[OVERVIEW]
Zoroark is a niche wallbreaker, with Illusion letting it make the most of its offensive stats, which would otherwise pale in comparison to other wallbreakers. It can function as an effective lure on bulky offense teams, getting past foes like Cofagrigus and Ferroseed under the guise of sweepers like Heracross or passive Pokemon like Qwilfish. Zoroark's Speed tier allows it to check Pokemon like Victini, Roserade, and Zapdos, but it can only tie with Mienshao and is very susceptible to opposing Choice Scarf users. Zoroark is generally rather easy to revenge kill once its cover is blown due to its frailty and lacking resistances.

Flamethrower gives Zoroark means of hitting Bronzong and common Dark-resistant foes like Heracross and Cobalion. Focus Blast allows Zoroark to hit foes like Scrafty, Empoleon, and Snorlax harder. Also, Trick can cripple bulkier Pokemon such as Umbreon. Fighting-types like Choice Scarf Mienshao and Heracross appreciate Zoroark crippling foes like Gligar with Trick or muscling past Pokemon like Cofagrigus. In return, they're able to check Pokemon like Umbreon and Cobalion. Rapid Spin from Blastoise is also beneficial to keep Illusion's effectiveness intact. If opponents see a Pokemon take Stealth Rock damage that doesn't match up with its typing, they can know the Pokemon is actually Zoroark. Setup sweepers such as Cobalion and Raikou also appreciate Zoroark luring in Pokemon like the aforementioned Cofagrigus and Rhyperior, respectively.

Since there is no OO or anything that's about it for the changes.
