A very happy Pokemon Day to you all! And with it comes a shocking new arrival! A new mythical Pokemon is coming to Pokemon Sword and Shield, it’s called Zarude, and it’s not the kind of Pokemon you’d expect…

“We’ve confirmed the existence of Zarude, the 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.”

Zarude is a Grass/Dark type, and its Leaf Guard Ability helps it be even stronger. While we don’t know when this Pokemon will arrive in the game, you can bet it’ll be coming to help hype up the release of the Expansion Passes for Sword and Shield!
