I don't think anyone has mentioned this yet(?) but according to Serebii, the new Mythical that will have its official reveal on February 27th will appear in this movie. Since the silhouette for it strongly resembles a monkey, I suspect it will have a strong connection to the kid. Especially since the kid resembles Tarzan, who was raised by apes. It could also take a villainous role as the ruler of the jungle or something like that, but it's hard to tell from just a silhouette.

I think they really should’ve updated the new series to look more CG but then it would not be conical.

My guess is the Mythical Pokémon was the one who raised the boy.

I'm just curious about the Ash we are gonna get. The one from M21 or the anime one.

I'll be honest, I'm glad that this episode is returning to the world established in M20 and M21, it allows more variety in the movie in terms of characters and Pokemon

There is definitely no variety in the Pokemon Ash uses. Enjoy watching just Pikachu.

Movie 21 had several supporting Pokemon due to the cast, but this one will probably just have a lot of wild Pokemon in addition to the two mythicals.

Two? I don't think we've gotten confirmation of Celebi yet.

Between the shrine in the trailer and today's confirmation of a Celebi-focused TCG set to be released alongside the movie, I have no doubt about Celebi getting some role.

PokeBeach said:
S3a Legendary Heartbeat
Japan’s mini-set for the summer will be named Legendary Heartbeat. It will feature 76 cards and release on July 10th. This is the same day as the movie Pokemon Koko, meaning this will be a movie-themed set.

The set will feature Celebi, Zacian, Zamazenta, and other Mythical and Legendary Pokemon. It’s likely it will also feature the unrevealed Mythical Pokemon from Pokemon Koko.

The set will introduce a new type of rarity named “Amazing Rare.” Your opponent cannot take a Prize card when Knocking Out an Amazing Rare Pokemon.
They specifically single out Celebi, so it's more relevant than the other legendaries/mythicals.

Zarude has a decent design, but I really don't see any story potential here other than the Tarzan shtick ("Zarude and the boy move as one! They're family!"). Celebi might spice it up with the baby.

The Tarzan elements make a lot more sense now...

Please tell me a villain with be after Zarude. They're usually the highlight of the PokeMovies.
