Pokémon Black/White 2 will be seeing a major Wi-Fi distribution in Japan from August 11th – September 14th—Genesect, another entirely new Pokémon, said to be born 300 million years ago. Genesect is #300 in the Unova Pokédex.


Genesect will make his anime debut in a new Pokémon movie scheduled to be shown in 2013. No further details are available as of now, but we’ll keep an eye out for more details as they are released.

  • Shadowman

    Looks more machine then pokemon but hey it looks cool.

    • MrRobbyM

      Because it pretty much is. Team Plasma upgraded the cannon on it’s back.

    • Herok♞

       Porygon was a completely artificial pokemon so this isn’t a first.

      • Shadowman

        Ah. I completely forgot about Porygon. Thanks dude.

        • Herok♞

          your welcome if you have more questions or comments, I would be happy to answer/address them.

  • SirRichard

    They’re putting these movies out like clockwork, I swear. How many are we up to now?

    That said, I was wondering when Genesect would finally be released and shown off, he seems like a pretty cool ‘mon.

    • From the anime, the next one features Keldeo making it 15, but this one with Genesect will make it 16. 

  • now everyone will have a chance to get download u-turn’d into oblivion

    • hawk222

      …Come again?

  • Born 300 million years ago but looks like it came from the future. Back to the Future, anyone?

    •  And also, it uses cassettes. Mindscrew.

    • Ben Sylvia

      Pokedex Entries from Black & White.

      Over 300 million years ago, it was feared as the strongest of hunters. It has been modified by Team Plasma.

      This ancient bug Pokémon was altered by Team Plasma. They upgraded the cannon on its back.

      • *facepalm* lol And I call myself a Pokémon fan, for shame. Thanks for that.

      • Anime10121

         So there’s a possibility that the “un” modified Pokemon will appear later on as a “new” Pokemon, much like Mew and Mewtwo?

  • Crevox

    We’ve known about him for a very very long time, but finally nintendo announces him :p

    • Ben Sylvia

       *cough*The Pokemon Company*cough*

      • Crevox


  • MrSirFeatherFang

    That yellow thing next to the cannon looks like a button I just want to slam my fist onto lol

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      *Error Error* Don’t “Fist” the button pliz.^^

      • MrSirFeatherFang

        Your comment made me realize that the button should have been a self-destruct one (I was thinking of it as a “Imma Firin’ mah lazor” type of button)

    • Detrimont

      thats the disc that changes the elemental type genesect’s exclusive move does

      • MrSirFeatherFang

        Oh, I see it now (well since I took a look at it’s back sprite).
        At this angle it looked like a button to me

  • Is that a bug robot…with a cannon?  

  • Clifford Pierre Louis

    Honestly thought this was a mecha for some new series, Gundam/Pokemon crossover lol.

    • ParaChomp

      There are Pokemon models by Bandai (that build similar to their robot counterparts).

  • ParaChomp

    Still don’t see how it can fly.

  • Leivinia

    In this movie, Genesect will be capturing and cloning other trainers’ Pokemon, then outfitting them with armor just like it had been.

    What? No, it isn’t just a ripoff of Mewtwo Strikes Back; that’s ridiculous; Genesect will be using Cherish Balls to store its cloned Pokemon, so that makes it completely different.

  • Göran Isacson

    Countdown to “Generisect” jokes start in five, four…

  • Renaldi Saputra

    I heard it’s called a mechanized kabutops, ehh??

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Lol, it is totally new Poke there.^^

      • Renaldi Saputra

        this will be the first cyborg pokemon..

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Yeahhh.^^ Genesect at last………No.T_T

    Lol how long must Pokemon Co take to announce pokemon that we already know here.T_T

    Well at least this pokemon does looks great here as it shows how Pokemon is able to be enhanced using human technology here.^^ Maybe in the future, we will had a pokemon series where we are not really fighting againts Pokemon but againts “machine type” of the pokemon there?
    Mecha Rayquaza?^^

    • Ben Sylvia

      I’m really hoping since 3DS games can have DLC in 6th gen any secret legendaries will be left out of the game until they decide to release them.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        They did already had a lot of DLC there lol.^^ This event can also be considered as DLC as we need to DL the content there albeit it is free which is great.^^

        And pliz no for that lol. We as gamer who had been keep followng Pokemon here, should had the rights to get the legendaries there lol even if we need to get them from certain events. Not from DLC for sure.

      • Yeah, agreed. Legendaries have no meaning anymore, in part because there are so many and also because the people who go digging around in the code reveal them months in advance. It takes away from the surprise completely.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      and then pokemon co will make a new type, machine..
      machine is different from steel

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Or……Cyborg Pokemon?^^

    • Detrimont

      should be a sequel to gale of darkness, and on wii U or 3ds

  • 2 things. 1 they sure are releasing event mon fast alongside their movies. Could this be because they want to get B/w2 out of the way so they can get to releasing the 3DS Pokemon game? 2) Anybody notice that these event Pokemon have no ingame events? Only victini did. Anybody know why this is?

    • LynxAmali

       Haven’t they always released events alongside the movies?

      Or am I thinking of theater showings?

      • Yes. What I was saying is they are releasing a lot of them in a short period of time. And that surprisingly there are no in-game events for them. (i.e. Eon Ticket).

  • So, anyone thinks it’s a Kabutops mechanized?

  • miju


    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World


    • haqua

       HAha. Black Adventures reference~?

      • miju

         You got it bro~!

  • Hinataharem


  • komiko12

    Something confusing though…

    Did mecha already exist during Genesect’s time, since Pokedex entries said Team Plasma upgraded the cannon.

    Or Genesect was some ancient bug that was mechanized in present time?

  • paras.. parasect.. genesect.

    i got lost there.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      So…….Genesect is Paras great great great…………grandfather there?^^

      • Maybe it was an ancient paras family that was modified by Plasma.

  • Josh Strange

    I swear i seen this pokemon before…. 

  • Travis Rowe

    i saw it in black 1 i used the r4 card and it had a cheat on there …
