Pokémon AR Searcher is a shooting-style game that puts Pokémon in real-world environments through the use of the 3DS back cameras. The app allows Pokémon to be caught and transferred to copies of Pokémon Black and White 2. The official Japanese Pokémon site mentions that rare Pokémon may be found through this app. The app will be available starting June 23 for ¥300 in the Nintendo eShop.

An updated version of Pokédex 3D, Pokémon National Pokédex Pro has expanded to include Pokémon outside the Unova Pokédex. In addition, the new forms of Kyurem, Black Kyurem and White Kyurem, will also be featured. The app will be available on July 14 for ¥1500 at the Nintendo eShop. The original app will be removed from the eShop on June 17, but updates will continue for the rest of the year.

A new trailer for Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 has also been shown. The new trailer shows mainly what previous trailers have shown, but there are also a few new clips, including more footage of Shizui's Gym.
