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.
