Zorua and Zoroark

The official Pokémon website has revealed two more of Pokémon Black and White's 156 new species to international audiences. They join the starter Pokémon and box legends as the sixth and seventh Pokémon revealed outside of Japan.

The Dark-type Pokémon Zorua and Zoroark will keep their Japanese names. They are to be classified as the "Tricky Fox" and "Illusion Fox" Pokémon respectively. These event-exclusive Pokémon will feature in the upcoming Pokémon movie, Master of Illusions: Zoroark. This movie is expected to be dubbed into English in 2011. Zorua and Zoroark were the first Pokémon released to Japanese audiences on popular TV show Pokémon Sunday.

Additionally, some move names have been translated. The move 「イカサマ」 Trickery is now Foul Play and 「つめとぎ」 Claw Sharpen has been renamed Hone Claws. The English-language release of Black and White will be in Spring 2011.
