Default First Gen 5 Pokémon fully revealed!

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.

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

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

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.

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:

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

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.

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.

If you changed the red to blue on Zoroark, it would look like a Lucario evo,

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.

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.

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?

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

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=

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.

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.

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.
