As part of Pokémon's 25th anniversary this year, The Pokémon Company has announced the 23rd film Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle will debut on Netflix here in the west on October 8th.

It follows the adventures of Ash and Pikachu as they encounter the Mythical Zarude to overcome the danger that threatens the jungle. Here's the full synopsis:

"In this new animated adventure, a troop of the Mythical Pokémon Zarude live deep within the Forest of Okoya where they maintain a strict rule that forbids outsiders from entering their territory. Elsewhere in the jungle lives Koko, a human boy raised by a lone Zarude who left the troop. Koko has grown up never doubting that he is a Zarude, but one day, a chance meeting with Ash and Pikachu leaves Koko with his first human friend. Is Koko truly a Pokémon? Or is he, in fact, a human? When danger threatens the jungle, the bonds between Pokémon and humans—and the love between parent and child—will be put to the test."
