New Pokémon Professor Is Female


Professor Araragi Say hello to Professor Araragi, the authority on Pokémon in the Isshu region. Translated to English, we believe her name could / should be “Yew.” Quite the change from Oak, Elm, and all the rest, isn’t she?


According to another round of info from CoroCoro magazine, Pokémon Black & White allow you to upload your save file to the Internet. Mysterious. Could it be to prevent using hacked monsters in online ranked battles? After all, this piece of information is mentioned in the same section as a new wireless feature called “Random Match,” which is exactly what it sounds like.


CoroCoro also mentions an ingame device named the “C Gear,” which comes with various “connection abilities,” but just what these are isn’t detailed.
