Pokemon Sword/Shield: You Can Claim Zarude Right Now Thanks To GameStop Germany
The mythical Pokemon can be yours today.
Pokemon Sword/Shield introduced a new mythical Pokemon, Zarude, earlier this year, with distribution set to commence this month in Europe. Now, you can easily claim Zarude through GameStop Germany for free--regardless of your region.
PokeJungle has noted that Zarude is now being distributed through the store's website, and getting a code is straightforward. We've tested it in Australia with a local digital copy of Pokemon Shield, and now have a Zarude in our box.
Want Zarude? Here's a little PSA: the German GameStop site will let you enter your email to receive it! Just check the bottom two boxes and hit the red button! @JickNonsense noticed it😃Here's the link: https://t.co/onsCRSDxy5 pic.twitter.com/268aaFuGmB— PokéJungle (@pokejungle) December 2, 2020
All you need to do is head to this link, enter your email address, and tick the top two boxes. Within moments, an email will arrive with a code. Once you have a code, go to "Mystery Gift" in the game menu, then select "Get A Mystery Gift" and "Get with Code/Password". Enter the code there to claim the Pokemon.
You can also claim Zarude in the US through a separate distribution scheme, but the deadline to sign up for the newsletter is closed.
Zarude is level 60, and it comes with a held Leftovers item. It's a Dark/Grass type, and comes with the moves Close Combat, Power Whip, Swagger, and Snarl.
Pokemon Sword/Shield's second and final DLC, The Crown Tundra, is available now.
