Pokemon Sword & Shield is expected to receive its first Mythic Pokémon as Zarude arrives in the games in December.

Mythical Pokémon are those that can only be acquired through special events. This used to involve traveling to real-world events that were required to capture Pokémon like Mew and Celebi. Over time, The Pokemon Company began giving away Mythical Pokemon through online events that sometimes required serial codes from stores.

The first mythical Pokémon to arrive in Pokemon Sword & Shield is Zarude. It was supposed to be distributed earlier in the year as it was tied to the release of the upcoming Pokemon movie, but COVID caused the movie (and Zarude) to be delayed. The official Pokemon website has revealed that the Zarude spread is set to happen in December, although the exact method will vary by region. A video of Zarude in action can be seen on Pokemon’s official YouTube channel.

According to Serebii, the Zarude distribution in North America will include sending out codes to people who sign up for the Pokemon Trainers Club newsletter by November 20. The code will be sent out in December. British fans will receive a code for purchases in the GAME UK online shop as well as for physical stores that are still open. Spanish Pokemon fans can also get their code through GAME. The Irish, German, Italian, Austrian and Swiss fans can get codes through Gamestop. Fans in Belgium and the Netherlands can get their code through GameMania. French fans can get the code through Micromania. Portuguese fans can get codes through FNAC stores. Swedish fans can get their codes via Spelochsant’s online portal or Webhallen.

It’s a shame Zarude doesn’t get distributed through a mystery gift event like Cap Pikachu. You may have to jump through a couple of hoops to claim Zarude (depending on the region) but it’s worth it. Zarude is an incredibly powerful Pokémon and will be a worthy addition to any team.
