Pokémon Black & White 2 Details From June CoroCoro
This months edition of Japanese magazine CoroCoro
has finally leaked and brought with it some interesting details to do with Pokémon Black 2
and Pokémon White 2
. The details and scans are as follows, but keep checking back as the scans are still being translated and we may have more details to come. This is likely the bulk of it though:
The first scan reveals that the Poké Transfer will be making a return so trainers can once again trade Pokémon to their new games from past games, such as Pokémon Diamond
and Pokémon Pearl
for example. The scan also reveals some interesting version exclusives. Gamers wanting the Buneay, or Magby line without trading will have to pick-up Pokémon Black 2
, while gamers wanting the Elekid and Skitty line will have to pick-up Pokémon White 2
. The scan lastly goes on to confirm the abilities of Black Kyurem and White Kyurem. Black Kyurem has the ability Teravolt, while White Kyurem has the ability Turboblaze.
The second scan details some version exclusive areas between the two games as well as confirming Black City and White Forest will make a return, but with a redesign. The new areas for the two games are a cave filled with water for Pokémon Black 2
, while Pokémon White 2
will see the same cave but filled with magma.
The third scan shows the new design of Nimbasa City Gym Leader, Elease. It also confirms the Gym Leader now has a Flaaffy on her team and that her Gym has become a bit of a fashion show. The rest of the scan seems to detail that Team Plasma are currently split into two groups; the new Team Plasma and the old. During the course of the story it seems the two will run into each other.
The fourth scan gives us a better look at Keldeo in its new Resolution form and details that in order for Keldeo to change into this forme in the games you must take it along with Virizion, Cobalion and Terrakion to the forest near Sangi Town. It seems Keldeo must also know Secret Sword in order to change. The rest of the scan goes on to detail that Meloetta unlocks some kind of special mission in the two games when take to the cafe in Castelia City where it also changes form, it also says that a special Piplup knowing the move Sing will be given over Wi-Fi in Japan from the 20th of July until the 9th of August. The event is likely to celebrate the return of Piplup in the Pokémon Best Wishes: 2
anime series and will be the first event for the two new games.
The fifth scan is mostly details to do with the Pokémon Dream Radar
app heading to the 3DS to tie-in with the release of Pokémon Black 2
and Pokémon White 2
. The details confirm that players will also be able to obtain rare items such as Thunderstones through the app which can then be sent over to the main-series games. The scan also confirms just how Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus will change form. To change their form you must use a special item called Reflecting Mirror, however you must have first caught the new formes in the Dream Radar meaning the item likely won't work on Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus if they were caught within Pokémon Black
and Pokémon White
. The scan goes on to confirm you will be able to catch the rare Pokémon Porygon through the app.
The last scan details the abilities Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus will have in their new forms. Tornadus will have the ability Regenerator. Thundurus will have Volt Absorb. Landorus will have Intimidate.
That's all for now, but keep checking back in case more details are translated, if not we can hope for a new trailer on Japanese TV show Pokémon Smash
