A Typhlosion takes on mecha-Tyranitar
The official Japanese Black and White 2 site has added pictures and new information regarding characters from Black and White, plus some of the additional features of Black and White 2. Bianca, Cheren, Alder and N have been given bio pages, while Team Plasma and some of the Seven Sages are confirmed to make an appearance.

The site shows Bianca serving in her new capacity as Professor Juniper's assistant, presenting the player with the three starter Pokémon. Cheren is seen meeting up with Bianca and using a Patrat in battle. Alder also returns, making an appearance in the middle of the story. A screenshot shows Rood, one of the Seven Sages, conversing with the player about N, whose whereabouts are apparently unknown. Numerous Team Plasma members are also present, accompanied by new Pokémon overworld sprites of Herdier, Scraggy and Galvantula. Anthea and Concordia can be seen, semi-obscured, in the background.

Cynthia in the Pokémon World Tournament
The Pokéwood screenshots show a Typhlosion using Overheat against a mechanical Tyranitar, and the player, who has a Slowbro, facing off against what seems to be a target bearing the face of a Krookodile. Brycen and Homika's father can also be seen confronting each other, both of them wearing costumes.

While the Pokémon World Tournament page mostly covers the same ground as the recent CoroCoro coverage, there is are clearer screenshots of the player facing Cynthia on stage, and beginning a battle against Blue. There is also confirmation that some challengers will be made available over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
