Nintendo of America just put out an English teaser trailer for Pokémon Black/White 2. It doesn’t show much, but does reveal that Poison-type Gym leader, Homika, is called Roxie in the English version. Watch it below:

  • Roxie? I would’ve thought that they’d save that name for a future Rock-type gym leader or Elite Four member. Although, it does seem to fit her, oddly enough.

    I think Ivy would’ve been cool, though. Like poison ivy.

    • Herok♞

      I would save that for a grass gym leader with a ivysaur.

    •  Well, we’ve already had Roxanne in Gen III…

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World


  • SirRichard

    Roxie fits pretty well for a hard rocker, but this trailer was brief, wasn’t it? Came in, showed us some very quick flashes of the game with English text and then away again.

    • Ben Sylvia

      Well they ARE coming out  in Japan on Saturday (and some people already have it).  Any and all information regarding new content will be up on the internet by Monday, excluding English names of course.

      They probably realize this.

    Roxie is a polarizing name for me. It certainly isn’t a bad name; it just reminds me too much of Roxanne from RSE, who was pretty much Homika/Roxie’s polar opposite.

    “It´s funny cause she has a guitar! Hurr hurr”

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Roxie…… I seen that coming 

  • I still don’t like that name… but it isn’t the worst name ever… I’ll get used to it. I still love Roxie she is so cute.

    • komiko12

      Yeah, Homika grew on me. That name has a certain charm. :D

      • MrRobbyM

        I like it leagues better too. I’ll be calling her that either way.

    • MrRobbyM

      Roxie sounds really generic for a girl with a guitar. Meh.

  • Devin Dunton

     The first thing I saw was “Roxie” and was all ‘Another rock gym leader?!’ If there was another rock gym leader, they’d better not be first again…

  • NorthernPatches

    -Is male-

    “Are you a boy or a girl?”

    -Choose girl-


    • LynxAmali

      I blame Crystal.

      Kris > Gold.

      At least, IMO.

      • MrRobbyM

        I agree. If only because of her awesome gravity-defying hair. Her sprite was also cool. I chose her the first time I played through Crystal when I was a youngin.

    • MrRobbyM

      You know, I wish they’d change “Are you a boy or a girl?” to “Who would you like to play as?”

      Just because I’m a boy doesn’t mean I should be obligated to play as a male character ._.

  • Revorse

    Wait a sec.. Didn’t the first black and white have the opposite color as their legendary? Why don’t these?

    • Elemiel

      The MCs in these games are getting the legendary that N had in the prequels. So if you played Black and got Reshiram, your going to get Zekrom.

  • I WILL catch them all! >_<

    Also, both Homika and Roxie sound good to me =^_^=

  • kfrye

    My friend and I have come to the consensus that the previous protagonists are dead lol. 

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      or in ice

      • kfrye

        Lol. That too. Either way those kids are gone…

        • ShawnOtakuSomething

          sadly or they might be with N who ones

  • Homika is named after the Strychnos nux-vomica tree.
    I guess the name Vomica was a little too repulsive for NoA’s taste.
