At the time of this revelation there had still been no word on the American CN premiere date for the film, the DVD release, and so forth.
Now, thanks to Pokemon.com and the launch of their Arceus and the Jewel of Life Subsite, we have a bit more information to go on.
For one, the special Pichu who appears in the 12th movie has indeed been dubbed the "Spiky-Eared Pichu". Second, the Arceus subsite dates the first US Cartoon Network showing to be taking place on November 20th, with the DVD release following at some point next year in the spring (exact release date still unknown). The website also released an official trailer allowing people to hear "Ark-ee-us" verbally said for their listening pleasure.
As usual, the subsite contains a brief storyline summary, character bios for all of the major characters (and Pokémon) who appear in the movie, and some downloadable extras for fans. They've also added a "Legacy" section that ties in the first two movies of the Sinnoh trilogy. Not counting the continuously looping BG music - which can thankfully be shut-off if you choose - it's a pretty nice site and worth checking out if you're interested.
Remember to check your local TV listings for exact air times, but here's hoping everyone enjoys the movie.
