So why is Black Kyurem allowed in OU?

Because he can only learn a total of two and a half moves. :/

It's due to Kyu-B having the combination of being an Ice-type, having 95 base spd, and possessing a shallow physical movepool. .

Too many key weaknesses, including Stealth Rock and two of the most common priority moves in the game? Check.

Low speed that makes the aforementioned weaknesses even more of an issue? Check.

Main offensive stat ruined by lack of decent physical STAB on one type and lack of coverage for the other STAB? Check.

This is why. In fact, chances are he'll join regular Kyurem in BL soon...

Because their ONLY Physical (which is what their stats favor) Ice-type STAB move is Freeze Shock. NOBODY uses SolarBeam outside of sun teams, and there's no way to speed up Freeze Shock consistently.

And it's OU because it sucks but enough people use it for it to be OU, Base Kyurem is BL and all B-Kyurem is is a buffed Kyurem that does nothing to solve the original flaw of Kyurem's which was that its movepool was utter crap on the physical side. White Kyurem actually has move variety to make it broken, B-Kyurem though is a joke that either has to stall or gets revenge killed on any other set with ease.

Good one. A pokemon with Sp Attack that matches Arceus's and far superior Attack than Arceus in BL.

Thank you I needed a good laugh.

Because every Black Kyurem user goes pure Physical when he is designed to go mixed.

Then again, why can't he learn earthquake dammit. Much better than earth power.

Both of Azelf's attacking stats are higher than Arceus. It's in UU.

-Poor Physical Movepool. Only additions were Freeze Shock and Fusion Bolt.
-Competitively, has poor Speed.
-Weak to Stealth Rocks.
-Weak to common threats. (Sizcor, Garchomp, Terrakion, Keldeo...need I continue?)

I love K-B (Has the best damn Shiny form IMO), but Trollfreak really gave it the short end of the stick when it and K-W came into existence.
