Reshiram (Japanese: レシラム Reshiram) is a major character who appeared in White—Victini and Zekrom and Black—Victini and Reshiram.

In the movies



Hero of Truth and Reshiram

Reshiram was commanded by the Hero of Truth one thousand years prior to the events of the films. At the end of their war with the Hero of Ideals and his Zekrom, it returned to the form of a Light Stone and was sealed away in the caves inside the Sword of the Vale.

During the actual events of the films, Reshiram helps Zekrom save the world from the corrupted Dragon Force by funneling it into the Sword of the Vale. It also aids by trying to destroy the Protecting Pillars and then helping guide the Sword of the Vale back down to the ground.

In White—Victini and Zekrom

Sometime during the three years he spent traveling the world prior to the events of the film, Damon happened to overhear Reshiram calling to him while he observed the ruined Kingdom of the Vale alongside Mannes. Together, the two of them went down into the caves inside the Sword of the Vale, where they became separated. At the bottom of the cave Damon discovered the Light Stone containing Reshiram and reawakened it.

Damon and Reshiram

With Reshiram's help, Damon traveled to the villages of the People of the Vale and managed to convince them to support him. Its first appearance in the film comes when it helps Damon stop a giant tornado in the desert along with a herd of stampeding Bouffalant. It later appears in a flashback as Damon tells the story of his travels.

When he raises the Sword of the Vale and comes to be opposed by Ash, Cilan, Iris, Carlita and Juanita, Damon summons Reshiram to aid him. It battles Juanita's Golurk, which Reshiram easily defeats.

The second time it fights Golurk, it is interrupted by Zekrom, which Ash has discovered and allied with. The two dragons battle after Zekrom drops Ash at the castle, ending in Reshiram's defeat. Zekrom and Reshiram eventually realize that Damon's actions have unleashed a corrupted Dragon Force that threatens to destroy the world, and both dragons blows away the clouds to reveal this fact to Damon.

Reason: Role in Black—Victini and Reshiram

Reshiram appears in the story of the People of the Vale, but does not appear itself until Ash discovers the Light Stone inside the Sword of the Vale. It questions Ash about what truth he is pursuing, and when he answers that he wants to save Victini, Reshiram is satisfied in Ash's truths and appears before him as an ally.

It bursts out of the cave and rescues Juanita's Golurk by stopping Damon's Zekrom's attack.

Personality and characteristics

Reshiram appears to be a Pokémon who is willing to work with those who seek truths. In White—Victini and Zekrom, it allied with Damon after seeing his desire to restore the Kingdom of the Vale. In Black—Victini and Reshiram, it allied with Ash after seeing his desire to save Victini. It later proves to be a helpful Pokémon as it along with Zekrom help in relocating the Sword of the Vale and quelling the corrupted Dragon Force.
