However, as the movie is only scheduled to be released in Japan, there's still no info on how those outside of Japan will be able to more easily receive these Pokemon. However, based on past events featuring Mythical Pokemon, similar events will likely be announced in other countries as well.

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 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.
|This Pokemon currently has no moves learned in this way.|
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.
Access to a plethora of powerful physical moves allow Zarude to function as a powerful physical sweeper. Access to Jungle Healing also gives it a niche as an offensive support Pokemon in Doubles.
Check out our article below for movesets and best builds for Zarude.
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.
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.
