- 1st prize: DSi and a copy of Pokémon Ranger: Locus of Light
- 2nd prize: Johto Pokédex
- 3rd prize: Copy of Pokémon HeartGold & SoulSilver Music Super Complete
- Runners up will receive five packs of Reviving Legends
In addition, every entrant will receive a limited edition set of "Zorua of Illusions" and "Zoroark of Illusions" cards.
The winning card designs will be featured as promotions for the thirteenth movie and will be released during August.
