New starters? Check. Massive new legendaries? Check. US release date? Check – kind of.

Three-versus-three Pokemon battles? Triple check.

That's one of several interesting reveals packed into the latest Pokemon Black and White video. As for the other surprises, let's see if we can count 'em all.

- We knew about the new cityscapes, but it seems there's a roller coaster as well. No word on whether the loop-the-loop is a mini-game or a novel way of getting around town.

- The trailer hinted at online features, connecting your Nintendo DS game to your computer.

- Then came the big surprise: 3-vs-3 combat.
