It's been quite a big week for the Pokémon series. The Pokémon Direct revealed Pokémon Sword and Shield would be getting an expansion pass and 200 old monsters, and we also found out the original Pokémon Mystery Dungeon spin-off games would be remade for the Switch.

If that wasn't already enough excitement, the first teaser trailer for the next animated Pokémon movie has now been revealed during the Japanese television show Oda Suta. It sees the return of Ash and Pikachu in an all-new adventure.

As you can see, the 30-second clip shows off lush jungle, a new Tarzan-like character swinging from tree vines, a relic, a baby in a temple (which some fans think might be a flashback), and Ash and Pikachu get a second of screentime.

The title of the movie in Japan is Pokémon Coco and it will be fully animated in 2D, even though the previous movie embraced 3DCG artwork. It's due out in Japan on 10th July, but there's been no mention of when it will be released outside of this region just yet. Below are some screencaps:
