Both it and Zoroark were the first Generation V Pokémon to be revealed to the public on February 10, 2010.
Zorua is said to have a timid nature which lead to the development of its illusion abilities, Zorua keeps its true form hidden to ensure its safety, and takes on the appearance of other Pokémon to frighten off enemies. Sometimes it will take the form of a silent child in order to search for food. It have been known to occasionally replace normally talkative children. As seen in its movie debut, the tail of an unpracticed Zorua may remain when it takes on a human form, and if the tail is touched, it will revert to its true form. Zorua is mischievous and loves to surprise others. Night Daze is its former signature move.
