The first hint of what could be the first Generation V Pokémon to be revealed appeared on Thursday evening's broadcast of Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl. A feature on the 12th movie after DP105 showed Pikachu alongside a new Pokémon covered by a graphic. A voice-over by Pokémon anime director Kunihiko Yuyama said the mysterious Pokémon is a yellow Electric-type.

The preview also showed pictures of movie locations inspired by real locations in Greece. A new animated teaser segment showed Dialga, Palkia and Giratina rising out of a body of water and then attacking a glowing object in the sky.
