More details about mythical Pokemon Zarude have been revealed, including its signature ability: Jungle Healing.When a Zarude hits level 90 it can learn Jungle Healing, which is unique to the Pokemon. The grass-type move is a hugely potent area-of-effect heal, which not only restores HP to Zarude and an ally Pokemon, but also cures any status condition.
The Pokemon Company notes that the move will be exclusive for Zarude in Sword and Shield, but that future Pokemon games may allow other Pokemon to learn the ability.
Original story: Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have revealed Zarude the rogue monkey, a new mythical Pokemon coming to Pokemon Sword and Shield.
A short trailer has shown Zarude in action. This new mythical is a dark/grass type Pokemon, who can use the Leaf Guard ability. The video description on YouTube claims that “When fighting, it swings around using trees and their branches, attacking relentlessly with its sharp claws or any other means it has. Its quick wit helps it excel in battles.”

Zarude lives up to its dark type by looking a little less like a monkey and more like a gremlin, with red markings around his eyes, fang-like teeth and pointed fur making him appear particularly aggressive. The trailer demonstrates him dealing a great amount of damage to a Rillaboom and a Drednaw.
