Remember that shadow that was shown on Pokémon Sunday? CoroCoro has just released full details.

The shadowed one is known as Zoroark. He is a dark type and is the Monster Fox Pokémon. The other one is his pre-evo Zorua, the Evil Fox Pokémon.

This information was just confirmed true by Serebii.net (http://www.serebii.net/generation5/).

The new Pokémon look really decent.
I can't wait for more information to be revealed on them.

I like them and I am a semi-fan of Dark Types :D . I just wanna get the Gen V games though :p

I like them, but it looks like Zoroark found its mother's lipstick. :P

Zorua
February 10, 2010, 10:08:10 AM
It's me! :D

You can tell i like the new pokemon alot because of my name!

Called it. Knew it wasn't a legendary. Just like Lucario.

I know a 5th gen pokemon I want in my team! :) Well, I can't wait to see Zorua and Zozorark in action. Still I want to see the starters. I knew you wouldn't run out of ideas pokemon!

Doesn't this go against the games/anime's earlier assertion that there is no such thing as an 'evil' Pokémon?

Either way, I especially like the little guy.

OMG They are so cute and I agree with the lipstick comment. Can't wat to get the games I will definetly be importing the V gen game.

...

They are actually adorable and menacing at the same time! I can't wait 'til generation 5! (I was dreading it before). *Goes crazy with smilies :D :D :D*

In all seriousness, I am actually surprised they look as good as they do. The blood-red coloring with the fact that its a dark type could mean GameFreak is planning on a more E10+ rating for the games later on, too.

I think this is quite amazing, the fact that someone almost nailed its design in their fan-art:
Look at this fan-art made by someone whom I don't know:

If the new Pokémon turns out to be something as amazingly awesome as this, I'll definitely go crazy.

Agreed. I thought of that too.

GreenLiquid

I wonder why their eyes are blue in one set of images and green in the other. Maybe a gender difference?

I think ALL of us want this bad boy on our future teams.

Freaking epic. That's all I can say.

LiteTheIronMan
February 10, 2010, 07:22:47 PM
Actually...

I'm not interested. This Pokemon, due to my preferences in typing, won't be on my team. All this proves to me is that the next movie is indeed a Gen 5 reveal, and that Gen 5 is in the works.

Although, the baby form looks so cute. =w=

Also dude they don't look like weasels with tails coming out of their paws.

Sableyed
February 10, 2010, 07:23:14 PM
I don't know. On the one hand, I like Dark type pokemon, and a Dark/Fighting pokemon would be useful. On the other hand, I hate Lucario, and this pokemon looks like the new Lucario.

I thought be more excited about this when I first figured out but I'm not I guess I'm not pleased until I see game footage.

new pokemon!!!!! Yes!!! Its is mine! I think that it's pretty cool.

Sphinx
February 10, 2010, 08:40:21 PM
If you changed the red to blue on Zoroark, it would look like a Lucario evo,

Flare Soru
February 10, 2010, 08:46:46 PM
From what I've heard...It's plain Dark.

Either way it looks pimp. I made a Mii of it...xD
It fails.

ALright, edited it up a bit and it looks a LOT better.
Unfortunatly it's still at the point where you'd have to be told what it is before you knew.
Of course my Luxio mii is brilliant and I know it would still require that...

I actually prefer the fan art. Seems a bit more accurate as to what it should look like. The actual art seems a little awkward and has strange color distribution.

But oh well. I look forward to playing with this guy. If a PBR2 comes out, his attacks will probably look cool.

Imagine this thing using "night slash" on somebody.

There is the question of why he can disguise himself. Does this signal he knows the move, transform (making three official Pokemon who can actually learn it) or does this signal new moves for the series? Or even a new ability perhaps?

I doubt this ability is just based on the movie. It has to be a preview of what we can expect in the future.

A small discussion, but none-the-less interesting to think about.

Edit: Sweet! 100th post.

To be honest, Zoroark's face is awful. I don't know why, but seriously, he looks as if his face got smashed. O_O

I won't give my precise opinion on the 2 new Pokémon until more information about them, such as stats and moves, are revealed.

I think you're right about that. Zoroark's probably going to be the Pokémon which transforms into the evil Ash that we saw in the trailer of the upcoming movie. Therefore, his ability/moves are probably going to be unique.

I'm glad I'm not the only one noticing this. Little things like that are very important the series, and depending on how well this Pokemon is stat-wise and move-wise, whatever new ability/move he has may be very important to online battles and tournaments.

Magmaster12
February 11, 2010, 12:24:41 PM
My guess is that it'll be like lucario.

I frankly don't care about stats...so I am judging now. :P
It's epic.

Same here, except that I am currently waiting for additional details so that I fully decide upon it. After all, stats, abilities and other information do matter to me slightly besides the look.

Yeah me too, but if Zoroark's classified as uber I wouldn't use him much then unless I want an uber battle.

GreenLiquid
February 13, 2010, 08:45:50 PM
I think I'll be giving my Zorua an everstone, because I prefer its cuteness to Zoroark's scariness. Also, why is Zoroark named after a gym leader?

I searched this. I can't beleive theres already fanart of this. xD

Poor Roark. He wanted to be a rock type. D:
That smug smile. I can't beleive im considering making this one of my favorite pokemon, before hardly any information about it came out. =w=

People are just crazy over these 2 Pokémon, but who's to blame them after all?

Flare Soru
February 14, 2010, 11:07:35 AM
oyea, there's TONS of fan art about Zoroark and Zorua.

I keep forgetting this place is competitive, so all the comments about waiting for stats and attacks keep throwing me off.
I say who cares?!?! xD

Sunny
February 14, 2010, 11:22:42 AM
I wouldn't say this place is competitive. Im still probably considered a scrub on real competitive pokemon sites still. ;~;

I bet its gonna be quick with a good attack stat. Like lucario, only with lack of special attack and maybe a larger attack stat then him instead. :V I really wanna use this guy in battle~! =w=

Sableyed
February 14, 2010, 12:29:29 PM
The way I see it, Zoroark IS the new Lucario. Gets his own movie, but not legendary because he has a baby form, Probably way over powered. The only reason I'm debating using him is because he's Dark.

This just might be the best Pokémon ever created.

Zoroark might be attractive to some people, but c'mon, I don't think it is to the extent of becoming the best Pokemon ever. However, it is only your opinion after all.

when i first saw zoroarg i thought its a fighting dark type
and i was right about the dark type yay^^
i luv dark types so this one will be totaly in my team

The Spirit of Time
February 17, 2010, 05:40:52 AM
By having the first Pokemon dark, I am sure that we will have a dark gym leader and many other dark Pokemon. However, it would have been better if it was fighting as well; it would cover its weakness.

From what it appears, I guess it is able to learn some Fight-type moves, so that makes up for it.
