In conjunction with the 2020 Pokemon Movie, Pokemon The Movie Coco, the very first 8th Generation
Mythical Pokemon was revealed! This Pokemon is known as the Rogue Monkey Pokemon - which matches its appearance dead on - and will have the name of Zarude. Zarude will be a dual Grass/Dark Type Pokemon, only the third of its kind (Nuzleaf and Shiftry being the other two). It will have the previously known ability of Leaf Guard that will protect it from status conditioning during sunlight within battle, but it will know an exclusive move known as Jungle Healing which will heal both Zarude and its allies HP
and status conditioning during battle. Being that it is a Mythical Pokemon, Zarude will only be obtained via a Wi-Fi Event.
