The release date has been decided on December 25th (Friday), and it has been decided that Taiiku Okazaki will produce the songs in the play (6 songs including the theme song) including the main theme of this work. ..
It is the first attempt as a Pokemon movie that multiple songs by a single artist are used in the main story. Taiiku Okazaki is also known as a big Pokemon lover.
In the TV anime “Pocket Monster Sun & Moon” (broadcast from November 2016 to November 2019), I was in charge of both the opening theme and the ending theme, so this time, Mr. Okazaki himself Even so, it was decided to produce the theme song for the movie version of the anime, which would be the “first”.
In addition, the director of this work, Tetsuo Yajima, is a new talent who inherited the director’s baton from Mr. Kunihiko Yuyama, who was the director for 20 years in “Pokemon the Movie: Everyone’s Story”, and is also a Pokemon generation Okazaki Physical Education Together with Mr., we will create a new wind in Pokemon movies.
In addition, some of the songs written by Taiiku Okazaki have several famous artists as vocalists. It is also clear that Tortoise Matsumoto (Ulfuls) will sing the main theme “Mysterious Creatures” ahead of this time! It was the first collaboration between the two who had been close to each other for some time.
The lyrics are studded with messages from the father’s perspective, such as “What is a parent and child? What is raising?”, And it is said that the song is gentle and strongly close to the world view of the movie. The ban on other songs will be lifted in the future, so please look forward to it.

One day, Zarud finds a human baby in the forest of Okoya, a paradise for Pokemon that does not allow strangers to set foot. Contrary to the law of the forest, Zarud, who cannot be abandoned, names the baby Coco and decides to leave the flock and live together.
It has been 10 years since Pokemon started to raise humans. When Coco meets Satoshi and Pikachu who came to the forest of Okoya, questions begin to grow little by little. “Dad, am I a Ningen? Is it a Pokemon?” The video and lyrics that depict the unprecedented bond between parents and children of Coco, who is worried, and Zarud, who thinks of Coco like a real father, are a must-see.
With the addition of a different musical approach than usual, I would like to continue to pay attention to the ever-evolving “Pokemon the Movie”.
Comments from Taiiku Okazaki, Tortoise Matsumoto, and Tetsuo Yajima (sic, title omitted)
I’m a Pokemon-loving boy who was excited to watch “Mu-Two’s Counterattack” at a movie theater with my school friends.
More than 20 years have passed, and the boy who loves Pokemon has a mysterious experience of becoming involved in movies when he realizes it. There was pressure and anguish, but the joy of working with wonderful staff and artists, including Director Yajima, always pushed me back. I hope that in the future, some of the children who watched this movie will have a mysterious experience like me.
Taiiku Okazaki has always thought it was interesting.
So, when I was asked to sing, I immediately accepted it. Then it was a Pokemon song.
I wondered if that was the reason why he called me, so I went to the studio and went to the studio.
I tried my best to meet Okazaki’s expectations.
I think all the fathers of the world will be made to cry by Mr. Okazaki.
It was the first time for me to make a work with the participation of artists from the stage before the script. However, I had many meetings with Taiiku Okazaki, and Mr. Okazaki had a lot of thoughts that I wanted to put into my script, so I had no choice but to expect it. The completed “mysterious and mysterious creature” was exactly what I had imagined. And with the gentle and powerful Tortoise Matsumoto’s singing voice, it became an indispensable song for this movie. The other songs that will be released in the future are all wonderful songs, so I would like all the fans to listen to them as soon as possible.
