How to Zorua and Zoroark in Pokemon Go
Zorua is a new Dark-type Pokemon added to Pokemon Go, but it might be challenging to catch in the wild. Zorua, like Ditto, can impersonate other Pokemon in the wild; players will only know for sure if they have caught a Zorua. Because of this, collecting the 50 Candies needed to evolve it into Zoroark might be challenging, but there is a strategy that makes Zorua much more accessible.
Zorua acts differently than Ditto, which can disguise itself as any Pokemon, by instead taking on the look of the player’s Buddy Pokemon. Zorua is far more difficult to come across if the player is using a Buddy Pokemon that is widely found in the wild (as Totodile is). If the player, however, swaps to a resource that is more difficult to obtain, the game becomes far less challenging. So, for instance, I switched my Buddy Pokemon to a Cosmoem in order to collect enough Zorua to evolve into a Zoroark. Since I had never seen a wild Cosmoem before, I immediately recognised the Pokemon as a Zorua in disguise.
Pokémon Black and White introduced the Zorua character for the first time. The Pokedex data for Zorua in that game stated that, for self-preservation, it may assume the identities of other Pokemon and humans. Zorua’s anime appearances have represented this quality, which hasn’t been seen much in the Pokemon games.
It was stated in Pokemon Legends: Arceus that Zorua has a Hisuian variation, although this Pokemon has not yet been seen in Pokemon Go. Hisuian Braviary, Sneasler, and Overqwil are just a handful of the Hisuian Pokemon that have been made available in Pokemon Go in recent months. Furthermore, Ursaluna, a new and improved Ursaring, will be released this month. On Saturday, November 12th, at Teddiursa Community Day, Ursaluna will be made available to the public.
