One of the new Pokémon, Hatōpō
A user on the Japanese 2ch forum has posted photographs taken of a demo of Pokémon Black and White. One new Pokémon, Hatōpō (ハトーポー) can clearly be seen, while in another picture a second Pokémon has been partially blanked out.
Another new Pokémon, mostly obscured from view
Hatōpō's name contains hato (ハト), meaning pigeon or dove, leading to speculation that this Pokémon is related to Mamepato.

The blanked out Pokemon's name appears to end in nezumi (ネズミ), meaning 'mouse'. Its moves are Detect, Super Fang, Crunch and Hypnosis. It is holding an Everstone.

Additional information from 2ch points to names for two of the Pokémon unveiled on Oha Suta, as well as the Pokémon first glimpsed on leaked anime concept art and later seen briefly on the Pokémon Daisuki Club website. These are said to have the names Rankurusu (ランクルス), Kibago (キバゴ) and Gochiruzeru (ゴチルゼル).
