Pokémon Sword And Shield Zarude Distribution Announced For Several Countries Outside Japan

Zarude Sword and Shield

Zarude, a Mythical Pokémon released in Pokémon Sword and Shield, will soon be available to players outside of Japan for the first time.

The Pokémon was first distributed to Japanese players this August who preordered tickets to the upcoming movie. A second Zarude distribution, featuring a new form of the Pokémon, has also been announced for the country.

Now, though, a new event has been announced for Germany, Austria and Switzerland (thanks, Serebii). This distribution ties in with the launch of Vivid Voltage, a new Trading Card Game expansion which stars the Pokémon, and offers players a serial code to obtain it.

The event will reportedly run from 13th November to 13th December. No other distributions have been announced for other countries just yet, but we’d expect to see other regions follow suit as Zarude slowly makes its way to players around the world.
