Pokemon Black Version and Pokemon White Version feature new Pokemon that players can catch, train and battle as they progress through the game, and some Pokemon can only be caught in one version of the game. For example, the Legendary Pokemon Reshiram can only be caught in Pokemon Black Version, while the Legendary Pokemon Zekrom can only be caught in Pokemon White Version. Additionally, the two games feature different areas for the first time in the series, with the game world of Pokemon Black Version featuring a unique metropolitan area called Black City, and a lush, green area named White Forest only found in Pokemon White Version. Pokemon Black Version and Pokemon White Version also mark the first time in a Pokemon video game that the seasons will change in the game world. Certain Pokemon appear more frequently during different seasons, and players can only access some areas during a specific season.
In battle, there are two further methods of battle; Triple Battle & Rotation Battles. Both of which have you send out three Pokemon at once in order to battle with varying mechanics within it.
In local wireless and over WiFi, there is also the Miracle Shooter which is a function that allows you to use items during battle, but at a cost. In battles, the camera is also dynamic, zooming in and out on the Pokemon while they move in a variety of animations
Much like how Gold & Silver introduced the concept of the Day/Night cycle, Pokemon Black & White introduce the concept of Seasons. These seasons change a variety of factors including Wild Pokemon, location aesthetics and even the background music. The seasons rotate at the start of every month so you don't need to wait long until the next one.
The games also introduce a variety of new multiplayer aspects including the Live Caster, a DSi & 3DS exclusive feature, that allows for video chat with you and your friends.
The games can now connect to the Internet for access to a site called the Pokemon Global Link.
The games also have the High Link feature which has you visit a friend's game and complete certain missions in order to get various power ups which last a short time in the main game.
The game's story features you having to stop Team Plasma, a team who, unlike previous teams, want to do good and intend to stop what they perceive the slavery of Pokemon caused by trainers. In addition to this, you also have to travel the region in order to get 8 badges once more.
