Zoroark, and it's pre-evolution Zorua, are based on the mythical vulpine creature know as a Kitsune from Japanese folklore. The mythical Kitsune is a well known in Japanese lore as a shape-shifting fox who plays tricks on unsuspecting travelers for it's own amusement.
The only current method of obtaining a Zoroark is through a special event in Lostlorn Forest. The player must bring a shiny beast (Which was an Entei, Rikou, or Suicune only obtainable in Japan) to a lone camper van usually occupied only by a silent woman. When the shiny beast is in the player's party, the woman bursts out of the van in an angry rage, instantly starting a battle. This woman is actually a disguised female Zoroark.
As a Pokemon fan favorite, many that follow the game series have speculated if Zoroark will attain a Mega Evolutionary form in the future games to come.
