Set within the forest of Okoya, the film will center on Koko, a human boy who has been raised by the Mythical Pokémon Zarude. Since he’s grown up only around Pokémon, Koko believes without a doubt that he is a Pokémon, but a chance meeting with Ash and Pikachu leaves him with his first interaction with another human and might have him questioning his own past.

You can check out the trailer for the upcoming film below:

Alongside the news of the film and trailer, fans of the Pokémon series can also grab some in-game treats to celebrate the upcoming film as well. In their announcement, The Pokémon Company announced that they would be giving out Dada Zarude and a Shiny Celebi to owners of Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield. All players have to do is sign up for the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter and opt-in for email marketing by September 25, 2021, and they should receive an email with a password for both Pokémon.
