(DS) Pokemon Black and White Versions 2 (E)
Role-Playing, Console-style RPG
* RELEASE DATE:
Oct 7, 2012
Pokémon Black Version 2 (Japanese: ポケットモンスター ブラック ２ Pocket Monsters Black 2) and Pokémon White Version 2 (Japanese: ポケットモンスター ホワイト ２ Pocket Monsters White 2) are the second paired versions of Generation V and are the sequels of Pokémon Black and White, respectively.
Both games were revealed on Pokémon Smash! by Junichi Masuda, and subsequently the official Japanese and international Pokémon websites, on February 26, 2012. They were released in Japan on June 23, 2012, and in North America on October 7, 2012. They are scheduled to be released in Australia on October 11, 2012 and in Europe on October 12, 2012.
The games feature two new formes of Kyurem that serve as the version mascots of the games: Black Kyurem (Japanese: ブラックキュレム) for Black 2 and White Kyurem (Japanese: ホワイトキュレム) for White 2.
The games take place two years after the events of Pokémon Black and White. The Unova region appears to have changed significantly. New locations are accessible in the southwest and northeast of the region, one of them being Aspertia City, the player's new hometown, while a few previously existing locations such as Challenger's Cave are not accessible anymore. New Gyms and Gym Leaders are also introduced, and the Unova Pokédex is expanded to include Pokémon foreign to the region, much like in Pokémon Platinum.
The player is able to choose to play as the boy Nate, or the girl Rosa, as they travel across the region against their rival, Hugh.
