Pokemon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle is arriving to Netflix on October 8th, after being released in Japan on December 25th, 2020. In celebration of the Netflix release, The Pokemon Company will be distributing Dada Zarude and Shiny Celebi.
During Pokémon’s 25th anniversary year, we wanted fans to have the opportunity to experience the newest animated Pokémon movie simultaneously as a global community. Pokémon animation is a much-beloved pillar of the franchise, and Netflix is the perfect partner to once again help us deliver a worldwide moment for fans as we celebrate 25 years of action and adventure with Ash and his Pikachu.
