One mystery surrounding the movie regards the aforementioned “Dada Zarude”, which not only features in the film, but is also available as a distribution Pokemon for Sword and Shield, alongside a Shiny Celebi.

However, while Dada Zarude is available, nobody really knows what it is.

Thankfully, the answer is fairly simple. This Zarude is the main Pokemon within the movie.

Dada Zarude earns its “Dada” title by bringing up a human child, named Koko, who believes he himself is actually a Zarude. The Secrets of the Jungle move is set to focus on the pair and their encounter with both Ash and Pikachu. It is noted for wearing a bright pink cape, something which will hopefully be prevalent in it’s Sword and Shield version.
