For a limited time, Pokémon Go players will have a brief opportunity to catch the mythical Pokémon, Zarude. This Pokémon will make an appearance in Pokémon Go for the Pokémon the movie: Secrets of the Jungle event, which takes place on October 1, with the film officially releasing on Netflix on October 8. When the event arrives, how can you capture Zarude and add him to your collection?
Zarude will be available to all players when it arrives on October 1st. However, instead of beating and capturing him by fighting him in any of the gym raids, Zarude will be a reward for the Special Research Mission Secrets of the Jungle which will be released on October 1st at 10:00 in your local time zone called Search Zarude!
When the event ends, all players will receive the Secret of the Jungle special mission, and you can find it in the Today View tab to view the tasks you will need to complete to complete the mission. You want to make sure you log into your Pokémon Go account to acquire the Special Research activity, but you don't have to complete it before the end of the Secret of the Jungle event, which is October 10. The Special Research Mission will still be available after 10, but you need to make sure you grab the mission to complete it, so jump into Pokémon Go October 1-10 to receive it.
With Zarude as one of the rewards, it will be like other Pokémon encounters where he can't escape and is a guaranteed catch.
