Zarude, the Rogue Mythical Monkey Pokemon revealed in ‘Pokemon: Sword and Shield’

Meet Pokemon Sword and Shield’s latest Mythical Pokemon.

Fans of Generation 8 starter Grookey will soon have another stalwart simian Pokemon to rally behind in Pokemon: Sword and Shield — introducing mythical Zarude, the Rogue Monkey Pokemon, a five-foot-eleven-inch, 154.3 pound absolute anthropoid unit with Grass/Dark dual typing.

Zarude will have the Leaf Guard Ability and according to the official Pokemon.com press release, is in possession of vines that would make Venusaur jealous. Zarude can “grow vines from the back of its neck, its wrists, and the soles of its feet at will. These vines are strong and flexible, and they can be used for a variety of purposes.”

Zarude can use these vines to wrap around tree branches as a means of transportation or snatch up berries from faraway branches. Zarude’s vines also feature healing abilities: “If Zarude wraps its vines around a wound, the wound will heal.”

More information on Zarude:

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.

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

Does that information on Zarude living deep in the forest foreshadow being able to capture him as opposed to just receiving him as a Mystery Gift? What do you think of the latest Mythical Pokemon, Zarude? Sound off in the comments.
