Kyogre And Groudon Are Headed To Pokémon Black/White 2 In Japan


Kyogre and Groudon, the mascot legendaries from Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire, are headed to Pokémon Black/White 2 in Japan. Both will be level 100 and will be distributed at Pokémon Centers and select stores in celebration of Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire’s 10th anniversary. The distribution will run from November 21st – January 10th.


Groudon (for Black 2):

Groudon comes with Eruption, Arm Hammer, Earth Power, Solar Beam. He has the Drought ability. The Drought ability has the same effect as the move “Sunny Day,” except that, since it’s an ability, it never wears off. Drought plus Eruption results in a stronger attack. Drought also makes Solar Beam an instant attack, instead of requiring it to charge up first.


Kyogre (for White 2):

Kyogre comes with Water Spout, Thunder, Ice Beam, and Sheer Cold. He has the Drizzle ability. The Drizzle ability is the equivalent of the move “Rain Dance”. Having Drizzle gives Thunder 100% accuracy and Drizzle also makes Water Spout is a stronger attack. Again, since Drizzle is an ability, it never wears off.
