Pokemon Sword/Shield – Jungle Healing move revealed for Zarude

The Pokemon Company today offered up the latest news about Zarude in Pokemon Sword/Shield.

In the game, when Zarude is raised to level 90, it can learn the new Grass-type move called Jungle Healing. It’s said that the move will provide some recovery.

Here’s the full announcement with all of the details:

Zarude is a Dark- and Grass-type Pokémon that can grow vines from the back of its neck, its wrists, and the soles of its feet at will.

Name: Zarude
Category: Rogue Monkey Pokémon
Height: 5′11″
Weight: 154.3 lbs.
Type: Dark/Grass

Once Zarude reaches Lv. 90, it can learn Jungle Healing, a unique move only it can learn. In this Grass-type status move, the Pokémon wraps its vines around trees, absorbs their energy, and then releases that energy combined with its own. Healing power radiates around the area and heals both Zarude and its ally Pokémon – restoring their HP and curing them of any status conditions.

Zarude is only available in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield video games and can’t be encountered in regular gameplay.
