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 Suikun 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 by leveling up, TM or move tutor: Electromagnetic Cannon, Flare Drive and Absolute Zero, respectively. They will be available for download from June 18 to Aug. 31 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, most likely Celebi, 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 promised to tackle on this issue. It shows the scenes from the trailer of the 13th movie where Zoroark disguises itself from Entei to Raikou then Suikun, as well as to Satoshi, and transforms to its original form.

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: Locus 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.
