Battle Real Life Pokémon Champions In Pokémon Black & White 2

By Ishaan . July 10, 2012 . 5:02pm

As previously reported, Pokémon Black/White 2 have a World Tournament mode that lets you compete against gym leaders and champions from previous games, such as Johto champion, Lance, and characters like Brock, Misty  and Giovanni.


Today, The Pokémon Company shed a little more light on their future plans for this mode. World Tournament battles include single battles, double battles, triple battles and rotational battles, and using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service for the DS, more battles will be made available for the World Tournament mode.


This will be done by selecting top players from the 2012 Pokémon Video Game World Championships and distributing their Pokémon teams over Wi-Fi for World Tournament fight challenges. Further details on this subject will be announced later this year.

    You know what would be cool? If they could make a mode where you build your own Pokemon-trainer, and you can use that avatar to  battle in the championships. That’d be pretty cool.

  • Crevox

    If the AI controls it, then… it’s still easy. They won’t use the proper strategy that was intended with the team.

      I was the telling my friend about this the other day. That’s exactly what the game needs. If the AI suddenly had the programming of switching Pokemon, that alone would make me go ape”poop” about it. It’s something unexpected and new, and challenging. GameFreak needs to think about this!

      • Renaldi Saputra

        yea, otherwise the game won’t be challenging

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Lets hope at least, they can make the a.i smarter here then.^^

      Who knows they can make a ver smart a.i base on pokemon champion here.^^

    • Jungo

      Considering how horribly I’ve been punished by very specific strategies, it’s definitely critical what exactly the AI does. Maybe they’ll have custom AI?

    “Battle Real Life Pokemon…”

    OK, who first thought the article was going to talk about real life Pokemon or more precise real life Pokemon with the 3DS in the real world like the 3DS Pokemon App to capture Pokemon (forgot the name of it).

    That would’ve been cool.

    Anyway this feature sounds cool, the Champion battles I mean, I look forward to the game when it comes out.

  • Code

    Haha I like this idea, I think it’s pretty cool >w<; World Champ getting to be in a game, but also getting to test your teams against them, sure the AI won't be a sharp, but I think it's still a really fun idea owo;

  • Shadowman

    Giovanni that a name I never heard in a long while it will be great to battle him again. I wonder if they will let us battle Team Rocket again?

    • Internet is Crash

      Giovanni, Red, Green, Clair, Whitney, Winona, Steven, all in one game…
