Origin

Zoroark is likely based on the Kitsune of Japanese folklore, a shape-shifting, mythical fox that would trick unsuspecting travelers for fun. This is similar to Ninetales, another Pokémon based on the Kitsune. Zoroark also resembles a Werewolf, a mythological beast that was human but could shape-shift into a wolf or an anthropomorphic wolf-like beast.

Etymology

Zoroark's name comes from zorro, which is Spanish for "fox", and "dark".
