Black Kyurem because Zekrom is superior in my eyes.

Based solely on the fact that electric type moves are not very effective I'm going to have to go with white Kyurem. But other than that one move the two are almost completely evenly balanced.

White Kyurem has base Special attack of 170 and Black Kyurem's attack is 170. They're Attack and Special Attack are switched as well as their defence and Special Defence.

Also! White Kyurem would obviously be used for Special Attacks am I correct? And oppositely for Black. If we were to pit them in battle to determine a victor I think White Kyurem would have an advantage to throw a STAB Draco Meteor over, where I would be inclined to put Outrage on Black. A pathetic 20 base damage extra may add up in this battle of the ages. Then again an even more pathetic 10 base accuracy less may destroy any chance of landing it.

Even still Draco Meteor does come with 90 accuracy.

Ultimately how they were raised is the real deciding factor. Which has 252 Speed EV's and 31 IV's? Both? Well then who was lucky enough to get the first strike?

Would've been better if there was a poll up, but oh well.

Anyway, I like White Kyurem better because I prefer Reshiram over Zekrom. Black Kyurem has physical move pool problems, however.

I'm not very convinced if I like any of the two but since I prefer Reshiram to Zekrom and, aesthetically speaking, I would pick White Kyurem. Doesn't it look majestic? It seems like that to me.

White Kyurem.
Special Attack is more important for me and I like Reshiram more.

White Kyurem, since it has a better movepool for its dominant attack stat.

Why did you include a picture of a Digimon in the spoiler?

Oh.

Oh yeah.

We're talking about those Pokemon here.


Ahem. Anyway, I'd have to disagree with White Kyurem looking majestic. It just looks like a cyborg to me. Now Reshiram, I guess you could say that that one looks majestic, but if you want a really majestic legendary Pokemon, try Ho-Oh or Lugia.



On the subject of the two newest Digimon, I'd have to say that Black Kyurem is better, mainly because I like it's stat distribution better. Otherwise, both look like mechanical, cold, lifeless robots. It's like comparing the old and new Star Wars movies. The old movies had a certain charm and life to them, and the new movies suffer from mechanical, cold, and lifeless characters projected onto mechanical, cold, and lifeless CGI backgrounds.

White Kyurem to sweep the floor with Draco Meteor! Special Attack stat is more useful in my opinion, but I like both of the designs equally.

I love white Kyurem, just because it looks so awesome and it's typing is really cool too. I feel as the design is slightly better than the black one

So now I see why I love White Kyurem... becuase I loved new SW more than the old ones.

I haven't used either of them, but based on looks and the fact that I love Reshiram I would have to say I prefer White Kyurem.

I hate it's chin and color. White Kyruem just stands out to me because it's stats and how it looks. If I got Black 2 I would only get Black Kyruem because of it's poor stats. IMO, I know my avatar is hypocritical, but I want to stand out to users that like BK.

-shrug- I just like White Kyruem better, I don't think Zekrom's colors on Black Kyruem appeal to me. I like it a LITTLE bit.

I agree. I am excited too, even though I sound cranky.

Lies. Reshiram's design is superior.

And

http://www.google.com/search?um=1&hl...uaq-QEDtgcaGM:

are the two most over-rated Pokemon I've seen, and I believe people giggled at reshiram's fur immaturely and that's why they like Zekrom.. Now the reason Black Kyruem is over-rated is because it is a combination of the two most loved Pokemon.. Zekrom -located on top- and Kyruem. Now, what game freak did was combined Reshiram and Zekrom both with Kyruem, thus making Black/White Kyruem a fan-fest. But it seems Zekrom still has a fan upper-hand when it comes to Black Kyruem.

What are you're opinions? What do you think about this prediction? I await your responses below.

It sounds like you just have a large dislike of Zekrom for some reason and really prefer Reshiram, I don't agree with this much

I always figured Reshiram was more popular than Zekrom. Like, in every pole or search on the subject people always liked Resh more, either because of design or Special Attack. Which I don't mind because, even though I prefer Zekrom, Reshiram is still badass. And Kyurem was downplayed in either Serebii or Smogon, saying it was a lackluster battler. So I've never known Kyurem to be liked that much.

I don't think the two are overrated really, they're the newest legendaries and in 6th gen (if there IS a 6th gen) people will move on. At least that's my opinion lol
