Zoroark (Japanese:ゾロアーク Zoroaaku) 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.


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

  • Zoroark is likely based on Kitsune (fox) of Japanese folklore, a shape-shifting mythical fox that would trick unsuspecting travelers for fun. This is similar to Ninetales, another Pokémon based on Kitsune. It also resembles a werewolf, which is half man and half wolf, due to the fact that it is an anthropomorphic Canid, like most werewolves.
  • Zoroark is one of only nine pure dark types. The others are Umbreon, Poochyena, Mightyena, Darkrai, Liepard, Zorua and Purrloin.
  • 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.
  • Zoruark is the first Unova Pokémon ever seen in the anime. (Zoroark: Master of Illusions)
