Get Your Pokémon Sequels Teaser Trailer Here

Posted by James Newton

Roll up, roll up

Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 are due out later this year — June in Japan, autumn/fall in the West — and while we still don't know much of anything about them here's a teaser trailer to watch anyway.

The video doesn't show much we didn't already know — new Formes for Kyurem, autumnal release — but hey, it's a video. That's exciting enough, right?

Bask in all its moving glory below.

I dunno. Unlike the way that most people around here seem, I'm kinda excited about these games. They could be pretty good.

I'm going to move my speculative analysis to this one. Note, SPECULATION!
So...we all know that this is the first time the Pokemon main series has ever had a direct sequel, so one of the questions that arises is 'will the region change with the storyline, or will the region just stay Unova?'

Recall that after you find all Seven Sages, and effectually beat the game, Looker tells you something before he leaves for good: “Okay, 'player'...There's something I need to tell you. I've heard intel that, somewhere really far away from here, there's been sighting of an N-ish person with a dragon Pokémon. I am going to go and see if it's really true! Well, see you again someday!”
This is really interesting, because this leaves an unresolved plot. After the final Elite Four battle, N had thanked you for helping him realize his mistakes about Pokemon-human relationships, and then flies away on the Dragon Pokemon opposite of yours (so...Reshiram for White version and Zekrom for Black version).
We know from the pseudo-'cover art' released that Reshiram/Kyurem matches up with the White version this time and Zekrom/Kyurem matches up with the Black version. This would connect perfectly with the storylines of their respective predecessors with N having escaped with that Pokemon. And then there's Looker's mentioning of a place "really far away from here." I don't know, I thought it was cool and worth exploring.

What if this game takes place in old unova? before the big fight between the brothers about truth and ideals... when reshiram and zekrom are one? It could probably make sense somehow... XD



HanuKwanzMasBif said:

Looks pretty cool. Never got Black or White, maybe I'll get one of these.
Shame that they're making two different versions just to shift more copies to those hardcore players.

@eryan64 After thinking what you had said by myself, I raised my expectations a little, if you actually go to another region, I think I'll end up buying it ( I still pray for the day of a transferable pokedex) I really though the story would be ended loosely on gen VI at first.



AutumnShantel said:

Just because it's Pokemon, I'll get it. I reserved White and wasn't even looking forward to it, and eventually, it ended up being my second favorite gen. (3rd gen being my favorite). So maybe White 2 will surprise me again.



DarkKirby said:

This is essentially the still pictures shown before in slide show form with zooming and the camera moving quickly.



JaxxRaxor said:

If Gamefreak really beefs up the story (Black and White's story was the best out of the Pokemon franchise but still not as good as nearly all other eastern RPGs) then it will be worth a purchase for many even if the rest of the game is basically like the 3rd version games of past generations.



Simon_Deku said:

So Black Kurem is in Black 2? Hmm, I still am not interested. These New ones are downright ugly! If only it would just be more like platinum. Those different rotoms were great!



Late said:

@Simon_Deku: You're not the first one to think so. I've heard people saying that Hoenn could be there. They say that the logos refer to R/S (blue/red colors).

Not sure if I'll get Black 2 or not. Need some more information to decide if it's worth the purchase.



SpaceKappa said:

That's what I was thinking as well. Combining the third version with the remakes is actually kind of a rad idea.

I'm dying for some new information, though, not just a trailer that pans over the still images they've already released. I NEED MY FIX NINTENDO



gamepopper said:

Now time to wait for gameplay footage from a TV show hosted by overly excited (huge understatement) Japanese presenters.



NassaDane said:

The blue and red isn't for Sapphire and Ruby, it is the colors of Electricity and Fire just like the Black and White legendaries. There still is the diminutive chance they are connecting both but that seems a tad farfetched and slightly obscure.



ManekiNeko said:

Personally, I doubt they'll combine generations... but hey, anything could happen. It's funny though that Kyogre would be effective in a battle against Reshiram and Groudon against Zekrom. Meh, all we can do is wait...



Yrreiht said:

They gave the ending away with this teaser! we all know that Samus is the one who killed yoshi! and if you look closely, you can see phoenix wright....

BREF! thats a teaser alright =I



Megumi said:

...If this is a true sequel, it BETTER have a way for me to transfer all of my monsters to this game. I'm not giving them up. >.>
And these games better be new, lol



TKOWL said:

Why don't they give us more information? I mean, it was only announced four days ago and the game is still deep in development, and I'm impatient, but good god, GameFreak. I expected more from a teaser I wasn't expecting much from anyways.



Zenszulu said:

Hopefully it will continue was was arguably the most thought provoking story in ages in many games that you were pretty much holding the pokemon against their will as it came to quite an abrupt end in many ways, that's if it turns out to be a direct sequel like people are saying.



Shirma_Akayaku said:

If it were a 3DS game then updates could happen and things like this (making a squeal) wouldn't have to happen



XCWarrior said:

Agree with Shadow. It's not a sequel, it's simply "Ver. 2" Meaning they are putting back in the BT stuff that should have been there in Ver. 1



Radixxs said:

If the R/S remakes (which i didn't really want) are included with this game, I'll probably cave. Pokemon has some sort of hold on me. Just looking at the new Pokemon makes me want the game, even though I am disappointed it isn't for 3DS.

I passed on Platinum, but if these are different games than B/W I may not be able to skip them.



ZurrrrBlattTron said:

Am I the only that thinks n should appear more in a pokemon ruby/sapphire remake in a side quest or after you beat the champion theirs reports of n on a nearby island and looker needs help finding him (like platinum) idk I just don't think n would appear in black white 2 for some reason unless there's more to unova that we didn't see yet



DanteSolablood said:

@eryan64 I said something similar (though your explaination is superb as well), of course there is also the mystery of the final Team Plasma member on top the dissapearance of N. As I've reiterrated a couple of times, I believe that B2&W2 are games made at the same time or just after the originals in order to fill time until Gen 6.

This would buy Gamefreak enough time to work on a new graphics & game engine for when Pokémon hits the 3D screen.



Ecto-1 said:


We don't have any real information on the game yet, but as someone said in the other thread (the one with 314 comments), this isn't necessarily "version 2" of the same game. The originals were titled "Pokemon Black Version" and "Pokemon White Version." The word "version" was a part of the title, not something that has just been added to these.



WreckItRyan said:

@DanteSolablood Thanks! And I completely agree with you on all fronts.

@Contrary That's a really interesting idea... his realization and subsequent break-away from the brainwashing of Ghetsis would set him up as a worthy protagonist.



Drawdler said:

Wow! Shows off all the new features! Doesn't matter it's on DS if we get all of this. XP



sillygostly said:

It wouldn't surprise me if Game Freak somehow integrate the Hoenn region into this game as there is no point of releasing a whole new Unova region game considering that all of the Gen V Pokemon are available for capture between the two games (unless they give us some new Pokemon and/or forms).



Rensch said:

I so passionately hope the '2' means it really is a sequel, rather than just a double Yellow-esque version for Black/White.
