Zarude - Moveset & Best Build for Ranked Battle

Zarude Basic Information


Height 5'11"
Weight 154.3 lbs.

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.

Hostile to Others

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.

Versatile Vines

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.

Appears in Pokemon the Movie: Coco

Pokemon Coco.png

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.

How to Get Ash's Hat with Zarude


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!
