Pokémon Black 2 is a game announced on Pokémon Smash on Sunday 26th February 2012 and features Black Kyurem as its mascot Pokémon.

The game was released on June 23, 2012 in Japan, October 7, 2012 in North America, October 11, 2012 in Australia, October 12, 2012 in Europe and November 8, 2012 in South Korea.

The gameplay is held 2 years after the events happened in Pokémon Black and Pokémon White. A part of the region is frozen. Team Plasma obtain a new costume. [[Cheren is now the new gym leader of Aspertia City, the hometown of the player. The player names will be Nate, if the player is a boy, and Rosa if a girl. Bianca is now an assistant of Professor Juniper. The new rival is Hugh, who wants to retrieve a stolen Purrloin from Team Plasma. the player also encounters a few sages from the previous games, such as Rood and Zinzolin.

In battles, the trainer sprites now have animations along with the Pokémon. There are also now 300 Pokémon in the Regional Pokédex, compared to the 156 in Pokemon Black & White (153 not including the 3 Legendary Pokémon that weren't put into the game and could only be obtained via events; Keldeo, Meloetta, and Genesect). This means that there are now an estimated 300 Pokémon that can be caught before challenging the Elite 4 (some Pokémon, such as Legendary Pokémon, may not be accessible until after defeating the Elite 4, or until doing something post-game). When the 156 Pokémon from the Unova region in Pokémon Black & White are subtracted from the 300 Pokémon from the Unova region in Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 (adding in the two new formes of Kyurem), we are left with 144 Pokémon from previous regions. Some of these past-gen Pokémon are known and confirmed, thanks to gameplay/trailers from the Japanese version of Pokémon Black & White 2.
