The new film's story is set in Okoya Forest, a Pokémon paradise protected by strict rules that forbid outsiders from setting foot inside. The film centers on Koko, a boy who was raised by Pokémon and also considers himself as one, treating the Mythical Pokémon Zarude as his father. Ash and Pikachu encounter Koko during an adventure. The film focuses on the theme of a "human raised by Pokémon," instead of the previous films' focus of the "bond between a human trainer and their Pokémon."

Pokemon Movie 23: Coco/Secrets of The Jungle made me cry.

I know there will be people out there calling this a Tarzan rip-off, and I'll admit, the concept is nothing revolutionary and the plot can be very predictable at parts, but BOY is the overall execution and heights of the emotions in movie incredible. Its 100% worth a watch, especially for any long-term Pokemon fans out there.

I love this new alternate line of Pokemon movies after the soft-reset that was Pokemon Movie 20: I Choose You and then Movie 21: The Power of Us which seem to focus on a specific theme instead of trying ...

Mixed Feelings
A movie with the combined flavors of Pokemon 4ever and Disney's Animated Tarzan, where we follow a young boy raised by a mythical Pokemon who discovers he is uniquely able to help both humans and Pokemon. The plot is nothing astounding, we delve into Ash helping this wild child discover who he is while taking down a baddie who just wants the jungle's natural resources.
The visuals are okay, there were only a few scenes that wowed me and the ones that really detracted was when I could see the CGI game-looking models of Pokemon in the background. Sure there was some flashy camera angles ...

Not surprised that this is another terrible Pokemon movie.

Where to begin?
- Unoriginal story, literally a rip off of Tarzan but worse
- Typical cartoon villain being a bad guy because he's a bad guy (also extremely dumb, recording a proof of his evil plot for no good reason as if he wanted to be caught)
- Team Rocket role felt forced and unnecessary
- The humor is just etremely old jokes
- Tons of cliche ideas
- Overused "pokemon and humans must co-exist!" as if this subplot hasn't been used millions of times
- Just like in the previous movie, Ash doesn't do anything for most of the ...
