A Rogue Monkey (Zarude)Forum-Index → News → A Rogue Monkey (Zarude)
The leaves have long since fallen from the trees, winter is approaching. The days are getting shorter, and the temperature colder and colder. Slowly it's time to get cozy at home! ... But what is that raging so loudly out there? Is that a... Monkey?
Zarude visits Emera Town for the first time!
Many of you have awaited its appearence in town: The legendary Pokémon, Zarude, visits Emera Town for the rest of the month and presents interesting trainers very special gifts.
How to get its attention, you wonder? Well, perhaps interacting with many Pokémon will get Zarude excited!
The requirement to meet Zarude is very simple: Interact. Interact a lot!
There is no set interaction requirement - it appears randomly. Maybe after 100 interactions, maybe after 1,000 interactions - or, if you're pretty unlucky, maybe after 100,000 interactions.
When Zarude wants to meet you, a small icon pops up in your Userbar:
You can't miss it. Zarude stays there until you claim its gift.
Notice: It's not possible to have multiple Zarude in your Userbar at the same time. You have to accept Zarude's gift in order to meet it again.
Feeding berries (instead of "training" a Pokémon) gives a 20% higher chance of encountering Zarude!
Zarude will offer you two different gifts:
A legendary Zarude Egg and a Zarude Plushie (which has a 20% of being shiny). Tough choice!
Increase Zarude's shiny chance
You can actively increase the odds of receiving a Shiny Zarude egg by first accepting Zarude Plushies as the gift you receive. Every time you claim the plushie gift, the shiny chance for the next Zarude egg you'll claim increases. Your current shiny chance is always displayed below the Zarude egg option on the event page.
As soon as you claim a Zarude egg, however, the chance resets back to normal and you'll have to "shiny chain" the plushies again. So it might be advisable to stay patient until the odds are high enough!
And if you are superduper patient and want to reach a 100% shiny chance, then there's good news: The shiny odds are carried over to the next year, so you can continue to raise it year by year - however long it will take you.
