It’s been confirmed that a new form of Lycanroc appears in the world of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon known as Dusk Form Lycanroc. The colors of Dusk Form Lycanroc’s body and eyes differ from those of previously discovered Lycanroc, known as Midday Form and Midnight Form.

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.

Lycanroc's Exclusive Z-Move!

Introducing a Z-Move unique to Lycanroc: Splintered Stormshards. It will make Dusk Form Lycanroc even more powerful! Remember that Dusk Form Lycanroc can be obtained by evolving the special Rockruff made available as an early purchase gift.

Splintered Stormshards is a new Rock-type Z-Move that can be used by having a Lycanroc learn the move Stone Edge and then having it hold the special Z-Crystal Lycanium Z. In addition to causing damage, it can also remove the various effects of terrains. This powerful Z-Move is effective against the guardian deity Tapu Koko and the other tapu, which make use of various terrains.

Lycanium Z's shape is different from that of regular Z-Crystals.

To use the move, have Lycanroc hold Lycanium Z, one of the Z-Crystals introduced in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon.

Midday Form and Midnight Form Lycanroc can also use the Z-Move Splintered Stormshards if they are holding Lycanium Z.
