Can't believe we missed this one! BTW I added the pokedex link in, it's on all the BW movesets now, I find it very useful :)
God! I'm SRing for a shiny one!!!! It's taking forever!!!! Have u guys ever had any good luck with SRing?
sring?whats that?
In this situation, SRing means "Soft Resetting". Where you basically save in front of something and battle it, but then restart the game when it isn't exactly what you want. Some things you may be looking for specifically are shininess, natures, stuff like that.

Black Kyurem @ Choice Band/Lum Berry

Trait:Teravolt
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Naive Nature(+Spd, -SDef)

  • Outrage
  • Ice Beam
  • Stone Edge/Substitute
  • Fusion Bolt

Someone had to post a Black Kyurem Moveset, so I posted mine. I can easily see Black Kyurem being one of the most dangerous Pokemon in the Uber Metagame, and for good reason. The former 2 are STAB. Fusion Bolt is coverage against Kyogre really. Stone Edge is chosen if you decide to run Choice Band, while Substitute is if Lum Berry is decided.

why not freeze shock?
Because it takes two turns... your opponent can predict and send a pokemon to resist your attack...
ohh. i see
you can give it a grip claw if you're betting on your enemy not having any steel types...  8 TURNS OUTRAGE DESTRUCTION ZOMG
Grip claws do nothing to outrage lol

I like this:

Hone Claws: Acc and Attack Raising
Blizzard: Extreme STAB
Focus Blast: Coverage
Outrage/STone Edge: Hone Claws attack boost.

Nature: Mild/Lonely
Item: Life Orb/Leftovers
EVs: 252 Speed, 200 SA, 56 Attack.

Good set. You could go with Dragon Claw if you're going to use Hone Claws anyway. Or maybe Dragon Tail to attack and scare off opponents.
Hone Claws goes a bit to waste if you use Blizzard and Focus Blast
It raises accuracy and has more power for outrage.
why would you put 200 EVs into Sp Atk? i can see doing that for WHITE Kyurem, but Black Kyurem is all Physical Attack, its signature moves are both Physical, and its Physical Stat is just UNHEALTHY GOOD!!!

White Kyurem @ Life Orb / Choice Specs

Trait: Turboblaze

EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Ice Beam
  • Fusion Flare
  • Focus Blast
  • Psychic / Draco Meteor

I don't know if any of you pre-ordered Japanese Black or White 2, but I did :D
482 SAtk is so baws, and each of these moves gets dat powa. I personally prefer White Kyurem over Black, but that is your choice. Kyurem is still sexy.

Oh yeah! I can see White Kyurem going into uber but black might get stuck in OU
Choice specs* do you meen
I doubt it, I think this will may manage to get into ubers thanks to scarf and 180 special atk.
Zekrom has basically been given another 30 atk the number one kyogre counter has been buffed more hell definly be über.
Kyurem gets Earth Power from the move Tutor, so you'll probably want that over Focus Blast. Also, I wouldn't even consider Psychic. A neutral Draco Meteor does more damage. To the Steel/Fightings, Fusion Flare.
170 not 180 Blob :)
Honestly I think Black Kyurem is going to be an awesome Uber in the metagame. x] I think they're both equals in the Uber tier.

Kyurem White
Kyurem-W @ Life Orb

EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe

Timid nature

  • Dragon Pulse/Draco Meteor
  • Fusion Flare
  • Ice Beam/Blizzard
  • Roost

Both Dragon Pulse and Draco Meteor are STAB, it depends on if you want consistent damage or kind of hit and run.
Fusion Flare is good at getting Steel types out of the way, like Ferrothorn and Forretress. No need for HP Fire anymore.
Ice Beam is nice STAB, and gets some extra coverage. Blizzard is cool and all if you run Uber Hail.
Roost is excellent healing and an interesting option, Roost shrugs off Life Orb recoil and attacks.
Rapid spin support is also recommended.

You posted 8 minutes ago & you already have 2 up-votes. Baws
Indeed, upvotes where there almost immediately.
Question. If you use White Kyurem with max Hp and you use Roost, wouldn't it be way more hard to K.O White? I don't know, it just makes sense to me. cx
Not way harder, but Roost is mostly for healing damage from life orb and potential attacks.
I see, great moveset though. =]
Thanks
How the heck does this guy learn roost?!

Trick Room Sweeper

Kyurem-B @ Life Orb

Trait: Teravolt
EVs: 44 HP / 252 Atk / 212 SAtk
Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
- Outrage
- Earth Power
- Fusion Bolt
- Ice Beam

0 IVs in Speed. With this Kyurem-B makes an effective Trick Room sweeper. A problem with it has always been its Speed stat. So this seeks to fix that. While this does allow Steel types such as Scizor and Ferrothorn to outspeed it, as well as Conkeldurr, these are Pokemon that would have already been able to counter Kyurem. So it doesn't matter. Outrage is STAB that 2HKOs almost everything in the game, only a few of the bulkiest Steel types (Skarmory) can avoid the guarenteed 2HKO (there is a chance to get the 2HKO though.) Earth Power is there to hit Bronzong, Jirachi, and Heatran, 2HKOing them (fully Special Defensive Heatran has a chance to get OHKOd with Rocks up, add Spikes to the mix to guarentee the OHKO.) Fusion Bolt hits your bulky Water types, and Skarmory. Ice Beam is there for Gliscor and Landorus-T.

Kyurem-B @ Leftovers

Since Kyurem-B is OU now because of a horrible movepool, it can be OP.


Black Kyurem @ Life orb
enter image description here

Ability:Teravolt
Nature:Jolly
EV Spread: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Moves:

  • Roost
  • Outrage
  • Dragon tail
  • Fusion Bolt

I put fusion bolt there for coverage since it doesn`t get STAB and Dragon tail for force switching after Spikes or Stealth Rock has been put up.

lol it wouldn't be OU if it was "OP".
It is mainly OU for the same reason Kyurem is BL. It has a horrid movepool as you mentioned but it also has a horrible typing for a Pokemon of these stats. Its Ice typing makes it vulnerable to Stealth Rocks which is almost always in play. This limits the amount of times it is able to switch in. Secondly its Dragon type can be easy to wall with 90% of all Ou teams either carrying a Heatran or Ferrothorn and its only decent Ice stab is Ice Beam which isn't bad coming off 120 or so Base special atk but it isn't great without investment.

Decent set btw though Roost may be needed with SR, LO and the damage you take from waiting to Dragon Tail. Roost can be used as the opponent is scared and is switching to a steel type. Alternativley you could swap Dragon Tail

Pretty simple special set:

EVs: 252 SpAtk, 252 Speed, 4 Def

Ice Beam or Blizzard
Psychic
Focus Blast (covers most of remaining weaknesses i.e. Steel types)
Endeavor

Alternatively, Shadow Ball would give 100% coverage at super-effective or normal effectiveness.

U guys are forgetting one thing, kyurem is the only pokemon that can learn glaciate, and it is a wonderful move, instead of blizzard or ice beam use glaciate.
Glaciate isn't good at all
You  are right Oreon. That speed drop is the only good thing. I do not know why people think these kind of moves [they are the signiature move or the only move that no other poke can learn] are good because half the time they suck.

Kyurem-B @ Power Herb
Teravolt

This set is simple. PH is for Freeze Shock which will do massive damage with STAB. Draco Meteor comes afer Feeze Shock. Fusion Bolt for coverage. Outrage for Physical STAB.

My Black Kyurem knows these moves.
Role: Physical Sweeper
Nature: Jolly
EV's: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Held Item: Leftovers

Outrage - STAB, good power, high accuracy
Dragon Claw - STAB, good move, good PP
Freeze Shock - Great power, STAB
Fusion Bolt - High Power and accuracy

I used this moveset to battle a White Kyurem, but it can be used for other battles too.
