Unreleased Pokémon


English Name: Kubfu
Jp. Name:

Type: Fighting-type
Classification: Wushu Pokémon
Height: 2'00"
Weight: 26.5lbs
Ability: Inner Focus

Kubfu was revealed during the Pokémon Direct in 2020. It is exclusive to the Isle of Armor DLC
This Pokémon is hardworking and strives to train both its body and mind. It uses each defeat as motivation, training itself with even more vigor after a loss in order to grow stronger. It has an organ that produces “fighting energy” in its lower abdomen, and before heading into battle, Kubfu will increase this energy through unique breathing techniques and intense focus. Wild Kubfu live in mountainous areas far away from the Galar region, but it was once a species that called Galar its home. It’s noted in historical texts that this species used to head to uncharted lands with people as they set out to trade or explore. Records suggest that the Kubfu living in faraway mountains today may have descended from Kubfu that became naturalized to the distant lands they visited in their journeys.

Kubfu will evolve into Urshifu Single Strike Style after beating the Darkness tower in the Tower of Two Fists or Urshifu Rapid Strike Style after beating the Water Tower.

Darkest Lariat

Urshifu was revealed during the Pokémon Direct in 2020. It evolves from Kubfu. It is exclusive to the Isle of Armor DLC
Kubfu will evolve into Urshifu after it has undergone sufficient training. It seems that Urshifu has two forms—a Single Strike Style and a Rapid Strike Style—and it appears that each form has different types as well. Urshifu in Single Strike Style form favor battling without holding anything back. When enraged, they will mercilessly attack an opponent until it is utterly defeated. A Single Strike Style Urshifu’s movements are often direct and involve rushing forward in a straight line. It will keep its distance from its opponents at first only to leap in close instantly to deliver a powerful blow. Urshifu in Rapid Strike Style form maintain a calm demeanor, observing their opponents and measuring their strength while dodging attacks. A Rapid Strike Style Urshifu will use flowing movements in battle to smoothly parry an opponent’s moves and then overwhelm the opponent with a flurry of rapid strikes.

English Name: Zarude
Jp. Name: Zarude

Type: Dark/Grass-type
Classification: Rogue Monkey Pokémon
Ability: Leaf Guard

This Mythical Pokémon is to be released in conjunction with Pokémon the Movie Coco. It was then revealed as Zarude
It can grow vines from the back of its neck, its wrists, and the soles of its feet at will. The vines are strong and flexible. They can be used to wrap around tree branches to move around or to grab Berries from distant branches. They’re useful for many different situations. The vines also have a healing property. If the vines are wrapped around a wound, it will heal.

Zarude lives in a pack deep in the heart of dense forests. It treats anyone that isn’t part of its pack with immediate hostility, attacking right away. This is why other Pokémon that live in the same forest are afraid of Zarude. When fighting it swings around using trees and their branches, attacking relentlessly with its sharp claws or any other means it has. Its quick wit helps it excel in battles.

Zarude's signature move is Jungle Healing. This move will heal the HP of both Zarude and its ally Pokémon and heal them of any status conditions.
