Reshiram (Japanese: レシラム Reshiram) is a dual-type Dragon/Fire legendary Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Reshiram is the version mascot of Pokémon Black, appearing on the boxart.

Along with Zekrom and Kyurem, it is a member of the Tao trio, which exists in the legends of the Unova region.

Kyurem will become White Kyurem upon using the DNA Splicers to fuse with Reshiram.

Biology

Physiology

Reshiram is a white-colored, bipedal Pokémon of seemingly draconian and mammalian basis, with some of the avian features of feathers. Reshiram's snout is mammalian in appearance, most resembling something vulpine or even canine, or possibly even a goat. Streaming out from the upper side of the snout and outward from the head is a long, voluminous wispy mane, the top of which forms a spike or small head-crest of some sort. Reshiram's face is fringed with spiky features, with one small, pointed extension of it below the chin.

Reshiram's neck is long and slender, with a collar-esque protrusion of fur or feathers seeming held in place by two somewhat glass-like neck-bands, with similar bands present on the "wrists" of Reshiram's forelimbs. Reshiram's forelimbs are expansive, wing-like appendages or some unusual sort of wings themselves; the beginning portions of the limbs are slender and generally conventionally arm-like, but flare out into a more wing-like, feathered section farther on the limb, sporting four claws on the leading edge. On Reshiram's chest is a feathered feature, with the lower portion protruding outward to a point. Long feathers spread out from Reshiram's thighs, its feet with large claws—three in front, and the one in the back positioned at an angle somewhat like high heels. Reshiram's tail is a thick mass of a center-most plume and ribbon-like secondary extensions, surrounded by two large bands. This tail is based on an electric turbine.

Gender differences

Reshiram is a genderless species.

Reshiram's tail turbine activated.

Special abilities

Reshiram has a jet engine-like tail used to accelerate itself when flying in high speeds. It can send flames into the air from its tail to incinerate everything around it. It can move the atmosphere and change the world's weather by flaring its tail. Reshiram is the only Pokémon that can learn Fusion Flare and Blue Flare, though Victini can have the former from several events and Kyurem can learn it after merging with Reshiram. Also, If Reshiram uses Fusion Flare immediately after being hit by Fusion Bolt, its tail turbine activates and power is doubled.

Behavior

In a Unova myth about the twin heroes, as Reshiram sided with the older brother who sought truth, it firmly believes in truth.

Trivia

Reshiram and Zekrom at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2010
  • Reshiram was first revealed simultaneously alongside Zekrom on both the official English and Japanese Pokémon websites on May 28, 2010. This makes them the first two Pokémon simultaneously revealed worldwide.
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Reshiram.
  • Reshiram has the highest Special Attack of all Fire-type Pokémon. Tied with Ho-Oh, Reshiram has the highest base stat total of all Fire-type Pokémon.
  • Reshiram is required to be caught in Pokémon Black in order to progress on the story and battle N. Running away from it or defeating it will appear as if nothing happened; also, defeating it does not give any experience points. It and Zekrom are the only legendary Pokémon in the main series games that are required to be caught to progress the story. However, it does not have to be caught if the player has a full party and PC. Instead, it will later appear at Dragonspiral Tower (but it still does not give any experience points if it is defeated)..
  • Due to its Ability, no combination of types and Abilities is resistant to both types of Reshiram's STAB attacks.
  • Reshiram, as well as Zekrom, made an appearance alongside Pikachu and a Poké Ball in 2010's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Origin

Reshiram and its counterpart Zekrom are based on the concept of yin and yang in Taoism, directly referenced by Reshiram's Japanese species: the White Yang Pokémon. According to Ken Sugimori, Reshiram has a light, airy, ladylike design to contrast to Zekrom's tough and manly look (despite this, it speaks with a distinctly male voice in both versions of the 14th movie). Its tail, the center point of its design, is based on an electric turbine.[1] Appearance wise, it resembles a mix of animals, including a bird, a canid such as a fox or a wolf, a pterosaur, and a Wyvern. The crest on its head and its feathers resemble smoke trails as well as white fire, which can burn up to temperatures of 1,500 °C (2,730 °F). The mythology about how Zekrom and Reshiram came about, regarding two brothers infighting, also bears some similarities to Romulus and Remus or Cain and Abel. There is also same resemblance to the Zoroastrian belief of two equally powerful deities, one representing light and truth and the other representing lies and darkness. In this case, Reshiram can resemble Ahura Mazda, due to its light and winged appearance and the fact that it sided with truth, but also the fact that Reshiram is a Fire-type Pokémon, and Ahura Mazda was associated with fire.

Name origin

Reshiram is derived from 白 shiro (white). Ken Sugimori has also stated that Re was used because it was a softer sound than Zekrom's Ze, as Reshiram is a less physically powerful character.[2]
