In Pokémon Get TV 76
, Yukito and Robin head to 7-Eleven, asking if the viewers had received their event Arceus yet
. Robin says he's there to receive it today and the two of them explain how it's done. Yukito shows the special pre-order ticket and present guide you need to purchase first and Robin adds that you then need to take your X/Y/OR/AS game to a place where you can connect to the Internet. Yukito says the 7-Spot in all 7-Eleven can be used for this, which is very handy, since you can get the Arceus right after buying the ticket. To get the Arceus, you then just choose Mystery Gift from the title menu, enter the present code found on your ticket, start the game and talk to the woman in blue at the Pokémon Center to receive your Arceus. Very easy. The Arceus is level 100 and knows the move Judgment, which only it can learn.
