There are several Legendary Pokémon that you can use in Pokémon Go. You will mainly use them if you want to participate in the Master League, one of the largest and most competitive PvP Battle League battles in the game. Kyurem is a solid choice for your team if you can catch it. In this guide, we will see if Kyurem is good and how to best use it in Pokémon Go.
Kyurem is a Dragon and Ice-type Legendary Pokémon. It is weak against Dragon, Fairy, Fighting, Rock, and Steel-type moves, but is resistant to Electric, Grass, and Water-type attacks. A big drawback of Kyurem is the low stamina it has and the almost double number of weaknesses.
However, it makes up for it with its overall power. Kyurem has a maximum CP of 3.575, an attack of 206, a defense of 146, and a stamina of 205. Although it has a lot of health, it lacks a solid defense to withstand a large amount of attacks.
Ideally you will want to use Kyurem as your main Pokémon. The health it has allows it to withstand a good amount of attacks, but not forever, which means it will rely on using at least one shield and will trade with your Switch Pokémon. Alternatively, you could use it as a Closer and as a final Pokémon, but there are better Pokémon that can fill that role.
Kyurem is effective due to the amount of shield pressure she can apply using her fast-moving dragon breath and charged moves, blizzard, and dragon claw. While blizzard costs a huge amount of energy to use, the dragon's claw only requires 35, meaning Kyurem uses the attack quite often.
Overall, Kyurem is a solid pick, capable of taking out Mewtwo, Kyogre, Garchomp, and Zekrom, but will be beaten by Dialga, Gyarados, Dragonite, and Groudon. We recommend Kyurem, but we recommend that you make sure you have multiple defensive Pokémon on your list to protect it from damage.
