After releasing a poster from illustrator Yoshitoshi Shinomiya earlier in the day, the official Pokémon YouTube channel released a pair of new trailers for the upcoming Japanese release of Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle, titled Pokémon the Movie: Koko in Japan, showcasing the bond between Koko and Zarude.
The first trailer of the two features Beverly singing the Japanese opening theme to Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle, “Koko”, named after the lead new character in the movie.
The second shorter teaser trailer features the main theme for the anime film, “Fushigina Fushigina Ikimono (Mysterious, Strange Creatures)” from Tortoise Matsumoto.
Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle is releasing in Japan as Pokémon the Movie: Koko on December 25, 2020, after being delayed due to the new coronavirus – marking the first time a Pokémon film has ever opened at Christmas time in the country. It releases in the West in 2021.
