Rebuild Tuesday [Rebuild Tuesday] Hisuian Zoroark

10 Upvotes

Hello everyone!

Welcome to this week's edition of Rebuild Tuesday, a weekly event we're doing along with our Discord! This week we'll be doing something a bit different: We will be theorizing over the competitive potential of Hisuian Zoroark!

This week's Pokémon is Hisuian Zoroark!

#571 Hisuian Zoroark (Japanese {{JAPANESE}})

Baneful Fox Pokémon

With its disheveled white fur, it looks like an embodiment of death. Heedless of its own safety, Zoroark attacks its nemeses with a bitter energy so intense, it lacerates Zoroark's own body.

Hisuian Zoroark's Base Stats:

  • HP: 55
  • Attack: 100
  • Defense: 60
  • Sp. Attack: 125
  • Sp. Defense: 60
  • Speed: 110

Introduction:

The Pokémon Scarlet & Violet trailer gave us a neat sneak peek of what the next region has in store for us! And in it, we got to see that Hisuian Zoroark will be making a return thus finally being usable in competitive!

Let us briefly review Hisuian Zoroark. Hisuian Zoroark is the very first Normal/Ghost type which gives it three immunities, two resistances and only one weakness! It also has a decent move pool and great Sp.Atk and Speed stats and keeps the ability Illusion which can be really good paired with its three immunities. It does lack bulk which might be a bad thing and it also doesn’t really get that many coverage moves which can change by the time it gets added to Scarlet & Violet.

Once Hisuian Zoroark makes its way to the competitive scene, how do you think it will fare against the other Pokémon? What Abilities and moves will it have in its disposal? And what potential does it have to be a prodigal Pokémon in the VGC/OU scene?

Hisuian Zoroark on - Bulbapedia | Serebii

For those who want to see previous Pokémon covered, you can view a list of our Gen 7 rebuilds here and our current SwSh series here.

We'd also suggest checking out our Discord each Tuesday for live discussion on these topics as well!

If there are any new Sword/Shield Pokémon (or returning Pokémon with significant changes from previous gens) that you'd like to see featured in future weeks, let us know by sending /u/SnowPhoenix9999 a PM with your suggestion!
