A plethora of information regarding Pokémon Black and White Versions 2 has been revealed in leaked photos of pages from CoroCoro Comics magazine.

Black Kyurem and White Kyurem

The first two pages reveal information about the changes to Unova and Black and White Kyurem:

  • Black Kyurem is 3.3m, 325 kg. Freeze Shock is its signature move.
  • White Kyurem is 3.6m, 325 kg. Ice Burn is its signature move.
  • The game is set two years after the events of Pokémon Black and White.
  • There have been many changes to the Unova region. There appears to be an encroaching ice sheet or glacier, and the water in the area around the Entralink has dried up.

The next two pages reveal information about the new player characters, rival, and Gym Leaders:

  • There are two new player characters; the male is one of the characters revealed yesterday on the cover, while the female has not been seen before.
  • The character wearing red that was seen yesterday is the new rival; he is said to be a childhood friend of the player.
    • The rival is quoted as saying "From now, I'm going to rage!"
  • The girl with the guitar is Homika, a new Poison-type Gym Leader. Her Gym is said to be a "Live House" (a Japanese term for a music club where live bands play). She will appear in the anime in an episode on June 14.
  • The tanned male in the swimming costume is Shizui, a new Water-type Gym Leader.
  • The man in the lab coat is Akuroma. He is researching Pokémon strength. A cut-off portion of the photo mentions he is doing something regarding the latent abilities of Pokémon.

The next two pages reveal information about the new starting city:

  • The new starting city is Hiougi City, located in the south-west of the map of Unova.
    • Its main point of interest is its lookout. There is a Pokemon Center and Trainers' School; this is the first time that the starting city has included either, as well as the first time the starting location is a city and not a town.
