Reshiram (Japanese: レシラム Reshiramu) is a Dragon/Fire-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation V that is the mascot for Pokémon Black. Reshiram is the Vast White Pokémon. Reshiram's unique ability is called Turboblaze. It has a move called Fusion Flare, which when used after Zekrom's Fusion Bolt, creates a stronger attack. Reshiram and Zekrom were one whole Pokémon until both split into separate entities, according to old tales. It is part of the Tao Trio, along with its Dragon/Electric-type counterpart, Zekrom, and the Dragon/Ice-type Pokémon, Kyurem.

Reshiram in Pokémon Black

Reshiram is a large, white, Dragon-like Pokémon that seems to share its theme with its counterpart, Zekrom. It has striking blue eyes and several white rings around its thin, swan-like neck and flowing tail, with a single band around each of its hands. It also has feather-like arms that end in four claws and a flowing white mane. Its chest feathers resemble the design of the Silver Wing. The lower portion of its body protrudes outward to a point.


Reshiram does not evolve.

  • It's revealed in Black and White 2 that Kyurem, along with Zekrom and Reshiram were all part of a single pokemon.

  • Reshiram is the only known Fire Pokémon that is not weak to Water.
  • In Movie 14, Reshiram has the same roar as the monster Megaguirus, from the Godzilla franchise.

Megaguirus' roar had previously been used in Movie 11 when Zero's fighter released an attack.
  • Reshiram also appears in a Dream World minigame; if the WIFI Reshiram from the White version game is sent to the Dream World, in the special home Victini appears to the player, and in the minigame's intro, Victini fails to destroy the barrier alone, so the player must ask his/her WIFI Reshiram to help destroy the barrier by collecting power ups, and at the end, Reshiram destroys the barrier by using a flame attack.
  • It protects the PokéPark in PokéPark 2 while Zekrom protects Wish Park.

  • Reshiram appears to be based on the Yu-Gi-Oh! monster "Blue-Eyes White Dragon"as both are white dragons with blue eyes.
  • In Hyperdimension Neptunia, a DLC weapon for Ram, the Staff of Ideals, is based on Reshiram when fused with Kyurem.
