|Number: 599||Type: Steel||Evolves from: None||Evolves into: Klang|
Klink (ギアル Giaru?), known as the Gear Pokémon, is two gears which have come together. Other bodies will not connect with it and become separated. By having its two bodies rotate in a gear formation, it creates the energy it needs to live.
|Number: 600||Type: Steel||Evolves from: Klink||Evolves into: Klinklang|
Klang (ギギアル Gigiaru?), known as the Gear Pokémon, is the evolution of Klink. It is based on gears used in machinery. By changing the direction in which it rotates, it communicates its feelings to others. When angry, it rotates faster. Spinning minigears are rotated at high speed and repeatedly fired away. It is dangerous if the gears don't return.
|Number: 601||Type: Steel||Evolves from: Klang||Evolves into: None|
Klinklang (ギギギアル Gigigiaru?), known as the Gear Pokémon, is the evolution of Klang. It is the final evolution of Klink. Like Klink and Klang, it is based on gears. Its red core functions as an energy tank. It fires charged energy through its spikes into an area. The gear with the red core is rotated at high speed for a rapid energy charge.
|Number: 602||Type: Electric||Evolves from: None||Evolves into: Eelektrik|
Tynamo (シビシラス Shibishirasu?), known as the Electric Eel Pokémon. It is based on young electric eels and lampreys. A single Tynamo's electrical power is tiny, but when a group comes together, that power is "as mighty as thunder". These Pokémon move in schools. They have an electricity-generating organ, so they discharge electricity if in danger. It and its evolved forms have the Levitate ability, which combined with its Electric typing means it has no weaknesses under normal circumstances. It should be noted that, unlike Sableye and Spiritomb, Tynamo and its evolutions have not been effected by the advent of the Fairy Type, so as of Generation VI, they alone have no weaknesses under normal circumstances (Fairy Type strikes deal average damage to Electric Types).
|Number: 603||Type: Electric||Evolves from: Tynamo||Evolves into: Eelektross|
Eelektrik (シビビール Shibibīru?), known as the Electric Fish Pokémon, is the evolution of Tynamo. It is also based on electric eels and lampreys. They coil around foes and shock them with electricity-generating organs that seem simply to be circular patterns. These Pokémon have a big appetite. When they spot their prey, they attack it and paralyze it with electricity.
|Number: 604||Type: Electric||Evolves from: Eelektrik||Evolves into: None|
Eelektross (シビルドン Shibirudon?), known as the Electric Fish Pokémon, is the evolution of Eelektrik. It evolves from Eelektrik when it contacts a Thunderstone. Eelektross is an eel-like Pokémon that resembles a lamprey, with a long tentacle-like, finned limb extending from its head. It has red eyes, dark blue body, and, unlike its earlier evolutions, possesses clawed, paddle-like arms with yellow spots and yellow-and-red palms. It has a beige fin on the upper portion of its body and beige fin-like legs below. It is also the final evolution of Tynamo. Eelektross and its evolutionary relatives are the only Pokémon to have no weaknesses other than Ghost/Dark. However, this is due to their Levitate ability, which eliminates what would be their sole weakness to the Ground type.
|Number: 605||Type: Psychic||Evolves from: None||Evolves into: Beheeyem|
Elgyem (リグレー Rigurē?, Ligray), known as the Cerebral or Brain Pokémon, is an extraterrestrial Pokémon. It is based on greys.

It uses strong psychic power to squeeze its opponent's brain, causing unbearable headaches. This Pokémon had never been seen until it appeared from far in the desert 50 years ago. Since then, they live in their Celestial Tower in Unova. The name is taken from "LGM", a term commonly used to describe aliens.
|Number: 606||Type: Psychic||Evolves from: Elgyem||Evolves into: None|

Editor Chris Sims listed Lampent in ComicsAlliance's list of "Pokemon's Ten Most Disturbing Pokedex Entries", stating "while its one of the more fun designs-- its the middle entrant in a series that sees a candle evolve into a lamp that then evolves into a chandelier -- Lampent is pretty much the embodiment of that weirdness."
|Number: 609||Type: Ghost/Fire||Evolves from: Lampent||Evolves into: None|
Chandelure (シャンデラ Shandera?), known as the Luring Pokémon and based on a chandelier, is the evolution of Lampent.

It is said that if you make contact with a Chandelure's Hitodama your soul will be burned, leaving only a shell of the victim's body. It can also hypnotize others by swinging its fires.
GamesRadar named it "easily one of the coolest new Unova Pokemon both looks-wise and gameplay-wise." In a poll by Official Nintendo Magazine, Chandelure was voted as one of the best Pokémon from Black and White.

Deino (モノズ Monozu?) is a Pokémon characterised as being blind. Deino is based on a dragon, specifically an infant form of Yamata no Orochi. Its blindness and the fact that it is only found in the Victory Road cave may mean it suffers from subterranean blindness. Deino may also be partially based on various cave salamanders due to their blindness. It has four legs. Its skin color is blue, and a thick black fur covers most of its face and its neck. There are 6 purple spots in the fur, and the fur makes the shape of a horn on the top of its head. There is a short tail on its back.

Volcarona (ウルガモス Urugamosu?, Ulgamoth) is a large moth-like Pokémon, that is heavily inspired in appearance by Hathor and an Atlas Moth. In the Pokédex entry, a mythological account tells of a volcano's ash darkening the sun, and Volcarona's flames providing a replacement of light. Other facts such as its title as "Sun Pokémon", and the fact it dwells in-game within an abandoned sun temple in a desert, imply it is a solar deity akin to the Egyptian sun god Ra.
One can be found sealed off at the end of a deep maze in the Relic Castle after defeating Team Plasma and talking to one of the Seven Sages who was planning to capture it for his lord, Ghetsis. A Volcarona is used by Pokémon League Champion, Alder.

Legends say that it put an end to the mischief caused by both Tornadus and Thundurus when they were destroying the land of the Unova by causing massive thunderstorms and tornados that shred apart the ground. After banishing the mischievous Pokémon, it regrew and refertilized the land of Unova. It can be found in the Abundant Shrine area after catching both Tornadus and Thundurus. Lands visited by Landorus grant such bountful crops that it has been hailed as "The Guardian of the Fields."
Landorus gains an alternate form in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 after being obtained in the side game Pokémon Dream Radar (known in Japan as Pokémon AR Searcher).

Kyurem has small arms, wings with two large claws (with the right wing noticeably shorter than the left), a long tail that ends in a fork, a head covered by ice with yellow eyes, and a very long, slender neck.
A legend behind the Pokémon states that it came to Earth on an icy meteor from space. At night, it came to Lacunosa Town to terrorize and to eat its inhabitants, causing the residents of the town to lock their doors at night and never exit their house unless the sun is up. Another legend states that it is solely the living corpse of the ancient dragon that both Reshiram and Zekrom split from after its original owners had a conflict with each other on how to rule the Unova region. In a poll conducted by IGN, it was voted as the 77th best Pokémon, where the staff commented on how its typing and stats make it "a formidable Pokémon".
Alternate forms of Kyurem were announced with the revealing of the new Pokémon Black Version 2 and White Version 2 games. On Junichi Masuda's Twitter page they were formally called Black Kyurem (ブラックキュレム Burakku Kyuremu?) and White Kyurem (ホワイトキュレム Howaito Kyuremu?). Kyurem can change into these forms by using a special item to merge with either Reshiram or Zekrom.
Kyurem has a central role in the 15th Pokémon film "Kyurem vs. the Sword of Justice, along with Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, and Keldeo, which introduced the Black Kyurem and White Kyurem forms. There, Keldeo arrogantly challenges him to a battle to prove his worth, but Kyurem crushes him and freezes his family, causing him to flee. Kyurem relentlessly pursues him for the entire movie, trying to finish the duel Keldeo started.
|Number: 647||Type: Water/Fighting||Does not evolve|
Keldeo (ケルディオ Kerudio?), known as the Colt Pokémon, is a small unicorn-like Pokémon. Keldeo is related to Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion in its video game and anime mythology. Most of its body is cream-colored, and it has a large, red mane, and a light blue, long tail. On its face there are long, dark blue, ridged eyebrow-like features, and a single horn. It has round dark blue hooves. In Black 2 and White 2, Keldeo a unique new form when it learns the move Secret Sword. Its default form is called Ordinary Form (いつものすがた Itsumo no Sugata?), but its new form is called Resolute Form (かくごのすがた Kakugo no Sugata?), where dark blue features around its head merge around its horn, producing a much stronger dark blue horn.
During the war between humans and Pokémon, a fire started in the Moor of Icirrus. As a result, many Pokémon, including Keldeo, were left homeless. Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion acted as its parents, and taught it the necessary skills for survival. Eventually, Keldeo grew and surpassed the three Pokémon, and left the forest one day without anyone knowing why. Upon reuniting with the members of its quartet in its old home, they teach it Secret Sword.
Keldeo debuted in the fifteenth Pokémon film Kyurem vs. the Sword of Justice, portrayed by voice actress and Pokémon fan Shoko Nakagawa. As a video game character, it was initially made available to those in Japan who saw the film in theaters. Its international release begins with distribution through GameStop stores in the United States and EB Games stores in Canada beginning on August 27, 2012, followed by distribution in the United Kingdom at Game and Gamestation stores on September 1, 2012, in Australia at EB Games Australia and Target Australia on September 15, and other nations throughout September and October.

Meloetta (メロエッタ Meroetta?) is a small feminine humanoid Pokémon with long, green hair and is one of the few Pokémon to have alternate forms. Its default form is Aria Forme (ボイスフォルム Boisu Forumu?, Voice Forme), but it can also transform into Pirouette Forme (ステップフォルム Suteppu Forumu?, Step Forme), where its long green hair forms into a compact red beehive hairstyle and its body seems to take on more of a ballerina's form. It changes forme whenever it uses its unique move Relic Song.
Meloetta once played a song and danced lightly, filling people's hearts with joy. However, sorrow darkened the world, and it lost its voice and red shoes. Upon entering a café in Castelia City, a guitarist who knows the story plays Meloetta's melody. Upon playing it, Meloetta remembers the song it once danced to long ago, and learns Relic Song.
Meloetta appears in a short film that accompanied Kyurem vs. the Sword of Justice in Japanese theaters, entitled Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade! (Meroetta no Kirakira Resaitaru (メロエッタのキラキラリサイタル?)). Said short was dubbed and posted on Pokemon.com, where it will remain until March 24. The same Meloetta is a main character in the Best Wishes! Season 2 anime, joining Ash, Iris, Cilan, Cynthia, and Dawn in their journeys through Eastern Unova. It leaves a little while afterward.
