Pokemon Legends Arceus Receives More Details And Footage Of Hisuian Zorua And Zoroark
Following its initial reveal last week, The Pokemon Company has released more details about Hisuian Zorua and Zoroark, new Pokemon forms which will be making their debut in Pokemon Legends Arceus.
This new batch of details includes a new trailer showing off the two Pokemon as they appear in the game, along with confirmation that they are Normal/Ghost types. In addition, a Baneful Fox mask player accessory based on Zoroark’s appearance has also been announced as an early purchase bonus for the game.
You can check out all the info below, via the official Pokemon Legends Arceus website:
- CATEGORYSpiteful Fox Pokémon
- WEIGHT27.6 lbs.
Reborn as a Ghost-Type Using the Power of Spite
These Zorua migrated to the Hisui region after being driven from other lands by humans, who shunned the Pokémon for manifesting uncanny illusions. But the Zorua perished, unable to survive the harsh Hisuian environment and strife with other Pokémon. Their lingering souls were reborn in this Ghost-type form through the power of their malice toward humans and Pokémon.
Disguising Themselves and Feeding on Targets’ Terror
If Hisuian Zorua spot a lone person or Pokémon, the Zorua may appear before them in a guise mimicking the target’s appearance. Unlike the illusions of the previously discovered form of Zorua, these ghostly mimicries are created using spiteful power emitted from the long fur on Hisuian Zorua’s head, around its neck, and on its tail. It appears that Hisuian Zorua absorb and draw strength from the terror of those who witness their illusions.
- CATEGORYBaneful Fox Pokémon
- WEIGHT160.9 lbs
Cursed Illusions Erupt Forth from Its Voluminous Coat
The spiteful power emitted from Hisuian Zoroark’s long, writhing fur projects terrifying illusions—and it can also inflict physical harm upon foes, damaging their bodies from both inside and out. And the illusions that Baneful Fox Pokémon projects have expressions of such utter malice toward every last thing upon this world that those who see them are said to be driven mad by the terror.
A Pokémon with an Unexpected Soft Side
Hisuian Zoroark is ferociously hostile and aggressive toward people and other Pokémon. But it appears to have a compassionate streak for those it considers close or like family. It has been seen to protect Hisuian Zorua, for example. Anyone able to establish trust with a Hisuian Zoroark would likely find it an invaluable ally.
Pokemon Legends Arceus launches January 28th 2022 for Switch.
