Who's ready for that new Zoroark mega in Z ver?

>tfw if they actually promoted Zoroark at the beginning of gen 5 like they are now with distros and such, we likely would be rid of Lucario by now

Nah, instead of trying to replace Lucario, they should have marketed Zoroark as a rival/"evil" counterpart to Lucario.

Still time to do that, honestly

Lucario is the lesser evil of the two.

>Lucario easily beats Zoroark in a fight
Steel type stopped resisting dark (for some reason) but I would never send a Zoroark to fight a Lucario.
>>
In the next Pokemon game Zoroark will use his ability to impersonate Dark Mewtwo.

Don't ask me questions.
>>
>>24614730
Ability: Hoax
Takes the form, typing and attacks of the pokemon in the above party slot.

(Damage breaks the illusion but reactivates next turn)

Lucario has a higher BST too

I thought Zoroark already failed to be another Lucario

I really like Zoroark as a design but I don't like the trickster concept and the ability.

Would you _hug a Zoroark?
>>
>>24614950
Mostly due to poor promotion when compared to Lucario.
Zoroark was near impossible to find ingame in B/W, while you were handed a Riolu egg during the story in D/P/Pt., they also starting promoting Lucario way before it came out and overall did a way better job promoting Lucario while fucking up when promoting Zoroark.
>>
>>24614970
I find it fitting since that it's based in a kitsune.
>>
>>24615006

Near impossible? It was a fucking event mon. You had to look at a Zorua in a book to register it in your pokédex and beg for one on GTS.
>>
>>24615006

The distribution was just one factor.

There were many others.

- Lucario's portrayal in his movie vs. Zoroark's portrayal in hers. The movie barely focuses on Zoroark, and she doesn't talk. Most of the focus is given to Zorua, who does talk.
- Lucario has a unique (except for Cobalion who didn't exist yet) type combination of Fighting/Steel while Zoroark is yet another mono-Dark type.
- Overall, Zoroark just wasn't as appealing to the kiddies as Lucario is. Zoroark had replaced Lucario on Pokemon Sunday, but due to demand from the audience, it was booted off and replaced with Lucario again.
>>
>>24614782
Damn, son. That's actually a really good idea.
>>
>>24614782

Zoroark would have made a great Waluigi to Lucario's Luigi
>>
>>24614885
Nigger that would require switching out and in. Youd have to m-evolve to get the new ability. Wouldnt work.

Why would they do that? I thought they were some kind of cross gen counterparts to begin with so I assumed they had equal BSTs.

If they were to adjust Zoroark's BSTs to be equal with Lucario's though, where should the extra 15 points go?

>>
>>24614721
well if the Ash Greninja becomes a thing that increases stats i think zoroark will get one of those

keeping illusion but just making Zoroark stronger
>>
>>24614730
Assuming it can't evolve while Illusion is active. I think it should have some kind of recovery ability. That way, Zoroark isn't fighting handicapped. Also, I hope it's a Dark/Ghost type.
>>
>>24614730
If they manage a way to no trigger the mega evolution text (for the opponent) it would be viable. Keep illusion.

Also it needs a greater movepool.
>>
>>24615050
>kids like lucario
>>
>>24614730
It'd be best if it just got a typical offense boosting ability, like Sheer Force. It'd work best in tandem with Illusion on it's own-- popping a mega out of an unsuspecting pokemon would justify the ability's use enough.

Not that Zoroark as is is great or anything, but most people have no fucking idea how to use it. They think that they need to somehow trick the opponent the entire match, when in reality you only need 1 turn of fooling the opponent to make the ability worth it. The issue stems from Zoroark's subpar offensive presence. It's just too average in combat. A mega with high offensive ability to take advantage of Dark STAB would find it's worth, easy.

it makes a good volt-turn core with manectric because they both have flamethrower
I don't play competitive anymore but it was a ton of fun when manectric was UU. Assault vest metagross for support
>>
>>24615679
well not really it instantly gives away that its not manectric because of no intimidate

Beedrill,Toxcicroak and Crobat are good partners for zoroark

Protean

>>24615650
Another thing people don't get about Zoroark is that they think you always have to use it with pokemon that use the same moves as it. One of the best ways to use this thing is to disguise it as the most threatening pokemon on your team then luring out and killing that pokemon's counters for it.

Pretend to be an Azumarill -> Flamethrower the Ferrothorn that comes in
Pretend to be Lopunny -> Dark Pulse the Tank Chomp
Pretend to be Metagross -> Dark Pulse the Slowbro
>>
>>24614721
I'm kind of hoping that if it does get a mega, it's a Dark/Fairy typing. It would be a unique typing, and more importantly would be a great reference to European folklore about "faeries:" fey tricksters and shapeshifters who love playing pranks, often through the use of illusions.

Might not have any moves to benefit from the added STAB-bonus potential, but Fairy doesn't have many straight-damage moves in the first place.

Adaptability

>>24615650
Zoroark just needs to have a wide movepool. It should be able to run things like GigaDrain/Energy Ball, Water Pulse, Flash Cannon, Aura Sphere, Psychich/Psyshock, Sludge Bomb, etc. No need to be very powerful, just type diversity.

Just with that, it could be used to fool the enemy easier. You could pass for a lot of Pokémon. Currently, you have Extrasensorial, Flamethrower and Focus Blast I think? At most you can pass for a Chandelure with Flamethrower but it's not very useful.
>>
>>24618578
its move pools already good
Dark Pulse,Flamethrower,Focus blast,Grass knot and now sludge bomb via event

Speed and lack of power zoroarks problem a secondary stab would not hurt

you fags got your sludge bomb Zoroark yet?
>>
>>24618981
Not worth it. What a lameass move.

But I'm glad it's not Lucario once in a while.
>>
>>24618988
thats true, however its nice to have it if any fairyfags fight you i guess
>>
>>24615599
Dark/Fairy would make more sense, as it'd still bring the typings of magical and mischievous into one. Ghost makes no sense, as it doesn't have a connection with the dead or death to begin with.

Speed. It's clear that Zoroark isn't tanky at all, so may as well make it also strike hard and fast at the same time.

I was going to go with all in Sp. Attack, but you're probably right
