Pokémon Black & White 2 Begin In The New Aspertia City

By Ishaan . May 15, 2012 . 8:03am

Nintendo have begun to release details about the English versions of Pokémon Black/White 2. As previously reported, Black/White 2 begin two years after the events of the original Pokémon Black/White, during which the Unova region has undergone some changes.


For starters, Black/White 2 begin in the new Aspertia City, pictured to the right and below.



Bianca from the first game is the one that gives you your Pokémon this time around. As you go on your adventure, you’ll get to find out why the Unova region has changed since Team Plasma’s defeat in the original games.


Recently, Japan’s CoroCoro magazine also revealed other details of the game, like the World Tournament, where you’ll get to fight older Gym leaders like Brock, Misty, Blue, Giovanni and others. You can find those details here.


Pokémon Black 2 will come with Black Kyurem as its exclusive signature legendary, while Pokémon White 2 will have White Kyurem. Black Kyurem’s signature move is Freeze Shock, while White Kyurem knows Ice Burn. Both are Ice-type moves.


Pokémon Black/White 2 will be released sometime this fall for the Nintendo DS. Below, you can find some additional screens from the Japanese version, too.

  • Are all the old gym leaders coming back, or just some? It seems to me that featuring so many Kanto gym leaders and so few of those from any other region is a bit unfair…

    Johto had awesome gym leaders, and I really hope to see Falkner and Morty return, as well as Will if the Elite Four is apparently counted.

    Too bad I feel the urge to get Black 2 just so it matches my original Black Version. White Kyurem appeals to me more, but the thought of having my games not matching on my shelf… *sigh*

    Still, this is looking to be even better than BW, and I like the fanservice for long-time fans that is being included. ^_^

    • boundries_san

      Well, i already see Eirika there and Koga’s daughter…(Damn forget her name)

      So i won’t believe that Falkner which is quite cool for me won’t showing up here.

      Keep up ur hope.^^

  • usagi_san

    This game probably picked up a few more sales just from the mention of the World Tournament alone.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Delicious Bell hands me my starter Pokemon? <3 Day one import for me

  • must own

  • Handsome Luigi ♢

    Green/Blue/Gary: Black right? Your rival is the 1st gym leader? Pfft! Your rivals are all losers compared to me and my team!
    Black: … (¬_¬ ?)
    Red: … (-.- … ¬_¬ *nods*)

    … All of my want.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      New Rival appears: Feel my rage Bro!!
      Me: I umm  I don’t want to feel your rage 

    • puchinri

      Heh. I love that.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    >:) I’m pumped Since I picked Samurott*Navi* last time Idk who to start with this time hmmmm *thinking* . And they could gave the older gym leaders a new look

  • Lt. Surge AND Blaine?! I need this game yesterday.

  • Reno Evangelista

    RobotGodzilla!Tyranitar fight. Better be playable.

    If it is, is this like the first time ever you could use a Pokemon to fight something that wasn’t another Pokemon? No, Cubone’s silly dead mother doesn’t count.

    • AuraGuyChris

      I’m ready to do some cheesy lines and bring my Lucario to defeat evil.

      Actually, it works! He’s got a mask-looking pattern. Hero material, I’d say.

    • Jacob Denton

      I love the Tyranibot. It looks like the Mecha-Groudon.

  • puchinri

    Oh, man. For a while, I wasn’t excited about this anymore and told myself that I don’t want it.
    . . .Except now I do want it! And I know that I’ll just <i?have to buy it! And yet, I am now perfectly okay with this. The money shall simply come from another game. ;u;

  • Anime10121

    GOD I hope Sabrina is in this game, she was one of the most awesome Gym Leaders from the original Games! Although Giovanni, Misty, and Brock, were awesome too, they have already been confirmed to be back:P

    Need more this!

    •  I would think that she is considering that Blaine, Erika, Blue, Misty, Lt. Surge, etc. are shown in the screenshots.

    • Christopher Nunes

      I kinda prefer Sabrina in her Fire Red/Leaf Green version design better than her Heart Gold/Soul Silver version. Well actually I prefer Sabrina with long hair, it seems more her.

      • Anime10121

        Yeah me too, those were just the first game related pics I found:)

      • LynxAmali

        Special Sabrina is best Sabrina.

        What? I have a thing for evil psychics.

      • Give Sabrina a whip and she’s already a dominatrix.

        I also love her FR/LG version, but her new look is great as well.

        Anyone remember her Stadium 2 design? Liked that one too.

        • Christopher Nunes

          I’m not into S&M play… ^^;

          I like her FR/LG design because she looks like a quiet and distance, but at the same time underneath it all she’s a socially awkward, but sweet and caring girl that I like to get to know better.

          •  True, but in terms of who to get to know better, I’d rather pick the HG/SS Sabrina. She looks like she came a long way from her past anti-social nature and her “less than vocal” disposition. Sure, she’s still tough and cuts no slack, but you can tell she grew into a woman.

            And above all else, LOOK AT THOSE BRACELETS. You can’t say that those huge bracelets do no look like limiters. If you’ve understood your chaotic psychic abilities to the point of limiting them, only to release them when necessary, you know you took a level in badass.

          • komiko12

            I like it when Sabrina’s hands glow green in HGSS. It’s like she can fight herself when all of her Pokemon are out.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I agree… she came a long way, kinda wish her hair was longer in her HG/SS appearance.

  • Eh. All these new Pokemon are lame. I’m just waiting for Pokemon ‘Super Fire Red’ and ‘Mega Leaf Green’.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      so you like the first gen of Pokemon only you must be a hardcore fan  

  • Oi! Giant Robot Pokeman! wherez me giant robot car!? Mekboyz!

    ‘a orkier version of the Megas appears.’

    Humie Translation Robot: oh dear god, they make a ork version of the Megas from Megas XLR!

  • hongisfire

    Bianca is so moe, Hope we can see hilda/bert soon. don’t care about elesa or skyla thought. :3

  • Christopher Nunes

    Day 1 purchase for me! And both versions to boot to! I already have both Black and White versions so the sequel to both of them is the only way to go!

  • Placido

    Awesome! I want this game so bad. Well, mainly because of N, but it still looks really fun!

  • Solomon_Kano

    There’s a mecha Tyranitar.


  • Solomon_Kano

    There’s a mecha Tyranitar.


  • Merulana

    Mecha Tyranitar?

    World Tournament?
    First day purchase.

  • rurin

    The bottom two screens look pretty interesting…

  • Elemiel

     I hope the PCs from the first game appear. :<

  • Devin Dunton

    The last two pertain to “Pokewood” the newest installment of the “talent” portion of the Pokemon games, I think it looks way funner than the musicals

  • I like the “Super Sentai” like screens at the bottom! Yeah, reminds me of Sentai.

    •  … and then I realized that if they made a Pokémon-meets-Super Sentai game, you would basically have to strap me down to keep me from it.

      • A Pokemon/Sentai crossover would be epic. Give each member a pokemon, like, for this example, let’s use Gokaigers, Gokai red gets a typhlosion, Green gets meganium, etc.

  • thundergodCN

    robotic pokemon…must be team rocket trio

  • WingsOfEternity

    Shut up and take my money

  • YoshEE

    Aw Blue only have 3 pokemon in the tournment. And I was hoping for 6 on 6 :(

  • Ridho Siregar

    World Tournament?? Please please oh PLEASE… Get Red to compete there too!! We have Blue, Misty, Brock, but it won’t complete without RED!! Gen.I FTW!!!

    P.S.: Don’t want to get in debate with you all, I like younger generations too.

  • Göran Isacson

    I wonder- if I played this before the first Black and White, would I be completely lost or would I be able to understand the story well enough?

    PFFFHAHAHA I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Pokemon losing it’s audience with complicated plot = not likely.

  • I JUST realized Pokewood is like Hollywood. >facehoof<
