Zekrom (ゼクロム) is the 150th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Dragon/Electric type, and is known as the Deep Black Pokémon.

Zekrom uses the Teravolt Ability. Teravolt is just like the Ability Mold Breaker, only with a fancier name. Teravolt cancels out effects of any ability that would stop or limit the effects and moves itselves used by the Pokémon with this Ability.

Zekrom doesn't evolve and doesn't have a pre-evolved form.

Zekrom is in the Undiscovered Egg Group; like most Legendary Pokémon Zekrom cannot breed. It takes Zekrom 1,250,000 Experience Points for it to reach Level 100.

The item, a stone, activates a portal in Wish Park's Throne Room. To befriend Zekrom you'll have to face it in battle.
