    Hi! I'm quite new to Smogon, so I don't exactly think this will be accepted right off the bat.

    Kyurem-W is, to put it simply, a killing machine. Even with a lacking 95 base Speed, It outspeeds many important threats, such as Landorus-T, to name a few, Reshiram, and Zekrom, to name a few. It boasts a STAB Ice Beam as well as the most powerful Draco Meteor in the game. As said before however, its Speed and poor defensive typing can sometimes let you down. Rest assured, Kyurem-W is a huge threat, so underestimate at your own peril.
    Basically, this is a Kyurem- W set that involves Substitute and Ice Burn. WHAT??? ICE BURN??? Much like Breloom and its SubPunch set, this requires using Substitute to cover up a charge up move. (Ice Burn)
    Name: SubBurn
    Move 1: Substitute
    Move 2: Ice Burn
    Move 3: Draco Meteor
    Moove 4: Fusion Flare / Focus Blast / Earth Power
    Ability: Turboblaze
    Item: Life Orb
    Nature: Modest / Timid
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA 252 Spe
    IVs: 30 SpA / 30 Spe
    With its gargantuan Special Attack stat, you might be wondering why Kyurem-W uses Substitute over another move, the answer is simple. Kyurem-W's signature move, Ice Burn, requires a turn to charge, so Substitute is used to cover up that turn, turning a shaky, unreliable attack into a devastatingly destructive force. As stated before, Kyurem-W boasts the strongest Draco Meteor in the game, which is certainly nothing to scoff about. The last slot is a toss-up between Fusion Flare, Earth Power, and Focus Blast. Fusion Flare is preferred if you have Groudon support, Earth Power can be used if you fear Arceus- Poison, and Focus Blast dispatches Arceus- Dark. The latter two have extremely similar coverage, but can replace each other, depending on which Arceus form you fear most.

    Life Orb is preferred on this set, due to the sheer power it brings. The EVs and IVs are very obvious, as Kyurem is built to hit hard, and needs to be fast enough to dispatch other, slower threats. The Nature can either be Modest or Timid, a Modest Nature is preferred if you want to hit harder, but Timid should be used if you want extra speed.

    Damage Calculations
    252SpAtk Life Orb Turboblaze Kyurem White (+SAtk) Ice Burn vs 252HP/252SpDef Leftovers Lugia (+SpDef): 100% - 119% (420 - 498 HP).Guaranteed OHKO.
    252SpAtk Life Orb Turboblaze Kyurem White (+SAtk) Ice Burn vs 252HP/252SpDef Cresselia (+SpDef): 53% - 63% (238 - 282 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO.

    Provided a Sub is up, Kyurem-W can wreak havoc with Ice Burn.

    Sorry, but unlike SubPunch, it doesn't activate at the end of the turn. Ice Burn is outclassed by Blizzard. The reason Kyurem-B is viable with the set with Freeze shock is its lack of physical Ice STAB, even then, it'd rather use Ice Beam from the special side. The set is also wore down quickly. You don't need an overview for new sets btw.

    Focus Punch works in the space one turn (provided you don't get hit), and Ice Burn works in two turns unless you use Power Herb.

    Kyurem's ice beam doesn't need a recharge turn, while having more power in two hits. Ice burn should never be used on kyurem-w.

    NO, two turn attacks usually don't work and oh you can't reject your own analysis. Kyurem-W can just use Ice Beam and hit harder in 2 turns why use Ice Burn. Draco Meteor with Substitute? Also your analysis format is wrong.

    Since you want it to be rejected, enjoy :D
