Zarude, the Rogue Monkey Pokemon, Revealed! By: Water Pokémon Master Posted 1 year ago to Games 29 comments Zarude is the new Mythical Pokemon that was previously seen as a silhouette! It will star in Pokemon Koko and will be available in Sword & Shield later this year. It is known as the Rogue Monkey Pokemon. It is Dark/Grass and has Leaf Guard as its Ability. It is 5’11” and weighs 154.3 lbs. Zarude 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 Pokemon 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.
