Much like members of other legendary trios, the three Pokémon have similar appearances. Each has {{t|Dragon}} as their primary type. Both Reshiram and Zekrom have a base stat total of 680 while Kyurem's is 660.
Each of the members of the trio havehas control of their own types and sides. Reshiram represents the concept of {{wp|yin and yang|yang}} and controls {{t|Fire}}, Zekrom represents the concept of {{wp|yin and yang|yin}} and controls {{t|Electric|Thunder}}, and Kyurem represents the concept of {{wp|Wuji (philosophy)|wuji}} (the absence of yin and yang) and controls {{t|Ice}}.
* It is so far the only legendary trio with no known [[trio master]] as of yet.
* This legendary trio is the first since the [[legendary birds]] to return to the three types being {{t|Fire}}-, {{t|Electric}}-, and {{type|Ice}}, even though these types are secondary to the Dragon type.
** Each of the three havehas [[List of Pokémon with unique type combinations|type combinations unique to themselves]].
* The Tao Trio have their own battle transition. A few lights will gather in the center of the screen, and a swirl vortex will zoom in from the center.
* Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem are occasionally known as the "Blazing White Yang", "Electrifying Black Yin", and "Frozen Boundary", respectively. This is a reference to the concept of Yin and Yang of Taoism.
