‘CoroCoro’ Leaks – New B2W2, Anime, and TCG Info!

CoroCoro has leaked early once again, revealing a plethora of Black 2 and White 2 information, Best Wishes 2 information, and even new Black Kyurem-EX and White Kyurem EX-cards! We’re still in the process of translating and organizing the information below, so please stay tuned!

1st Scan

  • Cheren is now a Normal-type Gym Leader, replacing Lenora and giving out the Basic Badge. He is the first Gym Leader while Homika, the Poison-type Gym Leader with the guitar, is the second. (Some of this info comes from the 6th scan.)
  • Bianca gives you your Starter Pokemon on behalf of Professor Juniper. She is now Juniper’s assistant.
  • N has disappeared and nobody knows where he is, including Team Plasma. Team Plasma and the Sages will still be in the game, though in what capacity we do not know yet.
  • Alder appears at the beginning of the game and asks you to come with him.

2nd Scan

  • PokeWood (Pokemon+Hollywood) will apparently involve filming a movie: you pick a scenario, then fight in several Pokemon battles. Perhaps battling against the mecha Tyranitar is how you film part of your movie.
  • Brycen, the Ice-type Gym Leader, has starred in PokeWood movies before.
  • PokeWood will also be featured in the anime on June 7th – we see a screenshot of the mecha Tyranitar battling a Golurk. I bet this will be Luke’s evolved Golett since we’ve seen him making movies in various episodes of the show. Guess they were foreshadowing this for a while without us knowing!

3rd Scan

  • The old designs of the Cloud Trio will now be referred to as their “Incarnation Formes” while the new designs will be called their “Sacred Beast Formes.”
  • All three of the Pokemon keep their same types in their new formes, but their stats are different. Tornadus’ new forme focuses on Defense, Special Defense, and Speed, Thundurus’ focuses on Special Attack, and Landorus’ focuses on Attack.
  • (This isn’t stated in the magazine.) Fan speculation on our forums is that the three new formes are inspired by Aztec legend. Tornadus is Huitzilopochtli, who after it died became a green and purple hummingbird, Thundurus is Quetzalcoatl, who after it died became a serpent, and Landorus is Tezcatlipoca / Tepeyollotl, a jaguar. In the Pokemon AR Searcher screenshot on the left side of the 3rd scan and in the anime poster on the right side of the 7th scan, you can see each of them resembling those animals (a bird, a snake, and a jaguar).
  • Professor Burnett will be the name of the professor in the Pokemon AR Searcher game.

4th Scan

  • As stated yesterday, the “World Tournament” feature allows you to battle past Gym Leaders and Elite Four Champions.
  • So far, Cynthia, Green (Gary), Brock, Misty, Lt. Surge, Erika, Janine, Blaine, Giovanni, Volkner, Steven Stone, and Lance are confirmed participants.

5th / 6th Scan

  • As we knew already, Meloetta will be the Pokemon you can download at the movie theaters when you go to see Kyurem vs. the Sacred Swordsman – Keldeo. It is at Level 15, knows Quick Attack, Confusion, and Round, and comes holding a PP Max.

7th Scan

  • The anime will be renamed Best Wishes Season 2 starting June 21st. There will be an arc featuring the new Sacred Beast formes as well as the return of Dawn, Cynthia, and Pokemon from past generations! Giovanni will return as well and Team Rocket will have a new plan involving Meloetta.
