Still needs more Juniper, Jessie, Adult Misty, and Clair
>Cheren is now a Normal-type Gym Leader, replacing Lenora and giving out the Basic Badge. He is the first Gym Leader while Homika, the Poison-type Gym Leader with the guitar, is the second. Bianca gives you your first Pokemon on behalf of Prof. Juniper.
Hurray for acknowledging your old 'friends'. to some extent... or something. At least the translator is different this time (I think) so maybe all the dialog won't be clunky and awkward this time.
>N has disappeared and nobody knows where he is, including Team Plasma. Team Plasma and the Sages will still be in the game, though in what capacity we do not know yet.
Boo for Cobr- Team Plasma still being in the game along with N.
>PokeWood (Pokemon+Hollywood) will apparently involve filming a movie: you pick a scenario, then fight in several Pokemon battles. Perhaps battling against the mecha Tyranitar is how you film part of your movie.
>As stated yesterday, the "World Tournament" feature allows you to battle past Gym Leaders and Elite Four Champions. So far, Cynthia, Green (Gary), Brock, Misty, Lt. Surge, Erika, Janine, Blaine, Giovanni, Volkner, Steven Stone, and Lance are confirmed participants.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
