We’re only a month away from the debut of Pokemon Black/White 2 for the Nintendo DS, and with the upcoming second season of Pocket Monsters: Best Wishes! kicking off on June 21, it’s only appropriate that the new promo for the game be in anime form.
It’s in Japanese, but there are subtitles provided:
Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 will be the first time the long running Pokemon franchise will have a direct sequel (as evidenced by the number suffix, instead of a new color theme), the sequels will be set in the same setting as Pokemon White/Black, but in different regions.
It is also worth noting that the game was released for the Nintendo DS instead of the 3DS, probably because Nintendo doesn’t want to alienate the already large fanbase on the DS. They won’t lose out on the 3DS, since it’s backwards compatible with DS carts. The only disadvantage to this is the fact that the graphics won’t be able to take advantage of the new handheld’s capabilities.
