Two Brand New Pokemon

A leak from all the way across the Pacific.

There’s been a week of teasing since the last episode of Pokemon aired in Japan this past Sunday. A week of rumor. A week of speculation.

All because of one maddeningly-mysterious silhouette.

Well, now, a big fluorescent light’s shining on that silhouette, revealing what was once so frustratingly-hidden in the shadows.

Behold… Zorua, and its bigger, meaner, sleeker evolution Zoroark.

Cutey Fox & Deadly Fox.

Most leaks come courtesy of a poorly-maintained faucet, but this one drips along to us from Japan’s CoroCoro magazine by way of IGN. If you can read Japanese, you’ll find a few more hints in the clipping to the left about these two Dark Type Pocket Monsters, who you’ll finally get a chance to catch once the 5 Generation of Pokemon RPGs hit here.

Actually, depending on which one reaches our fair shores first (or which you can get super-secret-import access to earlier), you might get to see Zoroark before those RPGs hit, because the “evil fox Pokemon” will appear in the forthcoming POKEMON movie #13.

So how this duo stack up to previous teased Pokemon, oh maniacal Anime Vice community? Do they live up to the anticipation, or are you feeling a downer after a bunch of empty hype? Let your feelings be known!

The little crunchy the one on the right has in its hair looks stupid.

I don't care how many new Pokemon they make. To me there will only truly be 251 Pokemon. No more, no less.

OMG, how many pokemon are out there?
danielm staff on Feb. 11, 2010 at 3:42 p.m.
For some reason I have an unbridled urge to catch them all.
Void_Wizardon Feb. 11, 2010 at 3:55 p.m.
I gotta catch 'em all again!

I tried to "catch em all" in the fourth gen, got 410-ish, man it bugged me how most of the Gold/Silver once were frikkin impossible. I still have a half finished copy of Fire Red somewhere that I started playing just to get the legendaries. 
 
Fifth gen sounds awesome, though I no longer play every installment in the series, I can live with playing one each gen. I just hope I can transfer my pokemon from Diamond :3

...And I just finished my Pokedex for the 4th generation a few months back...Now I get to catch more to fill my kleptomaniac needs. XD;;
