    Is this a good moveset for Kyurem. If not, tell me what to change to improve it to make it better.

    Glaciate
    Dragon Pulse
    Imprison
    Endeavor

    Imprision and Endeavor have to go.

    Glaciate may be a bit inferior to Ice Beam, so I'd run that.

    Dragon Pulse may be subbed for Draco MEteor, but that's preference.

    Focus Blast is nice for coverage.

    Shadow Ball, HP Fire, or HP Ground work for the last slot.

    It is a shame Kyurem gets no good physical moves at all, what a waste of an otherwise incredible atk stat...pretty much makes him inferior to Reshiram in most aspects and completely outclased by Zekrom, his only saving grace is that he has the Speed to at least OHKO either of them likely with a Draco Meteor...

    But yeah, definitely not Endeavor or Imprison, Endeavor is fail as Kyurem doesn't even get Endure, and what exactly are you Imprisoning and getting benefit from? Imprison is definitely more of a doubles tactic (unless this is what you're aiming for, though in any case there's better options for Imprison already!).

    Ice Beam (or Blizzard if you're using Aboma) definitely outrank Glaciate, though Glaciate is useful if you're doing this in doubles (though still debatable over having over Blizzard then, power vs slow effect and such). What else...definitely have Draco Meteor or Dragon Pulse in a moveslot, followed by your choice of Ice attack, then round it out with Shadow Ball and Focus Blast or a Hidden Power of your choice really. Protect is also nice again if you're gonna use this in doubles, though it has merits in singles as well.

    It gets Outrage, so it CAN go mixed.

    Thanks guys. Once this guy gets in level, I will change its moveset.

    Meh I dunno even then, you're playing with essentially a nerfed EV spread then imo, as he's probably gonna need some decent investment into Atk EVs to KO stuff, whereas if you go with a full 252 SpA and Dragon Pulse or Draco Meteor, you'll probably deal as much damage (or more if you opt for Meteor). Only thing I can see it being useful for is something like Blissey, and even then you should have other options for dealing with it than making Kyurem mixed.

    i've been looking at kyurem's move pool (including tms) and i think it would be good to have a moveset that's something like:

    Ice beam (for obvious reasons)
    Dragon Pulse (i don't really like draco meteor since it lowers your spatk)
    Psychic (to get rid of those pesky fighting types)
    Endeavor (this slot is basically something for you to choose, i'd go with endavor but everyones seems to disagree with me, i just like being able to bring a full hp pokemon to red before doing something like quick attack next turn to Ko it. Your other choice is a fighting type move like Focus Blast which is probably the best fighting attack kyurem can learn to take care of rock types and steel types which will basically cover all of kyurems weaknesses (not including double typed pokemon of course).
