Rockruff Distribution for Pokémon Ultra Sun or Ultra Moon

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo have announced a brand-new form of the Pokémon Lycanroc, along with information on how to obtain it in the upcoming Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon video games.

In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, the Pokémon Rockruff could evolve into either Midday Form Lycanroc or Midnight Form Lycanroc. In the upcoming video games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, however, a new version of Lycanroc will be available: Dusk Form Lycanroc.

Image

Dusk Form Lycanroc
Type: Rock
Ability: Tough Claws

Dusk Form Lycanroc features characteristics of both Lycanroc Midday Form and Lycanroc Midnight Form. It stands on all fours and has behavioral traits similar to Midday Form, but when it attacks, its eyes glow red, much like Midnight Form. Dusk Form Lycanroc has a tranquil demeanor and always remains calm. This Pokémon is obedient towards a Trainer that it trusts. It has an intense fighting spirit, and as a result, prefers to do combat at close quarters.

Rockruff caught through normal gameplay cannot evolve into Dusk Form Lycanroc. A unique Rockruff that can evolve into Dusk Form Lycanroc will be wirelessly distributed via Nintendo Network as a special early purchase bonus for owners of Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon. Players will be able to receive their Rockruff from the games’ launch on 17 November until 10 January 2018. More details are planned to be announced later this year.

September 2017 Corocoro

corocoro

Scans of the September 2017 issue of Corocoro which were leaked earlier this week revealed that the Rockruff Distribution will run from November 17th, 2017 through to January 10th, 2018 in Japan, the same days as in North America.

Secrets of Lycanroc Dusk Form Revealed

Find out how to get a special Rockruff that will evolve into this incredible Pokémon.

Image

We recently got our first look at the newly discovered Dusk Form Lycanroc. Now more details have been revealed, including how you can add this cool Pokémon to your Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon game.

A Unique Look and Attitude

Dusk Form Lycanroc shares some of the aspects of Midday Form, such as a four-legged stance and obedience toward its trusted Trainer. But it's also like Midnight Form—at the moment it attacks, its eyes turn red! Around its neck are four rocks like those of Midday Form, while the mane on its head matches that of Midnight Form.

Little things don't shake the tranquil demeanor of Dusk Form Lycanroc, but it has a well of intense fighting spirit hidden within, and as a result, it relishes combat at close quarters. It also tries to use Counter when battles get intense.

A New Battle Formation

The moves that Dusk Form Lycanroc can learn also seem to reflect the characteristics of both Midday and Midnight Forms. Dusk Form Lycanroc learns both Accelerock and Counter—moves favored by Midday Form and Midnight Form Lycanroc, respectively.

Accelerock is a Rock-type physical move that always goes first. In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, only Midday Form Lycanroc could learn this move. Midday Form could learn this move when it evolved from Rockruff. Counter is a Fighting-type move that inflicts double the damage received by an opponent's physical attack. In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, Midnight Form Lycanroc learned this move when it evolved from Rockruff.

Dusk Form Lycanroc has the Ability Tough Claws, a different Ability than either Midday Form or Midnight Form. Tough Claws greatly increases the power of moves that make direct contact. A Dusk Form Lycanroc with this Ability would likely favor a different style of battle than Midday Form or Midnight Form.

Get Dusk Form Lycanroc!

Only special Rockruff can evolve into a Dusk Form Lycanroc, and neither this Rockruff nor Dusk Form Lycanroc can be caught in normal gameplay. But you can get a special gift of this Rockruff as an early purchase bonus with Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. Players will be able to receive a special Rockruff that can evolve into Dusk Form Lycanroc via Nintendo Network from Friday, November 17, 2017, until Wednesday, January 10, 2018. Evolve this special Rockruff and have an adventure in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon together with your Dusk Form Lycanroc!

You'll be able to get this Rockruff only for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. Details on the ways to get this special Rockruff will be announced soon, so keep checking back for more information on it and on the upcoming Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon games, launching November 17 for systems in the Nintendo 3DS family.

The official Pokémon website has announced that visitors to the 2017 Pokémon World Championships at the Anaheim Convention Center will be able to get an Alolan Exeggutor from August 18th, 2017 until August 20th, 2017.

Get an Alolan Exeggutor!

Anaheim, California is covered with palm trees, but there is one Pokémon that rises above them all—Alolan Exeggutor! You can get an Alolan Exeggutor for your copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon by stopping by the Anaheim Convention Center during the 2017 Pokémon World Championships. This Alolan Exeggutor may not be the fiercest Pokémon on your team if you're playing competitively, but its Harvest Ability will prove extremely valuable, and it arrives knowing the unique move Celebrate, which it can only learn through this distribution.

Look for signs at the Pokémon World Championships with directions on how to get Alolan Exeggutor via local wireless. You'll need your own system in the Nintendo 3DS family and a copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon to get the Alolan Exeggutor.
