The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo have revealed that Zarude can learn Jungle Healing, a new signature move introduced in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

The Dark and Grass-type Mythical Pokémon can grow vines from the back of its neck, its wrists, and the soles of its feet at will.

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.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
