@HollandM: Haha nice point, that was clever.

@DragoBoy: I have a question-How did you get that Mew? The only thing I can think of is using an AR. Just curious.

Lets get this straight:
Reshiram and Zekrom = Yin and Yang
Reshiram = Yang, Zekrom =Yin
Yin = Bad, Yang= Good
Reshiram = Yang = Good, Zekrom = Yin = Bad
Good always triumphs against the Bad, so in ur face Zekrom!! :lol:

Wikipedia wrote:
Yin yang are complementary opposites that interact within a greater whole, as part of a dynamic system. Everything has both yin and yang aspects, but either of these aspects may manifest more strongly in particular objects, and may ebb or flow over time. The concept of yin and yang is often symbolized by various forms of the Taijitu symbol, for which it is probably best known in western cultures.

There is a perception (especially in the West) that yin and yang correspond to evil and good. However, Taoist philosophy generally discounts good/bad distinctions and other dichotomous moral judgments, in preference to the idea of balance. Confucianism (most notably the philosophy of Dong Zhongshu, c. the 2nd century BCE) did attach a moral dimension to the idea of yin and yang, but the modern sense of the term largely stems from Buddhist adaptations of Taoist philosophy.

So, according to the original use of the terms of Yin and Yang, neither Reshiram or Zekrom (concept-wise) are better than the other. However, since the concept of Yin and Yang has mostly been attributed to the two Legendaries by fans/players (I think; correct me if I'm wrong), there are still many arguments as to why one is better than the other.

Personally, I've always liked Zekrom better. The typing is interesting, and so is the design. At first, I didn't really like Reshiram; but after seeing the cutscenes in BW, I think I've come around a little bit. But still, Zekrom is my favorite of the two (stats don't play a role in my decision, for the record).

I got it from a wi-fi event for HG/SS and traded it over.

@Rex09: Haha. You pwned him. No offense HollandM. :)

@DragoBoy: Oh, cool! I didnt know there was ever a Wi-Fi event for Mew. Eh, that shows how observant I am. So now im gonna guess that since it's in your party that it's Lv. 55+?

@Porygon 3: Note to self: I really enjoy doing this @*insert name here* thing. :D

Well mean I have White, so I always have to be somewhat devoted to Zekrom :)

I must say i do prefer Zekrom over Reshiram but that's not the reason why I got White. I got white so I could get a Trapinch in White Forest, yay!

I wonder why everyone is posting that they like one more than the other because of the color. What if Reshiram was the black one and Zekrom the white? Would that matter to people?

Well I mean there are definately people that like one over the other because of stats or type. But If the colors were switched than the people who liked them because of the color might have to change they're favorite. :)

I think Reshiram looks cooler, but Zekrom sweeps anything in battle. Mine knows Fusion Bolt, Crunch, Draco Meteor, and Thunder, is level 86, and is unstoppable!!!!

Haha, well at least you train your Zekrom. The highest mine ever got was Lv. 59.

They're both awesome stats wise, but in terms of looks, I favor Reshiram. It's beautiful, and I am a huge sucker for Fire and Dragon types (especially now when combined). Zekrom, while certainly badass and menacing, doesn't inspire the same feelings in me.

Well they both are pretty great stat-wise, but it's just because they're legendaries. And I agree with you that Reshiram looks cool, but I like the menacing Dragon/Electric Type :D

I personally like Zekrom better, mostly because of the design. Reshiram is too white and fluffy (and ugly) to be a good mascot. Fire is also one of my least favorite types, and even though I don't particularly favor Electric types, I'd pick it over Fire any day. Oh, and epic pic Edoc'sil! :mrgreen:

I'm actually kind of fond of Electric types. That's a reason I prefer Zekrom.

When I made this topic, I made it Reshiram or Zekrom because they were the cover Pokemon. Also, because they were counterparts, like Latios and Latias, Dialga and Palkia, etc.

OK let me just say that Reshiram has higher special attack so it wins!

Zekrom has higher Attack. There's really no more powerful one based on fact, since they both have 680 base.

That's not true because Dragon Pulse is more powerful then Dragon Claw and so is Draco Meteor. Thus, for these two reasons, Reshiram is the winner.
