It is raining.

Pokémon.co.jp has updated its Black and White section with official art of the new Pokémon revealed in the latest CoroCoro magazine, as well as some new information regarding the games' connectivity.

Information hinted in CoroCoro has been confirmed. The Japanese magazine mentioned in their latest publication that Black and White would be able to connect and interact with the Internet. It is stated on Pokémon.co.jp that players will be able to upload their save file onto the internet and play online. It is currently unknown whether this will be the full game, or if there will be some limitations.

The screenshots uploaded contain little new information. The C Gear is shown, but little information about it is known. Similar to Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, multiple key items—or shortcuts—can be registered with the DS's "Y" button. It has been confirmed that there will be a function on DS's lower screen during battle which shows the current weather; the time is shown there also. For the first time, the battle interface contains both Japanese and English text: the games appear to be at least somewhat bilingual.

Other information from CoroCoro, such as the Celebi/Zorua event reported earlier has also been confirmed.
