As we stated earlier today, a big Pokemon announcement would be made during the Japanese TV show Pokemon Smash!. Well the announcement was not what all Pokemon fans were hoping for, no Pokemon Gray and no Pokemon 3DS. Instead Japan will be getting Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 for the Nintendo DS, never before has the series had sequels. No information was given as to what can be expected in the games, but Junichi Masuda stated that the names of the legendary Pokemon would be revealed next week. He released the information earlier on his twitter account and it appears “Black Kyurem” and “White Kyurem” are the names of new legendary Poke’mon!!
No definite confirmation on a US release, but the US Pokemon Site (http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-video-games/pokemon-black-version-2-and-pokemon-white-version-2/) states that the games will be called Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 with details to be released throughout the year.
