The Japanese Nintendo Channel uploaded a new B2W2 trailer.

It includes new footage of the games, a hint on Akuroma's identity, and Sacred Beast Tornadus being captured in Dream Radar and sent to the DS games.

I wonder what those medals are for?

I'm pretty excited about this game. Since people go to the pokewood place to watch movies i'm kinda guessing the more popular get then like people would start recognizing u as like a famous actor. but then again, people could play this game and never even go to pokewood. hmmm......of course though my main hope is that we can explore the ice areas and the shadow triad will finally be revealed(its not like we dont know who they r er anything*cough cough* cilan chili cress* cough)

That... would be a very interesting plot twist. :shock:

#354 Posted by moltenix (2483 posts) -

Is it just me or is this going to be one of the best games i'll be getting later this year? :P

I know it's Pokemon so it's automatically super awesome but there doesn't seem to be much else i'm looking forward to this year. This and Assassin's Creed 3 are the only games i'm super hyped about right now.

#355 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4678 posts) -

It better be. It has to keep me busy until the Fall/Holiday season. :P

I'm somewhat more excited about how Pokemon would be like on the 3DS.

EDIT: I just realized that the English version will be released during the Fall. My wallet is crying. :cry:

Are you getting a Wii U or something?

My wallet is so much happier compared to last year. Heck, i'm still waiting on price drops on some of my lower priority items from last year's wishlist.

I'm thinking about it. If I do, I will force myself to buy Batman, Pikmin 3, and Assassin's Creed 3.
I also want to buy Castlevania, Paper Mario, and Luigi's Mansion.

Well, I can see that taking a bite out of your wallet. :P

I ended up picking up my 3DS last year right after E3. Why? Kuz they made games like SM3DL, MK7 and RE:R seem so awesome during E3.

What did I end up playing before the big price cut? Just Ocarina of Time; beat it within a week and 3DS proceeded to collect dust until Starfox which also didn't last too long. Fast forward to holiday season and recent months where some retailers had sales where you could get 3DS' for as low as $120. The worst part is that I haven't even touched the Ambassador games. Some are just downright bad while others are too clunky to play. Actually, I haven't touched my 3DS since April and it'll probably stay that way until Paper Mario or Luigi's Mansion come out.

Anyway, i'm not getting my hands on a Wii U anytime soon after what happened with 3DS. Besides, my PS3 is more than sufficient for enjoying games like Batman and AssCreed. I actually just picked up Arkham City the other day for $20. :P

#360 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4678 posts) -

Yeah, reason why I'm hesitant on buying a Wii U near launch. :P

If only my PC was powerful enough to play multiplats... :(

Rumor alert: According to Serebii, Keldeo may be getting a new form.

If it makes you feel any better, I once ran into a shiny Abra, one of my favorite Pokemon, and you can imagine how that ended. :(

My first shiny was Gastrodon, in Diamond. It took me a year to realize that it was shiny. :x

Does Genesect have an alternate form as well? :roll:

#373 Posted by moltenix (2483 posts) -

I can barely see him, there's too much color and stuff going on in that picture. :P

LOL, maybe every single Pokemon should have an alternate forme. :lol:

#374 Posted by Defy_The_Fallen (621 posts) -

Is there a EU or US release date? When you search 'Black 2' or 'White 2' in the search, it says 'release date: December 31st 2012', and when you click on the games listing it goes back to TBA?

Haven't had the time to check on the games as much as I'd like, but is there any news of a Battle Frontier in black/white 2? I'm thinking about really going all out in white 2 when I get it, like I did in pearl. Finish the pokedex(again) and make a competitive team of my favorite pokemon. The battle frontier adds so much game play to the series and is something I'd really like.

Nothing yet. I'm hoping for a Battle Frontier-type expansion to the Battle Subway.

New Info From Coro Coro Magazine July 2012

sonictrainer

Thanks for the update! I take it that special piplup will only be available to Japan? Unless it's released in the future for Europe and US.

#382 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4678 posts) -

It's disappointing that Fes Missions do not support online, but local multiplayer is a thing in Japan so I should have expected it.

I hope the new Black City and White Forest are more useful. And if they are, they better not disappear if I take a long break from Pokemon. :x

You will receive a special Fes Mission in Castelia City if you show a person Meloetta. This mission, A Great Berry Search Adventure, has you search for Berries in Unova. It lasts 3 minutes.

BERRY PLANTATIONS IN UNOVA CONFIRMED?!?!?! :shock:

Pokemon finally gets an achievement system. :shock:

There are over 200 medals to collect, for achieving various bits of the game, and you can decorate your Trainer Card with them. These medals also give you a title given by someone. The medals are unlocked through a variety of things such as catching Pokémon, having a certain amount of battles and so on.

This looks very nice to me. Something to keep me going and playing. Black and white bored me to be honest.

Aww man, i'm not sure which version to get. They both look so cool. It also looks like they'll be a bit more replay value this time around.

Nintendo Power gave it a 9.
Destructoid gave it a 8.
EGM gave it a 8.

Lookin' good. :o
I'll wait for more reviews. I don't usually buy spin-off games, but this one may be the exception.

I think most people have not been keeping track of this game. There's barely any hype and it's coming out in 2 days. I blame B2W2 for hogging the spotlight. :P
