The New Legendary Pokémon, Zarude, Has Been Released

Check Your Emails Pokémon Fans

About a month ago we sent out a little tip on how to prepare for the release of the latest legendary Pokémon, Zarude in order to ensure you did not miss on the opportunity to claim the rogue monkey. Anyone who signed up for the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter and opted in to email marketing by November 20th was put on the list to receive their very own Zarude this December when the Pokémon gets released via a serial code found in the December newsletter.

According to a tweet sent out by Serebii earlier this week, there have been reports of Pokémon fans having already received their codes.

If you managed to successfully sign up for the Pokémon Training Club newsletter before November 20th, then make sure to keep an eye on your email over the next week as the email could appear in your inbox at any point. Here are a few things to know when you get your code. For starters, you have to redeem it by March 31st, 2021–otherwise known as Mario’s doomsday.

Here is a breakdown on how to redeem the codes:

  1. Load up your Pokémon Sword or Shield save file
  2. From there, open the in game menu with the X button
  3. Then click on the Mystery Gift option
  4. Now, select “Get a Mystery Gift”
  5. Choose the “Get with Code/Password”
  6. Finally, type in your Zarude code and you are set!
