History

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

Having been born at the same time as Reshiram and Zekrom, Kyurem is considered the strongest Dragon-type Pokemon in the world. It can harness the powers of both Reshiram and Zekrom at will, allowing it to transform into White Kyurem and Black Kyurem respectively. According to Keldeo, one cannot become a Sword of Justice until one defeats Kyurem, who the Colt Pokemon is eager to fight against in order to become a member of that position.

As regular Kyurem
Residing in the abandoned mines of its mountain sanctuary, Kyurem was challenged to a battle by Keldeo, who claimed to be a Sword of Justice but in truth was training to become one. The Boundary Pokemon engaged Keldeo in battle, and although the Colt Pokemon managed to land a hit on Kyurem, the latter soon proved to be too strong for Keldeo, and the fight escalated with Kyurem breaking off Keldeo's horn with a Shadow Claw attack. Terrakion, who had observed the battle nearby, attempted to stop the fight to help Keldeo, despite Cobalion's warnings. Enraged by the intrusion, Kyurem shifts into White Kyurem and uses Ice Burn on Cobalion, Virizion, and Terrakion, locking them in a block of ice. Keldeo is overcome with fear and flees during the middle of the battle. Furious, Kyurem began pursuing the Colt Pokemon, angrily declaring that their battle is not over.

Determined to finish their battle, Kyurem, aided by its Cryogonal followers, relentlessly hunts down Keldeo, but is stalled by Ash, Iris, and Cilan, who found the Colt Pokemon and befriended it. After being lured away from Keldeo by Iris, and later Cilan, Kyurem returns to the abandoned mines, where Ash would later enter in his attempt to free the trapped Swords of Justice when Keldeo was once again gripped with fear. Kyurem, enraged by the intrusion of a human in its lair, confronts Ash, who was striking at the ice that held the Swords of Justice to free them. When Ash refused to leave, the Boundary Pokemon attacks him with Dragon Pulse, but the strike is blocked by Keldeo, who finally gained the courage to face Kyurem.

Keldeo admits to Kyurem that it lied about being a Sword of Justice and did so in order to do battle with the Boundary Pokemon, but Kyurem revealed that it already knew that Keldeo was a liar from the start and then demand that they end their battle. Through Ash's support, Keldeo transformed into his Resolute Form and proceeded with its battle against Kyurem, with the Boundary Pokemon still proving to be too much. As it seemed that Kyurem won the battle by freezing Keldeo solid using Freeze Shock as Black Kyurem, Keldeo breaks free and was able to learn a move called Secret Sword, and with it, the Colt Pokemon landed a direct hit on Kyurem.

As White Kyurem
Pleased by this turn of events, and witnessing Keldeo's true power, Kyurem attacks at full strength by unleashing another Freeze Shock attack, which Keldeo blocks, but causes the attack to threaten Ash, Iris, Cilan, and the freed Swords of Justice. Keldeo leaps in and splits the Freeze Shock in half with Secret Sword, preventing the attack from hitting its friends but takes major damage in the process. This resulted in the Colt Pokemon collapsing, and Kyurem pins Keldeo down by its horn. The Colt Pokemon admits its defeat, but instead of finishing the battle, Kyurem reverts back to its normal form, impressed that Keldeo chose to protect its friends over winning the fight, earning Kyurem's respect. When the mines began to collapse from the damage it sustained from the battle, Kyurem changes into White Kyurem and simply freezes the collapsing pieces into place, preventing the destruction of the mines while the Swords of Justice, Keldeo, and the others escape. The Boundary Pokemon then shifts back into its normal form and lumbers back into its lair without a word.
