Pokemon GO players praise Zorua’s encounter mechanic

Pokemon GO players are having a lot of fun with Zorua’s new in-game encounter mechanic in which Zorua appears as the Pokémon trainers’ buddy (even shiny), but when players click on it, they reveal themselves to be Zorua instead. The pokemon buddy of a trainer in Pokemon GO popping up all over the wild is a sight to behold, especially if that buddy Pokemon is Legendary, Shiny, or, sometimes, both.

As Pokemon GO players roam the real world in search of different Pokemon, they spot the rare buddy Pokemon they have traveling with them in its shiny form, and they’re thrilled to catch another one. Then they just turn around to see three more of that same shiny Pokemon appear, which is when they realize it’s just Zorua doing his antics again. Zorua is a Generation Five Pokémon, but was first made popular in the Isle of Armor DLC in Pokémon Sword and Shield.
