    This fellow on YouTube translated all the Japanese text in the most recent trailer into Russian and English:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPn_CYk9r7o&feature=g-u-u&context=G2c8d585FUAAAAAAAAAA

    In the Nimbasa shot (1:16), which I assume to be in the same sequence of dialogue as this photo:
    [​IMG]

    -the rival says, "but there's no way I would let you steal other people's Pokémon."

    These guys in black are definitely the new baddies, wouldn't you agree?

    Seen the image and I actually think we are seeing that back of whatever Pokemon that is. Anyone able to get photos of backs of Pokes and
    compare?

    Edit: Seems like we are either receiving a messed up sprite on purpose to hide something or there may be a slim chance of a new Pokemon/

    ITT: Overanalysis of a generic silhouette that may be little more than a placeholder image.

    That is archeops....It has that weird long neck, the bent wings and the "head crest" is just some tail feathers....I figured it out in like 3 seconds...

    You'd think so but if you look at Archeops, he doesn't look like that even in Pokedex 3D. It's missing a lot of key features Archeops has and Archeop's neck is nowhere near that long nor are any oh it's body or wings that smooth.

    That silhouette is no fuzzy-derpy-snake-bird.

    Yeah, it's not a new pokemon. It's probably Articuno flying away.

    Crazy Pokebeach disturbing the peace with their speculations.

    ^^^

    Just noting that those bumps on the wings that got us so kerfuffled? I'm betting that's just distortion from whatever that yellow ring is doing (notice how they appear right around the ring?). Probably due to some 3D effects that can't be conveyed properly via a flat image. Also, my bet is on Articuno flying away. However, there are a few things that don't match up right, like those tufts on the side of it's head and the fact the tail is blunt instead of pointed. There's also the fact that the crest looks too thin and tall to be Articuno's but all these things could be distortions due to it being a 3D silhouette, that's almost certainly animated as well. Maybe Articuno's feathers on it's face are fluffing outwards a bit because it's flying or something, who knows. I'm going to look through all the flying types in the game and see if it matches up with any of them anyway though XD

    I agree with Jimera0; I zoomed in a lot on each of the "wing bumps" and there seems to be a slight difference in color there, as if the bumps are not actually part of the silhouette. The wings seem to be actually straight at that point.

    B-b-but.. The bird has ugly fat legs while Articuno doesn't. OK, it's probably just the designer too lazy to give a fuck to DETAILS...

    Or we are over thinking this and it is a cyborg Pokemon like the Tyranitar.

    Hmmm, maybe it's just some mini-game thing, and it transfers Pokèmon from 4th to 5th gen? Perhaps it's a newer Pokè-transfer?

    EDIT: Phew, no longer on 666 posts. :)

    There would be no difference between a front and back silhouette. *facepalm*

    But then why the tiny details on the side of its head and...
    Ah. This picture makes no freakin sense wth nintendo.

    So I'm not sure if it's interesting to note that US Gamestops are accepting pre-orders for B2W2, with a tentative release date of Oct. 2nd (not sure the exact day, but I'm sure it had a 2 in it), but I guess I'll mention it anyways.

    Interesting. I do wish the game releases in october instead of the usual 6 months wait(which would mean in december).

    October 2nd is the first tuesday of the month, it's probably just a placeholder.

    My initial impulse among seeing the picture was Archeops. After coming to this thread, I thought it could be Articuno. After looking at the picture even closer now, I think it could also be Pigeot with that streak behind its head held up.
