Officially revealed to the public on May 17, 2012 on the Pokémon YouTube Channel, it was originally leaked a day before on the same channel. A complete version of the trailer incorporating additional footage that depicts Rosa battling Cheren was released on DVD at TSUTAYA on July 13, 2012, and later released on YouTube on August 10, 2012.
The dubbed version was released on YouTube and Pokémon.com on August 8, 2012. The dubbed version includes the additional footage of Rosa battling Cheren.
A thick fog appears, and a faded silhouette begins to walk towards the camera. As the figure gets closer, it is revealed to be N, who stops and asks which path the player will travel, as an unseen Pokémon flies overhead and roars.
The titles for Black 2 and White 2 appear on the screen.
The scene changes to a flock of Swanna flying over Aspertia City. Nate and Hugh are seen running through the city, on their way to collect their first Pokémon. They climb the flight of stairs to the look out where they meet Bianca. She's relieved to see them and presents them with their choice of Poké Balls containing their starter Pokémon. Nate stares at Tepig's ball confidently as it gleams in the sunlight.
In a scene exclusive to the English dub and complete Japanese version, Rosa faces off against Cheren in a Gym battle at the Aspertia Gym. Rosa stretches in preparation for her battle while her Serperior slithers up behind her. The camera then adjusts to reveal Cheren adjusting his tie, accompanied by his Stoutland. Rosa commands Serperior to use Hyper Beam on Stoutland, but it protects itself. Cheren has Stoutland lunge at Serperior with Bite, but Rosa has it counter with Slam, sending Stoutland flying into the ground. Stoutland gets up with difficulty, and Rosa uses to opportunity to launch a Frenzy Plant. Stoutland dodges the attack and jumps along the roots, then launches a Hyper Beam, destroying the roots and creating a huge explosion. However, Serperior protects it and its Trainer with Protect. Rosa then comments that she is just getting started.
Nate is then shown with Colress in the Castelia City square, where Colress explains how Team Plasma sought to liberate Pokémon from their Trainers and that he believes differently.
Nate then appears walking into the Nimbasa Gym with his Emboar by his side, and Elesa is shown waiting for him on a stage. She questions whether his Pokémon or her own Pokémon will prevail, which angers Emboar. She then throws off her coat and challenges him to a match, as fireworks are set off around her.
Some Wingull are shown flying over a ship, where Nate, Hugh, and Cheren are shown surrounded by Team Plasma Grunts. The leader of the group of Team Plasma Grunts praises the trio's progress, subsequently inviting them to forfeit because they are outnumbered. Hugh states that he is getting angered by Team Plasma, and Cheren remarks that he is annoyed at the villain's arrogance. Hugh places his hand on Nate's shoulder and asks to lend him his power. The leading Team Plasma Grunt then orders her Seviper to use Bite, and Nate reacts by having his Arcanine use Bite as well. Arcanine leaps into the air and bites down on Seviper's neck, and then tosses it into the air. Hugh then has his Samurott use Ice Beam on Seviper, causing a mist to cover the ship.
The scene transitions to show one of the Shadow Triad leaping across rooftops in a frozen town as Nate chases after him from the ground with his Lucario. The Shadow Triad member then leaps on top of a large pillar of ice, and the protagonist orders Lucario to use Aura Sphere. The Shadow Triad member then stands up unharmed, and the other two members appear from above as well with a Bisharp. He holds up an artifact and tells Nate that his efforts are futile, and that nothing will stop them from achieving their ambitions, and they disappear.
Black Kyurem is then shown launching an Electric-type attack, and White Kyurem is shown performing a Fire-type attack. The two Pokémon fly towards each other and transition into the boxart covers for Black 2 and White 2, and then the screen fades.
