A trio of surprise items awaits the dedicated Pokémon trainer who attempts to catch them all. In previous series entries, if you completed the Pokédex, you were awarded with a diploma from the in-game professors. Not that we don’t like accolades, but this always seemed a bit anticlimactic. That’s changed in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2:
- Users who see all Unova region Pokémon will earn a license to capture Pokémon in a special nature sanctuary with non-Unova creatures and a shiny level 60 Haxorus.
- Those who catch all Unova region Pokémon will earn the Round Charm, which increases the rate of appearance of Pokémon eggs at the day care.
- Trainers who completely fill out the National Pokédex will get the Shining Charm, which increases the appearance of Shiny Pokémon.
These new items will only benefit the already super-dedicated, but those are probably the people Nintendo wants to keep happy. Fans who spend time breeding or attempt to build a team of rare Shiny Pokémon should get a lot out of these items.
Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 will hit the U.S. in fall 2012 for the Nintendo DS.
