This month's issue of CoroCoro Comic has revealed that Arceus and six Legendary Pokémon will be distributed to promote the 18th Pokémon movie, The Archdjinni of the Rings: Hoopa.

Arceus will be available via serial code to players of Pokémon X and Y or Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire who preorder tickets to The Archdjinni of the Rings: Hoopa in Japan. Movie ticket preorders run from March 7 to July 17, 2015; tickets can be preordered at 7-Eleven, Ito-Yokado, Æon, Æon Supercenter, Toys "R" Us, Apita, Piago, AL.PLAZA, Heiwadou, Daiei, Fuji, Pokémon Center stores, Pokémon Stores, and cinemas showing Pokémon movies. The Arceus code can be redeemed from March 7 to August 31, 2015. The Arceus is at level 100, knows the moves Judgement, Blast Burn, Hydro Cannon and Earth Power, and is holding a random Plate or a Silk Scarf. A game can have multiple Arceus codes redeemed on it, but each code can only be used once.

Additionally, by taking a movie 18 ticket to one of various stores, the player can receive one of six Legendary Pokémon. Although it is not specified which six, CoroCoro hints that the Pokémon are featured in an image on that page; the referenced image contains Lugia, Palkia, Zekrom, Primal Groudon, Kyurem, Regigigas, Giratina, Dialga, Reshiram, Primal Kyogre, and Shiny Mega Rayquaza. These Pokémon can be obtained from June 20 to August 31, 2015.
