Pokemon Coco Movie postponed in Japan due to Coronavirus

Some unfortunate news regarding the upcoming Pokemon anime film Pokemon Coco in Japan.

About Pokemon Coco Movie

Coco is a young boy raised by a Pokémon. This summer, an all new bond between a Pokémon and a human will be born. In the depths of a jungle in the middle of nowhere…

We find Okoya Forest, a Pokémon paradise operating with strict laws, where outsiders are not permitted to set foot. In this forest, young Coco was raised as a Pokémon by the mythical Pokémon Zarude.

Coco is fully convinced that he is a Pokémon, but when he one day meets Satoshi and Pikachu, he’s able to make his first ever “human friend”.

Am I a Pokémon? Or am I a human?

When danger approaches Okoya Forest, the love between a Pokémon and a human, a father and a son, is put to the test.
