Pokémon Black & White 2 Begin In The New Aspertia City


Nintendo have begun to release details about the English versions of Pokémon Black/White 2. As previously reported, Black/White 2 begin two years after the events of the original Pokémon Black/White, during which the Unova region has undergone some changes.


For starters, Black/White 2 begin in the new Aspertia City, pictured to the right and below.



Bianca from the first game is the one that gives you your Pokémon this time around. As you go on your adventure, you’ll get to find out why the Unova region has changed since Team Plasma’s defeat in the original games.


Recently, Japan’s CoroCoro magazine also revealed other details of the game, like the World Tournament, where you’ll get to fight older Gym leaders like Brock, Misty, Blue, Giovanni and others. You can find those details here.


Pokémon Black 2 will come with Black Kyurem as its exclusive signature legendary, while Pokémon White 2 will have White Kyurem. Black Kyurem’s signature move is Freeze Shock, while White Kyurem knows Ice Burn. Both are Ice-type moves.


Pokémon Black/White 2 will be released sometime this fall for the Nintendo DS. Below, you can find some additional screens from the Japanese version, too.
