Pokémon The Movie: Secrets of the Jungle Facts
The Pokémon Company revealed the following synopsis for the 23rd feature film in the franchise:
Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle tells the story of Koko, a boy raised by Pokémon, and the creation of a new bond between humans and Pokémon. Deep in the jungle, far from any human settlement, lies the Okoya Forest, 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 without ever doubting that she is a Pokémon.
But one day, a chance encounter with Ash and Pikachu leaves Koko with his first human friend. Is it really a Pokémon? Or is it, in fact, a human? When danger threatens the Okoya Forest, the bonds between Pokémon and humans, as well as the love between parents and children, will be put to the test.
Dada Zarude’s form for the video game
On top of that, a special Japan-only Zarude distribution event is also coming up. This is for the “Dada” shape (with the Celebi-inspired cape seen in the movie), and will be available to those who purchase a ticket to see the movie in Japan.
Dada Zarude reaches level 70 with a Choice Scarf equipped. It also has more powerful moves, like Jungle Healing, Hammer Arm, Power Whip, and Energy Ball.
