A pre-order bonus is a special gift given to customers who reserve a copy of a game or movie ticket prior to its official release date. This may require an extra deposit. In addition to receiving the game, there are often other bonuses that come along with pre-ordering a game.

Pokémon Colosseum

Those who pre-ordered Pokémon Colosseum also received a Pokémon Colosseum Bonus Disc.

In the Japanese version, the disc contains a Celebi and can only be acquired once all of the 48 Shadow Pokémon have been purified. After it has been transferred to the Colosseum save first, it can be transferred up to 48 times directly to all Japanese Game Boy Advance Pokémon games as long as the player has beaten the Elite Four and saved in a Pokémon Center.

In the American versions it included the Japanese trailer for the aforesaid game, a trailer for Jirachi: Wish Maker and a Jirachi that can be transferred to Ruby and Sapphire. Transferring the Jirachi will fix the Berry glitch.
