wing and chipped horn. Its ice-covered wings are attached to its shoulder blades. It has a fin-like structure by its neck with a small yellow streak down its head. Ice covers its face completely except for its eyes, which are yellow. Additionally, Kyurem has two other forms in which can be fused with either Zekrom or Reshiram.

Special AbilitiesEdit

Kyurem can produce ultracold air. It can also change forme by using the DNA Splicers (Drayden's family treasure) to turn Reshiram or Zekrom back into the Light Stone or Dark Stone and then merging with it. The process can also be reversed. In Black and White Versions 2, when under the control of Ghetsis, it appears to turn into some sort of awakened form where its wings are revealed to be node-like appendages that absorb energy, as well as tendrils that shoot fiery energy which it uses to trap Zekrom/Reshiram, then absorb them.

BehaviorEdit

HabitatEdit

Kyurem makes it's home in the Giant Chasm of the Unova region.

OriginEdit

There are conflicting ideas on the origin of Kyurem. According to the old woman in Lacunosa Town, Kyurem descended from an icy comet, which simultaneously created the Giant Chasm, and took residence there. In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, however, it is stated by Drayden that Kyurem was created alongside Reshiram and Zekrom and may be all that's left. Also, in-game, it is found out that the substance that makes up the Giant Chasm dates from the same time period as Dragonspiral Tower. This version of the story is more viable based on the Pokédex entry which states that Kyurem wishes to be completed with truth and ideals, thereby becoming the Original Dragon once more.

EvolutionEdit

Kyurem does not evolve.

Kyurem is the penultimate boss of the main storyline. He attacks with both a fiery Dragon Pulse that blasts in a straight line, or Glaciate, a freezing wind that's a sure hit, and also lowers speed. However, after being defeated, it is revealed that it is actually being controlled by a greater force, called the Bittercold.

TriviaEdit

  • It's revealed in Black and White 2 that Kyurem, along with Zekrom and Reshiram were all part of a single Pokémon.
  • Kyurem has yellow eyes, which represent Zekrom's lightning. Zekrom has red eyes, which stand for Reshiram's fire. Reshiram has blue eyes, representing Kyurem's ice.
  • When encountered in the wild after navigating through the Giant Chasm, Kyurem is at Level 75. This is the third highest level of Pokémon encountered in the wild after Lv. 80 Arceus and Lv. 100 Magikarp.
  • In Lacunosa Town, people said long ago Kyurem came out at night and took people and Pokémon away to eat them. It is also said that the villagers built large walls to keep Kyurem out, but that wouldn't make sense since it could fly.
  • Kyurem has the third highest stat total of all Generation V Pokémon, 660 being surpassed only by Reshiram and Zekrom who have equal totals of 680. However, when in either Black or White form, it's stat total jumps to 700, being the second highest stat total of all Pokémon, second only to Arceus.
  • When caught, Kyurem holds the Comet Shard, an item also found within its lair, the Giant Chasm. It sells for Poké Dollar 60,000 if sold to the ore collector in Icirrus City.
  • Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem share a remixed version of one battle theme. Reshiram's has a fire effect and Zekrom's has an electricity effect, but Kyurem's has a bass playing in the background instead.
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Kyurem.
  • Kyurem's species may be the Boundary Pokémon because it may keep Reshiram and Zekrom from fighting each other, acting as the "peacemaker".
  • Kyurem is the only member of its trio not to have a signature ability, as it has Pressure, while Zekrom and Reshiram have Teravolt and Turboblaze, respectively. Although when Kyurem transforms into Black Kyurem and White Kyurem, it replaces its Pressure ability with Zekrom and Reshiram's abilities, Teravolt and Turboblaze, respectively.
  • Kyurem changes into Black Kyurem when it takes energy from Zekrom and turns into White Kyurem when it takes energy from Reshiram in the movie MS015: Kyurem VS The Sacred Swordsman - Keldeo.
  • It's the only Pokémon so far that can fuse and change form at the same time.
  • Kyurem has the 2nd most forms of all Legendary Pokémon, 3. The most being 4 from Deoxys.
  • Kyurem is the only Pokémon that changes forms by fusing with another Pokémon.
  • Kyurem's learnsets in its two forms are special in the way that two of its moves change: Scary Face gets replaced by either Fusion Bolt or Fusion Flare for Black Kyurem or White Kyurem respectively, and Glaciate gets replaced by its other signature moves: Freeze Shock for Black Kyurem and Ice Burn for White Kyurem.
  • Black Kyurem pounds the ground with its arms in its animated sprites.
  • Kyurem's Fusion Bolt move is smaller than its body.
  • In the movie Kyurem vs. The Sword of Justice, he is depicted as the strongest Pokémon. However, Arceus has a higher stat total.
