To continue promoting the latest Pocket Monsters movie release in Japan, Kid Radar Man (コレエダーマン) returns. He discusses some of the hidden things in the movie that people that have seen it may not have realized when they watched it. He points out that the name of the ending song that plays through the credits of the movie is called Ice Cream Syndrome (アイスクリーム シンドローム). Rocket Gang eats ice cream cones during the ending.

The narrator points out that during the opening title sequence of the movie, there is a mysterious shadow on the left side during the flame sequence. It passes by really fast but they slowed down the video to show that it was actually a shadow of a Pikachu.
