Reshiram and Zekrom’s Type; Games Enhanced for DSi; Zoroark’s English Name

Update (4:30 PM, Saturday): Pokemon Sunday just aired and revealed Reshiram and Zekrom in full. However, they did not reveal any new information.

“At least 150, but more to see! To be a Pokemon Master is my… destinnnny!” [Nostalgia!] So we have now reached the 500 mark after 14 years! 493 + Zoroark + Zorua + Tsutaaja + Pokabu + Mijumaru + Reshiram + Zekrom = 500 Pokemon! How exciting! And so many of us know all of their names… crazy.

The Daisuki Club on the official Japanese Pokemon website is now calling Reshiram and Zekrom the “Legendary Dragon Pokemon,” meaning they will at least be part Dragon-type like Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. Their second type, if any, is not yet known at this time.

Larger versions of Black and White‘s box art have been released, revealing that both games will have enhanced features for the Nintendo DSi (click the thumbnail below for a larger image). If you look at the bottom right of each box, you will see their game code. The first part of the code – “TWL” – is Nintendo’s way of denoting that the games are enhanced for the DSi. Most DS games are labeled “NTR,” meaning there is no difference in their features when playing them on the first DS, the DS Lite, or the DSi. So, what will these enhanced features be? Well, we don’t know yet obviously!

Additionally, the Daisuki Club sent out an e-mail to its members stating some basic factoids about the version differences between the two games; thanks go to Yaminokame for translating it below! What could the bold statement be referring to?

Other than how to meet the legendary Pokemon Reshiram and Zekrom, things like encountered Pokemon and Pokemon encounter rates differ between the two versions! You can enjoy trading Pokemon that only appear in one version by using the local wireless and Wi-Fi connections with your family, friends, and players from all over the country! There is another big version difference as well, which we will reveal later! We’ll keep showing you detailed information on the Pokemon Daisuki Club website! Don’t miss it!!

And last but not least, was registered back in late February and now redirects to This pretty much confirms that Zoroark will keep its Japanese name for the English games. Like Manaphy, Darkrai, Reshiram, and Zekrom, special or popular Pokemon are always made into .com’s and redirected to the English Pokemon website.
