Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

On the official site:

http://www.pokemon.co.jp/ex/b2w2/

Takes a bit to load, but hey!

THINGS WE CAN LEARN:

- season effect when walking in at least one route
- no follow-me feature
- rival likes speaking to what appears to be the criminal team. If it's plasma they're dressing differently. Speaking in electric-gym city place?
- there is a stage/show thing with the prof walking up to greet/battle you...? Large crowd.
- underwater tunnels look cool
- that building with the man and mech/pokemon thing is a new thing in the game... a show or movie or something?
- Minncino gets an encountrable in-game event?
- lilypads gimmick of water gym
- pelliper line and absol encounterable as double battle.
- trainers have animated sprites

Trainer animation for the non-special! However there's definitely no sign of the follow me feature, which I expected (but was hoping for). This makes me so much more excited now!!!!

The building definitely makes out to be a movie type thing. I wonder what the professor/protagonist was doing walking on what seemed to be a stage? But definitely some great footage, even the battle scene looks updated and amazing!

*replays trailer*

No follow me feature makes me sad :<

But everything else looks awesome! Really excited to see more. I wonder if those guys blocking the protagonists way are a new villainous team?

      To me, the whole game looks like it's in a completely new region but most likely that this happened somewhat years in the future?

      It's been confirmed this is in Unova two years after BW events, and starts in a different part of Unova too.

      I wonder what is the deal with the audience and stuff with the trainer and professor? And the show/movie?

      Now, what is all that dialogue talking about?

      - Following feature - arbitrarily in the remakes only, I'm guessing.
      - He's speaking cockily to them. Maybe he has no affiliations with them after all.
      - Isn't that the underwater tunnel from the screenshot?

      Keldeo isn't even implemented as a special event in B/W. You get a small bonus for bringing it into B/W, but there's nothing really special about it. (We'll be lucky if we can get one as a Mystery Gift, though.)

      I totally called it. This scientist dude is "mysterious". Maybe he really is evil!
      Or maybe he's a recurring figure like Eusine is.

      Anyone else notice the grassy field/new HP bar? I'm loving it! The trailer has me going crazy over these games.

      Looks like we will be seeing Eevee out in the wild AND it looks like we get to be movie stars? :o
      Thanks for sharing that by the way!

      P.S. I can see A LOT of green behind the ice, so it's definitely just hiding the rest of the map and not actually Unova frozen.


      EDIT: Naw I didn't even notice that Kaori, but it looks really good! Love dat GUI.

        They do have a built in event in the Moor of Iccirus when you bring it and the others of the Trio.

        There were other events for the others, though the actual way to get them was never disclosed, none were item events so I'm sure the hackers just couldn't find it.

        My surprise was more towards, I thought Keldeo's movie would be before B2W2's release and remember seeing something about the Keldeo event being for BW before today, but now its B2W2 event.

        I don't think I've been this excited for a Pokemon game since.... Well I've never been this excited for a Pokemon game. I was very impressed at how much detail they put into B/W but after seeing this I think I might need to get a 3DS just to fully enjoy it.

        Any news on the version specifics yet?

        @Above - Nope, no specifics yet. All we know on exclusives are that Black Kyurem will be in Black 2 and White Kyurem will be in White 2.

        For those who don't want to deal with loading the official site, a Youtube video is up with the trailer.

        I think I like the little touches added to the battle screens, too I also noticed that the text box for battles have been given a revamp and now no longer has anything red in it.

        It now looks a bit too detailed for some reason. Maybe it's because we're used to smear-o-vision backgrounds since Gen IV

        Don't really like that italic bar. I'm fine with the grass itself, but the HP bar will take a while to get used to it. XD;

        Anyway, everything else that the trailer showed? Awesome. :3

        I'm calling it, the protags are celebrities after saving the world 2 years ago (assuming it is the same characters, as they have a striking resemblance). Makes sense why they're on stage with people cheering for them ;3

          If you like at 1:17 of the trailer,
          There's a Kyurem Black/White Form fusion...?

          EDIT: Wait, that's black form kyurem i think....

            Awesome trailer, I didn't expect that they would animate the normal trailers.
            I think the next trailer will show about Team Plasma or a new Team.

              I wonder what the Minccino event thing is? In the trailer at 1.00 where the protagonist approaches in, in what looks to be a forest.

                Don't really remember that "town/city" (red circle) from orginal unova so I think its a newly build town/city. Rock gym maybe ?
                Also I think Unova is a bit more tropical now!

                  That's weird indeed. But maybe they did that because they plan to release another main game later this year. It's easy to guess what kind of main game I mean...

                  Wow, that trailer really has me syked for these games and still looking forward to the gameplay tonight on Smash! The Cinncino event looks interesting and we have animated trainer sprites if anyone noticed. There's so much I could comment about but I won't however on a final note the graphics look slightly enhanced in a good way!



                  I'm really loving the new battle scene & HP Bar.

                    I don't now if anybody's noticed this yet:

                    There seems to be a new location North West of Village Bridge, and some islands North East of Undella Town. Also, I don't remember that boat on the far right pier of Castelia City ever being there...
