yeah people say because bad typing and weak to stealth rock but add rapid spin support and its really hard to counter specially the mixed sets.

The black kyurem is in the lower tier because of his crappy moveset.

Yes, because Black Kyurem sucks and Zekrom doesn't.
#6PSOLavisPosted 4/29/2013 10:57:29 PM
Kyurem-B is in borderline due to having a weakness to stealth rock the most prevalent entry hazard. Horrible movepool. No natural defense against spikes and toxic spikes. Slow.
#7BountyanPosted 4/29/2013 10:59:10 PM
Yes, because unlike Kyurem-B it has a 130 power STAB move with its immense attack stat and a typing that doesn't suck.

Not unless it goes mixed. It has Fusion Bolt and Ice Beam, but no special Electric-type moves and no physical Ice-type moves that don't suck.

Yeah, but Kyurem-B is a Physical Attacker. BoltBeam doesn't do much unless you focus on the weaker stat. The only Physical Ice attack it gets is Freeze Shock and two-turn attacks are terrible. Granted, base 120 Sp.A. isn't terrible so mixed can still work. But, if you run a mixed Kyurem-B, you have to sacrifice some Speed, which a base 95 can't really afford to do if it's supposed to be a sweeper.
