First U.S. Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 teaser trailer

Gaming is in its golden age, and big and small players alike are maneuvering like kings and queens in A Game of Thrones. Register now for our GamesBeat 2015 event, Oct. 12-Oct.13, where we'll explore strategies in the new world of gaming.

Thursday night, Nintendo revealed the first gameplay trailer for the U.S. installments of Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2. The video features old pocket monsters like Psyduck and Oshawott fighting for new trainers.

Gym leader Roxie, a fan favorite from the Pokémon animated series, makes her first in-game appearance in Black 2/White 2 and is shown strumming her bass guitar during battle. The rest of the action whips by quickly. It is only a 30-second look at the latest in the long-running series, but Pokémon fans are rabid and will likely notice even the smallest of changes.

Pokémon Black 2/White 2 will hit Nintendo DS this fall.
