Prior to the start of the {{chap|Black & White}}, Zorua was with [[N]] since N was a child and is a part of the inspiration of the world that N planned to build. Years later, Zorua helped N [[release]] the [[starter Pokémon]] owned by [[Cedric Juniper]] that were meant to be given to new Trainers.

Prior to the start of the chapter, Zorua was one of the wild Pokémon that {{adv|N}} befriended in his youth. When N became the King of [[Team Plasma]], Zorua helped him [[release|liberate]] the [[starter Pokémon]] that [[Cedric Juniper]] planned to give out to new [[Trainer]]s.
   
Zorua appeared in ''[[PS477|Lost in the Big City]]'' spying on {{adv|Black}} in [[Castelia City]] under N's orders. It {{a|Illusion|disguised}} itself as a small crying boy inside a building. {{adv|Black}} noticed it and went over to help. Getting no response from it he went to look for a staff member and left [[Tep]] to watch over him. As soon as Black was out of sight Zorua showed its mischievous smile and turned back to normal. It ran around Tep and shoved his tail into his nose before running off. Having angered the Fire Pig Pokémon Zorua darted to the elevator disguising itself as a human, confusing Tep. After arriving on a new floor Zorua removed its illusion and bounced off multiple people before disappearing. Tep chased it and came face to face with another {{p|Tepig}}. The two begin dancing in excitement and Zorua took the opportunity to kick Tep down a flight of stairs. Zorua then turned back to normal and attack Tep by {{m|Scratch|scratching}} him. Tep countered with {{m|Ember}} but Zorua dodgeed the fireball, causing it to hit Black. Zorua then ran away, laughing at Tep's defeat. Zorua continues to spy on Black while in Castelia City.
+
Zorua first appeared in ''[[PS477|Lost in the Big City]]'', where {{adv|Black}} encountered him at [[Castelia City]] under the {{a|Illusion|guise}} of a young boy. Assuming the boy to be a lost child, Black attempted to find Zorua's parents and left his {{p|Tepig}}, [[Tep]], to watch over Zorua while he went to go find help. After Black left, Zorua revealed his true colors and attacked Tep. Angered, Tep battled Zorua, which took them through various different floors of the building they were in. Eventually, Tep defeated Zorua with a large fireball, forcing him to escape.
   
In ''[[PS485|Gigi's Choice]]'' Zorua sneaks into the [[Nimbasa Gym]] control room, tampering with the operation of the roller coasters during Black's gym battle with [[Elesa]]. It then sneaks out of the control room and morphs back into a Zorua and gazes at the {{DL|Nimbasa City|Rondez-View Ferris Wheel}} which is set in motion.
+
In ''[[PS485|Gigi's Choice]]'' Zorua sneaks into the [[Nimbasa Gym]] control room and tampers with the roller coasters, causing it to lock up while Black is having his [[Gym]] battle with [[Elesa]].
   
Zorua appears again in In ''[[PS489|Drawing Bridges]]'', where it raised the [[Driftveil Drawbridge]], causing problems for people needing to cross. Black attempts to cross the bridge and discovers Zorua disguised as a young boy. Black has [[Tula]] made a thread and throw it across the bridge to allow Black to crawl over. Halfway across Zorua turns into an {{p|Axew}} and cuts the thread. Black manages to get back up and the bridge lowers, allowing him to cross. Getting to the end of the bridge he sees Zorua disguised as [[Clay]] and has him team attack him for messing with the bridge. Zorua knocks them away, causing Black to use [[Musha]] to figure out what is going on. Figuring out it is a disguise Nite attacks Zorua and causes it to turn back to normal. Zorua proceeds to turn into many legendary Pokémon to intimidate Black's Pokémon. It then turns into Black and is defeated by Musha, who could find the real one thanks to his dreams.
+
In ''[[PS489|Drawing Bridges]]'', Zorua causes havoc on the [[Driftveil Drawbridge]], preventing people from crossing over it. When Black attempts to cross the bridge, he encounters Zorua disguised as a boy. By transforming into various Pokémon, Zorua harasses Black as he attempts to make his way to the other side. After using his ability to clear his mind, Black sees through Zorua's abilities and defeats him, forcing Zorua to run off.
[[File:N and Zorua.png|150px|thumb|right|N and Zorua]]
 
In ''[[PS509|Will the Truth Come Out?]]'', Zorua fights against [[Alder]]'s {{p|Accelgor}} with the help of [[Gigi]]. Accelgor targets Gigi to prevent itself from being hit by fire moves, but actually hits Zorua disguised as Gigi. Gigi then attacks with Ember and defeats it. The two are then quickly taken out by Cedric Juniper's {{p|Samurott}}.
 
   
Prior to [[Team Plasma]]'s final battle at [[N's Castle]], N released all of his Pokémon, including Zorua. In ''[[PS522|Homecoming]]'', Zorua helps N and {{p|Zekrom}} in their battle against Black and {{p|Reshiram}}. Zorua disguises itself as Zekrom to confuse Black. Despite this Black easily recognizes the real one and has Reshiram attack with a powerful {{m|Dragon Pulse}}. N questions why Zorua would take such a risk after he released it and Black guesses that Zorua does not want to leave N's side. N tells the Tricky Fox Pokémon not to take such a risk again and the two embrace in a hug. N then decides to leave on Zekrom and leaves Zorua behind despite its pleas.

In ''[[PS509|Will the Truth Come Out?]]'', Zorua battled [[Alder]] in a [[Double Battle]]. After a long battle, N and Alder are reduced to one and two Pokémon each, respectively. With his Illusion [[Ability]], Zorua disguises itself as [[Gigi]] in order to take an attack from Alder's {{p|Accelgor}}, leaving it wide open for Gigi to defeat it with a powerful {{t|Fire}} attack. Afterward, Zorua and Gigi are made to battle against Black's Bo, {{adv|White}}'s {{adv|Amanda}}, and Cedric Juniper's {{p|Samurott}}. The three fully [[Evolution|evolved]] starter Pokémon quickly defeat Zorua and Gigi. Shortly afterward, N restores his entire team with [[Max Revive]]s and then takes off with {{DL|Tao trio (Adventures)|Zekrom}} carrying everyone. As they leave, Zorua and {{p|Tympole}} use their abilities to destroy the third remaining [[Pokédex]] in Cedric's possession.

Prior to [[Team Plasma]]'s invasion of the {{OBP|Pokémon League|Unova}}, N released all of his Pokémon, including Zorua. Despite this, in ''[[PS522|Homecoming]]'', Zorua attempts to assist N and Zekrom in their final battle against Black and {{DL|Tao trio (Adventures)|Reshiram}}. Zorua's attempt to disguise himself as Zekrom fails as Black easily sees through the transformation and has Reshiram attack Zekrom, defeating it and N at the same time. Although N was confused as to why Zorua tried to help him, Black explains that Zorua cared about N and wished to stay with him. N decided to accept Zorua's feelings, but not before scolding him. The two then shared an embrace, but soon fell asleep from exhaustion.
  +
  +
After waking up, N rode on Zekrom's back and said his farewells as he left [[Unova]] to find his own path in life. Despite accepting his feelings, N left Zorua behind as he frantically tried to catch up with him.

N's Zorua (Japanese: のゾロア N's Zorua) is a Pokémon that N befriended in Pokémon Adventures.

History

Black & White chapter

Using Illusion to take the form of a young man

Prior to the start of the chapter, Zorua was one of the wild Pokémon that N befriended in his youth. When N became the King of Team Plasma, Zorua helped him liberate the starter Pokémon that Cedric Juniper planned to give out to new Trainers.

Zorua first appeared in Lost in the Big City, where Black encountered him at Castelia City under the guise of a young boy. Assuming the boy to be a lost child, Black attempted to find Zorua's parents and left his Tepig, Tep, to watch over Zorua while he went to go find help. After Black left, Zorua revealed his true colors and attacked Tep. Angered, Tep battled Zorua, which took them through various different floors of the building they were in. Eventually, Tep defeated Zorua with a large fireball, forcing him to escape.

In Gigi's Choice Zorua sneaks into the Nimbasa Gym control room and tampers with the roller coasters, causing it to lock up while Black is having his Gym battle with Elesa.

In Drawing Bridges, Zorua causes havoc on the Driftveil Drawbridge, preventing people from crossing over it. When Black attempts to cross the bridge, he encounters Zorua disguised as a boy. By transforming into various Pokémon, Zorua harasses Black as he attempts to make his way to the other side. After using his ability to clear his mind, Black sees through Zorua's abilities and defeats him, forcing Zorua to run off.

Using Illusion to take the form of a young boy

In Will the Truth Come Out?, Zorua battled Alder in a Double Battle. After a long battle, N and Alder are reduced to one and two Pokémon each, respectively. With his Illusion Ability, Zorua disguises itself as Gigi in order to take an attack from Alder's Accelgor, leaving it wide open for Gigi to defeat it with a powerful Fire attack. Afterward, Zorua and Gigi are made to battle against Black's Bo, White's Amanda, and Cedric Juniper's Samurott. The three fully evolved starter Pokémon quickly defeat Zorua and Gigi. Shortly afterward, N restores his entire team with Max Revives and then takes off with Zekrom carrying everyone. As they leave, Zorua and Tympole use their abilities to destroy the third remaining Pokédex in Cedric's possession.

Prior to Team Plasma's invasion of the Pokémon League, N released all of his Pokémon, including Zorua. Despite this, in Homecoming, Zorua attempts to assist N and Zekrom in their final battle against Black and Reshiram. Zorua's attempt to disguise himself as Zekrom fails as Black easily sees through the transformation and has Reshiram attack Zekrom, defeating it and N at the same time. Although N was confused as to why Zorua tried to help him, Black explains that Zorua cared about N and wished to stay with him. N decided to accept Zorua's feelings, but not before scolding him. The two then shared an embrace, but soon fell asleep from exhaustion.

After waking up, N rode on Zekrom's back and said his farewells as he left Unova to find his own path in life. Despite accepting his feelings, N left Zorua behind as he frantically tried to catch up with him.

Black 2 & White 2 chapter

In Frozen World, Zorua is revealed to have joined Rood's side as one of the members of Team Plasma who remain loyal to N's ideals. Zorua is sent out at Castelia City, where he is introduced to Whitley. Using his Illusion Ability, Zorua takes on Whitley's appearance, allowing her to leave her classmates to go find a microchip containing data that could counteract a Pokémon-controlling device created by Colress, the new leader of Team Plasma.

Personality and characteristics

Like most Zorua, N's Zorua is very mischievous, often turning into people and Pokémon to confuse or mock them with a wicked smile. Zorua has a close relationship with N and is the only one of N's Pokémon that tried to stay with him after being released. Zorua is also a fast and powerful battler, being able to compete against Alder's Pokémon. Zorua can also use his Illusion Ability to gain the upper hand in many situations. While he can take on any form he chooses with his Ability, Zorua usually takes the form of a young boy.

Being one of N's Pokémon, Zorua will have a sprite entry animation that is similar to the Shiny Pokémon sprite, but instead has its own sound and green and yellow diamond lights.
