News on Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 was missing in action during E3 2012, leaving North American fans without so much as a hint to when the pair of sequels will make their way over here. That being said, some new details are beginning to pour in as Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 both near their release in Japan. One such detail is the confirmation that the previously unobtainable Keldeo can not only be caught, but it will also have an additional form exclusive to the two new titles.
Following the trend established by Kyurem and its two new forms (Black Kyurem and White Kyurem), Keldeo will also have a unique ability to change its appearance ever so slightly. The new look for the legendary Keldeo has been titled the ‘Resolution Form’, and the process required to earn the form is a lot more strenuous then that of other shapeshifting pocket monsters.
To unlock the new version of Keldeo, gamers must unite the unicorn-looking beast with the three legendary Pokemon Terrakion, Virizion and Cobalion. After taking them all to a forest in Sangi Town, Keldeo will learn a new attack called ‘Secret Sword’, and once it knows that move it’ll transform and remain in its Resolution Form. To revert the creature back to its original stature, all trainers have to do is delete move Secret Sword.
Despite controversy over Nintendo’s unwillingness to make these Pokemon games for the 3DS, Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 are easily two of the most anticipated handheld games coming this year. Both titles are on track to launch in Japan on June 23rd — much to the delight of importers — so fans can expect plenty of new details later this month.
Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 are scheduled to launch in North America this Fall exclusively on the Nintendo DS.
