This downloadable Nintendo 3DS title allows Nintendo 3DS owners to catch their favourite Pokémon, including some very rare ones, via the Nintendo 3DS cameras, using motion control and augmented-reality technology and transfer them into Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2.”

According to the release, both games feature the story of the Unova region (from Black and White) but 2 years after the events of the games’ predecessors. New locations have been added, such as Virbank City, home to the Pokéstar Studios which allow players to star in their own movie with their Pokemon.

“Bianca is now the assistant to Professor Juniper, helping her with Pokémon research and Cheren is now a Gym Leader and a teacher at a school in Aspertia City – the starting location for this adventure.” – according to the release.
