Zoroark (Japanese:ゾロアーク Zoroark) is a Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V that is the evolution of Zorua. It has the ability Illusion.

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.


Zoroark appears in a new Pokémon movie called Zoroark: Master of Illusions. In that movie, Zorua called Zoroark "Meema" (Pronounced Mi-Mah) throughout. It may be Zorua's way of calling Zoroark his mom.

Pokemon Conquest

Zoroark plays a major role in Pokemon Conquest, as the Partner of Kotarō, with a +2 Night Burst.


Zoroark is the evolved form of Zorua as of level 30.

Design origins

Zoroark is likely based on the Template:WP 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 Template:WP, a mythological beast that was human but could shape-shift into a wolf or an anthropomorphic wolf-like beast.


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


  • Zoroark in the first non-legendary Pokémon to be completely event exclusive and unobtainable during normal game play.
  • Zoroark is the first Unova Pokémon ever seen in the anime. (Zoroark: Master of Illusions)
  • Zoroark is said to be on the list of newcomers for the new Super Smash Bros. game.
  • In Black 2/White 2, a Backpacker that talks to you about Zoroark and a new TM you received. The hiker is later reveled to be a Zoroark under disguise of a Backpacker, then you notice it ran away.
  • Despite (possibly) getting N`s Zoroark from the house in Driftveil City in Pokemon Black 2/White 2, N still appears to have a Zoroark, which leads you to N`s Castle.
