I thought I read somewhere that one way of transliterating the name would be “Zoroaaku”... “aku” is “evil”, right?( Note, I am NOT suggestinga pagemoeoranything dumb like that, I can clearly see that the official Romaji is Zoroark, I am just talking about name-origin stuff.) --LaprasBoi 11:18, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Well on Zorua, they've noted that Zorro is Spanish for fox, which is likely the name origin. With Zoroark, it might be combined with either "Dark" or "Aku", and Zorua might be an altered form of that, similar to Lucario and Riolu. I'm pretty sure I read that transliteration too; correct me if I'm wrong, but the only difference in Zorua and Zoroark's names is "aku". Aura-Knight 13:24, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

actually i translated it it really says; Aku Zorro... so litteraly Dark/Evil Fox so... Vkickass 05:03, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Actually I translated it and Japanese does not work that way it's Zoroark this is not debatable. 梅子 05:05, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

i translated it on google translater so... Vkickass 05:28, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Google translate's known to do that, you know. TTEchidna 05:37, 13 February 2010 (UTC)


I was getting sick of seeing the image which had been ripped out of corocoro with the big rip on it so i put it into photoshop and added the bits that were missing but i dont know how to add it


Nice. But see, we are waiting for the official art to come out. It will not take us weeks to get them, I guess. The current image is okay for now. Kevzo8 12:58, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
WATERMARK = BAD. TTEchidna 13:29, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
I think we should use this image for now (temporarily). Because its better than the current one on the article and the watermark won't be visible because headers are mostly small. We will change this image when a better picture will be available. What do you think?--♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 13:41, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
No, because it has a watermark on it. We will wait. -Sketch 15:58, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Oh, okay. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 16:00, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

I went back into photoshop and took the watermark off for you i hope its useable now :D - Louispierce


Looks OK. --GEN1KING 00:12, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
I think it is now supposed to uploaded onto the archives. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 00:14, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Huh? Isn't it already in the archives? I think it should go on the page, now that its ready. Unless, of course, everyone wants to keep the scan from CoroCoro. Spenfen
No, this one is on photobucket. It needs to be uploaded to the bulbagarden archives, located here. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 01:21, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, it is already uploaded on the archives, and has been for a couple days now. MaverickNate 20:56, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Why was the pic removed?PichuMaster 20:07, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, why was it removed? Was it because of the new one? Spenfen 12:45, 28 February 2010 (UTC)


Weight — 81.1 meters? LOL Santer 16:20, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Lol, I just noticed that thing. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 16:32, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
I'm allowed to screw up like that. We've had length/length in the TCG before. TTEchidna 06:45, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Possibly based on a troll?

The face of Zoroark looks to be of a mix of a fox, wolf, and a troll, due to its devilish smile. The pointed muzzle also reminds me of the tengu's. - 050294 19:32, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Maybe, but I think it is probably about 95% based on a kitsune. 梅子 19:35, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Well, of course. I just thought this tidbit of info would be a nice addition to the origins section. - 050294 20:37, 11 February 2010

Interwiki link to Pokéteca

There's an article about Zoroark on Pokéteca now, so can someone who has the ability to edit this article add in the interwiki link? I'd do it myself, but since it's protected... --Blaziken257 05:49, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

That sounds like a good idea --GEN1KING


i noticed that when you convert all of the pokemon's height/weight convert the length in meter to feet and inches it is the same as the us amount. So why doesn't it have it on the page? Zoroark's is 5'03" and it weighs 178lbs 13oz...Vkickass 04:57, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Because there's no official height/weight as dictated by NoA yet. That's why I have the meters- and kilograms-only way: because if we don't know what way Nintendo's gonna round it when converting to English weights, then we can't put it in. TTEchidna 05:35, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
For the height at least, NoA ALWAYS rounds the same way... all 1.6m Pokemon have been localized as 5'03". 梅子 05:43, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

see someone agrees with meVkickass 06:05, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Sh, Ume, you're making me look bad in front of the users. You're supposed to unquestioningly support me. D: TTEchidna 06:15, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

look who's full of himselfVkickass 06:25, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Look who missed the joke. The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 16:01, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

look who's a jerkVkickass 21:41, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

look who's blocked --electAbuzzzz 21:53, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Egg cycles and EV Yield

How do we know that there is only one egg cycle? Also, instead of 0 default EVs, shouldn't they be ? each? I dunno the specifics of unknown pokemon, but I really think it would be more practical to just mark all unknown characteristics as a ? --GEN1KING 07:26, 13 February 2010 (UTC) I agree. PichuMaster 15:01, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Default is default. TTEchidna 21:58, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

New images

Some new high-quality images of Zorua and Zoroark have been added to Poké, including anime pictures and the full Ken Sugimori artwork. Taromon 12:12, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

In case you haven't noticed, the header pic on this article is exactly the same one on pokemon movie site. I mean, the users have already uploaded those pics. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 12:19, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Oh, does that mean I didn't need to upload this? Taromon 12:24, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I'm sorry. I wasn't talking about this one. I was talking about the header image of this article (Header means the main image of this article). The image that you uploaded is also a good one and we can use it for their movie appearance. This one is looking good but try to upload images with png instead of PNG extension next time. Thank you. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 12:30, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
They are anime arts. Only Sugimori arts are to be placed in the Pokémon article. Kevzo8 12:34, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, we can use it for their MOVIE APPEARANCE in the future. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 12:39, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Redirect "Z" to Zoroark

Shouldn't we make Z a redirect to Zoroark because some people don't know about Zoroark? Spenfen

I don't agree with you. That Z was used for the movie' purpose only, Z doesn't mean Zoroark (if we talk generally). So, I don't think that we should redirect it. --♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 17:24, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
I actually think that is a good idea, in case someone hasn't heard the real name. CuboneKing 01:51, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

The Werewolf Pokemon

Zoroa is based entirely on a wolf cub rather than a Fox cub, whilst it's evolved form is based on a werewolf for it's posture, and is a common use of name for this kind of creature. - Cynthia149 07:32, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Um... no? It's a fox, this is not really debatable. 梅子 19:01, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

The new picture

The new version of the Zoroark image that has been uploaded doesn't look that great. It may be bigger than the older version but it's lower quality and distorted around the edges. I'd revert it but I'm not really sure how. Taromon 16:33, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Ya sure, I will help you. Just open this link and click on the revert button on the image which you want to use instead of current one and done. --♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 16:38, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Oh of course, I should have noticed that! Thanks. Taromon 17:59, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
I've just reverted it but it still looks the same, does it just take a while to update? Taromon 18:01, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
You have to refresh. ;) Sometimes you just have to refresh on the actual image and everything updates. Sometimes it shows the old picture, but the new dimensions, so it stretches. Blake Talk·Edits 20:35, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes that's what happened. Looks fine now though. Taromon 21:37, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon Sunday

Is there any information on today's Pokemon Sunday. Isn't there suppost to be info on Zoroark? User:Crazylegs24 19:44, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Isn't Zoroark the Monster Fox Pokemon?

I Thought Zoroark was the Monster Fox Pokemon and Zorua was the Evil Fox Pokemon. Aren't they? Because there have been a lot of sites that say so.Alpha`s Arceus 21:34, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

We use our own translations over blindly copypasting from all the other sites... so it might be different, but arguably a little more accurate. :x ▫▪Ťïňắ 21:38, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
↑What Tina said. There was a lot of thought and debate over what would be the best translations for their species names, and these were the results. We are not changing them to correspond with every other fansite out there. 梅子 21:44, 26 February 2010 (UTC)


Should we add a gallery? Plenty of art has been released. Spenfen 12:47, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

I think we should. There are also some great anime screenshots on filb of Zoroark and its pre-evolution. Zorua. - 050294 05:53, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

Zoroark = Shadow Ash?

Now, I'm not saying this is true, this is just something to think about that MAY be a possibility UNTILL the movie's released. I watched the trailer and saw Ash's interaction with his shadow self, and Shadow Ash gave Ketchum the same malicious smile Zoroark is shown to have in it's artwork. Zoroark could possibly be Shadow Ash. This makes sense since Zoroark is the 'master of illusion'.

None of this is proven, just a theory, of course. Something to think about till the movie's premier. - 050294 03:39, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

I think everyone came to this conclusion. Take it to the forums, please. 梅子 03:47, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Zorark's Abilities

I think someone should add how Zorark is able to change forms, or cause illusions as shown in the new trailer [1] I would do it myself but I'm not an Administrator.--Lambie 03:04, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Agreed. 11:41, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
