Biology

Physiology

Zekrom is a bipedal Pokémon of draconian and dinosaur-like basis. Zekrom is mainly a shade of dark gray, with darker patches on various portions of its body. It has red eyes and a small horn-like protrusion on the tip of its snout, with its head sporting a plume tipped with light-blue coloration. At the base of its neck is a black, stud-like feature, and atop its shoulders are similar, larger features resembling armor padding.The bases of its wings also have such padding, and a fanned, splayed, seemingly webbed shape with a small "wing-spike" on one edge. The lower length of Zekrom's arms extenuate into splayed, seemingly webbed, somewhat baseball-mitt-like formations, with three-clawed, dark-colored hands on the undersides. The front portion of Zekrom's waist is black-colored, with its belly and thighs having thin striations down their length. The knees are black, as are the foremost parts of its three-clawed feet and spiked heels. Zekrom's tail consists of large, round, conical and spiked formation, likened to a electricity generator, with a black inner portion and bands on the tip of the outside portion.

Gender differences

Zekrom is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Zekrom is the only Pokémon known to learn Cross Thunder and Lightning Strike. It has a power generator that can be used to power up its tail.

Trivia

  • Zekrom was first revealed simultaneously alongside Reshiram on both the official English and Japanese Pokémon websites on May 28, 2010.
    • This makes the two the first Pokémon simultaneously revealed worldwide.
    • They are also the 499th and the 500th Pokémon revealed to Japanese audiences.
  • On May 31, 2010, two weeks prior to the official revelation of Zekrom's type, Shōko Nakagawa spoke about her love of Template:Type2 Pokémon on her blog and mentioned that this meant she wanted to get a Zekrom. This statement was then quickly removed.
  • Zekrom is required to be caught in Pokémon White in order to progress on the story and battle N. Running away from it or beating it will appear as if nothing happened; also, beating it does not give any experience points.

Origin

Zekrom and its counterpart Reshiram are based on the concept of yin and yang. Appearance wise, it somewhat resembles a midsized to large theropod dinosaur, such as Allosaurus, and a European dragon. The crest on its head is a reference to thunderclouds. Its tail resembles an electric generator.

Name origin

  • The krom (クロム kuromu) in its name comes from the Japanese word 黒む kuromu, which means "turning black" or "tinged with darkness".
