Kyurem B Vs. Kyurem W in Metagame?

0 votes

Which is better in the Metagame and why? The only difference is that Kuyrem B learns Freeze Shock and Fusion Bolt and it is a physical attacker, and Kyurem W learns Freeze Burn and Fusion Flare and it is a special attacker. What is the big differenc that makes one better than the other? Is it that Kyurem W learns Fusion flare which has better coverage than Kyurem B? I wonder this because Kyurem W is in Ubers while Kyurem B is in OU.

They are Physical and Special attackers respectively
What does that have to do with it??
Well, you can't really compare them, because Kyurem-W is better as a Special attacker, but Kyurem-B is better as a Physical attacker..
Do you which one is better in Ubers?

Kyurem-W is better. Reason?
It can abuse its huge 170 SAtk with STAB: Draco Meteor, Dragon Pulse, and Ice Beam. Kyurem-B has det sexy Outrage, which can rip through walls, but it is forced to go mixed due to it not having a reliable Physical Ice STAB.

Kyurem-W's combination of Dragon Pulse / Draco Meteor and Fusion Flare hit unresisted throughout the tier, due to Turboblaze.

Kyurem-W is overall better because it is an uber and Kyurem-B is OU.
The reason why is because Kyurem-W has a much better special movepool than Kyurem-B's shallow physical movepool. Kyurem-W also has a reliable stab- ice type move in either ice beam or blizzard in hail. The best Kyurem-B has is the unreliable freeze shock or ice beam which it must use its weaker sp atk to use. Also for Kyurem-W, fire and dragon offers amazing coverage including heatran because of turboblaze.
However Kyurem-B does have its perks. It can take on chansey/blissey and many bulky water types. It also can take other special walls. But overall Kyurem-W is better in my opinion.
