The Pokémon Company have made several announcements today, in order to celebrate Pokémon Day 2020: new Mythical Pokémon for Pokémon Sword and Shield, Pokémon of the Year, more Pokémon Shirts designs, latest Pokémon Masters news, and more!
Pokémon Sword and Shield – Zarude
The Pokémon Company have revealed a brand new Mythical Pokémon: Zarude. Unfortunately, we don’t know when this Pokémon will be added to Pokémon Sword and Shield: all we know is that it will not be available via regular gameplay (which means it will most likely be distributed via a special distribution).
Here’s a trailer, some details, and an artwork for Zarude:
- Name: Zarude
- Category: Rogue Monkey Pokémon
- Height: 5’11”
- Weight: 154.3 lb.
- Type: Dark/Grass
Zarude is a Dark- and Grass-type Pokémon that can grow vines from the back of its neck, its wrists, and the soles of its feet at will. The vines are strong and flexible and are useful for many different situations. They can be used to wrap around tree branches to move around and grab Berries from distant branches, and they even have healing properties. This Mythical Pokémon lives in a pack deep in the dense forests of Galar. It treats anyone that isn’t part of its pack with immediate hostility. When fighting, Zarude swings around from tree branches, attacking relentlessly with its sharp claws. Its quick wit helps it excel in battles.
