An early screening of Kyurem and the Sacred Swordman - Keldeo took place in Japan today, as has been the case for Pokemon movies these past few years. And as usual, after the credits finished, a teaser for next year's movie rolled. According to one moviegoer, the teaser showed some kind of "flying saucer" hovering over a wasteland and changing into Genesect! Not that there was any doubt Genesect would be featured in the 16th movie as the last fifth generation Pokemon to be revealed, but still exciting nonetheless! Hopefully we'll see the teaser online within the next few weeks and Genesect's official revealing soon after.

Thanks to Nicor123 from our forums, we now have the blister pack image for Dragons Exalted, which will come with three booster packs, a coin, and one of two promos. It appears that one of the two promos will be Chandelure from Next Destinies, as pictured below, though there's a possibility that the card image is merely a placeholder for the real promo.

As we stated in an update to our Dragons Exalted news story last week, the card images used in the images of the DragonSpeed and DragonSnarl theme decks were incorrect. As you can see below, the decks use the other Garchomp and Hydreigon from Japan's BW5 Dragon Blade and Dragon Blast.

You must click here to view this news story by itself or you won't be able to see my live coverage to the right of the video.

PokeBeach has decided to try something a little different this time for our coverage of Pokemon Black 2 and White 2... instead of simply just reporting our findings, why not also stream our play-through so that you can experience the games with us? As such, below, you will find a live stream of Puddizzle playing Pokemon Black 2. As he plays, I will be updating the scroll box below with any noteworthy information. Note that the bullet points will automatically appear a little bit after I write them - there is no need to refresh the page. You can just sit back and enjoy. :)

Note that sometimes the stream loses audio, in which case we usually let it go for a few minutes and then restart it. If that's the case, when we cut off the stream, you simply wait a few minutes and then refresh the page. We're not going to go anywhere until we note so in the notes box to the right of the video, so just wait a bit and then keep refreshing until it goes back up.

To discuss our coverage, come visit our chat room and post in this thread on our forums. If you don't have a PB forum account, it only takes a minute to sign up. Feel free to spread the word and this news story on Facebook!

You can find a very detailed walkthrough of the game up until Clay's Gym by clicking the link below this paragraph and scrolling through all of our notes to the right of the now-inactive video. We hope you join us tomorrow - tonight's coverage was an absolute blast!

Black 2 and White 2 will be released in Japan in less than a day, but many fans on Japanese's 2ch board have received their copies early. As such, we are continuing to collect and translate the information they reveal below. Because the information comes from multiple players, and they sometimes are not very clear, there is a possibility some of the information below is not completely accurate. But when our copies arrive, we'll begin our own coverage.
