In the Forest of Okoya, Koko is a feral child who has been raised as a Pokémon by the Mythical Pokémon Zarude. Koko has grown up never doubting that he is a Pokémon even though he can’t really use any sort of moves. Ash Ketchum and Pikachu meet Koko and help him protect the Great Tree from the crooked scientist Dr. Zed.





  • The theme of Koko being raised as a Pokémon may act as a reference to Tarzan and The Jungle Book.
  • This is the first movie to not be released in July in Japan. Typically, a Pokémon movie is released in Japan in July and dubbed into English in December.
  • In this movie, Ash mentions his father for the first time. The previous two references have come from his mother.
  • This is the first movie that doesn't feature any of the new characters in the era the movie was aired parallel to the series (in this case, the Pokémon Journeys: the Series).
  • This movie shares the same animation style with MS021: Pokémon the Movie - The Power of Us.
