Pokemon Legends Arceus Hisuian Zorua Locations & how to evolve to Zoroark

Zorua and Zoroark were already very popular Pokemon with their release in Generation V, so it's no surprise that fans were eagerly awaiting the chance to use their new Hisuian forms in Pokemon Legends Arceus. There's a rub, however - they're very easy to miss if you don't know where to look to find them. Thankfully, we've pinpointed exactly where you'll need to look.

This page details the Hisuian Zorua location for finding one out in the wild in Pokemon Legends Arceus, followed by instructions for how to evolve into Hisuian Zorua. This page pairs well with many of our other catch and evolve guides, such as on how to evolve Basculin, how to get Ursaluna, where to find Misdreavus, catching and evolving Hisuian Growlithe, and the locations of the elusive baby Pokemon Bonsly and Munchlax

Where to find Hisuian Zorua

The Hisuian Zorua location in Legends Arceus is found in will probably come at little surprise to folks who watched some of Pokemon Legends: Arceus' trailers - to find the new Normal/Ghost-type variant, you'll have to search for it in the Alabaster Icelands. The problem is knowing exactly which section of the huge map to check.

The secret lies in the zone's myriad cave networks - the Icelands are littered with these little holes in the ice that lead down into small cave networks, and it's in these where you'll be able to find Hisuian Zorua.

There's a handful of these caves littered throughout the map, and most of them have sections where you can catch Zorua, but for simplicities sake, we're going to highlight the one you'll be able to find right next to the Snowfall Hot Spring, to the East.

Once you've found the hole in question, simply head down inside and down a hallway to find Zorua's den at its apex. Once you know where to look, catching as many Hisuian Zorua as you'd like becomes as simple as checking this, or any other, of the area's caves found underground.

How to evolve Zorua into Hisuian Zoroark

Now that you've caught your Hisuian Zorua, after finding its den, you might be left wondering exactly how to evolve it - particularly if you've spared the trouble to go after any of Pokemon Legends Arceus' new evolutions for older Pokemon. That being said, it's actually not that much of a challenge.

Much like actually finding an Hisuian Zorua in the first place, evolving one is deceptively simple. It merely requires you to level up a Zorua to level 30, which happens to be the same level required to evolve the regular version in all the other Pokemon games where it's present.

If you want to speed the process up, remember you can trade MP earned for returning lost satchels for Rare Candy at the Merit Points exchange. It might take a little while to train your new companion up to the level range of the rest of your team, but that's not all that difficult by the time you've gotten this far. Have fun with your new Hisuian Zoroark!
