Zarude, a whole new legendary Pokemon, is poised to make its debut, which can always bring up different sorts of questions while people wait. For example, people might wonder what the character might be capable of doing in Pokemon Sword and Shield. While the whole Zarude moveset hasn’t been revealed yet, we do know its signature move is Jungle Healing. However, you’ll have to work to earn it.
To add Jungle Healing to Zarude’s moveset, you’ll first need to work with the monkey and its level up to 90. Only then will it have the chance to learn the grass-type move that heals every Pokemon you have on the field. So if Zarude is alone, then Jungle Healing will only heal itself, restoring its HP and removing negative status effects. If you are in a doubles battle, the other Pokemon on your side will also be healed. As it is Zarude’s signature move in Pokemon Sword and Shield, the official website reminded people only it will be able to learn it.
Two Jungle Healing screenshots were also shared alongside the official art. In the second one, we can see its vines reaching out to the forest to rejuvenate itself.
Pokemon Sword and Shield are immediately available for the Nintendo Switch. Zarude will make its animated debut in Pokemon the Movie: Coco on July 10, 2020. While its western game debut hasn’t been announced, people who see the movie in Japan and get advance tickets can acquire the character on June 15, 2020.
