History

Black & White chapter

Cobalion congratulating Keldeo on mastering the sword

Prior to the start of the Black & White chapter, Cobalion, alongside Terrakion and Virizion, protected Pokémon during the war between humans and Pokémon. Once the three starting fighting, they quickly ended the war.

Cobalion first appeared in A Misunderstanding, in Mistralton Cave, stopping Trish's Heatmor from attacking Terrakion and Virizion, causing Trish to drop her torch. The torch soon set the cave on fire, trapping one of Shoko's Patrat. While Black and Costa attempt to put out the fire, Virizion jumps up to protect Patrat, while Terrakion makes an escape route. Cobalion puts out the fire by smashing a boulder over top it and the three make their escape with Patrat. After Shoko and Trish attempt to get Patrat back, the Swords of Justice capture the rest of their Pokémon and escape. After being tracked down by Black, he pleads with them that the Trainers are not bad people and asks them to consider their Pokémon's feelings. Once thinking it over they return the Pokémon. The Swords of Justice quickly depart to join Keldeo.

In The Shadow Triad, the three continue to make their way to Keldeo, communicating through telepathy, discussing Black's courage and selflessness. Cobalion then notices the presence of the Shadow Triad and destroys the boulder they are hiding behind. While Terrakion and Virizion prepare their swords, Cobalion tells them to wait and uses Metal Burst. The Swords of Justice then make their escape, as Cobalion sees humans who wish to exploit their powers as unworthy of their swords. The three soon meet with their student, who is pleased of their arrival. Keldeo then begins its final test and creates a sword of energy that emerges from its horn and attacks the stone. Right before the sword can make contact, Keldeo loses its focus, and the sword disappears. Terrakion and Virizion laugh at the embarrassed Keldeo, and Terrakion states that Keldeo is very close to mastering the move, and promises to help it finish the final steps. Soon after, Keldeo perfects the move and receives praise from its three mentors. Cobalion wastes no time afterward, immediately having the group set off to find the Shadow Triad, not wanting to remain ignorant of their evil deeds.

The Swords of Justice soon locate the Shadow Triad, watching them battle against Cilan, Cress, and Chili. Keldeo quickly jumps in to help the Striaton Gym Leaders and is given permission by its mentors to battle. Cobalion watches the fight as Keldeo takes control of the battle. After the Colt Pokémon believes it has won the fight, it lets its guard down and the three jump in to protect it. Cobalion praises Keldeo's use of the sword, and informs it that it needs resolution in order to obtain the other sword. The three then quickly overwhelm the Shadow Triad. Having defeated the Shadow Triad, they begin to leave the area. Not wanting such rare Pokémon to escape, the Shadow Triad release their secret weapon, which attacks the Swords of Justice with a powerful beam. Cobalion, along with Terrakion and Virizion, jump in front of the beam to protect Keldeo and are immediately frozen, sending them sinking to the waters below.

Black 2 & White 2 chapter

Two years later, Kelden discovers the three frozen at the Abyssal Ruins. It attempts to free them with Sacred Sword but is unsuccessful. It later returns with its Trainer, who deduces that the Swords of Justice were frozen by an Ice-type Techno Blast and therefore can be freed with a Fire-type Techno Blast. Blake then has his Genesect use the move, despite the fact that the move could cause its drive to discharge. This frees the group and sensing that the drive will discharge Cobalion attacks the drive, releasing it from Genesect and keeping it safe from damage. Cobalion then tells Kelden to stay with Blake and trust in the decision it had made to make him its Trainer.

Personality and characteristics

Cobalion is a strong willed and solemn Pokémon, serving as the leader to the Swords of Justice. It takes its duty as leader seriously, making decision it believes benefits all of the group. Cobalion has a strong relationship with Keldeo, having taught it how to keep a strong heart and to never flinch from an opponent. Cobalion feels hostility and distrust from humans and finds it as no surprise that humans wish to exploit it for its strength. It also sees humans as neither good or evil, just as things that will strike down others with different thoughts. Despite this, it is willing to lend strength to humans who show strong bonds with their Pokemon, even if it is not willing to cooperate with them. Cobalion is a powerful Pokémon, being sought out by many for its strength and making Black afraid to move from its presence alone.
