Introducing the ‘Rogue Monkey Pokémon’
- by Liam Doolan
After teasing the silhouette of the new mythical Pokémon for weeks on end, yesterday The Pokémon Company finally revealed the new Dark/Grass-type pocket monster Zarude in the Nintendo Switch games, Pokémon Sword and Shield.
Now, following on from this, the Japanese Pokémon YouTube channel has shared a brand new trailer for the upcoming film – Pokémon the Movie: Coco – featuring the new mythical creature. It originally aired on the Japanese variety show, Oha Suta.
Here’s a summary of the trailer, courtesy of Serebii.net. Below this are some screenshots:
This trailer showcases a Shiny Celebi flying in the forest. Later on, it shows Ash meeting the boy in the forest who says his name is Coco. The trailer shows Coco living with the Pokémon in the forest but before too long, the forest is under attack and Coco falls off a cliff, to be saved by a Zarude who raised Coco.
Pocket Monsters the Movie: Coco will be released in Japanese cinemas on 10th July this year. There’s been no mention of a release date outside of this region yet, but if you do feel like watching a Pokémon movie, Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution just got released on Netflix.
