Well, I assume this is fairly recent, but the official Japanese website has a bunch of stuff that has been recently added, including cleaned-up/clearer screenshots of stuff from the CoroCoro update, including a much clearer look at the map of Isshu, and looks at many of the new features (including total confirmation of there being a weather indicator in-battle). There's info about Hiun City, the Pokedex, and some of the new features (though I can't read Japanese, so I can't say for sure just what it says).

Anyway, the link is http://www.pokemon-sp.jp/series/bw/#/index.html. (mods, sorry if this belongs in an already-existing topic or a dupe.)

The Isshu map looks a heck of a lot better, and I can see some better details in it..still hoping for more D:

Everything looks the same as in the leaks though.

This is a pretty good find. The images in higher quality show way more of the Pokemon's features. I still don't like them, but at least I don't completely hate them now.. XD;

Also, the battle images are kinda cool - I love the way everything is set out in Black and White. So easy to use. :D

Edit: Has anyone wondered what this (http://www.pokemon-sp.jp/series/bw/connection/connection03.items/resources/connection.web.png) image means yet? (It's also below in the spoiler.)

The ability to upload save files, maybe?

Yeah, that's what I thought. If it is then, wow! Such a great new feature (I can already see cloning prospects x])

It wouldn't suprise me if the image is the GTS e-mail feature in Platinum, Heart Gold and Soul Silver. But hey, it could be a new feature. :)

Oooh, please let there be cloning prospects. I'm neurotic about keeping my Pokémon backed up. XD

Yeah, it's surprisingly simple and it's already being used with Flash Carts.

Once the games are released, there will be a special website that will allow you to upload your save file so that you can play Black and White on the Internet. Once you're done, you can send the save file back to your DS to continue playing. Whether this will allow you to play the games in full, whether there will be limitations, or if it's just for extended content remains to be seen. [ That's from Pokebeach]

Spoiler:(computer won't let me show image?)
i was thinking that it was telling how you could upload your save file to the internet, so you can have more than one, but playing on your computer is cool to ( as long black and white will use wpa2 internet security like the dsi, which hg + ss don't which stinks i can't use the wifi

Hey, I was looking at that website, and I think there's gonna be a Bug-Type gym. On one of the pictures, it shows the male trainer in a room with honey-looking substance-covered walls around it.

Also, at the south east, there's an island. I wonder what that could be?

And at the north eastish, there's a plateau-type building... Maybe that's the place with the E4. Sorry, I forget what it's called, I'm totally spacing right now...

And right above the Pokeball-shaped pond thing, there's two buildings. To me, it reminds me of Reshi-something and Zek-something. I still don't know their names. Directly to the west of that looks like some sort of bridge, like the one they show in a picture that's opening or closing.

I feel like a detective... =)

If you've got an Android, maybe you can try Google Goggles?

I love the new stuff on the website. All of it. I can't wait!

Agreed. I was looking on the page for the player characters and they have some sort of text next to them. It could be names, but since I don't read Japanese... yeah. It'd be nice if we had something more fitting than "Black" and "White" to refer to them by, though.

The text next to the characters reads... DRUMROLL PLEASE...

..."Boy" and "Girl".

Not especially helpful, I'm afraid.

And you would know that because...you can read Japanese? To think they would know we could tell the genders apart...

I can read some Japanese, yes. The three characters next to the boy are "Otokonoko", meaning "boy", and the three next to the girl are "onnanoko", meaning "girl". Technically speaking a more literal translation would be "male child" and "female child", but that's just showing off.

Well, that's disappointing. ...and kind of telling as to what GameFreak thinks of our intelligence... Thanks though.

Thanks for posting this site, OP. It shows clearer images of Zekrom and Reshiram's sprites, they look awesome as I thought.

Hey, I was looking at that website, and I think there's gonna be a Bug-Type gym. On one of the pictures, it shows the male trainer in a room with honey-looking substance-covered walls around it.

I saw that picture on Serebii, but I had no idea what that place would be. It makes sense if it's a gym though.

Edit: If someone could translate this picture: http://www.pokemon-sp.jp/series/bw/#/connection/connection03.html We could finally figure out what the deal is with being able to connect to the computer with this game. :O

In addition to being able to upload your save data it also says there will be some completely new play feature. That should be exciting.

the picture with the DS and the Compluter isn't saying you can play the game online, it's saying you can play "games" (like sill kiddish mini-games i'm guessing) online that will have an affect on your game on the DS

I agree with you there. The thing that inspires me the most about this game is how many new things they're implementing; how they're separating the game from it's predecessors. In other words, they're making all the excitement for the other games(even probably HGSS) look so minimal...
