Zarude Lead

If you're still on the hunt for the Mythical Pokémon Zarude in Pokémon Sword and Shield, a new way to claim the monster has now been detailed by The Pokémon Company.

Originally, players in the UK were told that they'd be able to grab a code for Zarude by heading to their local GAME store or via the retailer's website, but the online distribution never seemed to materialise. Thanks to this, The Pokémon Company International says that you'll now be given a code for Zarude as long as you've signed up for the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter by December 18th (thanks, Serebii).

The best news is that this offer is also valid for Pokémon Sword and Shield trainers across Europe, so those from the likes of France, Spain, Germany and Italy can also sign up and receive a code. Any codes earned via this method will be sent out in January, so don't worry if you don't receive anything straight away.

[Update]: These codes are now being distributed.
