A special ticket will be attached to one copy of the January issue of the Japanese magazine CoroCoro, the holder of which will be be given the privilege of receiving copies of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl upon their release date, as well as proposing his or her idea for a new move to be included in the two upcoming games.

This fact can be taken to indicate that the magazine will offer coverage on the said games after a four-month hiatus of focusing on the spin-off Pokémon games; this is further supported by the unveiling of the ninth Pokémon movie's first details, which may include a silhouette of a new Pokémon associated with these games. Even though it is unknown when in 2006 the games will be released, it seems logical to proceed with their advertisement next month.

The January issue of CoroCoro will be published Dec. 15, as will Volume 6 of the Pokémon Wonderland magazine. With this in mind, it is safe to expect more coverage than in previous months.
