    Yeah, we'd better get Groudon with V-Create.

    I would like to point out the Black TWO and White TWO portion. Two, as in second, signifies a sequel, as opposed to our previous experience of an enhanced version. I would like to express my doubts that it will be like the past 'sequels' which weren't at all sequels, but the exact same game with MINOR changes to mostly the after game and a few new wild Pokemon. Since it is characteristic of Unova to contain no foreign Pokemon until after game, that idea is out. That is just another one of my predictions, as the other stuff just doesn't add up for me

    We already have Rayquaza with V-create, so Groudon with V-create would be "oh dear Iblis, I'm fucked O.O" Meanwhile, if it is a remake with minor changes (possibly like Platinum) then I'm going to be very very sad. Now, on the Ruby/Sapphire remakes, there are two ways that they could release them.
    Way 1) The anniversary of the Original Ruby/Sapphire
    Way 2) Third generation included First generation remakes. Fourth generation included Second generation remakes. Fifth generation includes Third generation remakes.

    Those are my points of view on B/W2 and R/S Remakes.

    Keldeo has been confirmed to do something special for Pokemon Black 2 and White 2. Just saying.

    Keldeo being released is going to suck because it's like, freaking beast in Dream World. I've added it on to my DW team (due to recommendations from Harsha and others) and it's pretty beast. However, Keldeo will probably be moved into OU. I can't see it being UU or Ubers.

    Keldeo is definitely going to be OU. It's really not too broken due to its lack of coverage without using Hidden Powers. However, the biggest changes that the future can bring to the metagame are by far and away the releases of Genesect and Shadow Tag Chandelure. We have received no date regarding Genesect, so we can assume that it won't be released for a while, but seriously, things are used in the DW tier solely because of their ability to beat Chandelure and not get killed by Genesect. Sandstorm is the most popular playstyle (60% of teams use Tyranitar, and Garchomp and Excadrill are high in usage), and that is most likely because sand offense is the only reliable way of taking down Chandelure and outspeeding Genesect (Sand Rush Excadrill).

    In conclusion, I couldn't care less about the new Kyurem formes; they most likely will be BL due to the typing they might possess; instead, the things that worry me are the impending threats that may be released. Keldeo won't harm the metagame. However, we're all going to have to worry when Genesect and Chandelure come to haunt the game. Seriously, stall is barely even viable in DW OU.

    Agreed on the last bit Harsha. Sandstorm DW teams make me a bit sad because they are only used to take down two, very powerful, pokemon in Dream World. Abusing sand for a mere two pokemon only is just sad. Why not go all out and make a reliable non-weather Dream World team anyway?

    The thing is, weather is just so good. Honestly, sand is by far and away the best weather in the metagame, no matter how much I love Manaphy and rain abusing Dragonite. There's just no way to beat down perfected offense against an opponent of the same skill level, as that's what the metagame is going to look like. Remember, DW OU is a theoretical perfected BW OU. Also, sadly, Manaphy will most likely be banned soon, as it is being discussed in Smogon.

    Everything is so overpowered, but very little is broken.

    According to Serebii, CoroCoro has confirmed that the games will have new story and plot and WILL NOT BE ANOTHER DIFFERENT COLORED GAME.

    I would also like to point out that the Black and White Kyurem have way cooler tails when 'active' with energy than the normal counterpart. JUST SAYIN'.

    *cough*Me.*cough* Using sand elevates Excadrill, a normally decent Pokemon, and Garchomp, the best Dragon in DW OU, to another dimension of offensive ability. While they share some mutual counters (e.g. Skarmory, Bronzong, opposing weather), not much can switch into their attacks without getting too banged up. In fact, it's because each of their counters are so specific, few, and far between that sand teams an inherent advantage against other types of teams.

    Combine those two with Chandelure, and there are literally zero counters.

    Ugh. That sucks. Same typing? I don't think Kyurem will be hitting OU anytime soon.

    Sorry for the double post, but I'd like to inform the thread readers that Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 are scheduled to be released this fall (probably sometime in September). Cheers! Also, the game can be played on any version of the Nintendo DS. Click here for additional details.

    What an interesting development. Dream World Art. Now, we just need to wait for sprites.

    Black Kyurem learns Freeze Shock, a 140 Base Power Physical Ice-type move.


    White Kyurem learns Ice Burn, a 140 Base Power Special Ice-type move.

    Both moves require recharging. More info can be found here.

    New video update: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqPh1gY0Hg4&feature=g-all-u&context=G2d7f00dFAAAAAAAAJAA

    It has also been confirmed that Black Kyurem will know the move Freeze Shock and that White Kyurem knows the move Ice Burn.
    Within the new Unova Pokédex, which contains a combination of old and new (Unova) Pokémon, Psyduck is #026, Riolu is #033 and Metagross is #254, with other Pokémon such as Tyranitar, Lapras & Arcanine being available. We'll bring more should it come later but click the thumbnails for the larger images.

    First, the game is set in Unova and shows the new trainers and the rival. The game is set 2 years later than in BW and features the map of the Unova region being partially frozen, while other areas have been updated, such as Route 4. The Unova Pokédex has 300 Pokémon within it. There are various new areas in Unova including Hiougi City (ヒオウギシティ), where you begin your journey. There are other areas which has a gym leader who focuses upon Poison; Homika (ホミカ), who is also said to be in the anime this June and sits in her gym which is a music club, fitting her appearance with a guitar. Another gym leader is Shizui (シズイ), the Water-type leader. The trainer with the spiky hair is the rival and there is a new researcher called Akuroma (アクロマ) who researches Pokémon Strength
    Hiougi City has a Pokémon Centre and a Trainer School and areas where you can look upon the areas. There are shops, underwater tunnels with clear glass (Mantine flowing overhead), building with blue and red statues all around Unova.

    Random Update:

    • Two new facilities, one of which appears to be some sort of arena, the second is a film studio shooting a Pokémon-themed action series.
    • Two older Pokémon are confirmed to appear in the games; Absol, and Pelipper.
    • Regular trainers are shown to have their own unique animations much like rivals and gym leaders have had.
    • A water-themed gym (likely Shizui's) features a lily pad puzzle.


    ANIMATED TRAINER SPRITES YAY



    Hiougi City is the starting city of Pokémon Black 2 & White 2. Unlike past starting areas, Hiougi City is quite expansive and has a variety of areas within it. First, it has a Pokémon Centre. Next to the Pokémon Centre is a trainer school and to the north-west of the city is a lookout where you can look towards the north and see the routes and mountains.

    Oh wow, B2W2 looks really exciting. I can't wait to get it.

    EDIT: For anyone interested, here's the trailer:
