Pokémon Black & White - Pokédex

A common thing people have requested is a list of the trainers who own the various Pokémon within the game in order for them to see the Pokémon to look for it on the Global Trade Station. While we did have this for the regional Pokédexes in the game, this missed out most of the Pokémon within the game. As such , I've compiled a subsection of the Pokédex which lists the trainers with the Pokémon and all the details for the particular Pokémon including gender, form, moves and ability.

Pokémon at Jump Festa

As we reported last month, the Pokémon Company is set to be in Jump Festa on December 17th and 18th and to provide a surprise announcement there. While we still don't know what the announcement is, the official site has put in some hints saying that at Jump Festa, they will provide the latest Pokémon game and goods information. As there are no upcoming games in Japan at the moment, this indicates a probability that a new game shall be revealed. This, however, is not a guarantee as it could end up just speaking about the recent game and announcements focusing on other aspects of the franchise. We do know that there will be a surprise announcement and we do know that PokéPark 2 and the merchandise Pokémon Battle Chess are to be showcased so it's hard to say for sure. It's possible that if there is a game coming, it will be revealed in CoroCoro prior to Jump Festa. We'll bring more news as and when it comes
