Giant Chasm (Forest)
It should be pretty easy to slide on over to the northeast, so do so until you reach a point where you'll have to get a little clever. Once you hit the edge with a ice shard to your left, you can get around it by sliding right, down, left, down, right, and then up. That'll get you over to the stairs leading down.
From there, it's really easy to get over to the steps leading down into the normal part of the chasm's forest. Do so and then head north, until you find stairs leading into a cave.
Giant Chasm (Kyurem's Chamber)
Well, this is it. Get ready to take on two difficulty foes, one right after the other.
At the back of the cave, you'll run into Ghetsis! After some chit-chat, he'll summon forth Kyurem and will order it to use Glaciate on you, although you'll be saved by none other than N, riding in on either Zekrom (Black 2) or Reshiram (White 2)!
Some very epic cutscenes ensue afterward, showing Kyurem fusing with the other legendary Pokemon to become Black Kyurem (Black 2) or White Kyurem (White 2)! Now you'll have to fight against it!
|Black Kyurem Lv. 55
Black 2 only. Cannot be caught.
|White Kyurem Lv. 55
White 2 only. Cannot be caught.
Both of these two are Dragon/Ice-type, giving them weaknesses to Rock-, Fighting-, Steel-, and Dragon-type attacks. They have monstrous stats, though, and strong moves. Black Kyurem has Fusion Bolt (100 power Electric-type attack) and the powerful Freeze Shock (Ice-type), which has 140 power (!!) but requires a turn of charging. White Kyurem has Fusion Flare (100 power Fire-type attack) and Ice Burn, which is similar to Freeze Shock, except it is Special-based and has a 30% chance to burn any survivors as well. Both have DragonBreath and Slash tossed in for good measure.
Black Kyurem's Attack stat is second only to Attack Forme Deoxys, while White Kyurem's Special Attack stat is similarly high, once again second only to that Deoxys forme. They both have colossal stats, too. Thankfully, there's six of your Pokemon and only one of them, so you should be able to keep whittling away at it until you knock it out.
No Catching Kyurem!
You're completely prevented from using any variety of Poke Balls against Black Kyurem and White Kyurem, so don't worry about knocking it out. You'll be able to catch Reshiram/Zekrom and Kyurem separately later on, after beating the game, and then fuse them together to get yourself a Black Kyurem or White Kyurem, but you're not going to be able to until then.
After beating Black Kyurem or White Kyurem, it will split from Zekrom or Reshiram respectively and then disappear, leaving N with his friend and leaving one very angry Ghetsis in its stead. You're not going to have any time to switch out your Pokemon, but at least N heals them up!

Cofagrigus loves to annoy you by using Toxic on the first turn, and then spamming Protect to whittle away your health. Administering an Antidote or Pecha Berry (or Full Heal) on the turn after he uses Toxic is a smart move, because he's likely just going to use Protect anyway.
His Eelektross can be a pain due to it lacking any weaknesses, thanks to its Levitate ability. Just try to take it down with your strongest attacks, then, but refrain from using any Ground-type attacks unless your Pokemon is packing Mold Breaker (which will get around that Levitate ability).
Be wary of using Psychic-type Pokemon against his Toxicroak. While their Psychic-type attacks are super effective, it packs Sucker Punch — a Dark-type attack that lets it strike first, but fails if the foe isn't using a damaging attack. That can spell trouble for any of your Psychic-types looking to capitalize on its weakness.
Lastly, his Hydreigon is a very powerful Pokemon packing a wide assortment of moves. It's a Dragon/Dark-type, giving it only a normal weakness to Ice-type attacks instead of a double weakness. Fighting- and Bug-type attacks are also effective against it due to its second type, while Dragon-type attacks also put it in its place. It has a Life Orb held to boost the power of its attacks by 30%, although it will receive 10% of its max HP in recoil damage after doing damage.
After beating him, he'll talk for awhile, and then N will say some sentimental stuff. Ghetsis doesn't want to have any of that, though. One of the Shadow Triad appears and teleports him away.
Immediately afterwards, Hugh will show up and will ask if you took care of Team Plasma or something; whatever you answer doesn't matter. After some more talking, he'll tell you that you need to go to the Pokemon League now, and you can do so through taking the Giant Chasm to Route 23 and then heading through Victory Road. Nice!
Before you do that, though, be sure to pick up some items in the Giant Chasm's forest on your way out!
Giant Chasm (Forest)
Now that there's not a gigantic Plasma Frigate in the middle of the area, you are free to explore the whole place and pick up some previously inaccessible items.
There's a PP Up just to the east of where the Plasma Frigate was, sitting around by some fallen trees.
In the southern part of the forest, accessible around where Rood and the two Original Team Plasma Grunts are and then to the east, you can find a Star Piece sitting over in the forested area in the southeast corner of the area.
Directly west of the Team Plasma guys and then a little north, through some grass, you'll find TM03 (Psyshock), which is an 80 power Special-based Psychic-type attack, but it calculates damage based on the foe's Defense stat rather than their Special Defense stat.
Head out to the empty part in the middle of the forest and then just north of the TM, heading west into the forest. Jump down a ledge there and head over to the northwest part of the whole Giant Chasm forest to find a Carbos. Head east of that, but don't jump down the ledge yet; instead, head south and a Sun Stone.
Due north of the entrance to the forest part of the chasm is a Hidden Grotto that can now be accessed.
