Zarude is back in town – or, rather, Pokémon Go. This rare Dark- and Grass-type is currently available as part of the Verdant Wonders event, which is starting on March 21, 2024, at 10am local time. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to encounter the Pokémon for free: Zarude is only obtainable through the Rogue of the Jungle Special Research, which requires a paid ticket.

Aside from that, Verdant Wonders has free Field Research and a Collection Challenge to offer.

Here are all Pokémon Go Verdant Wonders Research tasks and rewards.

Zarude is quite a useful Pokémon for PvE content.

Pokémon Go Rogue of the Jungle – all Special Research tasks

To access Rogue of the Jungle, you’ll need to purchase its ticket from the in-app store or web store for a price of $7.99 USD or your regional equivalent – using the web store nets you 100 Poké Coins as a bonus. As long as you’ve obtained the ticket and logged in after Verdant Wonders has begun, you’ll have however much time you need to complete all of the included tasks. There is no time limit.
