Hisuian Zorua and Zoroark revealed

Hisuian Zorua is extra cute to boot! Eat your heart out, Hisuian Growlithe.

Only two days after the mysterious static-filled trailer, we have our answer to what the mysterious new Pokémon is: Hisuian Zorua and Zoroark!

It seems the researcher escaped just fine as well. Going by the video description and the official Pokémon Twitter account, we have Professor Oak to thank for restoring the video. What can’t he do?

Thank you for your reports, Trainers. A few days ago, a researcher uncovered some mysterious footage of the Hisui region. Professor Oak looked through all of your findings and was able to restore the video to reveal Hisuian Zorua and Hisuian Zoroark!

Hisuian Zoroark seems scary…but it also appears to be protective of Hisuian Zorua.

With the help of Google Translate, the Japanese website for Pokémon Arceus: Legends states that Hisuian Zorua and Zoroark are Normal/Ghost type – how unusual!

Do you like the new variant of Zorua?
