The Japanese TV show Oha Suta has revealed new information on some Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver in-game events.

The two Pichu in Ilex Forest

The template for the level, HP, and name of Pokémon in battle has been changed back into white, but its shape has changed from rectangular to trapezoidal shape. A new battle theme can also be heard.

When the player goes to the Ilex Forest Shrine with the Pikachu-colored Pichu as their partner, the Notched-ear Pichu will be seen jumping from behind of the shrine. Then an old man arrives, explaining why the Notched-ear Pichu appeared.

A battle featuring Igglybuff and Marill against the Notched-ear Pichu and the Pikachu-colored Pichu is seen for the first time. The Notched-ear Pichu is a level 30 female with the moves Volt Tackle, Helping Hand, Swagger and Pain Split, Misdreavus's signature move. It has a different sprite compared to a regular Pichu, with spike on its ears and has a different pose.

It also confirms that the Arceus players can receive at movie theaters will unlock a snowy and dark ruins called 「シントいせき」 Shinto Ruins (presumably one of the new locations shown Johto). This will only occur when it is traded from Diamond, Pearl and Platinum and brought to Ruins of Alph as the player's partner Pokémon. Cynthia can be found waiting inside the ruins for the player's arrival. Several Unown are seen together with Arceus, when it creates an egg of either Dialga, Palkia or Giratina. Their appearance is somewhat similar to their appearance in the third Pokémon movie.
