Pokémon: Arceus To The Conquering of Space-Time is the world record holder for the animated motion picture with the most advance ticket sales. Before it opened in Japan on July 18, the movie had already pre-sold 2,384,198 tickets.

This is the 12th animated feature since the first Pokémon movie, Mewtwo's Counterattack, hit Japanese theaters in July 1998.
