Black and White legendaries revealed
Pokemon Black & White — 14 September, 2010
More details have surfaced about the legendary Pokemon from the upcoming Pokemon Black & White - just 4 days away from release in Japan!! First things first - there will be a total of 156 new Pokemon, taking the total to 649.
There are 9 in-game legendaries - three trios - plus 6 event legendaries. We don't have names or images yet, only types and numbers. Some of the numbering is a bit weird so may not be 100% correct.
Legendary Fighting Trio
- #638 is Steel/Fighting.
- #639 is Rock/Fighting.
- #640 is Grass/Fighting.
Raijin is the Japanese god of thunder and lightning so these Pokemon may be connected with the weather or the elements.
- #641 is pure Flying type, which is a first.
- #642 is Electric/Flying.
- #645 is Ground/Flying.
Like generation IV there will be a dragon trio.
- #643 will be Reshiram, who is Dragon/Fire.
- #644 will be Zekrom, who is Dragon/Electric.
- #646 is Dragon/Ice and likely to be the subject of the "third game" in the Gen V series.
Several of these are likely to be released over Wi-Fi.
- #494 (national) or #000 (Isshu dex) is Victini who is Psychic/Fire.
- Zorua and Zoroark (Dark-types) will be given away at real-life events.
- #647 is Water/Fighting.
- #648 is Normal/Psychic.
- #649 is Bug/Steel.
As for the next couple of weeks, we expect Pokemon details to be known pretty quickly. We'll be updating our Pokedex as and when Pokemon are revealed - so stay tuned!
