Description: A cream colored, pony-like Pokémon, Keldeo is a Mythical Pokémon and one of the Swords of Justice. It has a fluffy, red mane and a fluffy, light blue tail, as well as light blue fur around its collar and neck. Keldeo has a single cream colored horn coming out the center of its forehead and two, dark blue ridges protruding from either side of its forehead. Its dark blue hooves are capable of shooting jets of water at its opponents.

When it learns the move Secret Sword, Keldeo changes from it's Ordinary form into its Resolute Form permanently. In its Resolute Form, Keldeo's mane grows longer and curlier. The blue ridges change shape to resemble ears and grow considerably lighter. The horn at the center of its forehead turns dark blue, much longer and jagged in shape. It also gains three feathers in the center of its mane: one orange, one green and one light blue.

Keldeo is part of a Legendary quartet of Pokémon known as the Swords of Justice, based on The Three Musketeers. It represents d'Artagnan, the young new addition to the group. The other three members of the group are Cobalion who represents Athos, the oldest and de facto leader of the group; Terrakion who represents Porthos, the strongest member of the group; and Virizion who represents Aramis, the feminine and romantic member of the group. Keldeo is the only member of the group who did not fight in the war against Humans. Instead, Keldeo was orphaned during the war and raised by the other Swords of Justice. After teaching it all they knew, Keldeo surpased the others.
