You’ll need to break the illusion

The adorable and spiteful fox Pokémon Zorua has long been a popular pick by trainers because of its adorable design and its strong evolution, Zoroark. This guide will go over how you can get a Zorua of your own in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

There are two rather large regions where you can catch Zorua. One section is a large region that spans both West Province Area (Three) and West Province Area (Two). The other is the Tagtree Thicket.

I found my Zorua the fields next to the Pokémon Center in Medali (West). Catching Zorua will be a bit tricky because it will disguise itself as other Pokémon. The one I caught disguised itself as a Persian and revealed its true form on the first turn of battle. Fortunately, you will see it appear on the minimap so you’ll know you’re in the right place. Don’t use the Let’s Go mode — which allows you Pokémon to run around outside of a Poké ball and engage in auto battles — and instead just keep initiating battles with random Pokémon until you bump into one.
