Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle and Zarude distribution announced!

The latest Pokémon movie has been announced as Secrets of the Jungle in English and will debut in 2021.

As the 23rd animated Pokémon film, “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.

To celebrate the news, as well as Zarude’s appearance in the TCG expansion Vivid Voltage, fans will be able to receive this Pokémon through a serial code distribution. You must sign up for the Pokémon Trainer Club email by November 20 and a code will arrive in your inbox on December 11. You can create an account on the Pokémon website, then make sure to opt into email communications.
