Zarude is a Mythical Pokémon that you can catch in Pokémon Go. It makes its first appearance during the Pokémon the movie: Secrets of the Jungle event and all players should be able to catch it for a limited time. However, when you get it, we highly recommend that you consider turning it on and using it in the Master League. For these battles, what is the best moveset he can use?



Zarude is a Dark and Grass type Pokémon. It will be weak against Bug, Fairy, Fighting, Fire, Flying, Ice, and Poison-type moves, but is resistant to Dark, Electric, Ghost, Grass, Earth, Psychic, and Water-type attacks. It has a wide variety of weaknesses and an equal amount of resistances, making it a technical and unique choice if you plan to use it in the Master League. However, its overall moveset will be an ideal choice for countering some of the powerful Ghost and Psychic-types that appear during these battles.

These are all the moves Zarude can learn.

Quick moves

  • Bite (dark type) - 4 damage and 2 energy per turn (4 damage per turn) - 1 turn
  • Whip Vine (Grass type) - 5 damage and 4 energy per turn (2,5 damage per turn) - 2 turns

Moves loaded

  • Dark Pulse (dark type) - 80 damage and 50 energy
  • Energy Ball (Grass-type) - 90 damage and 55 energy (10% chance to lower an opponent's defenses by one rank)
  • Power Whip (grass type) - 90 damage and 50 energy

When it comes to choosing the best quick move, you want to go with the vine whip. While you don't deal as much damage per turn as the bite does, Zarude receives double the energy when you use Climbing Whip, meaning you'll be able to use this Pokémon's Charged Moves much more often during a battle.



For charged moves, you'll have two choices to make if you plan on unlocking Zarude's second charged move. Of those available, we recommend that you go with the Power Whip first. It's a solid Grass-type attack, perfect for taking out any Earth, Rock, and Water-types it might encounter. For the second option, you want to go with the dark wrist. That way, you're not stuck using all of Zarude's Grass-type moves, but Dark Pulse is also a great attack to use against any Ghost and Psychic-types that commonly appear in the Master League.



The best moveset Zarude can use in Pokémon Go is the fast-moving climbing whip and the dark pulse charged moves and powerful whip.
