The first direct sequel in the Pokémon series continues the franchise’s tradition of all new content.
As revealed in Coro Coro Comics this wek, Andriasang reports Pokémon Black and White 2 will once more take place in the Isshu region, but this time, in the southern districts.
Players begin in a town called Hiougi City, which has a number of attractions – a scenic viewing spot with views of the surrounding urban landscape, a Pokemon Center, a trainer’s school, and the player character’s home.
You can once again choose between a male and female trainer, with both having a sportier appearance. A childhood friend looks set to be a recurring antagonist, as the magazine calls them “Rival”, and a mysterious figure called Akuroma appears, conducting research on Pokémon.
Two gym leaders were detailed – Homika favours poison types while Shizui prefers water.
Pokémon Black and White 2 releases for DS in Japan on June 23 but has not yet been dated for the west beyond a northern autumn window.
