Pokémon's Fifth Generation Begins With Zoroark

Scans from the latest CoroCoro Comic out the first new Pokémon of the fifth generation, Zoroark, the monster fox Pokémon and star of the franchise's 13th animated feature, Phantom Ruler Zoroark.

First shown in silhouette during this weekend's Pokémon Sunday in Japan, CoroCoro Comic magazine scans from across the sea have confirmed the mysterious creature as Zoroark, a monster fox Pokémon that begins life as the adorable Zorua, who is small, fluffy, and thoroughly evil, much like a Pekingese.

So technically these are the first two fifth generation Pokémon, but I never know if we should consider evolutionary forms as separate entities or parts of the same whole. Hell, I didn't even realize there were four generations for there to be a fifth of, but upon doing a little research I've figured that whole mess out.

Generation 1: Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow
Generation 2: Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal
Generation 3: Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald
Generation 4: Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum
Generation 5: Whatever is next.

I hope that clears things up.

With the revelation of Zoroark comes the true name of the upcoming 13th Pokémon movie. Originally called Pokémon: Phantom Ruler Z, it's now called Phantom Ruler Zoroark.

There've been 12 Pokémon movies? My goodness.
