Wait, a new form of Lycanroc is coming to Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon? How can we get this one?
Details have been scarce on Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon since just before E3 2017. Despite the game coming out in November, Nintendo seems very tight-lipped about sharing new information. But now, thanks to a post on the official Pokemon website, we now know that Lycanroc will have a new evolution in the pair of games.
Why is this significant? Well, Lycanroc is the evolved form of Rockruff, who evolves based on the time of day you level him up in. He has a Noon form, and a midnight form. But now, we’re getting a Dusk Form:
“It’s been confirmed that a new form of Lycanroc appears in the world of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon—Dusk Form. The colors of Dusk Form Lycanroc’s body and eyes differ from those of previously discovered Lycanroc, Midday Form and Midnight Form.
You can’t get Dusk Form Lycanroc on your team by ordinary methods, such as discovering the mysterious Pokémon in the wild.
So check back soon for news on how you can get Dusk Form Lycanroc, along with more details on the upcoming Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon games.”
The obvious question here though is whether we’re get a “Dawn Form” of some kind. We’ll have to wait and find out.
