Sure, you may think that the importance of this trailer is seeing the main characters, Black Kyurem, and White Kyurem in motion. However, we all know, deep in our hearts, that we were most excited to see Mareep again. That fluffy sheep has been out of the spotlight for far too long, but no more! Gaze upon its yellow wool and despair!
Seriously though, the new protagonists look just as faux-hip as you would expect, with wacky anime clothes and Princess Leia hair. There were also some gym leaders and the character who will likely be your rival/leader of the Team Rocket stand-in for the title, which is cool. All the names we have so far will likely be changed before the English release, but if you’re curious head over to Adriasang. If I can express some disappointment, it appears that the “new Pokemon” promised earlier apparently don’t extend to new starters, so we’re stuck with Smugleaf, Herpderp, and Pignition again.
Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 are currently set for a June 2012 release in Japan with a planned third-quarter 2012 US and UK/EU release to follow afterwards. The games will be Nintendo DS exclusive.
