Zorua, a dark-type evil fox Pokémon, is 2.3ft and weighs in at 12.5kg. This Pokémon evolves into Zoroark, another dark-type Pokémon who is described as a monster fox. This one stands at 5.3ft and weighs 12.5kg.

Zoroark also plays a starring role in the forthcoming Pokémon film: Ruler Of Illusion Zoroark.

These are the first two of the fifth generation of Pokémon to be revealed. You can read everything we know about the next generation here.

    Its quite a nice Pokemon, I dont really have a problem with it. It does look evil, yet awesome.

    The more I see images of it, the more I like it. I only hope they get more decent Dark Type moves into Generation Five though...

    If all the new Pokemon look as good as this, I'll be great! Unfortunately, I think they're showing the best first...

    Good to see that Pokemon are being based off traditional Japanese monsters (or Yokai) again, like in the 2nd Generation.

    Anyone else think that Zorua & Zoroark wouldn't look out of place in Okami? :D

    They look awesome. Zoroark kinda reminds me of Shadow.

    So far I'm impressed. I'll still resist Pokémon though due to my previous addictions to the franchise (meaning I miss/ed Platinum, HG & SS and the fifth gen).

    Cool Pokemon. Hopefully the rest of the 5th Gen is remotely OK.
