Koko, born as Al Molybdenum, is the main protagonist of Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle. He is the son of two famous researchers who was orphaned as a baby and raised by a Zarude like his own son. His archenemy is Dr.Zed due to him murdering his birth parents.

He is voiced by Moka Kamishiraishi in Japanese (Wakana Minami as an infant) and Kimlinh Tran in the English dub.

Descrption

Appearance

Koko is a young boy with tan skin, chestnut hair and blue eyes. His hair is messy with two frills resembling Zarude ears and has white body paintings that resemble the white skin on a Zarude. For attire, he wears nothing bu a loincloth and vines around his wrists resembling that of a Zarude.

Personality

Due to his upbringing by Zarude, Koko often speaks in Pokémon speech such as Zarude and was unfamiliar with human vocabulary until later on he learned how to speak both Pokémon speech and Human vocabulary.

His behavior mirrored that of a Zarude; often running on fours, growling when startled, using his heightened senses to locate objects, swinging from tree branches and vines.

Koko initially was uncertain with his identity as he noticed the difference between himself and other Zarude.

Abilities and Powers

Because Koko was taught the ways of Pokémon,he’s able to survive and flourish, even understand the language of Pokémon, but despite his survival instincts he tends to be in trouble from time to time.He’s also the first human in history to ever use a Pokémon move.

History

Ten years prior to the events of the movie, Al Molybdenum was born as the only child of scientists Chrom and Phossa Molybdenum, who were the leaders of the Biotope Company. They researched the mysteries of the healing spring water in the Forest of Okoya, seeking to locate its source. Chrom and Phossa eventually managed to acquire a sample of the spring water and were able to find its source, the Great Tree hidden somewhere deep in the jungle. However, when they realized the great tree was a sacred place to the troop of Pokémon called Zarude living there, they decided to put their research on hold until they could find a way to approach the matter in a way more respectful to the tree's residents. This enraged Zed, who was unable to persuade Chrom to change his mind. Returning to his office, Zed recorded a video log about the project's postponement, only to suffer a psychotic break during the recording, trash the office and decide that he should lead the Biotope Company instead.

Zed then pursued Chrom and Phossa in his car, running them off a road and causing a fiery wreck, leaving Chrom and Phossa wounded. Before Zed could reach them, they sent their son Al down a nearby river inside a cradle to protect him with their research contained in Phossa Molybdenum's pendant, Zed stole their sample of the spring water along with the research of the Great Tree and left Chrom and Phossa to die in the subsequent explosion when their wrecked car exploded, swearing he would rebuild their work from scratch.

Al Molybdenum was eventually found by a single Zarude living deep within the jungle. Knowing that this was against the rules of its troop, Zarude decided to leave the other Zarude behind so it could raise Koko safely, as they objected to a human being brought to their sacred tree. This Zarude attempted to return Koko to his parents, however an attempt to leave him in Milyfa Town led to Al nearly walking in front of a car. Zarude decided to investigate a nearby lab and upon seeing its abandoned state and a photo of Al with his parents, Zarude realized that the parents are dead or missing and that the baby was now an orphan. Zarude decided to raise Al Molybdenum as a son and renamed him Koko. This Zarude, who took to wearing a torn piece of pink clothing, would become known as "Dada" to Koko.

Over the next ten years, Zarude raised Koko in the depths of the jungle, and the two developed a strong bond. As he had no memory of his human life, Koko believed he was also a Pokémon and was frustrated by the fact that he was seemingly unable to use moves. Zarude didn't want to tell Koko the truth.

Trivia

  • There have been several people throughout the pokémon franchise to have abilities, for example Sabrina is gifted with psychic along within telekinesis.But, with Koko is different because instead of using a superpower he rather used a pokémon move, the first in pokémon history, in fact.
  • Koko is very relatable towards Tarzan,both of their parents died while they were babies,both were raised by and understood animals(Koko with zarude, Tarzan with apes),both experienced identity crises, both were also betrayed by the main villain however they’ve been defeated (Koko with Dr.Zed, Tarzan with Clayton), at the end they accepted who they are despite their differences.
  • As matter of fact both movies, Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle and Disney Tarzan, have similarities towards each other.
