If only datamining didn't unearth the model already from USUM, huh?

I've tried to avoid really looking into it at all, to try and keep it new for myself when it is released in an event or something. I guess there wasn't really a clever way for them to hide it better, but also maybe they expected it to be found and hoped it would build up hype about it.
If I'm talking a lot, tell me to stop squandering my free time, and to go and work on my hack!

I quite like it! When I first saw it in the datamine it immediately reminded me of something you'd see on DA because it looks more like a fan art Pokemon than a normal Pokemon. That is really cool though and I am excited to hopefully get one soon!

I like it! I hope it has a stronger role in the film than what Marshadow had last year, it looks like the young girl will get attached to Zeraora somehow...

Hey look, it's the furbait Pokemon! Y'know, the one that ripped off Lucario's design!

To be honest, I was totally expecting Zeraora. As was stated in the other thread, they gave it the Marshadow treatment by having the announcement tie in with a movie, and yet a fair few of us know about him already because of the datamine. Too bad he wasn't an Electric/Fighting type though, that would have been amazing. But then again, that would have made it even more of a Lucario ripoff.

A bipedal, Electric-type feline with Plasma Fists? I swear, this Pokémon was made for me! As soon as I saw the leak, it immediately became one of my top favourites. Sure it looks like a cross between Lucario and shiny Luxray, but I love both those Pokémon so it doesn't bother me in the slightest.

Looking forward to the film, that's for sure!

I love Zeraora's design, it's actually my favourite Mythical legendary of all. It's nice they've finally officially announced it too!

Now that I am finally seeing Zeraora's official artwork/model in action, I am actually a bit more positive about it. Sure I'm not sure about its design overall (It's an electric cat lucario) but I do like its crouching battle stance ingame. (Although that being said, why is it's tail on it's back?)

Zeraora is so cool 8D

It seems like it's going to be a partner to that small pink haired girl.

I know right? It's like a bipedal Raikou, who is one of my other favorite legends ^^

I really hope they don't release it via codes in certain countries, because it's really inconvenient for the rest of us to actually get the pokemon. I just recently obtained a Marshadow, and I'm still trying to get a Diancie, Mew, and Volcanion. Its just really annoying. Also, I'm not able to obtain the new Entei available in the Mystery Gift. Is it via internet or code (for the US)? Thanks in advance.

I know theres a small chance I will grow on it, but honestly Im not very keen about this guy. I dont think its good or bad, just no strong feelings towards it. Or maybe Im just more excited for gen8 mons.

I dont know what to say about its design, I mean, I guess its what happened when Weavile and Lucario had a baby that got thrown into an electrical power plant? Though overall, Im not terribly keen on it as of now.

I'll evaluate this new thing with as much brevity as possible.

I'm not a fan of Zeraora. Maybe it's because it doesn't seem interesting as a Mythical Pokmon. What makes it special? A signature move? It doesn't even have electric powers on its own; it just steals them from elsewhere. Why does it exist? Pretty much any other Pokmon could've taken its place imo. I probably wouldn't be salty about this if it were part Fighting.

That said, everything else about it is pretty solid.

I feel you. But won't that Fighting-type make it a Lucario clone? I wouldn't care, but many others do. I agree with you though; a mixed typing would have made this more "authentic."

In my eyes, signature typings are always welcome.

Yup. Honestly, GF has to be more creative. Hopefully, it's dope in battle, though. It looks quite cool, but I don't see anything special about it. Maybe if it had some interesting backstory or something... Also, does anyone know this thing's ability?

Zeraora's ability is Volt Absorb, I think that it is pretty clever with the flavor text saying that Zeraora doesn't have an organ that generates electricity, so it has to gather electricity from outside sources. That said, it also says that Zeraora is capable of using electric current to make magnetic fields so that it can levitate, but it doesn't learn Magnet Rise or have the ability Levitate.

These really aren't very "unique" things about it. And about the flavor text from the pokedex, it also says that Gardevoir has the ability to make mini black holes, so I wouldn't be too excited about it. I really do get pissed when the dex entries make no sense. But honestly, I'll just take what they give.
