Meet Zarude, a New Mythical “Rogue Monkey” Pokémon

When fighting, it swings around using trees and their branches, attacking relentlessly with its sharp claws or any other means it has. Its quick wit helps it excel in battles.

Today is Pokemon day, and that means there are all sorts of goodies waiting for players in Pokemon GO and Sword and Shield, the latter of which just received a brand new Mythical Pokemon. Meet Zarude in this reveal trailer from the official Pokemon YouTube channel:

As it stands, we don’t really know how to obtain Zarude just yet, though we received a sort of vague details on where it lives:

It has been reported that Zarude lives in a pack deep in the heart of dense forests. It treats anyone that isn’t part of its pack with immediate hostility, attacking right away. Because of this, other Pokémon that live in the same forest are afraid of Zarude.

Clearly this is worded to suggest details to the trainers in Sword and Shield, in which Zarude is exclusively available. But what does this mean to players trying to catch it? Not sure just yet, but we have a hunch that Zarude will either be available through raids or some possible in-game event. At this point, it’s all just speculation so we will just have to wait and see…

I prefer Crocs for their style over their comfort.
