This month’s CoroCoro has started to leak. In the magazine, it’s revealed that those who pre-book tickets for the movie “The Archdjinni of the Rings – Hoopa” in Japan can participate in a distribution for Arceus. The Pokemon knows the moves Judgment, Blast Burn, Hydro Cannon and Earth Power. Additionally, it comes with the item Silk Scarf.

Arceus will be obtainable by pre-booking tickets between March 7 and July 17. It’s redeemable between June 20 and August 31.

We have a small tidbit about the movie itself as well. There will plenty of legendary Pokemon, including Lugia, Palkia, Giratina, Dialga, Kyurem and Arceus.

By pre-booking, you’ll also receive another legendary Pokemon out of these six revealed for the movie, though the specific six you get one of are not known at the moment.

That’s not all from CoroCoro. It’s also revealed that the Shiny Rayquaza will be distributed through the magazine, and it can be obtained even if players nabbed the one at the World Hobby Fair. Specific details will be announced sometime in the future.


Pokemon as a gaming franchise has been around for nearly two decades. Given its popularity, Pokemon won’t be slowing down any time soon and we’ll continue to see new entries in the franchise.

Where might Pokemon go from here though? Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda won’t give any specifics away, but he did tease to Polygon that he has “some big-picture ideas” for the series.

Masuda said:

There’s probably going to be a lot more games; we might not be able to use the “Gotta catch ’em all” catchphrase anymore [laughs]. Of course, we want to keep creating things that will surprise and delight fans. I don’t think that’s going to change. … I have some big-picture ideas, but I can’t really talk about them.
