    N had a Zoroark in the last battle, not a Zorua. You get to find all of his Pokemon except the ones he used in the final battle. No one says whether he released them or kept them, but he owned a Zoroark in B/W.

    Only time a Zorua was shown was in his Flashback which was believed to be the Zoroark from his team, but it can't be since it was such a low level when given to you in B2W2. The Zoroark belonged guarding the castle belonged to N and was waiting for his Master's return.

    He was talking about N's real parents, not Concordia and Athena. The two told us that N had two HUMAN parents that were freaked out by his powers. Which was why he was abandoned and abused. N sought refuge in the Pokemon from a nearby forest and grew to hate humans for the hatred of his powers.

      I think it could make for an interesting twist but I don't expect there to be a Black and White 3, so his story would have to carry onto the next gen.

      Even then though you could say Zoroark is copying N the human.

      Very very interesting point. I don't pay much attention to the story line, I just press A a bunch when people are talking.

      I think it's possible that the "N" could be Zoarark. If he is, then I'd be impressed with nintendo. That would be a neat plot twist.

        no cause zorua can talk. cause in pokemon zorark and the masters of illusions

          I have nothing to add, except that I think that the backpacker in Lostlorn might not have been a Zoroark, but the transformation might have been an illusion created by a nearby Zoroark. I know it's a long shot, but still, think about it.

            I wonder if we are reading too much into this. It didn't take much plot space and it is unlike Pokemon/Nintendo not to tie up loose ends. Just my thoughts.

              Ghetsis does keep accusing N of not being human. Maybe.

                Because of his ability. His parents abandoned him because they saw him as a "monster". The people of his hometown didn't like him for what he could do so he secluded himself and befriended Pokemon because they accepted him.

                Concordia and Athena referenced that they also had similar backgrounds.

                  "N was an orphan. I heard that right after he was born, he upset people with behavior that suggested he could talk to Pokémon. When he was living in the woods with Darmanitan and Zorua, Ghetsis took him in. We are also orphans Ghetsis took in. Our task was to take care of N."
                  That is vague, especially when they weren't there.

                  And in the same game you can talk to N in N's castle and he says something like

                  "as a human?" That's a weird translation error if it is one.

                    There are evidence that tells us he might be a Zoroark but at the same time there are things that shows us he is human so i really can't be sure.

                      N's history said he was born in a small town. His Parents and everyone in the town did not like him and viewed him as a monster because he could speak to Pokemon. This led his parents to abandoning him in the wild where he was later found by Ghetsis who used N's power for his own personal gain.

                      There was no error in translation. N has never been treated as a human. Everyone around him saw him as a monster. His parents were both human based on the information given by his history. They were humans living in the village that abandoned him and scorned him for his ability to speak with Pokemon. Anthea and Concordia are the only people to see N as a human and not some strange extraterrestrial who can speak with Pokemon. They weren't freaked out by it.

                      Its the same story that was used for the Children of Viridian Forest in the Manga. Giovanni and Lance both went through hard times and were seen as monsters because of their powers. Giovanni eventually gave up and lost his powers while Lance (who in the manga actually had a lot in common with N as Lance wanted to destroy the known world so Pokemon could live peacefully).

                      N's history says that he is human but was never treated as such because of his powers. People with Birth defects in our world are treated the same. People that don't fit in with society or have odd occurrences happening to them aren't ever viewed as humans either. You can even push as far as X-men "special power haters" where is you had any ability that wasn't within normal human parameters you weren't human in any way, shape, or form according to society.

                        There's only one way to resolve this. Play the Japanese version and then get to that part, take a picture of the screen, and have someone read it.

                          I don't think so. This was already stated, but it isn't like Nintendo to leave something like that out. I mean it is possible, but I really don't see it happening.

                              What freaks me out slightly is the Memory Link flashback with the Zoroark visiting the house in Driftveil in B2/W2. That Zoroark proceeds to show you N's flashback. Clearly this could be looking back at the Zoroark's memories specifically, but it also contributes to the "N = Zoroark" theory.

                                  It's interesting to think that N could be a Pokemon. I really don't know, I hope so!

                                    Ok i have read all the posts so far & you all forgot something

                                    Pokemon Conquest

                                    In the Land of Ransei warriors can communicate with pokemon. If N's ancestors came from Ramnsei & eventually fell away from the old ways forgetting them then the story would fall into place. The parents not knowing of the warriors ability would be freak-out when N was born with them Does this answer a lot or am i just wrong?

                                      You might be onto something.

                                        Its called Ransei

                                        For those who have not played the game Pokemon Conquest. The Land of Ransei is divided into 17 kingdoms, warriors are the only ones who can communicate & use pokemon by linking with them. You are a new warlord that is trying conquer all the kingdoms & bring peace to Ransei.
                                        The warrior's ability & N's ability are very similarly. Which is why i think N's ancestors came from Ransei

                                          The most convincing piece of evidence I've seen is the one about Zoroark entering N's castle and then never being found. My mind isn't made up, though, especially after hearing "N's Zoroark," but then again, that could be a character who just doesn't know. It could be that no one really knows but N himself. Zoroark could easily pull off the illusion of being a human for a long time, but actually growing up as one with relatively accurate timing would be difficult, especially if he didn't have anyone to imitate (because there is no "other" N). However, I don't think the developers thought this far ahead, so I'm going to hastily vote "yes."

                                            I'm going to debunk this one now by pointing out N's final battle in B/W. There's a Zoroark in his party. Since this party is not available at part of "N's Pokémon" in B2/W2, I am now convinced that this Zoroark appearing in B2/W2 around N's appearances is in fact his Zoroark.

                                            What is interesting is that none of his seasonal battles (B2/W2, don't click them if you don't want spoilers) uses it.

If he did, he would doubtlessly have known that he was a pokemon. I'm sure Zoroark wouldn't have been able to keep up an illusion for years like that.
                                              Those two girls who were in n's castle (now in driftveil city) say n was an orphan. Squirtle thinks that would have been funny though

                                              No. Cuz if u bring the zoura u can get in driftveil city to victory road when u meet n (when u go the first time) he says something about it.

                                                If Zoroarks are master illusionists whats not to say that a pokemon wouldnt be able to train another pokemon. If you remember correctly there was a hiker in I think Lostthorn Forrest turned into a Zoroark and scurried away.

                                                N would have shown itself if he was a Zoroark. But his hair really looks like A Zoroark's one...+ maybe that's why he wanted us to release pokemon in B/W. Because he was a Zoroark, and had an trainer who...well you know. So the REAL answer is...

                                                We don't know. I mean, It's not even shown in the main story, not even in the after game, so the right answer is we don't know. IF they continue N's story in other games, then MAYBE he could be a Zoroark, like you say, if they do not continue N's story in other games, then no. He isn't. And I think the Zoroark who leads who to N's castle isn't yours, is N's...proof:
                                                What if you didn't train the Zorua you receive from the old plasma admin? The Zoroark that leads youto the castle will be a Zorua? I don't think so.
