In this new animated adventure, a troop of the Mythical Pokémon Zarude live deep within the Forest of Okoya where they maintain a strict rule that forbids outsiders from entering their territory. Elsewhere in the jungle lives Koko, a human boy raised by a lone Zarude who left the troop. Koko has grown up never doubting that he is a Zarude, but one day, a chance meeting with Ash and Pikachu leaves Koko with his first human friend. Is Koko truly a Pokémon? Or is he, in fact, a human? When danger threatens the jungle, the bonds between Pokémon and humans—and the love between parent and child—will be put to the test.
Prior to the film’s release, you can add Dada Zarude and a shiny Celebi to your watch list by signing up for the Trainer’s Club newsletter by September 25th. Pokémon Company, Niantic and Netflix are also planning a special Pokémon Go event linked to the film’s release. They soon promised to share more information on that front.
Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle, the latest Pokémon animated feature, is coming to Netflix on October 8, 2021.
