The official websites for Pokémon Black and White have revealed previously-reported Pokémon and features. Among these include the legendary Pokémon Victini (referred to as a Mythical Pokémon), the Entralink, and the Pokémon Dream World.

In addition to these, the Official Nintendo Magazine UK has revealed several names. Gym Leaders Dent, Pod and Corn will be Cilan, Chili and Cress, respectively. The Gym Leaders of Striaton City (Sanyou City) all have the Normal-type Lillipup (Yorterry) in addition to an elemental monkey. When defeated, they give TM83 - Work Up (Cheer Up) and the Trio Badge (Tri Badge).

Update:  Further names have come out of the woodwork, following the publication of a blog by Official Nintendo Magazine UK Games Editor Chris Scullion. The names were shown in screenshots accompanying the report on Scullion's first foray into Pokémon Black Version. In his article, Scullion unintentionally reveals the names Tympole (Otamaru), Timburr (Dokkora) and Nacrene City (Shippou City).
