A brand new trailer has been released in Japan for Pokémon The Movie: Coco, the next upcoming film in the Pokémon franchise.

This will be the 23rd film in the regular Pokémon series and features Ash and Pikachu alongside new character Coco. Mythical Pokémon Zarude makes an appearance, as well as a shiny Celebi. Most of these characters can be seen in the new trailer in addition to fan-favourites Jessie and James, Ash's mum, and more.

Originally, the film was set to arrive in Japanese theatres last month, but the coronavirus pandemic meant that the release date had to be pushed back. It will now release on 25th December 2020.
