List of Contents
Pre-purchase tickets for the film, which are required to obtain Zarude, have been announced with a new sale date of August 7th. Players will be able to receive the Zarude and Shiny Celebi included starting on the first day of sale.
The premiere date of the movie itself has not been announced, though it is scheduled for sometime in Winter 2020.

The information for the Zarude included with Pokemon the Movie: Coco has been released by the official website. (Japanese only)
|Nature||Sassy (+SpDef, -Spd)|
|Nickname||オモヤのもり (Okoyanomori, the name of the forest from the movie)|
Zarude fights by swinging around trees and branches, and attacking its foes head-on with its claws or anything it can get its hands on. With its quick wit, it easily wins battles.
Unknowingly to many, Zarude resides deep in forests, and will immediately attack any Pokemon that is not part of its pack.
Hostile and territorial, many Pokemon that live in the same forest are afraid of Zarude.
Zarude can grow its vines at will; it can grow vines from his nape, wrists, and to the soles of its feet.
Zarude uses its vines to swing around branches, or to pick up berries from afar. The vines also have a healing property; any wound that is wrapped around Zarude's vines will heal.
The 23rd Pokemon movie, titled Pokemon the Movie: Coco is set to release in theatres in Japan in Winter 2020. Zarude, the newly-discovered Rogue Monkey Pokemon, will make its first appearance in this movie.
|Pre-purchase Period||Starting August 7th
End date TBD
By pre-purchasing a ticket for Pokemon the Movie: Coco, you can get Zarude and a shiny Celebi in celebration of the movie. You can receive the two Pokemon regardless of whether you have purchased the Expansion Pass DLC.
However, as the movie is only scheduled to be released in Japan, there's still no info on how those outside of Japan will receive these Pokemon. However, based on past events featuring Mythical Pokemon, similar events will likely be announced in other countries as well.
|Zarude Availability Period||Starting August 7th
End date TBD
Zarude will be obtainable via a Nintendo eShop serial code included with the pre-purchase ticket. After pre-purchase tickets go on sale on August 7th, players will be able to receive Zarude, along with a Shiny Celebi, via the serial code on the same day.
Pre-order tickets for the film will be available starting on August 7th via the following link! Although the website is entirely in Japanese, it will most likely still be possible to purchase the tickets from abroad.
Zarude is not known to evolve into any other Pokemon. It's unlikely that it will evolve, as no Mythical Pokemon has done so in the past.
Zarude's Base Stats are currently unknown. Like other Mythical Pokemon, it is highly likely that its stat total will add up to 600.
Zarude's signature move, Jungle Healing, has the effect of recovering its own and its allies' HP, as well as healing them of any status ailments. All Zarude can learn this movie at Level 90.
Although Jungle Healing is exclusive to Zarude in Pokemon Sword and Shield, the official website remarks that other Pokemon may learn this move in future generations.
Players who have both obtained Zarude and purchased the Isle of Armor DLC will be able to obtain Ash's Hat from the movie Coco as a wearable item!
In order to obtain the Hat, players will need to have Zarude in either their party or a Box, and visit the Isle of Armor. In the Armor Station, the woman on the right, who gives the player the Isle of Armor Pokedex, will give the hat as a reward for obtaining Zarude.

People here are complaining about paying a few bucks for a movie ticket to get a mythical pokemon from a Japanese exclusive event that will likely be repeated in other countries for free, which almost always happens, when most of them already spent 30 dollars on an expansion that only added (technically) 2 pokemon. Just trade them from someone else if it bothers you that much.
Ok, this is pretty awesome BUT the codes are designed for Japan, would they even work abroad? Like I don’t wanna buy it to find out 1 I don’t get to see the movie and 2 the codes don’t even work.
