“As the 23rd animated Pokémon film, Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle tells the story of Koko, a young boy raised by Pokémon, and the creation of a new bond between humans and Pokémon. ​Deep in the jungle, far from any human settlement, is the Forest of Okoya, a Pokémon paradise forbidden to outsiders and protected by a strict code of rules,” said an official description of Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle. ​

“In this jungle lives Koko, a human boy who has been raised as a Pokémon by the Mythical Pokémon Zarude. Koko has grown up never doubting that he is a Pokémon. But one day, a chance meeting with Ash and Pikachu leaves Koko with his first human friend. Is he truly a Pokémon? Or is he, in fact, a human? When danger threatens the Forest of Okoya, the bonds between Pokémon and human, as well as the love between parent and child, will be put to the test.”
