    One thing I hope happens: more in-game Xtransciever conversations. Maybe from the Day Care Couple and the Medal Man, at the very least? I'd like to see it serve a similar function to the Pokegear phone from Johto.

    So TVTropes will point out that genetics is actually a thing and children like to imitate their role models? I thought we all knew that.
    What I meant to say is that TV Tropes specifically mentioned that the BW mom looks a lot like Hilda, and now the BW2 mom looks a lot like the female PC there. The male PCs only got the hair color resemblance, it looks like.
    The PC characters both look vaguely like each other. Same face, different coloured hair. The only PC's that remotely look different post RSE are HgSs trainers. People are simply fitting in what they want to see given ambiguous images.

    If we're assuming hairstyle = fictional genetics, the mom also has her hair standing up like the male PC. So the mom has hair standing up in the form of a bun. An ambiguous enough hair style that people can fit it in with both trainers, but there seems to be a habit for people to look for "genetic resemblances" between same-gender characters.

    The difference between the Pokegear and Xtransciever is that you can ignore the Pokegear and still know who's calling. If they're going to do a cut scene every time there's a damn egg, then this would be a terrible idea. Given there's two screens, you'd think you'd be able to answer your Xtransciever while still walking and doing your own stuff in the top screen, but you can't.

    Meh, I hope not. Xtransciever conversations are a pain -_-

    I guess it could be in the same vein that Cynthia is still referred to as Sinnoh Champion though.

    The rival’s hatred of Team Plasma is due to having had his Purloin stolen from him. It was a present from his little sister.
    Conflicting translations, Pokejungle is saying the Purloin was Rival's and his sister gave it to him.

    Anyone can shed light on this?

    I'm pretty sure the yellow text below the screenshot translates to 'a present to his little sister' and not 'a present from his little sister'. So the Purrloin belongs to his little sister.

    She's better off without it, lol.

    Its cute act is a ruse. When victims let down their guard, they find their items taken. It attacks with sharp claws.
    Team Plasma is doing her a favor.

    Looking directly at the pics, it seems that he was never called champion at all in the Dengeki coverage, only "Alder" five times.

    That's shown as part of a picture saying what could happen if you run out of money, not a starting amount.

    Well I certainly didn't expect Shizui to be the 8th GL, I thought that the 8th would be Drayden. Hmmm... Seems a bit odd, but it should work. I wonder what Drayden's new team will be.

    Oh I see, thanks for clarifying on that. I was confused on it since the Bulba article called him the Champion in it.

    ‘Pokemon Black 2′ Appears on 2ch (June 20th, 2012)

    Doesn't look like any of the old leaders got a redesign :/

    So much for them claiming "they gave it their all"

    Rival's default name is apparently "Hue".

    Hope the dub keeps it as Hugh.

    Well, according to Serebii, the Xtransciever is going to be used more, somewhat like the Pokegear. You can call mom about your location, Juniper to rate your Pokedex, Bianca will evaluate team happiness and Cheren will tell you about the types and abilities of your team.

    Hugh? Not crazy about that name, but since you can re name the rival, I guess it's fine, though I usually just choose the default name.

    I don't think I like the rival's default name, either. But it looks okay if spelled as Hyuu...nah maybe not. I feel like they could've done better with his name. Oh well, I was going to name him MEWTWO anyways.
