Pokémon The Movie: Coco
The Pokémon Company that the pre-booking of tickets for the latest Pokémon movie, Pokémon The Movie: Coco, has been postponed to an unspecified date. It was initially slated to go live on April 16th. Naturally, that means that the Shiny Celebi distribution has also been delayed.
As for the movie itself, no change: it’s still set to open on July 10th in Japan.

Grass-type Pokémon and Attacks
Niantic have announced changes regarding some Grass-type attacks:
- Bullet Seed – This Grass-type Fast Attack now generates energy more quickly.
- Energy Ball – This Grass-type Charged Attack now reaches full charge more quickly and has a chance of lowering the opponent’s Defense by one stage.
- Leaf Tornado – This Grass-type Charged Attack now has a chance of decreasing your opponent’s Attack by two stages.
- Ancient Power – The damage that this Rock-type Charged Attack deals has been decreased in Trainer Battles.
- Silver Wind – The damage that this Bug-type Charged Attack deals has been decreased in Trainer Battles.
- Ominous Wind – The damage that this Ghost-type Charged Attack deals has been decreased in Trainer Battles. It also reaches full charge less quickly.
Also, the following Pokémon can now learn new moves:
- Bellossom: Bullet Seed – The combination of this Grass-type Fast Attack with Bellossom’s Grass-type Charged Attack Leaf Blade makes Bellossom a powerful option as a Grass-type lead.
- Jumpluff: Aerial Ace – Pairing the Flying-type Charged Attack Aerial Ace with the Grass-type Fast Attack Bullet Seed allows Jumpluff to use Charged Attacks more quickly.
- Ludicolo: Energy Ball – This attack reaches full charge faster than Solar Beam, giving the Carefree Pokémon access to a different Grass-type Charged Attack to use with different play styles. Energy Ball could pair well with Bubble, one of Ludicolo’s Fast Attacks!
- Cradily: Bullet Seed – This Grass-type Fast Attack will charge up Cradily’s Charged Attacks faster.
- Sunshine Form Cherrim: Fire-type Weather Ball – This Fire-type Charged Attack is fitting for a Pokémon that appears when it’s sunny out.
- Tangrowth: Rock Slide – Tangrowth can continue having a dominating lead against Kyogre and Groudon in Master League while making the Flying-type Pokémon often used to counter it more dependent on Protect Shields.
