General description:
I believe that this card is one of the best cards in the game simply because you can defeat your opponent with their own attacks, it has a low retreat cost and is a good card for any kind of deck as it has an attack that requires only 2 colorless energy.

Uses:
I would first play it on my bench until it has sufficient energy attached and then send it out against a Pokemon with a powerful attack to use it against them and end the battle quickly.

Strategies and game play:
There isn't much to say because this card is pretty easy to use, so just put it into play with either a double colorless energy or a combination of 1 darkness energy and any other energy, and use your opponents attacks to finish them off quickly.

Combos with other cards:
Combining this card with a double colorless energy will allow you to use his best attack straight away without waiting several turns adding energy cards.

Ways to counteract it:
The best way to counter this card is to have a strong fighting type Pokemon that does around 50 damage because not only will it kill this card in one hit, but if Zoroark uses its 'Foul Play' attack then it can use your attack against you and if you have a high damage attack then it could end up defeating you with it!

Strengths/Pros:
Decent HP at 100, Only a stage 1 so you only need 1 Zorua to evolve into it, can use any 2 energy cards to allow it to use 'Foul Play' and use your opponents attack against it, This card only has 1 retreat cost, a resistance of -20 against Psychic.

Weaknesses/Cons:
There is only 1 weakness and that is that it's weakened by Fighting and takes double damage from their attacks.

Variations:
There is a total of 8 variations of this card to date. This includes: 2 Rare, 3 Rare Holo, an Ultra Rare card and the 2 promos that were released

Artwork and aesthetics:
The devious look on Zoroark's face fits in perfectly with the dark type this card is given and also looks as though it is smirking while using the move 'Nasty Plot' to plot the downfall of its opponent.

Overall rating:
I would give this Zoroark and its attack 'Foul Play' a massive 10/10 because i have beaten many opponents with this card and believe if you are lucky enough to get this card then you could do the same.
