It can only be obtained by either evolving a [[Zorua]], though it could once be obtained through an event by transferring either a Shiny [[Entei]], [[Suicune]], or [[Raikou]]. By bringing the legendary with you in your party, you can initiate a event where you get to face a girl in a trailer located in [[Lostlorn Forest]], who has what seems to be one of the three Legendary Beasts. Attacking it, however, reveals that its actually a Zoroark, and can be captured. When caught, it will know the moves [[Fury Swipes]], [[Faint Attack]], [[Scary Face]], [[Taunt]], and [[Night Burst]].
