New Hisuian Forms For Zorua And Zoroark In Pokémon Legends: Arceus Revealed

Last Update 10/26/21

After teasing the Hisuian forms of Zorua and Zoroark in a new Pokémon Legends: Arceus video released last week, The Pokémon Company has released a second video confirming these new Hisuian forms. 

The video above shows that Hisuian Zoura is pinkish-red and snowy white, which is an interesting change from the usual red and black designs. It’s dubbed the Spiteful Fox Pokémon as well. Its evolution, Zoroark, also has a new white and pinkish-red Hisuian design and it’s known as the Baneful Fox Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. 

These two Hisuian form Pokémon will be in Pokémon Legends: Arceus when it hits Nintendo Switch on January 28. Purchases made before May 9th will get the Baneful Fox Mask to protect their character, and the Hisuian Growlithe Kimono Set. You’ll get the 30 Heavyball Present if you buy the digital game before May 9.

Original Story: 10.2.2011

Deep in the snowy wilderness of the Hisui region featured in the upcoming Pokémon Legends: Arceus dwells a familiar Pokémon family with a unique form to this new entry in the series. A video released by The Pokémon Company shows the existence of Hisuian Zorua and Hisuian Zoroark, who are the first monsters to have a particular set of types.

The video, which you can watch below, is set in the point of view of an explorer looking to document wild Pokémon in Hisui with a “strange device,” which is a camera that shouldn’t exist long in the past when Legends: Arceus takes place. He’s first excited by the appearance of wild Snorunt but finds trouble when he ventures into the cold, dark woods. He comes across a little white Pokémon with a wispy red tuft on its head and a fluffy mane. Hisuian Zorua is a striking contrast to the traditional version, which has black fur.

Unfortunately, the dark shadow emerges from the trees, covering the camera and knocking it into the snow. Hisuian Zaorua is greeted by a tall, wild-haired Hisuian Ziroark. They both look at the camera once more and then turn their attention to the safety of the forest.

Both of these new forms have been confirmed by Joe Merrick at to be Normal and Ghost-type, a first-time type combination for any Pokémon. Because Zoroark and Standard Zorua are only Dark, these two new forms are very similar thematically. With the discovery of this duo, the total count of Hisuian forms doubles to a total of four, and the brand new Pokémon count stands at three for now.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is an upcoming Pokémon adventure that takes place long ago in the Hisui region, now known as Sinnoh. Trainers will embark on missions accepted in towns and venture out into the wild to catch and battle with Pokémon. It’s a dramatic change in the game style compared to the recent Sword and Shield or Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, which will release in November. Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a Switch exclusive set to launch on January 28, 2022
