Movie Tie-In Distribution

Ticket Sale DateAugust 7th (Japan)
Ticket Cost1400 Japanese yen
RewardZarude and Shiny Celebi

Players will be able to get Zarude when they purchase a ticket for the new Pokemon Movie "Coco", coming out this Winter (in Japan). Players will also obtain a shiny Celebi as well! Pre-sales for tickets begin on August 7th. It is expected that the Pokemon will be distributed after you've bought your ticket.

Release information for North America or Europe has not yet been announced, so it is unclear how players in those regions will obtain this Pokemon.

(※) Note that North American/European distribution event may be slightly or entirely different from the Japanese one.

Uses Vines For Various Purposes


Zarude is a Pokemon that can be found deep within jungles, using the local vegetation for maximum mobility. The vines wrapped around its arms can be used to swiftly get from place to place, and also apparently have healing properties. Perhaps it will be able to use some recovery moves?

Not Yet Available!

Isle of Armor

Note that Zarude was not released alongside the Isle of Armor expansion! Although it's possible his data is in the game already, he likely won't be available until August 7th, when tickets for the movie go on sale.

Zarude's Move Already Implemented?

Alongside the Isle of Armor expansion, a whole bunch of new moves were added to the game. Among these is a move called Jungle Healing, which is speculated to be Zarude's signature move. This may have misled players into thinking that Zarude was already available.
