 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Zoroark is a part of the Borderline 2 (BL2) tier of competitive battling, which means that it is banned from the Rarelyused (RU) tier but not used enough to be a part of the Underused (UU) tier. With an extremely unique ability in Illusion, Zoroark can play mind games with the opponent and end up luring a certain defensive Pokémon that can be taken out. It has solid mixed offenses and two wonderful set up moves in Swords Dance and Nasty Plot. Its movepool offers numerous coverage options and it hits a solid Speed tier that allows it to outspeed Pokémon like Krookodile and Salamence. Zoroark's best set is a Choice Specs set that can dish out heavy damage with Dark Pulse while having good coverage moves in Focus Blast, Sludge Bomb, Flamethrower, and Grass Knot. Other sets include a Swords Dance set that can dish out heavy damage with STAB Knock Off and Sucker Punch, a Nasty Plot set that boosts Zoroark's Special Attack to frightening levels, and a mixed attacker set that can dish out heavy damage with great coverage. However, Zoroark is far from flawless, as it suffers from being rather frail, being beaten by many of the prominent Fairy and Fighting-types in the tier, and having competition in the form of Mega Houndoom, Hydreigon, and Mega Absol, all of which have much greater potential to being threatening than Zoroark to a team, although Illusion allows for Zoroark to distinguish itself.
