    I wonder if that Zorua is the one that's seen with young N in the B/W opening.

    Or maybe the child of the Zoroark he uses in BW.

    Pretty much, and that's not getting bent out of shape at all. The only reason they replaced Whirlipede was so that Homika could have one. But really, they should of done a non-Unova Pokemon.


    Elesa:


    Emolga (LV28 )


    Flaaffy (LV28 )


    Zebstrika (LV30)



    Clay:


    Krokorok (LV31)


    Sandslash (LV31)


    Excadrill (LV33)



    You will obtain Fly, Cut, and Strength by the time you reach Nimbasa. Early use of Fly is awesome. I don't know what it is yet, but the development on Route 4 is an area on the map.


    The world tournament is held in Driftveil City on the site of the former Cold Storage.


    Drayden is the sole Gym Leader of Opelucid City. No mention of what happened to Iris.


    You receive a Zorua that formerly belonged to N in Driftveil City - Level 25.


    You can continuously use repel until you run out in your inventory. No need to keep selecting it after the first one wears off. - AWESOME!



    its been two years maybe she left to go on her own advanture.....with Ash.....


    I suppose the early use of fly makes sense because there will be so many more locations.


    Wait former? so does that mean we have to wait to get a Vanilish? Also whats happening along the route where there were road works?

    Well, this is a surprise. I assumed Alder was still champion. This makes Iris the second female champion of a league.

    Didn't expect Iris to be the champion. But I'm glad they're bringing back a wide variety of moves that can be learned via move tutors.

    Early HMs - WOOT! Early Fly!
    Zorua - I'm a bit sad about this. I mean it's nice now that it's available without an event though at the same time it kind of makes getting it in Black & White through an event sort of meaningless. Last time I checked the one from B&W doesn't have any special moves so it seems like now it's more of a hassle to get. Would have liked them to have waited a generation, but no big deal in the long run (not like anyone usually has a Zorua on their their team during the storyline game, anyway. Actually now they can).
    Repels - THANK ARCEUS! Though hopefully it'll still make the spray sound to remind you that you still have Repel on. Hm, I wonder if they brought back the feature that let you run without holding down B...
    Champion - Surprised

    Expected her to be an Elite 4. Guess the Fight/Psychic/Ghost/Dark square was too good to change in their mind.


    No Heracross yet. :T

    We can finally find out if the rumors are true... are they the Striaton Triplets: Cilan, Chili, and Cress?

    Who knows. It's possible considering how much the Pokemon Adventures manga has hinted at it.

    I'm kind of disappointed at how the teams of the returning Gym Leaders and Elite Four only have one or two minor switches. Oh well, games still look great.

    Iris's Team: Hydreigon, Haxorus, Druddigon, Aggron, Lapras, Archeops.

    ... Iris you do realize that other regions have Dragon-type Pokemon, right? There's Dragonite, Kingdra, Altaria, Flygon, Salamence, Garchomp... and that's pretty much it for fully evolved, non-Legendary dragons. Now I suppose Aggron and Archeops are there to deal with Ice-types and Lapras to deal with other Dragon-types, but the fully evolved Dragon-types can learn Fire-, Rock-, and definitely Dragon-type moves so still. If they didn't want to be too cheap then give her Kingdra, Altaria, and Flygon, they aren't Pseudo-legendary.

    She probably got over her dragon phase between BW and BW2.

    Apparently there's a challenge mode for the Elite Four rematches. Unfortunately, they're just at a higher level with one of their rematch Pokemons replaced with a powerful older gen Pokemon. Iris' rematch challenge mode team: Hydreigon, Haxorus, Salamence, Aggron, Lapras, Archeops.n

    And based on the Nintendo Direct that they just had, Homika's English name is Roxie.

    THE PUN. IT'S HURTING ME. Then again she is a Gym Leader, so that pain should be normal...

    In other news, the Kami Trio's Sacred Beast Forme is now called the Therian Forme.

    Hey guys, guess what, they release Homika's English name...

    ... oh, too late. Oh! But you probably didn't know that the Legendary Kami's Sacred Beast Forme is going to be called...

    ...


    BTW, in case your wondering, "Therian" comes from "Therianthropy" which refers to the shapeshifting of humans into animals.
