Pokémon the Movie: Coco trailer reveals film plot and brand new Pokémon!

Pokémon Day may be coming to a close, but there was still time to drop a new trailer for the next animated film. Pokémon the Movie: Coco has two trailers – a 30-second teaser that introduces a new Pokémon named Zarude and 90-second trailer to tease the plot. The new film has Ash (in the new film canon which started with I Choose You!) meeting a new boy Coco in the forest. Ash learns that Coco thinks he is a Pokémon and is being raised by a special mythical Pokémon in a very Tarzan-esque way, calling Zarude his father. A crisis appears in the forest and Ash has to team up with Coco to save it.

Tetsuo Yajima, director of Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us, is behind the film with long time Pokémon writer Atsuhiro Tomiyoka. The film is the 23rd movie in the franchise and it opens July 10 in Japan.
