Everything we know about Zekrom

Originally, the Einall region was created by two princes who shared a dragon-type Pokémon. For some time, these brothers worked together to shape the country before their different ideals led them to separate. And so one Pokémon became two.

The older brother, who was seeking the truth, teamed up with Reshiram, while Zekrom stayed with the younger brother, who put his ideals above everything else.


Despite these contradictions, the dragons were just as strong and in the end the two brothers learned to put their differences aside and decided that there was no real side to their argument here.

Their sons have reunited again and the battle of the two Pokémon has brought Einall to the brink of ruin.

Besides Reshiram and Kyurem, Zekrom is a member of the Tao trio. This trio is inspired by the concept of yin and yang and the zekrom represents yin.
