The world of Pokémon has once again returned to Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL, challenging players to catch and train their little warriors as best they can. Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 has arrived, so what can you expect from this all-new adventure?
What’s the story?
Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 White serve as a direct sequel to 2011’s Pokémon Black and Pokémon White and can be used with the Pokémon Dream Radar and Pokédex 3D Pro. The action takes place two years after the previous games and is set in Unova once more, though the region has seen a great deal of change in the time that has passed. As a player, you can choose from one of two new heroes, take on new rivals and gym leaders, and hunt down new Pokémon like the Black and White Kyurem.
What are the badges?
There are a number of badges for you to chase in the games. First off there is the Basic Badge, which you’ll receive once you’ve defeated the Gym Leader Cheren, this will get your Pokémon up to a Level 20 so they will obey your commands. After this, the Toxic Badge will be awarded should you be able to beat your next opponent Roxie and bring your warriors up to Level 30. Then it is onwards to the Insect Badge, Bolt Badge, Quake Badge, Jet Badge, Legend Badge and Wave Badge, before you can progress to the Pokémon League Championship and Champion Quests.
There are loads of new features to Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 White that you’ll want to explore and all new locations, like the underwater tube that allows you to travel through the sewers beneath Castelia. You’ll have access to a Pokédex of 300 Pokémon right from the outset and will be able to use your Black Kyurem and White Kyurem’s Freeze Shock and Ice Burn moves right away. Other Pokémon to look out for include Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus and by giving them the Reflecting Mirror you’ll be able to change their forms. There are also mini-games to enjoy like the Pokéwood movie-making game and Pokémon Musicals.
All in all, this latest Pokémon adventure looks set to be everything fans of the series are crying out for – and may even be a great way for new players to join in the Poké-fun!
