Pokémon Black & White 2 keeps surprising me everyday. It started with being the first ever direct sequel to a previous entry, and now this trailer just turned up today and my mind exploded. What can we get from this new video? First off, it seems like an even greater emphasis will be placed on the story. The original Black & White is well known for being the most story-driven game in the franchise. Although Pokémon won’t win an Oscar just yet, it’s interesting to note the shift in the series. More importantly, are those anime scenes actually taken from the game itself? It sure seems like it, as it’s not in the company’s tradition to spend such hard work on a teaser alone.
One thing I’m not a big fan of is that everybody seems to keep their Pokémon out of their Pokéballs now. In the trailer, you see people battling with Pokémon in actual fights, instead of traditional Pokémon battles. Really not a big fan of that, but maybe it’s played out well and I’ll end up liking the new direction. Also noteworthy is the return of N! He now wears a mysterious neckless which will probably play a big role in the plot. My guess is it has something to do with finding or controlling one of the two different legendaries. Anyway, what do you guys all think of this new trailer?
