Nice to have some new Pokemon. Will be interesting to see how many new Pokemon they add for the newly announced games.

Does anyone else think the name 'Zoroark' sounds sloppy, like they didn't put much thought into it? It sounds like they've got whoever came up with such pathetic names as 'Drifblim' and 'Dusknoir' working on the Japanese names now.

. . . But maybe that's just me being cynical.

I expected something better for its design too, but I guess it's not so bad. It's mainly the hair that looks weird to me - the black tips just seem a bit random. I do like Zorua though, it's pretty cute, and the fact that it evolves means it's not a legendary, which is good (we have waay too many legendaries!).

And just the general fact that new pokemon are coming out is cool in itself. =) Each generation there'll always be ones you like and ones you don't like, so I'm sure there'll be some cool designs on the way soon.

First thing I thought of when I saw \'Zoroark\' was an old PC game call \'Zork\'. The Zork series are pretty fun. In that respect, it\'s not a very original name for a Pokemon though.

I like the overall design of Zoroark and its nice to see more Dark Pokemon.

The Pokemon Zorua reminds of Skitty, but I don\'t know why...
