By blasting water from its hooves, it can glide across water. It excels at using leg moves while battling.

Keldeo, the My Little Pony Pokemon. I mean look at it, it can easily be a MLP character.
Anyway, I made Keldeo today, to celebrate the fact that Keldeo has been officially announced in CoroCoro magazine (even though the Internets already knew about it when the game first came out from the game data)
Keldeo is the second 5th gen event legendary (after Victini). It’ll be the star of the next Pokemon movie, titled “Kyurem VS The Sacred Swordsman – Keldeo”. No event details yet, but will likely be a wi-fi event.
Keldeo is only the second Water/Fighting type, which is a shame ’cause Water/Fighting is a pretty decent type combination. Though design-wise, I don’t really see the Fighting or Water inspiration, other than the blue mane and tail representing Water, I guess. Despite being based on a unicorn, which I like, I don’t really like Keldeo’s design. It’s the 4th Musketeer, though while the other three (Terrakion, Cobalion, and Virizion) look regal and proud, to me, Keldeo looks rather silly and “cute”, maybe it’s meant to be a child, or something (it is the Colt Pokemon). I still can’t get over how weird its nose/snout looks, it looks like a hippo nose X.x
Stat-wise, it actually has the lowest base stat total of event legendaries; they’re usually at 600, while Keldeo only has 580. It has good Sp Attack (the highest of all Fighting types) and Speed. Its Attack is decent, but not great. A lot of moves it can learn by level-up are physical though (especially Fighting moves), but it does learn Swords Dance by level-up to boost its Attack. It has a Signature Move, Secret Sword (not to be confused with Sacred Sword, which is learned by all the musketeers), that it only gets it from the event (though I imagine by event is the only legit way to get a Keldeo anyway).
