Since the news broke that a new Pokémon game for either the Wii or 3DS would be revealed soon, speculation on the nature of those games has run rampant. Many fans suspected that this month's CoroCoro magazine would have key information on this release, but they will have to wait a little longer. The only Pokémon news CoroCoro will share in its upcoming edition, to be released on Sunday, is that the following issue, dated June 15, will contain the information about a new game. However, Dengeki DS magazine last month claimed their May 21 issue would reveal the first information on any new game.

Zekrom and Reshiram distribution artwork

In other news, the traditional movie theater giveaway for the new Japanese Pokémon movie has been announced. If attendees bring their DS and a copy of either Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version with them, then they can receive either Zekrom or Reshiram, respectively. The dragon obtained will depend on the cartridge used; players may use this opportunity to obtain the version-opposite dragon in their game, as Zekrom will be distributed to copies of Black and Reshiram to White.
