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.
