Pokemon Black and White 2 five-minute anime teaser promo released

The release of a new Pokemon game is kind of a worldwide big deal, and this new trailer does justice to the event with five minutes of anime-styled Poke-battles. Click play for all the spiky hair, flashing animation, and electric guitars your mind can handle.

Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 are headed for stores on October 7th. In related news, the Pokemon Video Game World Championships are this weekend. The finalists will be featured in Black and White 2 as downloadable trainers with their chosen team of Pokemon.

    Wow, they somehow made the already WTF-looking protagonists from B&W look normal-ish by adding even more WTF ones to this next game. At this rate, the next Pokemon game after this will have spiky piles of hair with anime eyes in place of trainers.

    wish the real anime looked this good.

    So what, exactly, is this game going to be about? Are the protagonists the same kids, because that wouldn't make much sense. And I thought Team Plasma was defeated in Black/White. And is this the "new" anime, or was it just whipped up for the game? So many questions! D: Suffice to say, I'm still excited. Pokemon will forever be a love of mine, since the original show.

    Theyre the next kids to get pokemon, which is the first time this has ever happened(you meet the first kids in game, one of them is a gym leader)

    Soo, is that what the pokemon anime is actually looking like nowadays? Cause that wasn't too bad.

    I was thinking the same thing. There's a bit of cheese with the voice acting, but the battle looked more... believably Pokemon, and the animations looked waaaay better than the older (or even current) show. I could see myself watching that.
