Pokemon Coco

The Pokémon Company has announced that the release of this summer's movie, Pokémon the Movie: Coco, will be postponed.

The film was due to be released in Japanese cinemas on 10th July, but the company has issued a statement to its official website today to inform fans of the delay. As you can probably guess, the postponement is due to ongoing complications presented by the coronavirus outbreak; The Pokémon Company apologises for the delay and notes that fans will be informed about future ticket sales when the time comes.

The film stars Ash and Pikachu - obviously - as well as a young boy called Coco. The plot has some Jungle Book vibes going on, with Coco being raised in the middle of a jungle by the mythical Pokémon Zarude.

Here's hoping fans can get to see the new film soon!
