‘Coco’ Human Character from Zarude Movie Releasing as a Pokemon Promo?!

The latest issue of CoroCoro magazine has revealed the human character Coco from the upcoming Zarude movie will be getting his own promo card… but as a Grass-type Pokemon! What?!

In the movie he’s raised as a Pokemon by Zarude, as with stories like Tarzan. Is he getting a Pokemon card instead of a Trainer card because he thinks he’s a Pokemon? Or is there more to him than meets the eye?

Those who attend the Zarude movie will receive the promo card. The movie will release in theaters in Japan this December.
