Pokemon Scarlet & Violet players will have the chance to catch the “Tricky Fox” Pokemon Zorua while exploring the Paldea region. It was initially introduced in Generation Five’s Black & White. The Pokemon possess a unique ability while in a party to take on the appearance of another Pokemon.

Zorua has remained popular since its debut but has again gained the spotlight after its Hisuian form was introduced during Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Possessing the Normal/Ghost-typing instead of its original Dark typing, it was a crucial catch for many exploring the Hisui region.
