Woahhhhh, epic box art. Even though I like Black Reshi more, the art for White 2 is just... wow.

Why hello there, electricity and fire prominently featured on the boxart. Do I sense some implications about the Kyurems' types? Anyway, glad it's confirmed to be a sequel.

Also, this line:

"Keldeo itself can be downloaded from June 23rd 2012 to August 31st 2012. This event can be downloaded by players with Black, White, Black 2 or White 2. It is also said to unlock something in Black 2 & White 2."

I KNEW IT. All of the unreleased Mythical Pokemon are being distributed after BW2 comes out, and will have new events in them.

...Where's Meloetta's Sugimori artwork, though? I really thought they would show that in this issue. Is the poor thing going to be stuck with shoddy anime artwork forever?

There are some rumours going around that there might be another CoroCoro page with Meloetta details on it.

Edit: I have added the links to the "actual" source at the end, from where every single fansite got the news.

That part hasn't been confirmed. I'm worried about the screenshot with the Musketeer trio in the player's party, as it seems to foreshadow the familiar Secret Sword event.

Hmmm, didn't notice the Musketeers in the player's party. Hopefully it's just a reference to Keldeo's relationship with them, and/or the BW1 event.

If the event hasn't been changed in some way, it strikes me as odd that CoroCoro would point out that BW2 in particular has something unlocked by Keldeo.

The screenshot is from black/white. What I really wanna know is what the hell is Kyurem doing there....
Edit:Shouldn't we update that Kyurem knows at least Hydro Pump?

I agree, but the pessimist in me wonders if the Keldeo downloaded to Black and White will intentionally lack a fateful encounter flag, in which case the Moor of Iciruss event will forcibly be made exclusive to B2W2. After all, Darkrai and Shaymin's events were never unlocked in Diamond and Pearl. I wouldn't even think of this possibility if CoroCoro also referred to an in-game event in Black and White (preferably confirming that the two events are separate).

How do you know that the screenshot is from Black and White? And how can you tell which moves Kyurem has?

But then couldn't you just trade your Keldeo downloaded to BW2, back to BW1 and unlock the event in BW1 like that?

You could, but they wouldn't tell you that, and there wouldn't be much point to doing it.

So pretty much every picture of the formes shows them spitting out Fire/Electricity? I have a feeling they actuall will be Ice/Fire Ice/ Electric or have an ability that gets them STAB for Fire/Electric moves...

Um no, they didn't even show their official dual types. They could still be Dragon/Ice with Fire/Electric moves in their respective movepools.

The screenshot of the party is most definitely from BW simply from the fact that if we got BW2 screens, it wouldn't be for Keldeo's event, and if mentioning BW2 was for that particular screen, it would have been pointed out by, oh, EVERYONE. As for Kyurem, I meant Keldeo, its the only attack animation that lines up with what we got in the screen.

I hope they change up Black and White 2's battle scene myself, even if it's minor alterations like improved background/new status bars, like Platinum did. Just to make it feel fresher.

Um...cool boxart.

Hence the I have a feeling... it was a guess...
