Hisuian Zorua and Zoroark revealed for Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Pokemon Legends Arceus Hisuian Zorua and Zoroark

Earlier this week, The Pokémon Company uploaded a creepy, staticky found footage trailer. The mystery person holding the camera stumbles through the cold snow lands of Hisui before spotting a mystery Pokémon and getting attacked. The initial footage showed almost nothing, so we had to rely on the spoken description of the new Pokémon. Today we got a much clearer look, as the trailer has been re-uploaded without all the static. With our vision restored, we can see that the new Pokémon is a Hisuian Zorua, and a Hisuian Zoroark also shows up at the end! Click below to check it out.

Hisuian Zorua and Zoroark revealed

Add two more Hisuian forms to the list, as Zorua and Zoroark have now officially been unveiled. According to trusted Pokémon news source Serebii, both of these newcomers are Normal/Ghost-type, which is quite the rare combination! We have no other official information at this time, but based on the footage, it appears Hisuian Zoroark can be quite fearsome when it wants.

Beyond the reveal of these two new forms, the trailer has some unanswered questions. What’s up with recording equipment existing so far in the past? Does it have anything to do with the strange “Arc Phone” device? Pokémon Legends: Arceus will reveal all of its mysteries when it launches on January 28, 2022.
