As many of you await the release of Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 for the Nintendo DS, Nintendo has released a feature that is sure to make your long wait seem even longer. When the game launches on October 12th, 2012, you will be able to partake in the Pokémon World Tournament! In the tournaments, you can battle gym leaders from the past games, such as Lance and Volkner. If that doesn’t add excitement to your already excruciating wait, I don’t know what does!
The new Pokémon World Tournament mode includes the following:
Compete Against Classic Gym Leaders: Enter the Pokémon World Tournament, an exciting arena where players will be able to take on Gym Leaders and Champions 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 Version 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.
