The official Japanese Pocket Monsters anime Twitter account posted a message on February 24th, 2021 about Yuriyan Retriever playing the role of Koduck as well as her comments.

Yuriyan Retriever appears as a guest voice actress in Anipoke Episode 57!
She will be the voice of Koduck, the character that Kikuna met and remembers.

アニポケ 第57話にゆりやんレトリィバァ さんがゲスト声優で登場
キクナが出会った、思い出の コダック の声を務めます

I was so happy to be able to do the voice of my favorite Pokémon from my childhood!
Koduck's only line was "Kopa," so I thought it would be easy, but when I actually started recording, it was very difficult to express Koduck's emotions and personality with just my voice!
I realized that Pokémon, like humans, are creatures that express a lot of emotions.
Please look forward to the "Pocket Monsters" anime airing on February 26 (Fri.)
I love Koduck!
Yuriyan Retriever as Koduck

子どもの頃から大好きなポケモンの声をさせて頂けて嬉しかっ
たです!
コダックのセリフは「コパ」だけだつたので、簡単かと思っていま
したが、実際にアフレコをしてみたらコダックの感情や性格を声
のみで表現するのはとても難しかつたです!
人間と同じでポケモンも感情をたくさん表現する生き物なんだ
と実感しました。
2月26日(金)に放送されるア二メ「ポヶットモンス夕一」を是非
楽しみにして〈ださぃ。
コダツク大好き!
コダツク役 ゆりやんレトリィバァ

Anipoke is just around the corner! The promise of a girls' night with food, sweets, and love stories...?

The anime "Pocket Monsters" will start airing soon! It's being broadcast every Friday at 6:55 pm! Just before the anime airs, this article will introduce the Pokémon and characters that will appear in today's episode, comments from the voice actors and director, and other Anipoke information you won't hear anywhere else! Today's Anipoke is a story of love!

Koharu father, Director Sakuragi, goes to an academic conference, her mother stays in her office room at work, and her younger brother, Sota, has a sleepover with her Wanpachi. One day, when the weather is cold and snow is forecast, Koharu is left alone.

Koharu heads to the laboratory to invite Go to dinner, but Go and Satoshi go looking for an ice-type Pokémon. While waiting for Go to return, Koharu decides to take a tour of the laboratory.

While waiting for Go to return to the laboratory, Koharu and Eievui are surprised by Gengar.

Koharu admires Kikuna, who is cool at her job. But, Kikuna makes an unexpected proposal!?

When Go doesn't come back at the end of Kikuna's work day, Koharu is about to give up and go home, but Kikuna invites her to a girls' night out at her house! With that being the case, they buy some good food and go to her home!

pic

She couldn't help but smile when Kikuna, the girl she's been idoling over, asks her to "come over". It's going to be a fun night!

pic

At the same time, Satoshi and Go... they were also enjoying some delicious food.

When Koharu arrives at Kikuna's house, she finds a picture displayed in her room. There was a picture of Kikuna, a young man and a Koduck. Could this person be Kikuna's boyfriend? It seems that Kikuna has special feeling for this young man. When Koharu sees Kikuna saying sadly, "I wonder how he's doing now," she knows she is lonely and she is determined to help Kikuna's love!

pic

The people in the photo are Kikuna, the young man, and Koduck wearing a blue scarf.

pic

Kikuna's room full of Koduck. Is her love for Koduck because of something that happened in the past...?

Meanwhile, Satoshi and Go were still at the noodle shop. ...Hey!?

That Koduck with the blue scarf... no way! That means the young man next to it is...?
