Trivia

  • It was first revealed on the official Pokémon website on May 28, 2010 along with Reshiram. This makes the two the first Pokémon simultaneously revealed worldwide.
  • Zekrom has similar traits of those found in Zapdos.
    • Both are a part of a Legendary Trio.
    • Both are a part of a Fire-Electric-Ice trio.
    • Both are the Electric type in their trio.
    • Both of the names of these legendary Pokémon start with "Z".
  • Zekrom is the first Pokémon to have a type combination of Dragon and Electric. It is so far the only Pokémon to have this permanent type combination. The only other Pokémon to have this type combination is Mega Ampharos but reversed.
  • Zekrom, along with Reshiram and Kyurem, is part of the Tao Trio. Zekrom embodies mechanism.
  • The roar used for Zekrom is Megaguirus', a monster from the Godzilla franchise. In Movie 14, though, he had the roar of Baragon, another monster from the same franchise. Reshiram received Megaguirus' roar, as a result.
  • Zekrom when speaking telepathically is voiced by Hideki Takahashi in Pokémon The Movie: Black/White and Marc Thompson in its dub. Zekrom’s speaks in a raspy voice similar to Kyurem.
  • Zekrom also appears in a Dream World minigame; if the WIFI Zekrom from the Black version game is brought over to the Dream World, in the special home, Victini appears, and afterwards, at the intro of that minigame, Victini tries to break the barrier, but its attack is useless, and so the player has to ask his/her WIFI Zekrom for help by collecting power ups. The finishing move is Zekrom using an electrical attack to blow up the barrier.
  • Zekrom's move, Bolt Strike, is Thundurus' species.
  • It has a strong resemblance with Red-Eyes Black Dragon of Yu-Gi-Oh due to having red eyes and black body.

Etymology

Zekrom's name comes from the Japanese word "kuro", which means "black", referencing its color. 'Ze' is used as a harder sound then Rehiram's 'Re', to indicate a stronger pokemon.
