Black Kyurem and White Kyurem Have Official Types and More

By Kevin McMinn On Mar 30 2012 12:12 PM

Some important information on the new Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version sequels, Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2, have surfaced. The mascots for the two new Pokémon games, Black Kyurem and White Kyurem, have received their official Pokémon types. To our surprise, I think we can all say that we're a bit "shocked" at what's been revealed today.

For starters, I published an article about two weeks ago that revealed the official box art for the upcoming Pokémon titles.  As you can see below, it appears as though electricity is streaming from Black Kyurem's body, while fire engulfs White Kyurem's body. Were these unofficial box arts, or does it go further beyond...further than we think?

Strangely, yet very stunning, the above box art displays Black Kyurem and White Kyurem during their state of "overdrive." Overdrive occurs when their emotions are being worked up. While they're in this state, Black Kyurem becomes known as Sparkling Blue Black Kyurem, while White Kyurem becomes known as Burning Red White Kyurem. Confused yet? I'm starting to get there. Let's move along to their official types.

As recently discovered on Amazon of Japan, the types, along with their height and weight can be seen on newly released hard cases for the 3DS. They're both listed as being Dragon/ Ice type, which I can understand. Black Kyurem appears to be 3.3m in height and weighs in at 325kg. White Kyurem is listed as 3.6m tall and weighs 325kg as well.

I've searched the Amazon of Japan website myself and found the following images. It took me about 30 minutes of sifting through seventy (that's right) pages of items in the "3DS" category to find as many high-quality images as I could. The below images are 1500 x 1500 pixels. I did the best I could to provide the best images for everyone. They're rather large in file size so try to be patient when you click on them. I think we're one of the only sites with this much information on the recent news. We're also hours behind because of it. Check these out!

I just *hope* they start announcing some news on the game play for BW2. Since it's Blue Black Kyurem and Red White Kyurem, my friend thinks the games are going to have a tie in with Hoenn because red=ruby and blue=sapphire. I think Bulbapedia's twitter said this weeks Pokemon Smash is supposed to announce news this week and another source said some new information is supposed to be released April 8th or 18th, I can't really recall. >.<;
Im not suprised at the typing of the kyurems.. i heard they learn some sweet new moves though!
