A new event is now underway in Pokemon Sword and Shield. To celebrate Halloween, a variety of ghost and dark type Pokemon appear more frequently in Nintendo Switch games, including Shiny Zoroark.
During the event, you will have a better chance of encountering Thievul, Dusknoir, Corviknight, Sableye and Zoroark in the Max Raid lairs in the Wild Area, Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra areas. As mentioned, you will also have the option of catching Shiny Zoroark in five-star raids, although it will be much rarer.
Zoroark and its pre-evolved form, Zorua, will both have new forms in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, which launches for Nintendo Switch on January 28th. New regional variants calledwill make their debut in the upcoming game. Unlike their standard forms, these variants are of the normal / ghost type rather than the dark type.
Zoroark isn’t the only Shiny Pokemon Sword and Shield players can get right now. GameStop stores in the United States are currently distributing cards with codes for one. Shiny Zacian codes will be distributed until November 11th, while Shiny Zamazenta codes will be distributed from November 12th to 26th.
