Reshiram, the mascot from Pokémon Black, has joined the ranks of legendaries in Pokémon Go.
You should have a good understanding of the Vast White Pokémon’s weaknesses and counters if you want to add it to your Pokédex.
Like the previous Legendary Pokémon, Reshiram will be available in Five-Star Raids, so if you want to add it to your Pokédex, you’ll need a team of fellow trainers. However, thanks to Remote Raiding, you can now join raid battles from the comfort of your home.

Everything we know about Reshiram
Reshiram is a legendary Pokémon from the fifth generation and first debuted in Pokémon Black and White.
Along with Zekrom and Kyurem, Reshiram is a member of the Tao trio, which refers to the three legendary dragons that make their home in the Unova region.
The other members of the Tao tri are Zekrom and Kyurem.
As the trio’s name suggests, these three Pokémon are heavily inspired by Taoism’s concept of yin and yang. Reshiram is the representation of yang in this trio, which is why it is white and has fire as one of its types. Both characteristics are two of the main characteristics of yang.
This connection to yin and yang deepens when you explore the Pokémon mythology surrounding Reshiram.
Originally, Reshiram and Zekrom were a full dragon-type Pokémon, which was partnered with two brothers. However, the conflicting ideals of these brothers led to this dragon Pokémon splitting into Reshiram and Zekrom, with the natures and appearances of these new Pokémon contrasting with each other.
