History

Black & White chapter

As the Light Stone
Reshiram and Black

Prior to the start of the Black & White chapter, Reshiram was part of a single powerful Dragon Pokémon used by twin heroes who created the Unova region. The two brothers argued over how to rule the Unova region. The elder brother pursued the truth while the younger brother pursued ideals. Unable to choose a side, the Dragon Pokémon split into two beings: Reshiram, who sided with the elder brother, and Zekrom, who sided with the younger. Sometime after the two brothers battled, Reshiram and Zekrom transformed into the Light and Dark Stones, respectively.

In the present day, both stones were found at the Desert Resort by Clay and his mining crew. Feeling a strange surge of power every time he touched the stones, Clay became concerned and asked Lenora to study them. The Light and Dark Stones were taken to Nacrene Museum to be studied, but only the Dark Stone's discovery was made public knowledge. Lenora later discovered the both stones were actually the Legendary Pokémon Reshiram and Zekrom. As Lenora studied the stones, Team Plasma spied on her with the intent on stealing the stones.

In The Battle Within, the Shadow Triad launched the operation to retrieve the Dark Stone. The Unova Gym Leaders each fought against the Shadow Triad to protect the Dark Stone. Eventually, the Gym Leaders won, but were defeated when the Shadow Triad revealed their trump card, the Forces of Nature. Though the Gym Leaders were defeated and captured, the Shadow Triad were unable to break into the basement where the Dark Stone was kept. By disguising himself as Brycen, a Team Plasma Grunt tricked Black into leading him into the basement, allowing Ghetsis to take the Dark Stone and knock Black unconscious. After Ghetsis had left, the real Brycen entered the basement and found the unconscious Black. He opened the lock to the Light Stone, which rolled towards Black, choosing him to be the next Hero of Truth. Brycen then decided to take Black and train him so that he may be able to wield Reshiram's power against Team Plasma.

In Will the Truth Come Out?, Black stumbles across a battle between N and Alder. When he notices that N managed to get Zekrom to join him, the Light Stone glows brightly and Reshiram briefly emerges from it before retreating back inside.

In True Friends, Black, enraged that Team Plasma managed to manipulate his friend Cheren, angrily demands Team Plasma to reveal themselves. This causes Reshiram to fully emerge from the Light Stone. After Team Plasma surrounds the Pokémon League with N's Castle, Reshiram senses Zekrom's presence and goes off to fight its counterpart alone. After catching up with it, Black rides on Reshiram's back as they face off against N and Zekrom in their final battle. Though initially fearful that he may not be able to live up to the previous Hero's legacy, Black musters up the courage to fight alongside Reshiram. Together, Black and Reshiram hit Zekrom with a powerful Fusion Flare, knocking Zekrom and N to the ground.

Zekrom quickly gets back up and flies to N's Castle with Black and Reshiram following after it. Upon arriving, Black is shocked to see a second Zekrom fighting alongside the original one. Though momentarily confused, Black sees through the ruse and has Reshiram attack the real Zekrom, defeating it. The battle left Reshiram exhausted, leaving it unable to help Black in his final battle against Ghetsis.

After N and Zekrom leave, Reshiram lets out a roar as it begins reverting back into the Light Stone. Black realizes that if he and White stand near it, they will be absorbed into the Light Stone as well. Hearing this, Ghetsis uses Colress's Beheeyem to throw Black onto Reshiram before making his escape. Black is unable to escape and is sealed into the Light Stone alongside Reshiram. When White attempts to grab the Light Stone, it flies off to parts unknown.

Black 2 & White 2 chapter

In Flying Ship, N and Zekrom are seen chasing after the Light Stone. The Light Stone eventually lands in the Entralink and is found by White. Zekrom arrives soon after and takes the group towards Kyurem, being drawn in by its call due to the large amount of power the Boundary Pokémon currently has. After reaching Kyurem, N has White take the Light Stone to safety as he fears Kyurem will go after Reshiram if it defeats Zekrom and this would cause the Light Stone to turn back into Reshiram.

Personality and characteristics

Reshiram is a powerful Pokémon, easily competing with other Legendary Pokémon. Black was quickly overwhelmed by Reshiram's power, feeling as though his mind and body were being crushed by its presence. Reshiram has a close relationship with its Trainer, choosing Black as its Hero of Truth. Black was also able to quickly connect his heart to Reshiram during their battle against N and Zekrom.

History

Black & White chapter

As the Dark Stone

Prior to the start of the Black & White chapter, Zekrom was part of a single powerful Dragon Pokémon used by twin heroes who created the Unova region. The two brothers argued over how to rule the Unova region. The younger brother pursued ideals while the elder brother pursued the truth. Unable to choose a side, the Dragon Pokémon split into two beings: Zekrom, who sided with the younger brother, and Reshiram, who sided with the elder. Sometime after the two brothers battled, Zekrom and Reshiram transformed into the Light and Dark Stones, respectively.

In the present day, both stones were found at the Desert Resort by Clay and his mining crew. Feeling a strange surge of power every time he touched the stones, Clay became concerned and asked Lenora to study them. The Dark and Light Stones were taken to Nacrene Museum to be studied, but only the Dark Stone's discovery was made public knowledge. Lenora later discovered the both stones were actually the Legendary Pokémon Reshiram and Zekrom. As Lenora studied the stones, Team Plasma spied on her with the intent on stealing the stones.

In The Battle Within, the Shadow Triad launched the operation to retrieve the Dark Stone. The Unova Gym Leaders each fought against the Shadow Triad to protect the Dark Stone. Eventually, the Gym Leaders won, but were defeated when the Shadow Triad revealed their trump card, the Forces of Nature. Though the Gym Leaders were defeated and captured, the Shadow Triad were unable to break into the basement where the Dark Stone was kept. By disguising himself as Brycen, a Team Plasma Grunt tricked Black into leading him into the basement, allowing Ghetsis to take the Dark Stone and knock Black unconscious. Ghetsis took the stone to Dragonspiral Tower, where he presented it to N, who awakened Zekrom. Though initially wary of N, Zekrom eventually decided to join N's side, choosing him to be the next Hero of Ideals.

In The Lesson Ends Here, N is approached by Alder, who recounts the legend of Unova's founding before challenging N to a battle. When Black arrives to see the battle, he notices that N managed to awaken Zekrom. The Light Stone glows brightly and Reshiram briefly emerges from it before retreating back inside. Though N is not surprised that Black possesses the Light Stone, he questions why Reshiram chose him. After the battle ends and N leaves, he hears Zekrom's voice, revealing that it wishes to fight against Black once he has fully become the Hero of Truth.

In True Friends, Black, enraged that Team Plasma managed to manipulate his friend Cheren, angrily demands Team Plasma to reveal themselves, causing Reshiram to fully emerge from the Light Stone. Team Plasma soon attacks the Pokémon League, surrounding it with N's Castle. With both Dragons fully awakened, N and Black have their final battle in the skies above N's Castle. Though N initially has the advantage in the battle, Black exploits the connection between Zekrom and Reshiram to deal a powerful blow to Zekrom with Fusion Flare, knocking Zekrom and N to the ground. Zekrom quickly gets back up and flies to N's Castle with Black and Reshiram following after it.

Upon arriving, Black is shocked to see a second Zekrom fighting alongside the original one. Though momentarily confused, Black sees through the ruse and has Reshiram attack the real Zekrom, defeating it. The fake Zekrom soon reveals itself to be N's Zorua, who wished to fight alongside N despite being released earlier. N scolds Zorua shortly before the two pass, leaving them unable to witness Black's final battle against Ghetsis. After Ghetsis is defeated, N wakes up. N, having his worldview changed, decides to leave Unova to follow his own path. Leaving Zorua behind, N and Zekrom fly off to parts unknown.

Black 2 & White 2 chapter

In Flying Ship, Zekrom appears with N chasing after the Light Stone. The two soon catch up to it in the Entralink, where the Light Stone was found by White. Zekrom then takes the group towards Kyurem, being drawn in by its call due to the large amount of power the Boundary Pokémon currently has. After reaching Kyurem, Ghetsis comes to battle alongside the Boundary Pokémon against N and Zekrom. The two dragons then attack with Fusion Bolt and Glaciate.

Personality and characteristics

Zekrom is a powerful Pokémon, easily competing with other Legendary Pokémon. Black was quickly overwhelmed by Zekrom's power, feeling as though his mind and body were being crushed by its presence. Zekrom has a close relationship with N, choosing N to be his Hero of Ideals. N was also able to quickly connect with Zekrom because of his ideals.

Zinzolin's Kyurem (Japanese: ヴィオのキュレム Vio's Kyurem) is the third Dragon Pokémon from the original Dragon who is owned by Zinzolin.

History

Prior to the start of the Black & White chapter, Kyurem was part of a single powerful Dragon Pokémon used by twin heroes who created the Unova region. When the Dragon split into Reshiram and Zekrom, a third Dragon created from what remained was born. This Dragon Pokémon, named Kyurem, belonged to neither Truth nor Ideals.

Two years prior to the start of the Black 2 & White 2 chapter, Kyurem sensed the energy from the now awakened Zekrom and, wishing for Absofusion, appeared before Zinzolin at the Giant Chasm. Kyurem was then captured by Zinzolin. Kyurem first appears in PS536, appearing before Zinzolin and Colress in the Cold Storage. Colress is quickly impressed by the Boundary Pokémon and demands that Zinzolin hand Kyurem over to him. Angered by Colress's arrogance, Zinzolin refuses and commands Kyurem to battle the scientist. During their battle, Colress is impressed by Kyurem's power, but constantly mocks Zinzolin's skill as a Trainer. As the battle continues, Colress comes to the conclusion that Zinzolin's ultimate goal is to have Kyurem fuse with Reshiram or Zekrom through Absofusion.

Eventually, Zinzolin is defeated by the might of Thundurus and Landorus and thrown out of the Cold Storage. Shortly after this, Blake arrives in the area after having noticed Kyurem's power over cold causing the Relic Passage to freeze over. Blake tries to arrest the defeated Zinzolin, but Colress takes him away due to needing Zinzolin's knowledge of Kyurem. After the Plasma Frigate is revealed, Colress takes control of Kyurem with the Colress Machine and has it enter a special room on the ship to store energy to freeze Unova.

In Flying Ship, Blake has Kelden destroy the pipes and wires connected to the machine storing Kyurem. Kyurem then surprises the Colt Pokémon and freezes it, having already been released from the machine. Colress then explains that he has already gathered enough energy to freeze all of Unova and has Kyurem freeze Blake and Whitley before throwing them off of the ship. With its rise in power, Kyurem begins calling for Reshiram and Zekrom to take them into its empty shell.

Shortly after, Zekrom appears alongside the N, White, and the Light Stone. Ghetsis goes with Kyurem to battle against N and Zekrom while N sends the Light Stone to safety with White. The two dragons then attack with Glaciate and Fusion Bolt.

Personality and characteristics

Kyurem is a powerful Pokémon, able to keep the Cold Storage at freezing temperatures with just its presence. Kyurem is described by Zinzolin as an empty shell that is not marred by truth and ideals.
