Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle coming to Netflix on October 8th, Zarude and Shiny Celebi distributions announced

The wait is (nearly) over: The Pokémon Company have just announced that the latest Pokémon movie, Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle, is coming to Netflix on October 8th.

Here’s a trailer and the synopsis for the movie:

Deep in the jungle, far from any human settlement, you’ll find the Forest of Okoya—a Pokémon paradise forbidden to outsiders. In this jungle lives Koko, a human boy who has been raised as a Pokémon by the Mythical Pokémon Zarude. Koko has grown up never doubting that he is a Pokémon. But one day, a chance meeting with Ash and Pikachu leaves Koko with his first human friend. Is he truly a Pokémon? Or is he, in fact, a human?

In Japan, Pokémon Sword and Shield players could get two Pokémon if they went and saw the movie in theatres: Zarude and Shiny Celebi. In Europe and North America, there will not be a theatrical release, but players will still be able to get the two Pokémon!

In order to get the two Pokémon, you need to register to the Pokémon Trainer Club and opt in to receive marketing emails before September 25th. If you do, you will then receive a Serial Code (two in fact: one for each Pokémon) at a later date.

Here’s details about Zarude:

  • Level: 70
  • Ability: Leaf Guard
  • Held Item: Choice Scarf
  • Moves: Jungle Healing, Hammer Arm, Power Whip, Energy Ball

And here’s details about Shiny Celebi:

  • Level: 60
  • Ability: Natural Cure
  • Held Item: Lucky Egg
  • Moves: Magical Leaf, Future Sight, Life Dew, Heal Bell
