As a promotional tie-in with Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle, Dada Zarude and Shiny Celebi are being added to Pokémon Sword and Shield. Dada Zarude is a special alternate version of Gen 8’s mythical baboon Pokémon Zarude from the film, while Shiny Celebi is a sparkly version of the Gen 2 legendary Pokémon with an alternate colour palette.
Dada Zarude is basically Zarude with a cape and a special Gigantamax form. If that interests you, then you’re in the right place. We’ll explain how to get both of the rare Pokémon below.
To get Dada Zarude and Shiny Celebi in Pokémon Sword and Shield, you’ll need to sign up for the Pokemon Trainer Club Newsletter by September 25, 2021. In an upcoming newsletter, you’ll receive two different Mystery Gift codes to redeem in the Switch game. One code will give you a Dada Zarude from Secrets of the Jungle, while the other will give you a pink Shiny Celebi.
If you want to sign up for the Pokémon Trainer Club Newsletter, head over to the Pokemon website, and click create an account under the section labeled “Join the Pokémon Trainer Club!”. If you already have an account then just log in.
Once you’re on an account, you’ll need to your profile and tick the relevant box under “Marketing Preferences” to make sure you’re sent the exclusive codes in the newsletter at the start of October.
The deadline for newsletter sign-ups if you want the codes is September 25th, so do it as soon as possible.
If you’re a Pokémon fan that thinks Dada Zarude looks like a cool guy, you won’t want to miss the next Pokemon feature film. Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle will make its debut on Netflix in every region where the service is available other than Japan, China and Korea. It tells the story of Ash Ketchum’s encounter with a young boy named Koko that was raised in the jungle by Pokémon.
The 23rd Pokemon anime movie releases on October 8, 2021, but you can add it to your watch list now in a web browser and be notified by Netflix when you can eventually watch it.
