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

Yes, because Black Kyurem sucks and Zekrom doesn't.

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.

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.
Why do I have to move with the crowd of kids that hardly notice I'm around? I work myself to death just to fit in.

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.
