Boom. Looks like we won't have to wait until tomorrow to get a look at Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, because the official site just updated with an exciting debut trailer.
The trailer shows us footage of multiple things...
- Opens up with what is likely a scene from the game's intro, featuring the Kyurem alts waking up.
- Seasons are back, as expected. The protags are shown walking through a route.
- Your rival is speaking with some squadron of uniformed guards or grunts in Nimbasa City. Has Team Plasma been replaced?
- The mysterious researcher, Akuroma, meets the protag on some televised stage.
- Homika, the Poison-type rockin' leader is shown, followed by Shizui, the Water-typed one.
- One of the underwater tunnels that your starting location, Hiougi City, is said to be connected to.
- 0:50 to 0:55 is actually a new feature for the games, what appears to be a movie theater.
- Next it showed the opposite side of the stage Akuroma was entering, then a marketplace.
- What appears to be new Global Link footage of the protagonist encountering a Minccino.
- The first bit that has the male protag walking through some doors is the live club Homika is a leader at. The next bit with the lily-pads is (probably) from Shizui's gym.
- A montage of battles starting. The battle field looks much nicer than before, with the circles that Pokémon stand on now actually featuring grass around it and such. The backgrounds, too, nicer.
- The game can be confirmed to have Absol, Pelipper, Tyranitar, Metagross, Eevee, Mareep and Riolu in the Unova Dex.
- All trainers seem to move now in battle too. Meaning, they have animated sprites, like some gym leaders and important characters have had in past games.
- Trailer ends off with footage of Black Kyurem and White Kyurem in battle, then their 3D models from a cutscene. In that cutscene, the setting looks to be a cave.
- Trailer ends with a snippet of the new Pokémon movie then footage of Keldeo fighting Emboar in the game.
The game screens seen in CoroCoro are also up in higher quality now, so check them out.
UPD: We also actually have another video to check out, which is White Kyurem and Black Kyurem attacking Serperior.
