'Pokémon Black/White Version 2' (NDS) Gets New Connectivity Features

by Rainier on Aug. 1, 2012 @ 1:52 p.m. PDT

Introducing a new story line and the next generation of Pokémon, the new releases features Black Kyurem and White Kyurem, and can also be played in 2D on 3DS systems.

Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 bring players back to the Unova Region two years after the events of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version. There are many new areas to discover, and changes to familiar places for you to explore. One new area is Virbank City, home to Pokéstar Studios. Players will be able to visit Pokéstar Studios and star in their own movie with their favourite Pokémon. The movie a player creates premieres at the in-game theatre, where the audience gives it a rating. Movies are rated based on script choices and battle move sequences, and players can even create sequels to existing movies. There are many movie genres to choose from, including romantic comedy and horror.

Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 will also give fans of the original games a chance to catch up with some familiar friends. In this game, Cheren and Bianca return two years after the events of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version, and a lot has changed. Bianca is now the assistant to Professor Juniper, helping her with Pokémon research and Cheren is now a Gym Leader and a teacher at a school in Aspertia City – the starting location for this adventure.

In Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, players will also be able to catch some of the Pokémon from outside the Unova region − such as Eevee, Riolu, Tyranitar, Arcanine and Mareep− right from the start of the game. If they are playing on Nintendo 3DS, players can also transfer Pokémon they have caught with the Pokémon Dream Radar into their Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 games (visible in 2D only). Pokémon Dream Radar lets players use several different features of the Nintendo 3DS system, including the Nintendo 3DS camera, motion control and augmented-reality technology, to discover and catch Pokémon. The game includes hard-to-find Pokémon such as the new Therian Formes of Legendary Pokémon Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus.

New information includes the following:

Pokédex 3D Pro: The perfect companion application to Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, Pokédex 3D Pro is sold separately and launches in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS on Nov. 8. Players can learn all about their favorite Pokémon, as this enhanced and upgraded version includes detailed information about more than 640 Pokémon featured in the history of the Pokémon video game series. With the new Pokémon Challenge, players can test their Pokémon knowledge in a variety of quizzes. To ensure that players have access to the Pokédex that will aid them the most while playing Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, the original Pokédex 3D will no longer be available from the Nintendo eShop after Oct. 1.

Join Avenue: In Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, players will also have the ability to explore a new area called Join Avenue. Join Avenue is populated by anyone with whom a player has interacted through wireless tag mode, trading or battling. These players will open shops in Join Avenue that sell rare items not found elsewhere in the game. There are several different types of shops that can be opened on Join Avenue, including ones that offer supplies or the ability to power up Pokémon. The rarity of items that can be purchased from these shops is determined by how populated a player's Join Avenue is.

Memory Link: By connecting Pokémon Black Version 2 or Pokémon White Version 2 with a previously played Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version game, players will be able to see what happened to some of the characters from Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version during the past two years. They'll also be able to capture special Pokémon.The scenes players encounter in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 will depend on how far they have progressed through Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version. To use Memory Link, players must have either two systems from the Nintendo DS or Nintendo 3DS family, or broadband Internet access and a Pokémon Black Version game or Pokémon White Version game that has been synced to the Pokémon Global Link website.

Pokémon Dream Radar: Launching Oct. 7 exclusively on the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, Pokémon Dream Radar is an entirely 2D experience that lets players catch Pokémon and items using augmented-reality technology by moving the Nintendo 3DS to aim and shoot Dream Clouds. Caught Pokémon and items from Pokémon Dream Radar can be transferred into Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2. The game lets players take on the role of an assistant to Professor Burnet, a scientist studying the Interdream Zone. The Pokémon that players catch in Pokémon Dream Radar may have hidden abilities that aren't available in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, and many of the items in the game cannot be found in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2.
