Reshiram is a bipedal white Pokémon with draconic, avian, and mammalian characteristics. A long, wispy mane flows from the top half of the nose and outwards from the head. The top of this mane has two protrusions that resemble ears. Reshiram’s face includes spiky features and a short, pointed protrusion below the chin. It has blue irises and black pupils in its eyes. When its mouth is open, there are two sets of sharp teeth visible, one in the upper jaw and one in the lower.

Reshiram’s neck is long and thin, with a fluffy, collar-like protrusion protruding from two gray, glass-like neckbands. Its limbs begin slim and arm-like, but soon spread out into a more wing-like look, with four claws on the front edge that resemble hands. Plates on the rear of Reshiram’s “hands” are the same color as its neck rings. Reshiram’s chest bears a feathery or hairy characteristic, with the lowest section projecting outwards to form a point. Long feathery protrusions protrude from its thighs. Large gray claws, three in front and one in behind, like high heels, protrude from its feet. Reshiram’s tail is a tangle of plumes and ribbon-like extensions wrapped by two enormous bands like the ones around its neck. When its emotions rise, it enters Overdrive mode, and its tail glows brightly.

When flying at high speeds, Reshiram possesses a jet engine-like tail that it utilizes to accelerate itself. It can shoot flames from its tail into the air, incinerating anything ob its path. Reshiram can move the world’s atmosphere and change the weather by flaring its tail. This tail generator is also triggered when impacted by Fusion Bolt or Bolt Strike, which in turn powers up Reshiram’s characteristic techniques, Fusion Flare or Blue Flare. Reshiram sided with the elder brother who sought the truth in Unova folklore. As a consequence, it has a strong belief in truth. According to one legend, Reshiram burns down kingdoms of people who disregard the truth because they are overwhelmed by greed.

Reshiram is the only Pokémon known to be able to learn the move Blue Flare through leveling up.

The only known Pokémon that can learn the move Fusion Flare via leveling up are Reshiram and White Kyurem.
