The first pages featuring Alder, Bianca, Cheren, and N

As reported yesterday, the June 2012 CoroCoro was leaked, and today we received information inside the magazine regarding Black 2 and White 2.

The first page reveals that Alder, Bianca, N, and Cheren will be reappearing. Bianca features a new design, composed of longer hair, new attire, and glasses. She has officially become Professor Juniper's assistant, and gives the player their starter Pokémon. Cheren has also been given a new design and is now the regional Normal-type Gym Leader, replacing Lenora, but still giving away Basic Badges. The Basic Badge is shown on the sixth page to be the first one obtained by players. N is still reported as missing, as not even Team Plasma knows his whereabouts.

The second page features the Pokémon World Tournament with every Gym Leader and Champion from every region taking part in single battles, Double Battles, and many other types. Participants featured are: Cynthia, Blue, Brock, Misty, Lt. Surge, Erika, Janine, Blaine, Giovanni, Volkner, Steven Stone, and Lance.

The third page focuses on a new feature, Pokéwood, which pays homage to Hollywood and is where the player may take part in filming Pokémon movies. The films feature a scenario chosen by the player, and a number of Pokémon battles. Homika's father is also revealed to have co-starred in films alongside Brycen. Pokéwood is also set to be featured in the Pokémon anime on June 7.

The fourth page goes into the Pokémon AR Searcher, which features the new Professor Burnett, and gives the Kami Trio and their formes titles. Previous formes are now referred to as Kenshin Forme, and the new formes are Reijyura Forme.

The next few pages talk about Meloetta and Keldeo and their upcoming distribution in commemoration of the fifteenth Pokémon movie. The level 15 Meloetta is shown to hold a PP Max and know the first three moves it learns: Round, Quick Attack and Confusion.

The final pages reveal news of a new season of the Pokémon anime, Pocket Monsters Best Wishes 2, featuring the new formes of Kami Trio and some old characters including Hikari and Shirona.
