Kyurem (Japanese: キュレム Kyurem) is a dual-type / legendary Pokémon.
While it is not known to evolve into or from any Pokémon, it has two other formes, which are activated by using the DNA Splicers on it and either Zekrom or Reshiram, resulting in a fusion that removes Zekrom or Reshiram from the party until the fusion is undone. It will then become Black Kyurem (with Zekrom) or White Kyurem (with Reshiram). However, it is impossible to own a Black Kyurem and a White Kyurem at the same time, as the game rejects the second fusion of Kyurem with Reshiram/Zekrom.
Along with Reshiram and Zekrom, Kyurem is a member of the Tao trio, which exists in the legends of the Unova region.
As both Black Kyurem and White Kyurem, it is the version mascot of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.
Kyurem is a gray and blue coloured, bipedal Pokémon of indefinable but seemingly draconic basis. Kyurem has a unique blue head and snout and has yellow eyes without pupils, has a pair of pointed light bluish horns on its head and a yellow crest on its skull. Its jaws are frozen shut by the ice covering its head. Kyurem's neck is long and gray in colour with lines running around its whole body, legs, arms and tail. Kyurem has two arms, each with its own claw and each arm is jointed together from its blue oddly shaped wings. Its wings are believed to be used for flying as well as storing cold air and have two spikes of ice each. The ice covering the wings is breakable, revealing gray tendril-like appendages on Kyurem's back. The right side of its body seems to be damaged in some way, as the wing and horn on its head on that side are shorter; the right side of its head also has a spiked edge near its jaw hinge that is absent from its left. Its legs are somewhat slender, unlike Reshiram or Zekrom, and has three sharp ice-like claws on each enormous foot. Its tail has three blue icicle-shaped spikes on its tip. Like its fellow Tao trio members, its tail appears to be some sort of propulsion device or a container of energy; exactly what it is based on is unclear, but it may be a damaged turbine.
Kyurem has two alternate forms, Black Kyurem and White Kyurem, which are formed by combining with Zekrom and Reshiram, respectively, and share many aspects of their designs with them. Their legs are just like Normal Kyurem's legs, but shorter and the middle toe is now ice; White Kyurem has some extra icy details on the legs. Their tails are just like Reshiram's and Zekrom's tails but they are attached to the body with three gray parts of skin. The tails seem to be fully able to move and contain four holes: they are vertical on Black Kyurem and horizontal on White Kyurem's silver rings. Their torsos are similar, but Black Kyurem's torso is more bulky than White Kyurem's torso, which is slim. Their shoulders are covered in 'squares' of ice with two pins protruding from each which can come out and 'plug in' the aforementioned holes. Their arms are quite different: Black Kyurem has Zekrom's arms, but more muscular and without wings, which are attached to the icy shoulders mentioned before, and its left arm and wing are frozen; White Kyurem has thin arms with two rings and three claws each, wings between the rings on its forearms, and its right arm and wing are frozen. Their necks are the same shape, and are long like Normal Kyurem's but now upright; Black Kyurem uses Zekrom's skin and White Kyurem uses Reshiram's fur. In both forms, the ice covering one of Kyurem's jaws (lower for Black Kyurem, upper for White Kyurem) has partially disappeared, allowing it to move its mouth properly.
- No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Kyurem.
- Kyurem has the highest base stat total of all Ice-type Pokémon; as Black Kyurem and White Kyurem it also has the highest base stat total of all Dragon-type Pokémon.
- Black Kyurem and White Kyurem have the highest Attack and Special Attack base stats, respectively, of all Dragon- and Ice-type Pokémon.
- White Kyurem is the tallest Ice-type Pokémon and the tallest Pokémon introduced in Generation V.
- Unlike most Pokémon with no evolutionary relatives, Kyurem can learn a move—Imprison—twice with neither instance being at level 1. It shares this trait with Plusle, Palkia, Smeargle, Reshiram, and Zekrom.
- Kyurem is the only Pokémon that has a base stat total of 660 (as Normal Kyurem) and the only Pokémon that has a base stat total of 700 (as Black Kyurem and White Kyurem).
- Kyurem is the only member of the Tao trio that cannot learn its respective Elemental Fang.
- Although several Pokémon are the result of two or more individuals combining (Dugtrio, Slowbro, Slowking, Magneton, Metang, Metagross, Weezing), Black Kyurem and White Kyurem are the only ones to be shown doing so in the main series games. They are also the only fusions that are not part of a Pokémon’s evolution and are the only fusions which have been shown to be reversible.
- Kyurem is the only Pokémon to be the version mascot of both versions of a paired version.
- Despite being larger when fused, both fused forms are lighter than the Pokémon it’s fused with.
