    Only a few more days! As usual, we’ll be covering the games as we play through them, so be sure to check back! Also, don’t forget that the Speed Gamers marathon is still going on! They’ve raised almost 75% of their goal so far but still need all the support you can give.

    Famitsu Magazine has also reviewed Black 2 and White 2, though because of all the information we’ve already received this week, there isn’t really anything we don’t already know about. The top left of the seventh scan shows Pokewood, which appears to resemble a studio lot. The last scan reveals more of the boat that goes from Virbank City to Castelia City. You chase Team Plasma along with your rival and Homika’s dad, similar to what we saw in the promotional anime trailer. Everything in that trailer has come directly from the games so far, and that being the case, you’ll probably end up chasing the Shadow Triad in a frozen city at some point as they take off with some sort of object.

    Famitsu also gave B2W2 a 36/40, praising the after-story gameplay, Pokewood, the Fes Missions, and the Pokedex’s ability to see which Pokemon are available in each area. The original Black and White scored a perfect 40/40.

    Last week a type chart from the official B2W2 guidebook leaked and showed that Ghost-types would no longer be resistant to Bug-type moves. However, the type chart below shows the type effectiveness as it has been since Gold and Silver, meaning the earlier leak was in error and nothing has changed.

    On November 28th, a new “Pikachu the Movie Premium Box Set” will be released in Japan containing the first thirteen Pokemon movies – from Mewtwo Strikes Back to Zoroark: Master of Illusions – all remastered in high-definition for the first time! The entire set will cost 38,640 yen ($485) and also includes five of the movie shorts. The two Victini movies will not be included since they were already released on Blu-Ray last year.

    America already has a few of the Pokemon movies on Blu-Ray, but since many of the films have distribution rights with different companies, it’s unlikely we’ll ever get the same sort of box set. Pokemon movie releases in Japan have included the English dub before, so there’s a possibility this box set may too. If so, it may be the only way to watch all the Pokemon movies in English and HD if you’re the kind of fan who fancies that sort of thing (I am! :p).

    Update #2 (9:30 AM) – The Pokemon Global Link website, which is now up again, has revealed the order of the Gym Leaders in the games. It’s Cheren (Balance Badge), Homika (Toxic Badge), Burgh (Beetle Badge), Elesa (Bolt Badge), Clay (Quake Badge), Skyla (Jet Badge), Drayden (Legend Badge), and Shizui (badge unknown). | Update (11:30 PM) – All the translations are done.

    Out of nowhere, Dengeki Magazine has revealed brand new Black 2 and White 2 details for the beginning of the games! Translations of the scans are below with a huge thanks to Puddizzle, one of our new translators!

    Dengeki Features Pokemon Black 2 White 2 Details

    Scan 1

    • Shows the layout of Hiougi City (Aspertia City), the starting city.
    • It has a Pokemon Gym run by Cheren, which is a Trainer school.
    • You can now watch different channels on the TVs in the game.
    • The magazine gives a checklist of what you do in each area. For Hiougi City, it’s meet your mom => meet rival at rival’s house => go with rival to meet Bianca => meet with Bianca => get a Pokemon and a Pokedex => battle your rival => meet with Bianca at the Pokemon Center => meet with your rival, your rival’s sister, and your mom and get the running shoes and town map => Route 19.

    Scan 2

    Dengeki Features Pokemon Black 2 White 2 Details

    • After Hiougi City, you step onto route 19.
    • Bianca teaches you how to catch a Pokemon and you meed Alder (you probably get your Poke Balls here).
    • Pokemon found on the route include Patrat and Purrloin.
    • The person who wrote the Dengeki article encountered a shiny Patrat when he played the game, as seen in the scan. Will this be the case for everyone who plays the game, or was he just extremely lucky?
    • After route 19 you go to Sangi Town and get a call from your mom. Apparently your mom and Alder know each other.
    • North of Sangi Town is where the Keldeo event occurs.
    • Checklist: Bianca teaches you how to catch a Pokemon => Meet with Alder => Sangi Town => Route 20.

    Scan 3

    Dengeki Features Pokemon Black 2 White 2 Details

    • After Sangi Town you head to route 20. You can encounter Sewaddle, Pidove, Dunsparce, Audino, Purrloin, Patrat, Venipede, and Sunkern here.
    • From route 20 you head north to Sangi Farm. Pokemon here include Azurill, Dunsparce, Pidove, Audino, Lilipup, Riolu, Mareep, Patrat, and Psyduck.
    • You fight your rival at Sangi Farm.
    • You proceed to head back to Hiougi City and fight Cheren in his Gym (a trainer school). He has a Level 11 Patrat and Level 13 Lillipup.
    • He gives you TM83 Work Up for defeating him.
    • Bianca gives you TM27 Return and the C-Gear after you beat Cheren. You can trade after you receive your C-Gear.
    • A man in the Pokemon Center will give you the Medal Box for the Medals System. As stated before, the Medals System awards you medals for accomplishing various goals.
    • Checklist: Route 20 => Sangi Farm => Rival Battle => Rival and you are asked to catch a Herdier by a Trainer => Return the Herdier, get TM21 Frustration => Sangi Town => Alder tells you to fight two Trainers in his house => Get the Medal Box, a Medal, and 6 Hint Medals => Hiougi City => Battle Gym Leader Cheren for the Basic Badge and TM83 => Bianca gives you TM27 and the C-Gear => Route 20 => Pokedex Upgraded => Tachiwaki City

    Scan 4

    Dengeki Features Pokemon Black 2 White 2 Details

    • You head east from route 20 to Tachiwaki City (Verbank City). The north exit of Tachiwaki City leads to Pokewood. The south part is called the Tachiwaki Combine.
    • Once per day, you can get a Great Ball as an item in the grass.
    • Wild Pokemon found in the Tachiwaki Combine include Pidove, Elekid (exclusive to White 2), Growlithe, Audino, Magby (exclusive to Black 2), Patrat, Magnemite, and Koffing.
    • After arriving in Tachiwaki City you are free to challenge Homika, the Poison-type Gym Leader.
    • She has a Level 16 Koffing and a Level 18 Whirlipede.
    • She gives you TM09, Venoshock, for defeating her.

    Scan 5

    Dengeki Features Pokemon Black 2 White 2 Details

    • Doesn’t show much, but re-confirms that Elesa has a level 28 Flaafy and shows her artwork (sorta).
    • Nothing new about Join Avenue.
    • You are able to access Black City and White Forest earlier in the game.

    Scan 6

    Dengeki Features Pokemon Black 2 White 2 Details

    • Team Plasma is separated into two factions now – “Team Plasma” and “Former Team Plasma.” The original one sides with N while the new one wants your typical evil plans of conquering the world: “We’ll liberate Pokemon and conquer the world!”
    • Akuroma has some connection to Team Plasma, though it doesn’t say what (like that wasn’t obvious).
    • Your rival and Team Plasma are related in some way. He is also mad at Team Plasma because they stole a Purrloin that was intended as a present.

    The Rest

    • First scan below: You can see the new in-game Unova map. The Pokedex has also been upgraded and shows you what Pokemon are found on what route!
    • Second: You can use PokeTransfer after you beat the game to transfer over your Pokemon from the fourth generation DS games.
    • Third: The Xtransceiver games (Balloon Smash and Balloon Catch) and the medals system.
    • Fourth: Keldeo learning Secret Sword.
    • Fifth: Kanto Starter and Pikachu eggs from the CoroCoro magazine scans the other day.
    • Sixth: Keldeo’s Resolute Form in the upcoming movie.
    • Last two: Shows off Pokemon found in the game.

    A sushi chain in Japan, Kura Zushi, is currently holding a promotion where you have a chance to win a Black 2 and White 2 DVD that contains some new B2W2 game footage. Thanks to Puddizzle from our forums, we now have the video – it’s a little over a minute long, but shows some footage of PokeWood, a battle against Misty in the World Tournament, a friend battle, and Black Kyurem and White Kyurem using Freeze Shock and Ice Burn. In the Misty battle, you can hear remixed Kanto Gym Leader music and Misty is titled “Pokemon Trainer Misty” rather than “Gym Leader Misty.”

    Pokemon Smash just finished airing and only revealed a few small tid-bits about Black 2 and White 2. As we already know, when you take Keldeo to the forest outside of Sangi Town, Keldeo will leave its Poke Ball and join Virizion, Terrakion, and Cobalion, who will shoot out energy and initiate Keldeo’s transformation into its Resolute Form. There is a small cut-scene showing Keldeo transforming when you do this, as you can see below.

    A small clip of Tachiwaki City was also shown. This is the city that Homika resides in (the Poison-type Gym Leader). Its English name is Verbank City, as revealed by a couple of future dub episode titles this week.

    Part of Best Wishes season 2’s opening debuted and revealed that Delia, Professor Oak, Tracey, and Ash’s old Pokemon will appear in the opening. Isn’t it sad that Ash leaves his Pokemon to rot with Professor Oak? It’s a fundamental flaw of a show that never ends. Oshawott, your time will come too!

    And an updated trailer for Kyurem vs. the Sacred Swordsman – Keldeo aired, giving us our first glimpse at Keldeo’s Resolute Form in the movie. Oddly, they’re not showing us many new scenes in these trailers. There used to be a time when they would release whole new trailers every other month or so.

    The cover page for the official Black 2 and White 2 guidebook has confirmed the eight Gym Leaders of the games (in counterclockwise order): Drayden, Clay, Cheren, Elesa, Homika, Shizui, Burgh, and Skyla. You can just barely make them out in the bottom right corner of the page below. Out of the returning Gym Leaders, only Elesa has new artwork to reflect her dyed black hair and new outfit. It’s currently unknown what happened to Cilan, Chili, Cress, Lenora, and Iris, but they may appear in some capacity like Brycen, who is part of the Pokewood feature. Thanks goes to AAPF for uncovering the scan!

    An additional scan of the guidebook’s type chart shows that Ghost-types aren’t resistant to Bug-type moves anymore. However, this is more than likely an error or misprint, as type effectiveness has never been changed during a generation and this could lead to compatibility issues when connecting to the older DS games. We’ll find out if this is true or not when Black 2 and White 2 are released next Saturday, so be sure to check back!

    The Speed Gamers are a charity organization that plays video games to raise money for various causes. To date, they have raised almost $310,000 for nearly 20 different charities. And once again, they will be holding a Pokemon marathon to catch ’em all!

    From today until next Friday, they will be trying to capture every Pokemon from Bulbasaur to Kyurem in an attempt to raise $50,000. Every penny of the proceeds will go to ACT Today!, or Autism Care and Treatment, which gives grant money to families that cannot afford or access the treatments their autistic children need. You can watch a live video stream of their Pokemon marathon below and donate here if you wish.

    TPCi has just announced that the 2012-2013 season will be in the Black & White-on format. Also announced is that the 2013 season will start on July 9th rather in September so that players can start working toward earning points for the upcoming year. However, the typical set rotation won’t take place until September 1st to avoid confusion.

    Changes to the Play! Pokémon Modified format for the 2013 tournament season have been announced.

    Effective: 9/1/2012

    In the interest of maintaining a healthy tournament environment, Pokémon Organized Play removes older sets from the Modified format at the beginning of each new tournament season. Each rotation challenges existing players to create new strategies while enabling new players to get into Organized Play with a minimal investment.

    The 2013 season will be starting on July 9th so that players can get an early start on working towards the 2013 Pokémon World Championships, but in order to avoid confusion we will rotate sets on the more familiar date of September 1st.

    The 2012 Pokémon World Championships being held on August 10th–12th in Waikoloa, Hawaii, will use the 2012 format and rules as are currently listed.

    The official Pokemon Card website has fully revealed Crystal Wall and Crystal Edge from BW6 Cold Flare and Freeze Bolt; both cards feature a new game mechanic label called “ACE SPEC” which prevents you from putting more than one copy of any ACE SPEC card in your deck.

    Update (11:45 PM) – Added a seventh page below featuring new Trainer cards from BW6 with brand new game mechanics. | Thanks goes to our beyond-talented site artist, Xous, for another beautiful banner! :)

    June’s CoroCoro magazine has leaked on to the Internet a few days early, revealing the last promotional tidbits for Black 2 and White 2 before their release date next Saturday. Click the thumbnails below for larger scans.

    June CoroCoro June CoroCoro June CoroCoro June CoroCoro June CoroCoro June CoroCoro

    Page 1

    • Elesa has dyed her hair black and her gym resembles a fashion show, as seen in the animated B2W2 promotional trailer. She now has a Flaaffy on her team.
    • The old Team Plasma will run into the new Team Plasma (the Plasma members from the animated trailer).

    Page 2

    • You earn medals when you connect with other players and complete Fez missions (Fes Missions are like the Entralink missions in BW).
    • Black 2 has a cave location with water while White 2 has a cave location with lava.
    • Black City and White Forest are back, though their designs look different.

    Page 3

    • The Buneary and Magby lines will be exclusive to Black 2 while the Skitty and Elekid lines will be exclusive to White 2.
    • Black Kyurem has Zekrom’s ability, Teravolt, while White Kyurem has Reshiram’s ability, Turboblaze.
    • Poke Transfer returns so that you can import your Pokemon from Generation IV games.

    Page 4

    • A new item, Reflecting Mirror, can change Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus between their formes.
    • Their new formes have different abilities: Tornadus’ is Regenerator, Thundurus’ is Volt Absorb, and Landorus’ is Intimidate.
    • Porygon can be caught in Pokemon Dream Radar.
    • You can also obtain items in Pokemon Dream Radar, such as Thunderstone, and transfer them over to B2W2.

    Page 5

    • Keldeo can change to its Resolution Forme when you take it to a forest outside Sangi Town, a new location in B2W2. You will need Virizion, Cobalion, and Terrakion present in order to change it. It is implied that Keldeo will need to know Secret Sword first.
    • A special Piplup will be given away over Wi-Fi to B2W2 players from July 20th to August 9th. It will know Sing.
    • There will be a Meloetta distribution from July 14th to September 30th, though it isn’t stated if it will be over Wi-Fi.
    • If you take Meloetta to the cafe in Castelia City, you can get a special Fez Mission where you have to search Unova for Berries in 3 minutes.

    Page 6

    • Just a new poster for the Kyurem vs the Sacred Swordsman – Keldeo movie featuring Keldeo’s Resolution Forme. It highlights the new ribbons sprouting out of Keldeo’s mane and the Musketeer Trio using their Sacred Sword attacks.

    Page 7

    Crystal Wall and Crystal Edge from BW6 Cold Flare and Freeze Bolt

    • Two new Trainers will debut in BW6 Cold Flare and Freeze Bolt named Crystal Wall and Crystal Edge; they are specially designed for use with either Black Kyurem-EX or White Kyurem-EX. The cards are too small to read, but judging by the magazine’s description of them, Crystal Wall attaches to Black Kyurem-EX and boosts its HP to 300 while Crystal Edge attaches to White Kyurem-EX and allows its attacks to do 50 more damage. The cards seem to involve a new mechanic – they have different templates than regular Trainer cards and also appear to have special clauses on the right side of their borders. I wonder what their drawback will be, if any. We’ll bring more once a clearer scan emerges, so stay tuned!

    Also, earlier today, a product sheet leaked for an official Pokedex guidebook that will be released in Japan on August 11th. Its description states that it will feature information on all 649 Pokemon, specifically mentioning Keldeo, Meloetta, and Genesect. Genesect has not been revealed by Gamefreak or Nintendo yet, so this product sheet mentioning Genesect seems to mean that the Paleozoic Pokemon will be revealed before August 11th. Whether or not this is an oversight or error remains to be seen, but if it’s true, we’ll be getting Genesect a lot earlier than we expected!

    The front page of CoroCoro magazine has leaked several days early, revealing Keldeo’s Resolution Forme. The design doesn’t appear to be radically different than regular Keldeo: its horn is now longer, blue, and resembles a drill and there are now three green, yellow, and blue extensions sprouting from its mane. We’ll have to wait for the rest of CoroCoro to leak within the next few days before we can see the rest of the design, so stay tuned!

    Friday - June 8th, 2012 @ 11 PM PST -  By: Water Pokémon Master

    If you remember back to before Black and White came out, no one had a clue what typings Reshiram and Zekrom would be. Shokotan, the host of Pokemon Smash and a lover of Electric-type Pokemon, accidentally posted on her blog that she loved Electric types and for that reason, she loved Zekrom. Thus, she inadvertently spilled that Zekrom would be an Electric-type before it was revealed by anyone. After posting it, she realized her mistake and immediately removed the information.

    Shokotan has done it once again, though if she keeps “accidentally” spilling things, we’re going to start wondering if she’s actually doing it on purpose! Shokotan will be voicing Keldeo in the upcoming Kyurem vs. the Sacred Swordsman movie. While reading her blog today, we were able to catch her stating the following (thanks goes to Gin for the translation). Of course, she has now deleted the sentences from her post.

    Keldeo’s Resolution Forme is a must-see. Keldeo doesn’t cry out much but he will in the instant he becomes Resolution Forme!!! I ad-libbed my own kind of scream, which you can go see at the theater! Wow, already 6 years in a row… [voicing characters in Pokemon movies].

    Keldeo’s Resolution Forme will most likely be revealed in CoroCoro magazine next week. Judging by what she says about it crying out more in its Resolution Forme, it’s probably more confident and powerful (like Shaymin Land Forme -> Shaymin Sky Forme in the 11th movie).
