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

The first two pages reveal information about the changes to Unova and Black and White Kyurem:
* White Kyurem is 3.6m, 325 kg. {{m|Ice Burn}} is its {{bp|signature move}}
* Black Kyurem is 3.3m, 325 kg. {{m|Freeze Shock}} is its signature move.
* The game is set 2 years after {{game|Black and White|s}}.
* There have been many changes to the region. There appears to be an encroaching ice sheet or glacier, and the water in the area around the {{bp|Entralink}} has dried up.
**
* 300 Pokémon in addition to the original 156 Unova Pokémon are now available.
** The Unova Pokédex also appears to have drastically changed, with {{p|Riolu}} being #033, {{p|Psyduck}} being #026, and {{p|Metagross}} being #264.
** The Pokémon {{p|Riolu}}, {{p|Psyduck}}, {{p|Metagross}}, {{p|Tyranitar}}, {{p|Eevee}}, {{p|Lapra}}, {{p|Arcanine}}, {{p|Weavile}}, and {{p|Mankey}} all appear to be in the new regional Unova Pokédex.

The next two pages reveal information about the new player characters, rival, and Gym Leaders:
* There are two new player characters; the male is the characters [[May CoroCoro begins to leak|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 {{type2|Poison}} {{bp|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; he's a new {{type|Water}} 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.
** Its main point of interest is its lookout. There is a Pokemon Center and Trainers' School; this is the first time your starting city has included either, as well as the first time the starting location is a city and not a town.
