Here’s some POKEMON news that, for once, doesn’t involve Republican presidential candidates. ANN relayed a few details about which characters will be appearing in the forthcoming Second Season of BLACK & WHITE.

You’re looking at few Pokemon and trainers like…

Here are some visual aides for those who need some ocular proof...

(The inclusion of Meloetta is something a big hoodoo, since the psychokinetic critter’s “extremely rare” and will be headlining a new short, “Meloetta to Kirakira.”)

Plot-wise, the series will see Ash and Cynthia taking on the reigning champion, Adeku, at the World Tournament Junior Cup. You won’t have to speculate for too long about what that premise entails, since the series will start running next month.

You know, I’ve made no secret of the fact that Poke-mania infected the nation a year or two “after my time,” so any excitement conveyed here is purely me playing along. After watching ZETMAN, I’d still contend that this franchise could benefit a lot from some radical deconstructionist take on the mythos that’d appeal to the greater number of adults and young adults who have to be in the audience, now.

It’s not like one misfire poses any threat of derailing this particular gravy train - - Nintendo can afford to be a little experimental.

I would watch this again if Cynthia and Ash travel together. It would be cool to have Giovanni return.

So far so good.

I still like Pokemon, but I only watch after Ash has matured for that generation.

Every time they start a series with a new generation of Pokemon Ash seems to forget everything he learned in the past and becomes a novice trainer again. After the first 2 seasons of a generation Ash typically has stronger Pokemon and the battles are much more enjoyable to watch. I really enjoyed the battles at the end of the Diamond and Pearl generation and I hope the Black & White generation battles are great too.

@Tom_Pinchuk: I clicked on Cynthia and it led me to a Dragon Ball character.

The mysterious rival better be N

I stop watching Pokemon, it just become the same thing over and over (but I do like that Team Rocket become more dangerous)

They kind of did in the Pokemon Manga, which is way better then the anime

Rule 1 about Nintendo. Anytime they are experimental, the fanbase boos them for the stupidest, pettiest reasons.

Tom, you totally got the wrong Cynthia! That one's from Dragon Ball! XD This is her.

To be on topic, I have a good feeling that B&WS2 will turn out to be awesome now. <3

I always felt that Nintendo screwed up by not calling this game POKEMON: EBONY & IVORY. Just think of the commercials.

Not even Cynthia my favourite Pokémon Champion makes me want to go on watching this show. I will however gladly read Pokémon Adventures and buy the new games :)

Why, Pokemon anime can't be like this?

I would gladly watch this

@Destinyheroknight: I think since they've got the regular on-going series out each week they should do a mini series adjacent to it. They did Chronicles but that was just repackaging. They should target a maturer age. Around 15+ at least in different lands. Africa/Europe/Americas etc. Then I'd start watching again. Similar to watch you showed, but more aggressive action and darker story.

This should be the new pokemon anime IMO. No Ash and more like Adventures. Sad that its only for the games
