Tips for completing ‘Search For Zarude’
We advise all the players to play fair and not follow any malpractices while completing the quest. We take a look at a few tips which might help you get your hands on Zarude easier:
You should avoid any Rocket balloons flying past you, be alert and spot them from a distance.
If you are unable to find grass or any bug-type Pokemon, we recommend you to use a Mossy Lure Module at any Pokestop. When you use incense, it will attract different species of pokemon towards you which will help you catch a variety of them.
Getting five throws in a row is pretty difficult, but focusing on one Pokemon with a large catch radius, is similar to Wailmer.
We hope you catch your Zarude in Pokemon Go!
