A young athlete whose running days might be behind her, a compulsive liar, a shy researcher, a bitter old woman, and a little girl with a big secret—the only thing they have in common is a small town by the sea. Every year, the townspeople gather to celebrate the Legendary Pokémon Lugia, who brings the wind that saved the town from destruction many years ago. The festival is a time for celebration, with a Pokémon Catching Race and a ceremonial flame burning brightly to summon Lugia. But when a series of incidents threatens not just the festival, but all the people and Pokémon who call the town home, it’s going to take more than just Ash and Pikachu to save the day. Will these people be able to put aside their differences and work together to rescue their town? Or will it all end in destruction?

The March 2018 edition of CoroCoro revealed that the movie's special distribution to Generation VII games in Japan would be a Lugia. It is at level 100 and possesses its Hidden Ability Multiscale, as well as the moves Aeroblast, Defog, Tailwind and Hurricane, the latter of which it cannot normally learn. It is nicknamed "Wind Lugia" in reference to its role in the Wind Festival in the film. It was distributed via serial codes that were distributed from April 13 to July 12, 2018 by pre-booking tickets to the movie, with the codes themselves being redeemable until September 30.

The June 2018 edition of CoroCoro revealed that Zeraora would be distributed at showings of the movie from July 13 to September 30. It is at level 50 and possesses the moves Plasma Fists, Thunder Punch, Close Combat, and Thunder, and holds an Air Balloon. Its stats match the Zeraora shown in a special Battle Video in April. A disc for the Pokémon Ga-Olé arcade game was also distributed.
