Zarude is a Dark / Grass type Mythical Pokémon that was first introduced in Pokémon Sword & Shield as part of a post-launch update.


Zarude is a bipedal Pokémon that resembles a monkey. Its body is mainly black with greyish tints. Four green rings surround each of its two arms along with two identical green markings on its hands. It has green eyes with red sclera along with a long black tail. On its chest is a gray marking resembling that of a rib-cage.

Zarude can grow vines at will from its back neck, wrists, and the soles of its feet. The vine it creates are flexible and strong. Zarude uses the vines for many situations. The vines are capable of wrapping around tree branches to move and collect berries from distant branches. Zarude's vines can also heal a wound by wrapping around it. Zarude is known to live in packs located in the center of dense forests. Other Pokémon fear living in the same forest as Zarude due to it attacking anyone who is not a part of its pack. When Zarude fights it swings around the trees and their branches while relentlessly attacking with either its sharp claws or other means. Zarude excels in battles thanks to its quick wit.
