Several randomly picked subscribers of the Japanese magazine CoroCoro — in addition to the webmaster of the English-language site PokéBeach — have been allowed to view the 12th Pokémon movie in advance of its July 18 release date. People who went to the screening have reported they saw a sneak preview of the upcoming games Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver and the next Pokémon movie — featuring Ho-Oh and Lugia.

A new commercial for Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver was shown prior to the distribution of Arceus. The commercial showed Entei, Raikou and Suicune, as well as the Red Gyarados, in 3-D. Previously reported game footage was also shown.

A teaser trailer featuring Ho-Oh and Lugia fighting each other was shown after the movie, revealing that the legendary Pokémon of Johto will appear in the 13th Pokémon movie that will premiere in 2010.
