Zoroark any good?

I just got this from a wondertrade and it seems like it might be the first good trade i've gotten out of this...

If you like messing with your opponents head it is I guess.

I used one on my random wifi team last gen. It's good to make him imitate a psychic type IMO.

Awesome ability as well as some higher end spec sweeper potential, I'd say he's great.

Zoroark's always been a sort of gamble.

I used one a lot in Black and would make it disguise as a Ghost type, that way it discouraged Fighting attacks (and typically made them use a Dark move), which would buy a turn for a Nasty Plot, after which he's a decent sweeper, but far from the best.

That trick only really works properly once. After the first fight, all my friends would expect that the Mismagius I sent out might not actually BE one, and it turned into a 50/50 game of chance of them guessing if it was Zoroark or not.

I always had fun using him online. I can just imagine the look on my opponents face as they're flabergastered why their Psychic didn't affect my Gengar.

In-game AI doesn't understand Zoroark's ability. If the opponent thinks Psychic is the best move on whatever Zoroark is disguised as, it will spam Psychic even though it's not doing anything. It was pretty easy to abuse on stuff like the battle subway.

If you can solo ingame with Caterpie and Magikarp, Zoroark is going to work...

It can be for mind games.

I once used one to imitate Whimsicott. You wouldn't believe how many people would switch out only to find out they'd been had.

edit: Yeah, ingame anything will work.
