Reshiram (レシラム) is 149th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Dragon/Fire type, and is known as the Vast White Pokémon.

Reshiram uses the Turboblaze Ability. Turboblaze is just like the Ability Mold Breaker, only difference between them is their name. Turboblaze cancels out effects of any ability that would stop or limit the effects and moves itselves used by the Pokémon with this Ability.

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

Game Information

Original Games

Reshiram is exclusive to Pokémon Black, being essential to catch to continue with the story-line. It can be captured within N's Castle in Pokémon Black. N also has one in Pokémon White, but is unable to be caught. In White 2 Reshiram can be obtained at Dragonspiral Tower.

In Black 2 and White 2, a Reshiram can be merged with a Kyurem to become White Kyurem by using the DNA Link Pin

Spin-off Games

Reshiram appears at Wish Park in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond after obtaining 20 White Feathers, then bringing them to the Arcane Area, the location of Reshiram's Shrine. The portal that opens up leads to Wish Park, where Reshiram will issue a challenge to battle you. Befriending Reshiram requires facing it in battle.

Reshiram is only available as the result of a Wi-Fi Event in Pokémon Conquest.

Trading Card Game

Four Reshiram Cards are listed in the Black/White Promo set, one of which is a Reshiram EX Card. Reshiram is listed as a Rare Card in the Black&White (2) and Next Destinies set. Two additional Reshiram Cards are listed in the Next Destinies set, both are Ultra Rare EX Cards.

Anime/Manga Information


Reshiram has yet to appear within the Anime as of writing.

Reshiram's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Reshiram currently sits in the Uber tier of competitive battling. Reshiram is unforunately not a great Pokémon in the Uber tier, being easy to wear down due to its vulnerability to all three forms of hazards, lack of easily spammable attacks which is not desirous of a wallbreaker, and susceptibility to some of the tier's biggest threats, such as Primal Kyogre and Arceus. If one chooses to use Reshiram, its best set is a Roost set with 3 attacks and a Life Orb which can take do some damage with its strong Draco Meteor and Blue Flare attacks while being able to potentially surprise Ho-oh with Stone Edge. Other than that, Reshiram lacks defensive utility and sufficient enough speed to be a legitimate force in the Uber tier.
