As teased, The Pokemon Company has revealed a new Mythical Pokemon for Sword and Shield as part of its Pokemon Day celebration. The new Pokemon is called Zarude, and it’ll play a major role in the upcoming Pokemon movie, Coco, which premieres in Japan later this year.
Zarude is known as the Rogue Monkey Pokemon. It’s a Dark/Grass-type with the Ability Leaf Guard, which prevents it from being inflicted by status conditions when the weather on the battlefield is sunny.
