It looks like Pokemon fans in the west won’t have to wait very long to witness the new mythical Pokemon Zarude in movie theatres!
The Pokemon Company International has announced that the Pokemon Coco movie will be heading west as Pokemon The Movie: Secrets Of The Jungle. The localized film will be premiering some time in 2021.
Check out the official trailer below:
“Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle” tells the story of Koko, a young boy raised by Pokémon, and the creation of a new bond between humans and Pokémon. Deep in the jungle, far from any human settlement, is the Forest of Okoya—a Pokémon paradise forbidden to outsiders and protected by a strict code of rules. In this jungle lives Koko, a human boy who has been raised as a Pokémon by the Mythical Pokémon Zarude.
Koko has grown up never doubting that he is a Pokémon. But one day, a chance meeting with Ash and Pikachu leaves Koko with his first human friend. Is he truly a Pokémon? Or is he, in fact, a human? When danger threatens the Forest of Okoya, the bonds between Pokémon and human—as well as the love between parent and child—will be put to the test.”
