Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, much like other recent games in the series, offer much more than just catching, training and battling up to six virtual critters simultaneously. Amongst other new features, such as a revamped Global Link website, Nintendo has now revealed new information regarding the games’ Pokémon World Tournament mode.
The new Pokémon World Tournament mode includes the following:
Compete Against Gym Leaders: Enter the Pokémon World Tournament, an exciting arena where players will be able to take on Gym Leaders from previous Pokémon video games. Fans of the series will be able to battle trainers such as Lance, Champion from the Johto Region and Volkner, Gym Leader from the Sinnoh Region. Players can also use the new battle styles and moves found only in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White 2 against these classic opponents.
Battle Format: Players will enter the Pokémon World Tournament as a part of an elimination tournament. Featured battles include single battles, double battles, triple battles and rotational battles. Using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, players can also receive data that allows them to battle with special trainers such as the top players and their teams from the 2012 Pokémon Video Game World Championships.
Previous main-series Pokémon games have always made good use of the DS’s Wi-Fi Connection capabilities, so it’s good to see what’s sure to be the DS’s final triumph following in its predecessors’ footsteps.
