It is been quite a while since a new Legendary has appeared in our midst and I am happy to say I am not disappointed. Looking like an Electric-type Zoroark, Zeraora will be a welcome addition to our teams.
There is not a whole lot of information surrounding Zeraora at this point in time, but that will most likely change in the near future with the announcement of a special event I am assuming will be tied in with the Year Of The Legendary Pokemon event.
Zeraora is a purely Electric-type Pokemon that is apparently known for the ferocity of its attacks coupled with its sheer speed, which is usually a given for Electric-types. Zeraora is the only known Pokemon that is capable of using the move Plasma Fists.
Plasma Fists, aside from dealing a hefty amount of damage, enables all Normal-type moves to be categorised as Electric-type moves until the end of the current turn. This will include any and all Status moves. Following on with this, Zeraora will arrive in Alola with the ability Volt Absorb, which grants a quarter of its health back when it is hit with an Electric-type move. If this Pokemon is arrayed against you, definitely put the lightning back in the deck.
We will undoubtedly learn more about Zeraora in the coming months, including how to acquire it. My best guess is that a code will be given out similar to how Marshadow was distributed last year.
