A plethora of information regarding Pokémon Black and White Versions 2 has been revealed in leaked photos of pages from CoroCoro Comics magazine.
[[File:CoroCoro May 2012 BW2 1.png|thumb|Black Kyurem and White Kyurem]]
The first two pages reveal information about the changes to Unova and Black and White Kyurem:
* Black Kyurem is 3.3m, 325 kg. {{m|Freeze Shock}} is its {{bp|signature move}}.
** The {{bp|Entralink}}'s moat is now dry, and the inner area has changed.
* 300 Pokémon (including the original 156 Unova Pokémon) are accessible.
** The Unova Pokédex also appears to have drastically changed, with {{p|Riolu}} being #033, {{p|Psyduck}} being #026028, and {{p|Metagross}} being #264.
** The Pokémon {{p|Psyduck}}, {{p|Arcanine}}, {{p|Lapras}}, {{p|Eevee}}, {{p|Mareep}}, {{p|Tyranitar}}, {{p|Metagross}}, {{p|Buneary}}, {{p|Riolu}}, {{p|Lucario}}, {{p|Weavile}} all appear to be in the new regional Unova Pokédex.

The next two pages reveal information about the new {{bp|player character}}s, {{bp|rival}}, and {{bp|Gym Leader}}s:
* There are two new player characters; the male is the character [[May CoroCoro begins to leak|revealed yesterday on the cover]], while the female has not been seen before.
* The character wearing red that was seen yesterday is the new rival; he is said to be a childhood friend of the player. He is a passionate boy who wages on a Pokemon's strength.
** The rival is quoted as saying "From now, I'm going to rage!"
* The girl with the guitar is Homika, a new {{type2type|Poison}} Gym Leader. Her Gym is said to be a "Live House" (a Japanese term for a music club where live bands play). She will appear in the anime in an episode on June 14.
* The tanned male in the swimming costume is Shizui, a new {{type|Water}} Gym Leader. He is described as a big-hearted big brother who gives passionate advice.
* The man in the lab coat is Akuroma. He is researching Pokémon strength. A cut-off portion of the photo mentions he is doing something regarding the latent abilities of Pokémon. He is said to be mysterious and hard to read.
[[File:CoroCoro May 2012 BW2 3.png|thumb|New starting city]]
The next two pages reveal information about the new starting city and new facilities:
* The new starting city is Hiougi City, located in the south-west of the map.
** Its main point of interest is its lookout. There is a Pokemon Center and Trainers' School; this is the first time the starting city has included either, as well as the first time the starting location is a city and not a town.
* There are several new facilities. One image shows a large glass tube going through water with {{p|Mantine}} swimming overhead.
The first trailer has been officially released on the official Pokémon of Japan website. The trailer reveals:
* Two new facilities, one of which appears to be some sort of arena, the second is a film studio shooting a Pokémon-themed action series.
* Two older Pokémon are confirmed to appear in the games; {{p|Absol}}, and {{p|Pelipper}}.
* Regular trainers are shown to have their own unique animations much like rivals and gym leaders have had.
* A water-themed gym (likely Shizui's) features a lily pad puzzle.
