What happens in Pokemon Secrets of the Jungle?
Secrets of the Jungle takes place deep within the Forest of Okoya, a paradise that’s forbidden to outsiders. Here lives a human boy named Koko, who has been raised as a Pokemon by the Mythical Zarude, but a chance meeting with Ash forces him to question if he’s actually a human.
As with any Pokemon movie, danger (and Team Rocket) aren’t far behind, and when the jungle comes under threat, the bonds between Pokemon and human – as well as Zarude’s parental relationship with Koko – is put to the test.
There will be crossover events to celebrate the launch of Secrets of the Jungle, including the ability to claim Dada Zarude and Shiny Celebi in Sword & Shield and a special Go event. We’ll update this page as details get announced.
Make sure you tune into Netflix on October 8, 2021, to catch the latest Pokemon adventure, Secrets of the Jungle.
