Music partially by: Okazaki Physical Education
Ending Theme: Really Mysterious Creatures (ふしぎふしぎな生き物) by Tortoise Matsumoto (トータス松本) and Taiiku Okazaki



Story Outline Translation:

This is a story of a slightly unusual parent-child relationship
involving one Pokémon and one human.

In the depths of a jungle in the middle of nowhere, we find Okoya Forest,
a Pokémon paradise operating with strict laws.

The stubborn and obstinate Zarude lived there with his kin,
but one day he discovered a human baby by the riverside.

"Human, this is..."

Zarude could not allow himself to abandon it,
so he decided to disobey the law of the forest,
leave his tribe behind, and live alone with the child, whom he named Coco.

It has been 10 years since this Pokémon first started to raise this human.
Coco meets Satoshi and Pikachu as they visit Okoya Forest.
This is the first "Human friend" he has ever made.
And little by little, questions start to sprout deep in the mind of a boy
who had been fully convinced he was a Pokémon.

"Father, am I a human?"
Am I a Pokémon? Or am I a human?
As Coco ponders this, the sound of uninvited human footsteps approach Okoya Forest one day, signalizing a drastic change to the peaceful days it has thus far been enjoying.
