Secrets of Lycanroc Dusk Form Revealed
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.
