As we all know, CocoCoro is leaking soon with possibly news about the games that we didn't know. This thread is basically to cover everything we hear from CoroCoro, Pokemon Smash, or any other external source - such as the actual Pokemon site. Just remember to post the source with your news.

Your "news" can also include new screenshots of the games or any leaked information in general (where people can discuss what you think they'll mean etc). We'd rather this be a basic news discussion thread such as when/where you think new information will leak and so on than anything specific.

However, if it's announced that Pokemon musicals are completely removed, or that you can now surf in Castelia (anything discussion worthy basically), then they need their own threads. If you're unsure, ask us!

So yeah, from now on just use the announcement reaction thread as it says... a place to react to the announcement of B2/W2. XDhttp://www.pokecommunity.com/images/eventimages/eastereggs/08.png

Enjoy discussing. :)

I hope Coro Coro leaks Monday at the latest. This time of the month is always so painful just waiting for it to leak, and it always feels much more painful knowing that we'll actually be getting our first news on B2/W2 haha!

I'm super pumped! I've been mashing F5 on various Pokemon news sites all day long hoping for the scans.
I caught Pokemon Smash at the last second, but it looks like it was another flop, hahaha.

Bring on the corocoro scans!
Hopefully there'll be a few when I wake up.

I would say "I'm hoping for something mindblowing", but our minds have been blown already with the whole two new games thing instead of one, plus the two forms.

I guess some renovations to a major city would be nice to see, or some battle facilities (I want another use for Anville Town except trading items >.>).

That's what people said earlier on in the thread, deoxys. :x By the way for everyone, if you wanna discuss the Keldeo distribution, do it in the thread for it. This one is fine for box art, though!

Talking of which, I wonder what children will be more likely to buy based on box art, Black 2 imo, since White 2 doesn't really look appealing at all. :(

March 12th, 2012, 08:08 AM
I don't think I can judge the White 2 box art right now, that scan picture isn't the best quality at the bottom. If anything though, White Kyurem's pose looks much more awesome and scary, with it's hand is out like that.

That's what I thought, if it was judging on the box arts I'd say most people would go for Black 2, it looks much neater and generally better. There's just something about the White 2 that doesn't look right, they could have done a better job tbh.

Apparently the uploaded stated that there is no more information on B2W2 in Coro Coro, it is becoming frustrating considering how we've known about these games for over two weeks now and we have no clue what they are about, we must be getting something soon.

The April issue of CoroCoro magazine has begun to leak. The scans include the boxart for Pokémon Black and White 2, featuring Kyurem's newly revealed formes, Black Kyurem and White Kyurem. The magazine also promises that these two games will be an all-new adventure.
I'm pretty sure that CoroCoro said that about Platinum back in 2008, and it just ended up being the same game as Diamond and Pearl, just with added features, still, if it actually IS a new adventure and not just copied and pasted from B/W, then I would like to see some screenshots showing proof of it, as only box art is rather vague...

The leaks for this months CoroCoro have begun, and with it a juicy piece of information that answers what many have been hoping for…

別の色だと思ったか!?
今度は「2」だ!前作とはまったく違う衝撃ストーリーと新機能がキミを待ってるぜ!

“You thought it was just a different colour?
This time it is ’2′, an utterly different story full of impact and new features are waiting for you!”


An all new story. An all new game. Defying Pokémon history for all the right reasons.
...Or maybe not, we will have to see if CoroCoro is telling the truth or is lying so we will all just get the same game as B/W just with extra features...

Guy who uploaded the scans says there are no more bw2 scans. Serebii says the pg100 is most likely meloetta(pg99 is bw2 pg101 is keldeo)

I think the guy who said that is just trolling us so we can waste spend another 30 days speculating on what the games look like, and really, I was VERY hyped to see some screens of the game this month

As Masterge said, they said the same thing for E and Pt...so these might just be third versions...

Yeah. :(
That was really disappointing! Everybody was thinking we were going to get a mess of information seeing as the release date for Japan is very close. I guess they're just being really secretive about the game's information. That or they're trying to make sure it doesn't steal the spotlight from Nobunaga, despite nobody really caring for Nobunaga's Ambition after B2/W2 was announced.

Oh well... There are about two other japanese magazines that have released information on new Pokemon games in the past. They're very unlikely to though, as they usual release information after CoroCoro. I know one of theme is Famitsu, but I can't remember the other one.

For the time being all we have is the main sites and Pokemon Smash. I think once the hype dies down on Nobunaga's Ambition since it's days away from it's release, PokeSmash will start talking about B2/W2 non-stop.

There is also one more scan that's going to be uploaded soon. There's no info as to what is on this last page, but they're slowly being leaked over 2ch.
I'm going to stay on the cautiously optimistic side.

I thought the last page was the info on the movie? So there is still another page after that?

The official website will update on the 15th with the Coro Coro information like it always does Im sure. I am hoping that the official website will somehow reveal extra stuff to us but I doubt it. Probably just the box art like Coro Coro. I think it's pretty obvious they didn't want it to outshine Pokemon + Nobunaga's ambition since it's release is only a few days away.

Ah I see, sorry for misunderstanding, I just woke up and I've yet to sip on some coffee. :<

Their website is evolving!... Nah, but it is a bit curious that they changed the Black/White Kyurem on the site.... Perhaps it means we're nearing some information being released on the official website?

Seriously, GAMEFREAK, we need something. You can't just reveal a new game to us and leave us hanging for a month and a half. :P

I wish Serebii would go ahead and get his issue of CoroCoro so they can finish translating the pages and put up a clearer version of the Overdrive mode page, though I doubt there's any more info to be uncovered on those pages.

Cello
March 15th, 2012, 09:20 AM
Actually I've been wondering why Serebii hasn't reported on the "Overdrive mode" yet, and according to Joe:

That's just how they are, similar to how Reshiram & Zekrom's tails light up. The scans make no mention of an overdrive mode and I am annoyed at that site for spreading this

I sure hope that'll be part of the sprite animations.

FFS, I hate websites like that, and I should have known better than to get all hyped up and believe their information.
Not only did they post false information, but other major websites actually believed them and started spreading the news, making it all the more believable to the fans.

So yeah, "Overdrive mode" is nothing more than part of their animation much like how Reshiram and Zekrom's tail light up.

After looking at it closely and in-depth detail I really like the White 2 Box Art, I guess I was a little too quick to judge.

I hope people aren't judging the games based on the cover.. because it should have the same story from each other, but a different one from B/W, right? But I understand if people say which art or design of the B/W Kyurem looks better. I'm most likely getting White 2 because I prefer Reshiram over Zekrom.

Toshinobu MATSUMIYA, one of the Pokemon game planners in Gamefreak tweeted this:

"As for Pokemon Black 2 White 2, my understanding is many info will be revealed around 15 April. Hoping it will meet your high expectation."

Just like we all expected anyway. Coro Coro will be released April 14, apparently one day earlier than it usually is. Then we have Pokemon Smash on the 15th.

Oh god don't say Shocking XD We'll get another Mewtwo Wifi Event!

IF ANYTHING is shown about the games in next Pokemon Smash, I wanna say it'll be more about the Kyurems of course, and MAYBE a little sneaky peaky at the game's Protagonists~

I mean the game is released in 3 months, 2 Months when April Coro Coro comes out, meaning that there should be some decent info coming in if not in April, then in May, this includes screenies of gameplay, Hints towards story, as well as info on what's the deal with Plasma (If they are the continuing baddies) /Kyurem. Seriously hoping for some Protagonist action.

"During the preview for next week's Pokémon Smash episode, it was revealed that in the episode, there is to be an announcement. The contents of this announcement are not currently known but the wording states that this announcement is something completely new and obviously Pokémon related.

I guess all this anticipation is sort of a good thing. I remind you that these games are coming out in a mere three months in Japan, and about seven elsewhere. We'll have less time to wait, so I hope they won't reveal too much too fast. I'm thinking we'll get something before April.

Once I see some gameplay or pictures, I'm done. I played through White while having very little knowledge about the game and it made the experience so much more enjoyable.

March 24th, 2012, 08:20 PM
Well lack of information, can be interpreted in many ways.

First, they are with holding info to build tension. Double Edged sword as fans start fantasizing wildly and when info is finally released they will either be impressed, passive, or depressed with the info.

Second, there isn't much to tell, which is worse case scenario for us. Not much to tell would mean that we are getting rehashed with an "Updated" story. I believe Platinum was pawned off as a "new story" when it was featured. Still this is worse case scenario and least likely within the minds of most fans.

Finally, Calm before the storm. Most hopeful scenario as of right now. I'm thinking we'll get two major game announcments. First in April on one or two of the key components of the games, and the second in May. Between them, four/five Pokemon Smash episodes to place extra filler of smaller features and release information.


As it is right now we have two major chances for any slight of information. April 14/15th and Next Saturday.

I imagine that's what they're trying to accomplish by holding off showing any information about the game until it's near release, but at the same time what difference does it make? It's up to the player whether or not they want to spoil game information, and it's not like coverage sites like Serebii wont be posting an abundance of information prior to it's release once Coronis or whomever gets their press copy a.k.a the ROM leak. :P

I agree that I don't want to know too much of the game so I can discover it while playing it for myself, but i'd at least like to get a basic plot summary and a couple of screenshots.

I fear that it might be the second...and B2W2 just end up being alternate versions of BW only with Kyurem's formes in it...
And yes Platinum was announced as a new story and I beleive Emerald was too...

I don't think it's that Tretta thing, because didn't they JUST trademark that? The Smash episode that will air with the announcement would have been taped weeks ago, before Pokemon Tretta was trademarked.

Also, Gamefreak Pokemon game planner 'Matsumiya-san' tweeted this about Hoenn being in B2W2:
"As one of Pokemon fans, I feel that it's meaningless to go Housen region in B2W2, even exclude words "Ruby Sapphire" in B2W2 title."

My last post was deleted =C

Basically, I said its possibly movie related. All the Pokemon featured in the Background were in Movies (pointed out by Pokejungle). I also added they were the Center Characters of the movies (Except MAYBE Keldeo). So its most likely a Movie/Event related to a Movie.

It may not be anything to do with the Games at all though.

I think he's talking about B2W2.

I thought it could be Genesect but then I realised that they have only just revealed Keldeo & Meloetta who are in the upcoming 15th movie and unless genesect is secretly in that one then I doubt we'll see him till the 16th movie which will probably be late 2012 or early 2013.

I think B2/W2 might be truly sequels because of mascots' colors exchange, that could mean N's Zekrom/Reshiram from original B/W will be involved in Kyurem's form change and that new form will be caught by player.

So maybe that's why they delay with showing screens because we would recognize new protagonists at first sight and they don't want to let it happen so early.

Since this is a different storyline from BW I guess that introducing new characters would spoil that the storyline is different...but it won't be that big of a spoiler that it'll take two weeks plus to delay info...hopefully it was simply Nobunaga getting in the way and from now on we'll get some solid info...
Maybe the show will introduce the new character instead of Pokemon Tetra (crosses fingers)

If he's referring to that image that was shown at during last weeks Pokemon Smash, I doubt it'll be anything B2/W2 related. :|
If there's another thing indicating something's going to be revealed I may tune in though.

According to the summary it's just a bunch of Anime/Movie stuff, looking over the 15 years of Pokemon Movies/Anime.
ポケモン!きみにきめた! / アニメ「ポケモン」15周年記念スペシャル、松本梨香さんが登場! / 15年間の映画情報 / 懐かしいポケモンたちがお祝いに!

Pokémon! I Choose You! / A Special Celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the 'Pokémon' anime, with an Appearance from Rica Matsumoto! / A Feature of 15 Years Worth of Movies / The Dearly Missed Pokémon Join the Celebration!

Since that image featured art that wasn't Sugimori's I believe it'll just all be anime related.
You never know, though. They may surprise us with something B2/W2, or maybe even say that they might jump into some B2/W2 information in the next episode.

Theres some even more news now, Japanese magazine Famitsu is hinting at a new Pokemon being revealed in its magazine next week. Of course, it could just be a new forme. But could whatever Pokemon Famitsu plans to reveal, be revealed on Pokemon Smash on Sunday? Could it be the announcement they are hyping up that seems to be anime/movie related?

I know that after Keldeo, there were 5 other Pokemon to be revealed for the movie which was revealed at some Pokemon convention which showed 5 unknown Poke Balls relating to the movie. We got the two Kyurem formes and Meloetta, thats three. I guess the 4th could be Meloetta's other forme, but what would the last be?

Amazon Japan has posted imaghes of covers of two cases coming to Japan featuring Black Kyurem & White Kyurem. These cases confirm that the types retain Kyurem's Dragon/Ice type despite the massive changes. It also confirms the height and weight. Black Kyurem stands at 3.3m and 325kg while White Kyurem stands at 3.6m and 325kg. We'll bring more as it comes
Incidentally, Famitsu is hinting about a new Pokémon being revealed next week. Japan often states new forms to be new Pokémon so this could be the reveal in Smash tomorrow

If I had to guess, it'd be Keldeo seeing as it's featured in the new movie, but at the same time that's just a guess.

Maybe since he's the "fourth musketeer" he'll get a more fitting form to that of the other three "musketeers."

Can't wait for more information!

Slightly disturbed about the "A new Pokemon to be revealed" thing. I can't imagine any other Pokemon getting a new form after Kyurem's were revealed...I'm kinda worried we will be getting a new Pokemon added to the game.

It could be similar to Zorua and Zoroark being revealed for the movie before B/W were announced. I don't think they'll be adding more Pokemon to the game, and I'm not totally sure a brand new forme is coming, so it may be that they are adding a new Pokemon to the Kyurem movie or the movie after it. OR it could be the official reveal of Genescet. Maybe?

Maybe it's a sneak peek for Gen 6. Like, say, a pokemon that won't be in B2W2, but will be in the movie. Like Togepi, Munchlax, etc.

Although it's a possibility and with GF's unpredictable moves I don't see that happening for another year, that would be a mystery pokemon until 2014 assuming that's when Gen 6 is released.

I think we will get Genesect at the end of Gen V, releasing another legendary would be too cliché considering we've had Keledo & Meloetta, it's only two but that's enough for now.

Kyurem God Forme! Reshiram and Zekrom did come from it so it had both of them once, not just one or the other like its formes. Oh a musketeer forme for Keldeo, I sort of gave up on that but it really needs it. It looks all small and weak. Or Meoletta, have they revealed it? Or it other forme. :)

But maybe one of those unknown Poke Balls is for Keldeo? Anyway, have you got any source about that convention?

Here:
http://pokemonfigure.blogspot.com.au/2012/02/aou2012-report1-new-pokemon-prize.html

It's not for Keldeo as Keldeo was already revealed. So Im sure one will be Meloetta's other forme, and then who knows what the 5th is? I was wondering why people never spoke about it because I personally thought it was really interesting that theres another Pokemon to be in it that we don't know about. I don't see how Genesect would fit in, so I doubt its that.

Again, late as this was posted earlier in the week but is this true?

"According to the Pokemon fan site Serebii, a big announcement was teased during this past week’s episode. The announcement itself is allegedly not related to any of the previous announcements, making this world-exclusive reveal something entirely new, and not simply more information on the upcoming Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2. What more could The Pokemon Company possibly have up its sleeves?"

Assuming it's for this Pokémon Smash it should be an interesting episode regardless.

Forgot to count Rotom...then again they didn't change it's typings in Platinum so maybe they will change Kyurem's next generation too...

I'm hoping that the "new pokemon" is another Keldeo forme...hopefully Fire/Fighting to complete the five chinese elements Metal, Wood (grass), Earth (rock), Water, and Fire within the trio, plus fire would allow it to take down Kyurem's ice.

(Going off the assumption that it wasn't declared false info my other sites)

Only Kyurem supposedly had a Place holder in the code, so we got Kyurem's new forms already. If another Pokemon was to get a new form, as I just asked, why wasn't that posted with the rumored finding?

he should be today, and it starts at about 8:00 am in Japan and its a 13 hour time difference (just about) in the United States.

but anyway, I think the most we get out of this weeks episode pertaining to BW2 is maybe a re-confirmation of the Types of Kyurem, since they seem to re-confirm stuff a lot.

I don't know if someone posted it before, but I noticed something wrong about that placeholder finding. They said that when something other than sprite changes - typing, stats, abilities, the second column of their list has some value other than zero. Arceus' and Meloetta's typing and Meloetta's stats change between forms but in second column of their list, there is zero value for Arceus and Meloetta. I think it's their mistake or maybe they just wrote zero because their finding is incomplete. If it's incomplete, maybe it means Keldeo also might have some placeholder for new form.

Here no, but the thing was supposedly proven to be false by Serebii and his Rom hackers who could not find the data spoken of at all. That's why I said assuming that finding WAS true, which is a way it sorta was, even though it wasn't.

But ya that was another issue that they did not point out. And Arceus's shouldn't have been incomplete as he was from a previous Generation. The info should have been set.

Smash is still airing. So far they are still celebrating the anniversary, but I'm sure the announcement will come at the end like they always do. I'm mainly watching for the preview of next weeks episode since thats when they are revealing B2/W2 info.

They just showed a mini video of Kyurem in the preview for the next episode and it looked like it was from a video game although it was in 3D.. really can't tell if that was from B2/W2.. I'm not sure what else it could have been from? It looked sick!

They didn't advertise anything B2/W2 related for the next episode.. just the arcade game, and some Battrio stuff. That's odd because the description for the next episode says they are revealing lots of B2/W2 information and I can't imagine them not advertising it? Odd.

The TV Game magazine in Japan has revealed that the episode of Pokémon Smash due to air on April 15th is said to contain a lot of Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 information. This episode is set to air just after the release of CoroCoro so will likely house the same information. However, this teaser also indicates that the cast members of Pokémon Smash will be able to experience the game indicating that footage will be present within the episode. This will follow on from the episode on April 8th which the official site claims will have some Black 2 & White 2 information. We'll bring all the information as and when it comes so be sure to keep checking back..

I'm sure we all expected Smash to reveal news that day because of Coro Coro, but its good to know they will have actual footage of the game!

I'm hoping on the April 8th episode that we will at the very least get a screenshot. Just ONE is all Im asking for!!

Found this on another forum:

Given that the games are coming out in Japan in less than four months, I'm guessing this week's episode of Pokémon Smash will reveal a few minor details about the games and possibly feature some gameplay or a trailer (kind of similar to Gold walking in New Bark Town with Chikorita when HeartGold and SoulSilver were first revealed). The week after that will contain tons of information, naturally.

I hope the April 8th episode of Smash isn't going to troll us! I know that most of the info will be on the April 15th Smash, but they claim to have B2/W2 information on the April 8th episode too... but what will they reveal? They didn't show anything in the preview, but the website does mention there will be B2/W2 information in the episode.

It would be GREAT if we got a screenshot or something. I can't really imagine them just talking about the game and not showing us anything.. all I want is one screenshot! That will help me last until April 15th.

So what we have to look forward to:
-April 8th Smash
-Coro Coro leak somewhere between the two episodes
-April 15th Smash

So were those scans shown earlier fake or real? and if they were real what did they say?

They are real. They say:

"What is the setting?"
"There will surely be new gym leaders?"
"What will happen to the starters?"
"Are Black Kyurem & White Kyurem related to Reshiram & Zekrom's overdrive?"

Although the images on it are from BW not B2 and W2.

Coro Coro is being released on the 14th this time, so we should get leaks earlier than usual hopefully.

I read through. I find it very difficult to believe that anything would leak onto the English-speaking scene first, but I never believe or discount anything without a lot of evidence.

Out of the things they mentioned there, I think that a new region (especially if they keep Unova G/S Style) would be great. I really didn't like Unova, but this should give the game more longevity. New pokemon could be interesting. They risk making it stale if they use the original trio. I'd be interested to see a non-elemental starter trio (maybe fighting, dark, psychic?), if they did keep the original Unova Dex. Overall, there are some very specific rumours there. If it is a lie, it's very elaborate.

I guess we won't know any more for another week or so.

If there's one thing that I've learned from GameFreak these past couple of years, it's that anything is possible. I could definitely see Sinnoh making an appearance in the game, but not the whole region. If anything, it would be like travelling to Johto in rijonAdventures in which only a few areas are accessible.

Well yeah, that's what I was expecting and even though we have Sinnoh in 3D, I'd still love to see Sinnoh again I mean it's been 6 years now and it can potentially look better but I wouldn't be disappointed if it didn't make an appearence and like you said if it did it wouldn't be the full storyline and region.

That's supposed to be the 15th's Smash, not the 8th. I don't think there was a preview for this week's Smash having any news on this matter.

We could have some info, but the 15th for sure we will have Smash info. 14th for us in the states.

No, the 8th Smash is also meant to have news, it says it on the official Smash website under April 8th. Here: http://www.pokemon.co.jp/anime/smash/

It just simply says "and lots of B2/W2 information!".

But the 15th is where Masuda is appearing and actually showing the game.

Oh? None of the big sites say anything about the 8th. Weird.

Serebii mentioned it briefly in an update but thats about it. I think its because they didn't actually show a video preview of it like they usually do which I find odd considering it states "lots of information" will be revealed. I don't think it'll be lots, but I do hope its something good that they reveal.

It doesn't say Lots of Information, it says News Lots of B2W2 which could mean that they'd mention it more or anything.

Actually, it full it says "In addition, the latest news Lots of "Pokemon Black 2 White 2"!"

The latest news obviously means new information since well, there really is no 'latest' news considering nothing about the game has been shown/revealed yet.

Yeah, well we may find out something very important i.e where the games take place or what the plot is about or a new Pokémon which will then be followed by footage in next weeks episode.

To be honest, I can't wait to hear news on April 15th. That's when the real excitement begins.

The Japanese official Pokémon Twitter @pokemon (http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/members/3458.html)_cojp has confirmed B2W2 info in today's Pokémon Smash!

At least that 100% confirms it.

Next week everyone. & We'll get CoroCoro scans within the week. THE FUTURE IS WHAT WE SHALL LOOK FORWARD TO.

Otherwise this Pokémon Smash was a big troll slap in our face. It's okay.

I'm just suspicious about the whole thing now.


Usually main games are revealed in April-May, and then released in September so they have about 6 months of build where they release information, even third versions. However, this game was revealed about 4 months before release and we only have 2 months left until its released and we have NO info on the actual game. Do they plan on fitting 6 months on information into the next 2 months or something? Very suspicious IMO.

I wonder if there really will be any real (significant) news next week...oh well only time will tell...Pokesmash and Gf trolled us yet again...or maybe it was us fooling ourselves to get our own hopes us...

Are they forgetting the game is being released in less than three months?

I know that Coro Coro is going into detail about Kyurem and its formes, so I do hope they leave a significant amount for gameplay too.

Just a few screenshots, plus region confirmation will make me happy!

Next week on Smash at least we will be seeing the game in action. Black/White Kyurem battle, a promotional video (probably the trailer), and Masuda giving a playthrough of the game showing us.

Preview for the next episode of Smash: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrLAfXPckWw

That '?' needs to move out of the way :-P

What I'm most excited about is the playthrough of the game. That's when we'll be able to spot the differences etc first up, and all the assumptions we can make! :3 Don't care at all about the Kyurem battle in comparison. XD

Sadly there may be no news to give. This could very well be the "Third" Game with only a slightly changed Storyline. That could be why there is a lack of news. Absolutely nothing new and they don't want to kill the product before its released.

I can say I was not trolled this week~ I did not expect any relative information, as seen earlier in this thread. There was no hype about this week's Smash anywhere so I did not expect any information.

Are they forgetting the game is being released in less than three months?

See above. There may be no information to give.


Ya I'm a pretty negative guy that can really only see the bad side of things. As I've been saying, Worse case scenario. B2W2 are "Gray" and GF just doesn't want to release any info. Coro Coro wise, I'm not expecting more than a small rehash of Black Kyurem/White Kyurem Art work, Box Art work, and small blurbs about hints to what to expect in the game. I'm not expecting any solid evidence to the game.

We'll get the Kyurems' battle footage on Next Week's Smash....but again...that may be all we get again. Keep expectations low so I can be surprised later.
