Outside, smell the fresh… um, misty air, then descend the stairs ahead. At the bottom is a maze of trees, tall grass and one-way ledges. Super. Your aim is to travel clock-wise around this forest, while edging your way towards the centre. Oh–and grab any items along the way!
The Pokemon here are quite high Level, so don’t be careless and don’t expect Repels to always work. There are some nice ‘mons too that you can catch and add to your Pokedex or battle party. Also, they’re great training fodder and you’ll want to train for the challenges ahead…
As you progress, you will need to hop over the ledges, making it tough to backtrack. The first time you do this is around halfway along the west side of the forest. Then again near the north side.
At this point you should see a tall flight of stairs, blocked by trees. Don’t worry about it for now, as you can’t reach it yet. Look where you’re going and continue traveling clockwise towards the forest’s centre.
Halfway along the south side, watch out for the ledge going left near the bottom– don’t jump over it unless you want to return to the entrance. Instead head north, through the trees. Then hop north over the small ledge, then quickly turn right and head south.
As you approach the small pond, you will hear a Pokemon cry and the entire forest will sudden become enveloped by a thick blanket of snow. Whoa…
Now you can walk anywhere in the forest, but you won’t be able to grab any items due to the snow. Don’t fret yourself for now and head for the north-east corner, where you saw the tall flight of stairs. Go up ’em and into the cave ahead.
Inside, run north and before long you’ll be face to face with the powerful monstrosity that caused that instant snowstorm–Unova’s third and final Legendary Dragon Pokemon: Kyurem .
Legendary Pokemon: Kyurem
Kyurem is a monster at Level 75 and a tough cookie to catch. But if you managed to snag Zekrom/Reshiram, you should be well equipped to catch this beastie.
Try to Paralyse or Sleep Kyurem to stop it from attacking your Pokemon as often, while simultaneously upping your catch rate. Then knock its HP down with weak moves, before finishing off with False Swipe if possible. Finally throw your Ultra Balls, Dusk Balls or other potent Poke Balls.
Since Kyurem hits pretty hard with Dragon- and Ice-type moves, a Steel Pokemon would be great to field, reducing Kyurem’s damage output. Endeavor can throw a spanner in the works, as it will cut your Pokemon’s HP to equal Kyurem’s–disastrous if you’ve whittled Kyurem down to low HP.
A Ghost Pokemon won’t be affected by Endeavor, but they’ll need to be sturdy to survive Kyurem’s other attacks. Luckily Kyurem’s attacks aren’t massively damaging like the previous dragon you encoutered.
Having caught Kyurem, congratulations! Sadly, this legendary is a bit gimped compared to others, with average stats and a poor type combination (Ice always sucks).
However, thanks to the magic of guide revisions, we can tell you Kyurem’s worth keeping because it gets a massive boost in Black 2/White 2, in the form of two powerful forms: Black Kyurem and White Kyurem. How exciting!
