New Video of B2W2, Includes Misty Battle Footage
Thanks to a member named Puddizzle on Pokébeach's forums (click the link below), we got new footage of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 to look at. The story goes that a sushi bar in Japan was holding a promotional campaign where every 6 plates of sushi gives you a 1 in 15 chance of winning a DVD with promo videos for the games. Puddizzle ordered a whooping 60 plates of sushi to win this prize!
Anyways, the footage shows random bits of B2W2 footage, and perhaps most importantly shows a battle against Misty in the Pokémon World Tournament feature of the game. A remixed version of the Kanto leader theme is played and she uses a Starmie.

Wallpaper for Meloetta's Pirouette Forme Completed
Pokémon #648, Meloetta, has two formes: the Aria forme and the Pirouette forme, the latter of which was revealed just a few days ago on Oha Suta, then in CoroCoro. Meloetta's name actually seems to be a reference to both of its formes, with the "melo" coming from melody (what that means is obvious) and the end bit from pirouette, a type of ballet move that you're likely familiar with; it's the one-leg whirl you pretty much always see in performances. Moving on, TopHat has now finished 673 wallpapers if my math is right, not including the "Unova Origins" and things placed in the Rarities gallery. So, 673, just going off what's placed in the official galleries. Incredible. Anyways, check out TopHat's latest addition to The Unova Collection!
