PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So I beat the Pokemon league and everything and caught Reshiram (Pokemon White 2), but then N told me that Kyurem is back at the Giant Chasm and catchable. But I used my Master Ball to catch Reshiram! Is there any tips or easier ways to catch Kyurem without scourging/trading/hoping for another Master Ball? Thanks!

The easiest way to get another master ball is by having ground and dark types to beat Colress on the plasma "Tri-carrier"

Stock up on Pokeballs

Make sure you have plenty of Pokeballs, because you probably wont be able to catch Kyurem first try. Use Ultra Balls, as they have the highest catch rate. Timer balls are also very useful, if the battle has lasted a lot of turns. Try also using Dusk Balls if its night, or in a cave, Heavy balls if the Pokemon is heavy, etc.

Status Conditions

Inflicting status conditions is extremely useful when catching legendaries, as this ups the catch rate. I would suggest to put the Pokemon to Sleep or Paralyze it, as with Poison or Burn it may faint after a while. Also, Paralyzed Pokemon cant naturally cure themselves, whereas Sleeping Pokemon can wake up.


Save before Kyurem! :P That way you can go back if you run out of Pokeballs.

False Swipe

False Swipe is an incredibly useful move, especially when catching legendaries. Get its HP to red, the use False Swipe.

Potions/ Revives

Make sure you have plenty of Potions or Revives. If Kyurem ends up being too strong for your team (which I doubt), you will have to go back to the Pokemon Centre if you black out.

That's all I can think of... Good luck catching Kyurem ! :D

How did you get the black and white Kyurem on screen and how did you get the normal Kyurem to move?
If you go on the Sprite page of Pokemon DB, you can search up Kyurem Sprites and it should come up with animated and non-animated sprites. Then press on the sprite you want for a few seconds, and select "Copy URL". Then, when you're typing your answer, you should see a picture frame as one of the options. Paste the URL, and the image should appear on your answer :D

Use status condition inducing moves before throwing all of your Poke Balls at Kyurem. I think putting it to sleep works the best. Use moves like Hypnosis. An Ultra Ball will give you the highest chance of capture.

Hope I helped!
