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 read more

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 read more

Should you watch it? I mean it's a Pokemon Movie. Why wouldn't you? Lol aside from that I'd say yes. It's a really great movie. In the review below I'll try to refrain from as much spoilers as I can if you haven't watch it yet.

Story: While it might give you Tarzan vibes to some extent. It's more of a heartwarming story between a Child and their parent, and the relationship they've build with each other. And how like any Pokemon movie, gotta save the world or area they're in. As far as Ash and Pikachu goes, they seemed more like side characters in read more

So, I saw that this had no review and I have been following the Pokemon Franchise since a long-time so the review and rating might seem biased. Also this is my first review!
So as the pokemon franchise has been doing for all these years the movie was satisfying and filled with vibrant colours and elemnts of fantasy. well, as the trailer suggests it focuses on father-son relation. Moreover the storyline is quite similar to previous movies depicting atrocities of some evil humans on Pokemon and our protagonists comes to save the day. But this movie actually made me cry a lot. It is a perfect read more
