    Default Kyurem in the Third Version

    Black: It generates a powerful, freezing energy inside itself, but its body became frozen when the energy leaked out.
    White: It can produce ultracold air. Its body is frozen.

    Self explanatory - a thread dedicated to the most obvious contender for mascot of the third game in the Unova series, the gelid terror that fell from the heavens... the Boundary Pokemon, Kyurem.

    Now, it is customary for the mascot of each 'third' game to have an even more prominent role in the game's story than that of the other two who came before. Pikachu's role in Yellow version is a good example, as is the hunt for Suicune and your encounters with Eusine in Pokemon Crystal. In Emerald, Rayquaza is summoned in a nice little cut scene after a trip to the Sky Pillar to quell the seismic rage of Groudon and Kyogre, and in Platinum, Giratina rips a hole between its dimension and the 'real world', sending the player into the Distortion World for a final confrontation with that sad autistic guy who can't seem to understand why everyone's smiling all the time.

    So what about Kyurem? What role will it play? We talk often of Pokemon Grey, and rightly so; any other name for the third game would seem misplaced. Grey is a blend of black and white, and seems to suggest a kind of balance. But with Kyurem, and Ice type, it may instead refer to absence - the absence of energy, for example, in contrast to Reshiram and Zekrom's fire and electric types, respectively. This is also suggested by Kyurem's role as the representation of the Taoist concept of 'wuji', which is an absence of yin and yang.

    But this post is getting a tad long-winded. We will discuss this further in the thread. I know this information is available in many places around the web - I'm just assembling it here to encourage conversation.

    Let's do this.

    About the name of the third game, I always thought "Chrome" would be a neat name for it. Grey/Gray, to me, sounds kind of boring and little too predictable when you think off the names for the others. Again, that's just me.

    Maybe N would take control of both Reshiram and Zekrom and you'd have to stop him with Kyurem. I guess you could say ideas and truth have no boundaries except when facing Kyurem.

    we've heard several times that zekrom and reshiram used to be only one pokemon, right? well, maybe Kyurem is sort of like a shedinja: when this original pokemon split, it left behind Kyurem as a forgotten shell?

    that would kind of explain its relation to the other two.

    Kyurem is the Boundary pokemon. What exactly might that mean?
    URPG PM me for a battle: please!

    You know, I've always imagined the "Original" dragon as being far too powerful for a regular Pokemon, kinda like the Crimson Dragon in Yugioh for anybody that knows about that. Too powerful for regular gameplay, mostly just a plot object, ya know? So, I don't think Kyurem will be able to become its super powerful original form in Gray.

    But, I do have an idea. You know how Kyurem has those Ice moves that he can't learn in B/W? One representing Reshiram & Zekrom. Well, I figure that he will have 2 forms. One will know the Fire move & one knowing the Electric one. Now, I believe that one form could be a combination of Kyurem & Reshiram, and the other could be Kyurem & Zekrom. When he changes forms, he will learn the repective signature move, and lose it if he changes back to normal form. Imo this is somewhat supported by the names of Resh & Zek's signature moves because they have Fusion in them.

    I think that would be pretty awesome, myself. Opinions?
