Pokemon Adventures: Black 2 & White 2 manga series picks up the story two years after the defeat of Team Plasma. After the team’s defeat, Trainer Black was sucked into the Light Stone along with Legendary Pokemon Reshiram. Although defeated, Team Black hasn’t given up and appears to be back with a vengeance. Back to its wicked ways, Team Plasma now has ways to control Pokemons that do not belong to them. Using wicked technology stealthily, the team can even manipulate Pokemons in the wild, creating some serious problems.

The new leader of Team Plasma, who calls himself Colress, has significantly stepped up his offensive tactics. Not only has Colress begun attacking the peaceful Unova region, the technology he wields can control and manipulate Pokemons. As expected, Team Plasma and Colress believe in using their powers, and the powers of other Pokemon they control through their wicked inventions, for evil instead of good.

Fortunately, a new young hero, and Looker of the International Police, is already hot on their pursuit. In the previous edition, the Looker was seen attempting to arrest the Seven Sages of Team Plasma. Moreover, a complex algorithm that can block the signals that control the wild Pokemons exists, and it is stored on a simple memory card.

Although the memory card and the software stored on it can render Team Plasma’s technology ineffective, its whereabouts continue to elude the hero. Will the hero be able to secure the memory card and use the technology to prevent Team Plasma from gaining control over Pokemons that are not in their possession or will the evil team beat him to it and destroy the only thing that can stop them?
