Ukraine Tymofiy Marchenko Ash Ketchum
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.

The 23rd animated film in the Pokémon series, "Pokémon the Movie: Coco," will be released on the December 25th, 2020. Set in the jungle, the film depicts the love between Coco, a boy raised by Pokémon, and Zarude, the phantom Pokémon that raised Coco. This is an unprecedented story of a parent and child in which a Pokémon raises a human.

The story focuses on the love between a father and his child and for the first time in this film, the main character Satoshi mentions his father, who has never been revealed until now, including in the TV animation series that started in 1997. "We can see that Satoshi's character and actions originated from his father, and he feels that family should be the driving force behind his activities. I feel that family should be the driving force behind our activities, and that's because Satoshi is still a 10-year-old boy who needs the love of parents."

"What is a real parent and child? The aim of using Pokémon to express the question of what is a parent and child
Oricon: The theme of this film is "What is a real parent and child? What does it mean to raise a child? Why did you decide to go beyond "family love," which you had depicted in previous films, and focus on "parent-child love"?

Tetsuo Yajima (矢嶋哲生): I have a five-year-old son and a two-year-old daughter and they have changed my view of life, so I chose "parent and child" as the theme of the story. Rather than the message I wanted to convey to the children, I wanted to express the message I received from them through the relationship between humans and Pokémon. In the film, I convey my own feelings from the perspective of Zarude.

I want to make animated films all the time, so my personal thought is that I strongly don't want to die, and I want to stay alive forever (laughs). (laughs) If I die, I won't be able to create, so I've always been kind of obsessed with "living". But one day, when I saw my son sleeping next to me, I realized that if I were to get lost on a deserted island with him, I would risk my life to protect him and that he was more important than my own life. I know it's a natural thing to do as a parent, but at that moment I thought, "Huh?" I felt that I was not attached to my life. It was only when I was no longer attached to life that I felt that my life was gone. This was the moment when my life changed drastically due to the influence of my two children.

In the movie, we see Zarude's decision to raise Coco against the law of the forest. The "law" that Zarude used to cherish is the "attachment to life" that I used to cherish and Zarude changed his mind when he met Coco is when I changed my mind when I met the children. I know it takes courage to change rules and thoughts that you have held so dear, but I found it strange and interesting that it happened so naturally, without any difficulties.

Oricon: I was curious about the reason why you chose to portray a parent-child relationship between Pokémon and humans, two different species.

Tetsuo Yajima (矢嶋哲生): First of all, I realized that each person has a different definition of parent and child and it was very difficult to depict a story of a parent and child. Everyone's family environment is different and there are complex parent-child relationships, but as a filmmaker, it was difficult to come up with a definition of a "normal family. However, I thought that the "core" of everyone's different family environment would not be derived from their roots. I thought that even if parents and children are not connected by blood, they are still parent and child if there is an unshakable bond at the core. At that time, I thought it would be meaningful to depict the parent-child relationship between humans and Pokémon, who are not connected by blood and have different forms. Until now, "Pokémon" films have depicted a world where humans and Pokémon coexist, but I think this is the first film that takes a step forward.

Everyone's family environment is different, so I'm sure we've all experienced it at one time or another. When this happens, we think, "I'm not being cared for. I'm sure there are people who have felt like, "I'm not important, I'm not a real child. (laughs). (laughs) With such experiences, I felt that it is not unusual for people to have doubts about the parent-child relationship.

The source of Satoshi's ability to take action is his father. What is imprinted in the heart of a boy who's only ten years old

In the movie, Coco asks himsself, "Am I a Pokémon? Or am I a human?" In the story, it is impressive to see Coco struggling with his own existence and his relationship with his parent. In response, Satoshi, the main character, talks about his father's influence on him and his memories for the first time. As a fan, I was most surprised by the fact that he mentioned his father, although his mother has appeared in the TV anime and the movies. In the movie, the story unfolds after Zarude has raised the baby Coco for 10 years. When they meets Satoshi and Pikachu in the jungle where they lives, Coco, who has never doubted that he is a Pokémon, gradually begins to have doubts in his heart. The film depicts his struggling with his own existence and his relationship with his parent.

In the midst of all this, he says, "Watching Coco and the others reminded me of my dad." It's the first time Satoshi mentions his father in the Pokémon series, but seeing Coco struggling with his relationship with his father, Zarude, I thought it was unnatural for Satoshi not to talk about his father. Satoshi has never mentioned his father before, but in this "story of father and son," there is a reason to mention him, so it was necessary to know how Satoshi felt about his father when he saw Zarude and his son, Coco. He can say this about Coco as well, but since the parent who raised him is still around and actions must have some kind of meaning. Also, Satoshi is a boy who can be a friend to anyone without being condescending, so by talking about his father instead of his mother, he was able to be there for his friend Coco.

Satoshi, as we all know, is an energetic boy who never gives up and thinks positively. If Satoshi's father's words are the origin of his behavior, it makes sense why he does what he does and I think it is in line with the theme of this movie which is "a Story of parent and child". Satoshi is aiming to become a Pokémon Master, but he feels that his family should be the driving force behind his activities. That's because Satoshi is still a 10-year-old boy who needs the love of his parents. This is the first time he has shared his memories of his father and I think it shows that Satoshi's personality and behavior originated from his father.


Sound Supervisor Masafumi Mima posted a video on his Twitter account on February 27th, 2021 showing how they initially worked on the voice of Uu for Pokémon the Movie Coco.

Before explaining the role to Rikako Aikawa, who played the role of Uu, we used a toy in the studio to solidify the look of the character and confirm the sound with Director Yajima.
It looks like she's playing with it, but I think it's important to be playful...
I'm laughing while making excuses for the staff.
Is this how Uu was born?

『#劇場版ポケットモンスター ココ』

Director Tetsuo Yajima posted a reply to Masafumi Mima's post stating that while the video was a lie of how exactly they came up with the voice, there was some truth to it.

It's a lie, but there's some truth to it. (Laughter) ウソのようなホントの話(笑)

I was impressed with the movie overall. I thought before watching the movie that it was going to be a Tarzan like movie but while it had elements of that, they did seem to create their own movie. I was surprised how small a role Satoshi had in the movie and how Koko and Zarude were really the main characters, which was actually quite a refreshing change.
