Zarude Basic Information


Height 5'11"

The Rogue Monkey Pokemon

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.

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.
