Zorua (Japanese??? Zorua) is a Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves into Zoroark starting at level 30.

Both it and Zoroark were the first Generation V Pokémon to be revealed to the public on February 10, 2010.

Biology

Zorua is a slate gray, fox-like Pokémon with red and black accents. Its ears are triangular with dark insides, and it has a large tuft of fur tipped with red on top of its head. It has greenish blue eyes with red eyelids. There are circular, red markings above the eyes that resemble eyebrows. Its muzzle is short and tapered with two small fangs seen in the upper jaw when its mouth is open. Zorua possesses a ruff of black fur around its neck and four short limbs tipped with red. Its tail is short and bushy. Zorua can change its physical appearance, though this transformation is merely an illusion as it keeps its own type and moves.

Zorua keeps its true form hidden to ensure its safety, and takes on the appearance of other Pokémon to frighten off enemies. Sometimes it will take the form of a silent child. As evident in its movie debut, whenever a Zorua takes on a human form, its tail remains. When the tail is touched or grabbed, it reverts to its true form instantly. It is mischievous and loves to surprise others.

Major appearances

Zorua (M13)

Zorua debuted in the thirteenth Pokémon movie, Zoroark: Master of Illusions, where it was used by the antagonist, Grings Kodai, to blackmail its foster mother Zoroark into attacking Crown City. It escaped and met Ash and his friends, before befriending Celebi. Zorua and Celebi were captured by Kodai, but were able to defeat him with help from Zoroark and the three Shiny Legendary beasts serving as Crown City's guardians.

Luke's Zorua

A female Zorua under the ownership of Luke made its anime debut in Movie Time! Zorua in "The Legend of the Pokémon Knight"!, when she refuses to play multiple roles in her Trainer's film. After reconciling with Luke, the Zorua took part in the film as the princess who is kidnapped. She is actually kidnapped later on by Team Rocket and rescued by Cilan and Ash. This same Zorua reappeared with her Trainer in Reunion Battles In Nimbasa! through Club Battle Finale: A Heroes Outcome!, in which she was constantly smothered by Bianca, and again in An Epic Defense Force!.

Other

A Zorua appeared in a flashback in The Island of Illusions!. It was a Pokémon taken care by the Nurse Joy years in the past. It eventually evolved into a Zoroark.

Minor appearances

A photo of a Zorua appeared in The Four Seasons of Sawsbuck!.

Trivia

  • Zorua was first revealed with its evolved form, Zoroark, in the March 2010 issue of CoroCoro.
  • Zorua and its evolved form Zoroark are the only non-Mythical Pokémon to have been event-exclusive for a time (prior to the release of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2).

Origin

Zorua is likely based on a fox cub, with facial markings resembling Kabuki or Noh theatre makeup. The concept of a Zorua still having its tail while in human form, is similar to the Japanese folklore of the kitsune, a shape-shifting fox who, in some stories, has difficulty of hiding its tail when it takes on human forms. Zorua may also be based on ninjas due to its special ability to use and fight with illusions, which can be considered a genjutsu (illusion technique).

Name origin

Zorua may be a combination of zorro (Spanish for fox) and rua (Irish for red, possibly referring to its red fur; madra rua is Irish for fox).
