I noticed Kyurem has pretty decent stats, such as its impressive 130 attack and sp. Attack. It also has a respectable hp stat and not bad defenses. What prevents it from being used more in competitive battles?

Oh, wait. This was already asked...

>Defensively, Ice typing is a severe liability, leaving Kyurem extremely vulnerable to entry hazards and common attacks. This cannot be stressed enough: Kyurem hates entry hazards of all kinds, which makes Rapid Spin support almost compulsory.

To be fair... Regular Kyurem isn't higher tiered simply because it not that useful in most cases, and is generally weak to most Entry Hazards. However, Black & White Kyurem ARE higher Tiered. White Kyurem is in the Ubers Tier and Black Kyurem is in the OU Tier.
