Players looking to nab a Hisuian Zorua will need to put in a little extra legwork, however. Because the pre-order code only grants you an already evolved Hisuian Zoroark, Hisuian Zorua is only available by breeding your new Zoroark with a Ditto. Ensure that it is holding an Everstone for its offspring to maintain its Hisuian form; without this, it will yield a Unovan version instead. Naturally, Twinfinite has an in-depth guide ready to go should you need any help with the process.
