The Mythology behind the Black & White dragons?

I have figured out that Zekrom and Reshiram are based off the Yin-Yang symbol but what does it represent? And Kyurem must have a significance in the Legend as well right?

Kyurem, on the other hand, is an analogy to wuji—a separate concept of Taoism—under the assumption that the absence of the warmth Reshiram and Zekrom generate (and thus their conceptual yin and yang) equals the infinite absence wuji implies. Wuji is also said to be represented by an empty circle; Kyurem's species name is the Boundary Pokémon.

So, I think what it reads is that the absence of Reshiram and Zekrom's warmth means Kyurem, as wuji, is absent as well. Reshiram and Zekrom have seperated (they are absent) meaning Kyurem is also absent. (I'm sorry, I'm not very good at this. xD) To sum it up, Kyurem represents wuji.

Hope I helped. :)

Well the yin-yang symbol represents the complementary interaction of two entities, which together form a greater, stronger influence, whether it be in idea or nature. As for Kyurem, it is wuji, the lack of yin and yang, emptiness, which is why it has a lower stat total in its standard form.

Now on to the in-game legend. At one point, thousands of years ago, Zekrom, Reshiram and Kyurem were a single, highly powerful, dragon guiding the morals of an ancient kingdom. This kingdom entered a civil war following a falling out between the king's sons. The older sought truth, while the younger sought ideals. The dragon was divided by this conflict, to the point that it split in two, Reshiram, who desired truth, and Zekrom, who desired ideals. Kyurem was the leftover remnants. Truth and Ideals are at first glance separate, opposing entities, that in reality must compliment each other in order for one to make logical choices. Kyurem, being the remnants of the original entity, can absorb the former parts of its body (Zekrom and Reshiram) to regain it's former the strength (the very powerful Black Kyurem and White Kyurem). The civil war continued, and both sides were even matches. Eventually Reshiram and Zekrom became so weak from battle that they regressed into their respective stones, and the war ended. Thousands of years past until both of them were reawakened by N and the B/W Player Character, where the two fought, and team plasma was defeated. Two years later, N released his dragon to the B2/W2 player character.

Thanks for reading hope this helps

they were once a single dragon used by 2 twins to create unova region.but then brothers sought for something else truth and ideals.the 2 brothers fought and innresponse the 1 dragon split into 2.then the 2 brothers battled each other endlessly with zekrom and reshiram but since the 2 dragons were evenly matched the batlle never ended and began destroying unova.after both dragons just disappeared.kyurem is suppose to represent wuji. when reshiram and zekrom split into 2 a 3rd dragon was leftover which was kyurem.the pokedex says kyurem is waiting to get a hero to fill its missing body parts with truth and ideals which zekrom and reshiram represent.
