How to Get Special Hisuian Zoroark in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

In order to get Special Hisuian Zoroark you will have to make an early purchase of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC before October 31, 2023.

Will I Be Able to Get Special Hisuian Zoroark Without Purchasing the DLC Early?

The official information given says that the special Hisuian Zoroark can’t be acquired through regular gameplay. At first glance — this may make you think that you will never be able to get them without the early purchase of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero. However, in the small text, there is mention of the possibility to get Hisuian Zoroark “in different ways in the future” which means there is a chance.

It is unknown as of yet what these different ways would be but for the time being, it will be best to stick to the regular Mystery gifts method of early purchasing the DLC. You can add this special Pokemon to your ranks along with those such as Flying Pikachu.
