New Pokémon forms confirmed for Zorua and Zoroark in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Remember that found-footage horror video The Pokémon Company posted earlier this week to promote Pokémon Legends: ArceusAre you curious? The clip has been edited to HD quality. It gives us a better view at the brutal murder of the courageous explorer.

However, there is one thing I want to ask: Was it really possible for them to have digital cameras in the past? Keep in mind Pokémon Legends: Arceus is set in the far past — when Poké Balls were made of wood. (Also just kidding, the explorer was killed. The Pokémon Company leaves his fate up to interpretation — maybe he ran away?)

At the end of the clip, we get a peek at the adorable, fluffy Pokémon the explorer saw in the Hisui mountains: a Hisui region Zorua. But what we didn’t see before the original clip cut out was a large black cloud looming behind; it turns out, that’s what attacked the cameraman explorer. We get a really good look at Zorua and Zoroark — two ghost- and normal-type Pokémon — before they scatter off screen. The Pokémon Company had this to say in its YouTube description:

Some days back, an unknown footage was discovered of Hisui. Professor Oak reviewed your data and was able restore the video with Hisuian Zaorua, Hisuian Zoroark.

Hisuian Zoroark is a scary looking creature, but also seems to protect Hisuian Zorua. What else can we uncover about these Pokémon?

Zorua, is, indeed one Pokémon that fans were speculating on after the initial clip was published earlier this week — the big ol’ eyes and fluffy fur was a big tipoff.

Knowing that he encounter a Zoroark, we can assume a bit more of the explorer’s fate. We see Zoroark. These are intensively protective Pokémon, according to various descriptions over the years. They’re able to create illusions that confuse and disorient humans that get too close. You can find them in Pokémon BlackVersion white 2, Zoroark’s description is pretty dark.

According to legends, those trying to capture Zoroark were caught in an illusion and then punished.

Zoroua, for its part, can apparently transform into a human form — typically a child — so there’s that, too.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus Nintendo Switch will get the update on January 28, 2022.
