The official Japanese Pokemon website has updated with a new trailer for Black 2 and White 2, as you can see below. It showcases all of the screenshots and information that was leaked in CoroCoro yesterday, but doesn't reveal anything majorly new. Remember, Pokemon Smash is set to feature Junichi Masuda tomorrow, though he may just reveal the same information we've already learned this week - we'll find out tomorrow!

May CoroCoro May CoroCoro May CoroCoro May CoroCoro
  • (1st scan) The games are true sequels, taking place two years after the originals.
  • The Unova region sports new towns, buildings, locations, and Gym Leaders. New subway lines will take you to new places.
  • Half of the Unova map is covered by ice for unknown reasons.
  • The Pokedex features 300 Pokemon from every generation. So far, Psyduck is #026, Riolu is #033, Metagross is #254, and Eevee is confirmed but has an unknown Dex number.
  • Black Kyurem is confirmed to know Freeze Shock and White Kyurem is confirmed to know Ice Burn.
  • (2nd scan) There are two new protagonists along with a new rival. The rival has text saying, "Now I'm gonna get angry!" He's the boy with the blue spiky hair. He is your childhood friend.
  • Homika is a new Poison-type Gym Leader. She's the girl holding the guitar. She is going to be in an episode of the show in June.
  • Shizui is also a new Gym Leader who uses Water Pokemon. He's the tan guy with the goggles.
  • There is a new "mysterious guy" named Akuroma who is studying Pokemon strength. Sometimes he'll help you on your journey. He's the guy with the glasses and white coat.
  • (3rd scan) You begin your journey in Hiougi City. It is on the map in an area that was previously uninhabited in the original games on the left side of Unova (the southwest side). It features an underwater tunnel made of glass (does it take you to the main region?). The city also sports a Pokemon Center, a Trainer School, and shops.
  • The magazine points out that there is new construction in the Resort Desert and that there is a new building with red and blue decorations. For the latter it says, "What's it mean?"

Oha Suta today aired a new trailer for the 15th movie, Kyurem vs. the Sacred Swordsman - Keldeo. In the trailer, Keldeo tries to fight against Kyurem despite Virizion, Cobalion, and Terrakion telling him that he is not ready yet. However, Ash encourages him and asks, "Don't you want to be a Sacred Swordman?" Kyurem uses a Fire-type attack in its regular forme against Water-type Keldeo, though Kyurem currently can't learn any offensive Fire-type moves. The trailer also shows a short clip from Meloetta's Sparkling Recital, the short that will air before the movie, which shows Meloetta's Pirouette Forme for the first time. Thanks goes to Gin for the translations! The movie website will likely update soon with an extended trailer and more information.

The front page of this month's CoroCoro features Meloetta's Pirouette Forme, a Normal / Fighting type: its head is in the fourth pink character of the magazine's title. This likely means Meloetta will get a full promotion this year alongside Keldeo, the first time two "hidden" Legendaries have shared the spotlight at the same time. This also means Genesect will probably get all the attention next year with the 16th movie as the last unrevealed Legendary of Generation V.

The rest of CoroCoro will likely leak, at the earliest, tomorrow or Friday. The section of the front page next to Meloetta, Black Kyurem, and White Kyurem also shows two human characters who could be new protagonists or characters in the game, but they may also be from an unrelated franchise (since Japanese magazines like to smoosh everything together). We'll find out if they are or not within the next few days!

Pokemon Smash is set to feature Junichi Masuda next week, who will be revealing the first gameplay footage of Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2. However, CoroCoro magazine will likely leak before then, so this coming week will definitely be the first real week of substantial BW2 news. Be sure to keep checking back here for all the latest!

Pokemon.com has announced that Pokemon + Nobunaga's Ambition will be released in English as Pokemon Conquest! This after there were doubts the game would be released outside Japan due to its heavy focus on Japanese history and terminology. The region of "Ranse" has been localized to "Ransei" and the bushou have been renamed "Warlords." The game will be released in the United States on June 18th, only three months after its Japanese release - talk about quick translating! You can view Pokemon's announcement below.

A new "Kyurem Box" has been announced and will come with a new Kyurem promo, a Kyurem figurine, and four Black and White series booster packs.

In the Pokémon Trading Card Game: Kyurem Box, you’ll find the amazing Kyurem as a spectacular collectible figure that brings legendary force to your training!
