Pokemon Sword and Shield players are excited about Zarude coming to the Galar region but it looks like they may have to wait a bit longer.

The Mythical Rogue Monkey was reportedly coming alongside the next Pokemon Movie, Pokemon Coco. Trainers who saw the movie would reportedly be given Zarude as a gift to bring to their Pokemon Sword or Shield game.

Pokemon Coco movie delayed

“We have decided to postpone the release date of “Theatrical version Pokemon Coco” that was scheduled to be released from July 10, 2020 (Friday), due to the spread of new coronavirus infection,” the Pokemon Company revealed on their official Japanese website.

The movie trailer shows Ash and Pikachu coming across a boy who lives in the jungle by the name of, you guessed it, Coco. Within that jungle lies Zarude as well, which is why the movie was being used for its release into the latest Pokemon game.

It has already been confirmed that Zarude cannot be found in normal gameplay. So, trainers will have to wait unless the Pokemon Company reverse this decision.

Interestingly they list the dual dark and grass-type as 5’11” tall but the movie trailer suggests it is far bigger than this. It’s either that or Coco is very small!

Zarude release date

While no details about Zarude were officially shared in the Pokemon Company’s statement, it’s reasonable to assume that its appearance in the Galar region will be delayed.

Now the question becomes when will the movie release. With so much going on in the world right now, we can only speculate as to when.

When and if the health situation subsides, we might get some positive news on its release date. Fortunately minus the seeming delay of Zarude, Pokemon as a whole seems to be running as normal.

A talented cosplayer shared her true-to-life take on Demon Slayer’s beloved heroine Kanao Tsyuri. The artist adorably captures the character’s look.

Demon Slayer was not only the breakout anime series of 2019, but has quickly become a cultural phenomena. The series is so popular, its 2020 film Mugen Train is on track to become Japan’s highest-grossing movie of all time.

Viewers around the world have fallen in love with its dark story, and Studio Ufotable’s jaw-dropping animation. To celebrate the hit show, a skilled cosplayer brought popular character Kanao Tsuyuri to life with an insanely accurate costume.

Demon Slayer has become a massive hit around the world since its 2019 anime debut.

While the show mainly centers around Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado, new characters are introduced to viewers in the latter half of Season 1. The protagonist siblings eventually meet Kanao after joining the Demon Slayer corps.

Cosplayer ‘seeuxiaorou’ made waves on Instagram after sharing her transformation into the popular heroine. The artist posed as the anime character while holding Tsyuri’s iconic blue and pink katana sword. 

SeeU absolutely nailed Kanao’s look, perfectly recreating her black Demon Slayer corps uniform, including the white cape which drapes across her shoulders. The cosplayer looks so much like the anime swordsman, it almost looks like a screenshot from the show.

Demon Slayer originally made its debut as a manga back in 2016. Created by Koyoharu Gotoge, the dark story became a hit in the popular Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. However, it was its anime adaptation by Studio Ufotable that made it a worldwide phenomenon. 

Fans anticipating more of the series are in luck as it returned in October with the release of the Mugen Train film in Japan. The movie will bridge Season 1 and 2, and is set to hit US theaters sometime in early 2021. Those looking to catch up can watch all episodes on Funimation and Crunchyroll.
