A new video has revealed more new information from Pokémon Black and White, including some of its linking functions with the C-Gear and aspects of the battle system. The C-Gear's functions, previously described, are shown in detail, with a new feature known as "HiLink" revealed. This feature will allow players nearby to appear in the over world in another player's game.
A new feature known as Pokémon Musical (ポケモンミュージカル), a possible successor to the Pokémon Super Contests featured in the Sinnoh-based Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum, was also shown, with a similar dress-up function to the Generation IV games.
Two new Pokémon were also shown for the first time: a deer-like Pokémon which remains unnamed, and ミルホッグ Miruhoggu, assumed by its appearance to be the evolved form of Minezumi.
The Pokémon Dream World feature, which allows a Pokémon from the player's game to be uploaded to the internet and have adventures on a new Pokémon website, was further detailed; Berries were shown growing in a garden, and further details of meeting Pokémon of previous generations in this dream world included a brief battle with a Pikachu similar to the Safari Zone or Pal Park, where none of the player's Pokémon were sent out.
The PokéShifter was also demonstrated, with wireless communications between two DS systems, one holding a Generation IV game and one holding a Generation V game, transferred over Pokémon into a parklike area where the Pokémon's menu sprites bounded between grass patches in a sort of target-practice mini-game.
The Isshu over world was further revealed, with differences between the over world of Black being contrasted with that of White. New Trainer classes, including an American football player, a nurse or flight attendant, a backpacker, and a baker, were shown. A train similar to the Johto-Kanto Magnet Train was also demonstrated leaving a station, and battles will, like with the S.S. Anne, S.S. Aqua, and S.S. Tidal, be able to be conducted on the train.
