Niantic removes Black and White Kyurem from players accounts

Posted in

We recently wrote about how Niantic accidentally released Black and White Kyurem through GO Battle League rewards, and we promised to circle back on this story as soon as we have more information.

Today, Niantic Support tweeted that both Pokémon will be removed from players’ accounts, and that affected Trainers will receive in-game compensation:

This is the in-game compensation that affected Trainers are getting for these Pokémon getting removed from their accounts:

  • Candy icon 250× Kyurem Candy
  • Star Piece icon 5× Star Piece
  • Lucky Egg icon 5× Lucky Egg
  • Stardust icon 250000× Stardust

We previously wrote that we do not know if Niantic will remove these Pokémon, as this really hasn’t been a common practice before, and we are actually surprised that Niantic did remove them.

Apparently, Black Kyurem and White Kyurem are important enough to keep them off the table for a while, and it probably makes sense for Niantic to pull the bandaid rather than supporting them in the long run.

As of now, the only reminders of these Pokémon that we have are these catch images, and the odd tweet here and there:
