PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond is the sequel to PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure, it features Pokémon from Black and White, and stars Pikachu, Oshawott, Snivy, & Tepig. The four must go solve a mystery to save the world, all while making & playing with new friends they meet along the way. It's like Twitter... for Pokémon. But with a lot more black holes.

Early Maps

Found in the Field folder are some early versions of maps.

PokePark2-Map1.jpg

Here is the first map, it seems to be an early version of Seasong Beach.

PokePark2-Map2.jpg

An early version of what appears to be Cove Town.

PokePark2-Map3.png

An early version of Windmill Way in the Arbor Area.

PokePark2-Map4.jpg

An early map for what appears to be Verdant Court in the Arbor Area.

PokePark2-Map5.jpg

Another early map of what appears to be Verdant Court.

PokePark2-Map6.jpg

An unpolished version of what's most likely Rockridge Fort in the Crag Area.

PokePark2-Map7.jpg

An early version of the Colosseum in the Crag Area.

PokePark2-Map8.png

An early map version of the Train Depot in the Tech Area.

PokePark2-Map9.jpg

Early version of Wish Park.

PokePark2-Map11.png

An early map for the cave in the Colosseum (specifically for the version that is used for Rhyperior's Skill Game).

PokePark2-Map12.jpg

An early version of the fighting arena that you fight Coffagrigus in.

PokePark2-Map16.png

An early version of an unknown map. It somewhat resembles the background of the Darkrai boss fight.

Unused Objects

PokePark2-Map15.png

Some strange floating spheres labeled as FdTemplatePokemon.brres in the files for the Flight of Fancy Attraction. They were likely used to test the collision detection that was put on the gems, since they're modeled at a similar size to those.

PokePark-Map10.png

A strange yellow plane.

Test Maps

PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond stores all of its maps in 2 .dac files in the Field folder. The names of the two files in each set are the same, outside of one having "Res" at the end and the other having "Dat" at the end.

PokePark2-Map13.png

A test map containing some basic objects and textures. There's a few circular platforms, one with a guard rail and one without, and one of these causes the camera to be locked in a weird position. A stationary, uninteractable Mankey is found in the map as well, and while he can be knocked around, he cannot be talked to.

Fd0002

PokePark2-Map17.png

Another test map that was likely used for testing terrain. Like a lot of the unused maps, the textures that make up the surfaces are all simple test textures comprised of 4 squares with either A, B, C, or D in the middle. All of these textures go unused in the final game as well.

Fd0003

PokePark2-Map14.jpg

Another test map containing some letters all over the terrain, however there's a little more to it than that. Textures exist for some of the drums found in the first game, PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure, so it's likely that the Obstacle Hop Skill Game from that game was going to be tested here.

PokePark2-Map19.png

This one is pretty interesting; it's one of only 2 test maps to have a proper working skybox, as the others require one to be loaded in separately. This is by far the map with the most unused textures, with about 30 making up the entirety of the map. Some of these textures have different names on them, possibly suggesting that this was originally created to be an event test of some sort, however the large number of squares might instead suggest that it was originally supposed to be a real map before being turned into a test one.

Fd0094

PokePark2-Map18.png

Seems to be an early version of the Tournament map. This one also has a working skybox, and just uses the same texture for it that's found in the previous map. The skybox is strangely big compared to the colosseum-like structure in the middle, especially compared to the other maps in the game... it's currently unknown why this is.

Unused Textures

While on the subject of maps, it's important to know that the test stages found in the game’s files almost exclusively use unused textures. They’ve all been organized here by which stage they appear in, with one final section dedicated to the ones that appear multiple times. Many of these textures, like the ones used in the final game, have the option to appear in lower quality at a differing number of levels. The number of levels each one has can be viewed by hovering over the image (for example, if the quality can only be dropped 1 time, then it will be listed with 2 levels).

Fd0004

Note: Unlike the other test stages, this one has a few textures that are used in the final game. There are 3 textures for magma, labeled as Fd0004Magma01, Fd0004Magma01ID, & Fd0004Magma02ID, that are used in the final game (albeit with different filenames) in the Crag Area. There are also two sand textures (Fd0004Suna & Fd0004Tuchi) that are used in the final game, and these used counterparts also have different filenames.

Skybox

The skybox model found in the last 2 unused rooms, simply labeled as "sky".

GimmickTaxiStopA

GkFdAr02Zn01Stall02.png

An unused texture found with the Driftblim Stop's textures in GimmickTaxiStopA.

Unused Graphics

ピカチュウ

"Pikachu" in Japanese. This is found in the Archive folder under PrepareMessageRes.dac, which holds information for activating the Wii's pause menu.

やめる

Some more Japanese text, this one saying "stop".

PokéPark 2: Electric Boogaloo

Labeled as At02RuleS03 in the file AtRuleTex.dac, which is a file in the Archive folder that holds the screenshots used during the Attraction introductory menus. The icons that show the motion control inputs all appear to be unfinished compared to the one used in the final game, appearing much more rudimentary (this is especially visible with the different diamonds). Also, you can tell that it’s from a Japanese version of the game since there’s no comma in the score counter.

Unused Audio

PokéPark 2 has a file system that's not exactly the best at saving space. Lots of files are repeated multiple times in the code, especially when it come to the sounds, to the point where there can be 5 or 6 copies of the same sound found in different .awb files.

Unused Dot

An unused dot sound that appears in the sound files. This unused dot is a perfect example of the repetitiveness of the sound system. It appears multiple times with different names, such as S_AT_02_POKE_VOICE_streamfiles.awb, S_Fd0301_streamfiles.awb, S_Fd0602_streamfiles.awb, & S_Fd0701_streamfiles.awb. Interestingly, this same file appears in the first game as well, albeit with a different filename.

Drum Riffs

These two drum riffs appear multiple times in the files, but are most interestingly found with the other music tracks for the skill games. One is just an extended version of the other.

Unused Motif

A short motif that's not seen in the final game. Who knows what this could be for?

Silence

Another sound file, this one is found in the file "S_Field_BGM_streamfiles.awb". It's 8 seconds of pure silence. No reason for it to exist, really. Fittingly enough, this is one of the few audio files that's not connected to a cutscene that isn't repeated elsewhere in the sound folder.
