'''Keldeo''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''ケルディオ''' ''Keldeo'') is a dual-type {{2t|Water|Fighting}} [[legendaryLegendary Pokémon]].
While it is not known to [[Evolution|evolve]] into or from any Pokémon, it has a [[Form differences#Keldeo|second form]], which is activated by triggering an event in the [[Pledge Grove]], where {{p|Cobalion}}, {{p|Virizion}}, and {{p|Terrakion}} teach it {{m|Secret Sword}}, and it changes its form permanently as long as it knows Secret Sword. Its original form, '''Ordinary Form''', will then become '''Resolute Form'''.
===Major appearances===
====[[Keldeo (M15)]]====
{{mov|Keldeo|Keldeo|15}} made its debut in the [[M15|fifteenth]] [[Pokémon movie]] ''[[M15|Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice]]'', being one of its stars along with [[Swords of Justice (M15)|Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion]] and {{mov|Kyurem|Kyurem|15}}. In the film, it was training to learn how to use {{m|Sacred Sword}} so it could become one of the '''[[Swords of Justice]]''', but arrogantly picked a fight with Kyurem before it had learned the move. Keldeo becomes terrified and flees during the middle of the fight, but is pursued relentlessly by Kyurem, who is determined to finish their battle. Along with the other legendaryLegendary Pokémon present in the movie, Keldeo can [[Talking Pokémon|speak through telepathy]].
===Minor appearances===
** Its legs seem to be stylized after animal legs and hooves, unlike the others, which seem to have boots.
** Keldeo's name doesn't end with -ion.
* Keldeo, along with {{p|Meloetta}}, are the only {{pkmn2|event}}-exclusive [[legendaryLegendary Pokémon]] to learn their [[signature move]]s from an external source.
* Keldeo has the lowest base stat total of all event-exclusive legendaryLegendary Pokémon, excluding {{p|Phione}}, whose legendaryLegendary status is disputed.
* Its trait of running across water mirrors {{p|Suicune}}, another quadrupedal {{type|Water}} legendaryLegendary Pokémon.
* Due to Keldeo not being legitimately available in {{g|Black and White}} outside of events, the legendaryLegendary Pokémon battle theme and the Swords of Justice intro can only play when Keldeo is battled in-game via [[cheating]].
* Keldeo is the lightest and smallest of the Swords of Justice.
