Leaked images from the April issue of CoroCoro have revealed information on the Ranger missions and the Pokémon to be given away to commemorate the 13th Pokémon movie, Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark..

For the first time, shiny legendary Pokémon will be available as movie event Pokémon. Shiny Raikou, Entei or Suicune will be given to Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, or SoulSilver players who have pre-ordered tickets to the 13th movie. Each of them will know moves they cannot normally learn through level up or by move tutor: Zap Cannon, Flare Blitz and Sheer Cold, respectively. They will be available for download from June 18 to Aug. 31 only at selected stores, such as Pokémon Center. Other information like their OTs, level, and whether they will trigger an in-game event in the games are currently unknown.

Another Pokémon is speculated to be distributed at movie theaters, as much as how Arceus, Shaymin and Darkrai were available during the premiere of the movies they were featured in. Also, there is a hidden event involving Celebi in HeartGold and SoulSilver where the Time Travel Pokémon takes the player back in time to encounter Sakaki.

The scans also mention the ability of Zorua and Zoroark to disguise into other forms or Pokémon, as the previous issue of CoroCoro has stated. It shows the scenes from the trailer of the 13th movie where Zoroark disguises itself from Entei to Raikou then Suicune, as well as to Satoshi, and transforms to its original form. However, the magazine promises to reveal more about the fifth generation games in their next issue, which means news concerning the new games should be revealed within the next few weeks.

Through Ranger Net, players may download Two new missions involving Giratina in its Origin Forme and Arceus via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection for Pokemon Ranger: Tracks of Light, as revealed by the scans. These missions can be unlocked on April 15.

According to the magazine, the next issue, May 2010 CoroCoro, will focus on the Generation V games, revealing all sorts of information regarding the upcoming games.

Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark will premiere in Japan on July 10, while Pokémon Ranger: Locus of Light will be released March 6 in Japan.
