Tips and Tricks for finding Zorua in Pokemon GO using Buddy Pokemon

An adorable Pokemon has joined the most popular mobile game in the world. But don’t let its appearance fool you, it will trick you in less than ten seconds, and the thing is, you wouldn’t even know it.

The Pokemon that we are talking about is Zorua.

This one is known in the Pokemon universe as the Tricky Fox Pokemon, meaning that it loves to trick you. You can already see that in the game, where it takes your Buddy Pokemon’s form, and it appears just like it on the map. So, it is up to you to find Zorua on the map.

Well, the whole process might look really complicated to you, but the truth is that it is as easy as it can be. Only if you choose the right Buddy Pokemon, of course. Fear not, we are here to give you some tips and tricks on how to locate Zorua.

First of all, you need to know the basics. Zorua, the Tricky Fox Pokemon, is currently available as an encounter through the Pokemon GO Halloween 2023 Part 2 Timed Research if you complete the second step. You can get Zorua from there, and it might even turn out to be a Shiny Pokemon if luck is on your side.

The second thing you need to know is that Zorua takes the form of your Buddy Pokemon, and it appears like it on the map. Leaving you with a headache of trying to find it if your Buddy Pokemon is a “basic” Pokemon.

That is why you need to know a few tips and tricks about how to find Zorua on your map more easily:

  • Use a Pokemon that is a rare spawn – this way, you will know that it is Zorua
  • Use a Shiny Pokemon – this is very obvious, given that Shiny Pokemon do not appear on the map as Shiny
  • Use a Legendary Pokemon – also obvious, because we personally haven’t seen Legendary Pokemon spawn as wild encounters
  • Use large Shadow Pokemon  – easier to spot, and easier to click on it

Try one of these, and let us know if it worked for you.
