The Tao trio, sometimes called the energy trio is the collective term used to refer to the three powerful legendary Pokémon of the Unova Region: Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem. According to Unova Myths, the trio were created during the war plaguing the region.

Much like members of other legendary trios, the three Pokémon have similar appearances. Each has Dragon as their secondary type. Reshiram and Zekrom both got the same base stat total of 680 while Kyurem has 660.

Each of the members of the trio have control of their own types and sides. Reshiram represents the concept of yang and controls Fire, Zekrom represents the concept of yin and controls Thunder and Kyurem represents the concept of wuji and controls Ice.

Mythos

The mythologies of the trio are different yet somehow connected. The origins of Zekrom and Reshiram are told in legends, as they were once a single powerful Dragon Pokémon used by two brothers ruling the nation. However, the brothers' rule caused great conflicts as they fought over how best to rule the nation, and, due to the fighting, the dragon was split into two separate Pokémon. Each dragon resided with its respective master, Reshiram with the older brother and Zekrom with the younger brother, and they decided to fight in an endless battle. It was foretold that they would fight until the region of Unova was destroyed. To stop the battle, the people decided to put both dragons into a deep sleep.

At the beginning of Black and White, one of them resides in the Dragon Spiral Tower and either one of them were awakened by N to let history repeat itself.

Kyurem's origins are much different than those of the other two. The third dragon came down to Earth from an icy meteor and crashed into a place called Giant Hole. An old legend in Kagome Town describing Kyurem claims that it would take people and Pokémon away from the town and eat them; this is why the town is now surrounded by a giant wall. Another claims is that Kyurem is the corpse of the Dragon Pokémon used by two brothers after it got split into two separate entities.

Trivia

  • Like the legendary beasts in HeartGold and SoulSilver, each member of the trio share battle music that is slightly remixed to match their secondary typing.
    • Zekrom's theme has a crackling thunder effect and Reshiram has a burning fire effect. However, Kyurem does not have a special effect, but has an extra slapped bass part playing in the background.
  • It is so far the only legendary trio with no known trio master as of yet.
