New Pokémon Black & White trailer shows battles

See the evolved battle system in action...

Nintendo released more information about Pokémon Black & White's evolved battle system yesterday. Now you can see it in action by watching this new trailer.

The trailer shows the new 3-on-3 battle system which sees two teams of three Pokémon fighting against each other, a first for the series.

This adds an extra level of strategy as Pokémon placement is crucial. A Pokémon in the centre of can attack any of its three opponents while a Pokémon positioned on the left or right of the formation can only attack the Pokémon in the middle of the opposing lineup, or directly in front of it.
