The game releases in Japan in a few short weeks.

Further details for Pokémon Black and White 2 have emerged just weeks ahead of the game's Japanese release.

Foremost, the magazine CoroCoro details Keldeo's "Resolution Form," which looks mostly similar to the original Keldeo with the exception of a long blue horn, a longer mane, and some other small details. To change the form of Keldeo, the player needs to have Terrakion, Virizion, and Cobalion in the forest near Sangi Town. Its appearance appears to change when it learns Sacred Sword. Keldeo's Resolution Form is 48.5kg and 1.4m.

Version differences were also touched upon. A staple in Pokémon games, version-exclusive creatures make a return. So far, Magby, Magmar, Magmortar, Buneary, and Lopunny have become confirmed exclusives for Black 2, while Elekid, Electabuzz, Electivire, Skitty, and Delcatty are exclusive to White 2. In addition, a certain cave differs between versions—one is water-based, while the other is magma-based. Black City and White Forest also return from Black and White.

The recently revealed Join Avenue and Fes Mission features also have updated information. One Fes mission can be activated in Castelia City if the player shows someone a Meloetta. The mission, called "A Great Berry Search Adventure," has the player searching for berries in Unova, and lasts three minutes. Another mission is called "Search for Audino."

Not much has been revealed regarding Join Avenue, but CoroCoro shows an image of the player at a shop where an item is being sold. Called "Gambare A Lunch," the item increases the EVs of a Pokémon.

The next bit of information concerns Pokémon Dream Radar, with the reveal that Dream Orbs found in the game can be used to power up your capture device, and that Porygon will be found in the game.

On the same topic, an item has finally been fully confirmed that can change the forms of Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus from their Sacred Beast forms to their Incarnation forms. Called the Reflecting Mirror, it can only be found by taking a captured Landorus from Dream Radar to a specific area of the game. The beasts also gain new abilities in their new forms: Tornadus has Regenerator, Thundurus has Volt Absorb, and Landorus has Intimidate.

Further minor details were also shown. Perhaps the most notable: the return of PokéTransfer, allowing all the previous DS games to transfer Pokémon to Black and White 2. Next, Elesa's gym changes from its appearance in Black and White to that of a fashion show. And lastly, there's further confirmation that cities have vastly changed since Black and White.

Pokémon Black and White 2 release in Japan on June 23.

The most exciting thing is that Tornadus and the others gain new abilities! Man if every Pokemon get's a brand new ability I will be very pleased.
