We've already been introduced to the 'Rogue Monkey Pokémon' Zarude in the trailer for the upcoming Pokémon movie and it seems that Japanese movie fans who pre-book tickets for the Pokémon the Movie: Coco will be able to get their hands on the beast, in addition to an old favourite. The movie is set for release on 10th July, but according to reserving tickets now will get you not one, but two codes to redeem in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

The first will be redeemable from 17th April to 30th September and will get you a Level 60 Shiny Celebi, the Psychic/Grass-type Mythical Pokémon from Gen II. The second code can be redeemed between 15th June and 30th September and will gift you the new Mythical monkey Zarude, a Dark/Grass-type also at Level 60.

There's no word on if or when we'll have the opportunity to get our hands on these elusive 'mon in the West, although we're certain we'll get the chance at some point. Apparently these codes come with every prebooked ticket, so we wouldn't be surprised to see these Pokémon popping up on Switches outside Japan come mid-April. That is if we haven't downloaded them by an as-yet-unrevealed means ourselves by then.

Looking forward to catching these beauties in your Poké Balls? Reckon that the 'pre' in 'pre-booked' is utterly superfluous and should be excised from usage? Let us know in the usual place.
