And welcome to the 122nd issue of Pokemon News. We’ve got stuff to talk about, and some of it is USUM related. So let’s get into it.
First up, we have a new Mega Stone Distribution code for Sun and Moon! The code itself is “POYONG” and will net you Galladite, Gardevoirite, Lopunnite, and Diancite. No end date has been posted, so get these stones before they are gone.
And now onto the big news of the week. As teased in both the anime and CoroCoro, Rockruff will have a new evolution form in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. This is the bridge between Lycanroc Midday and Lycanroc Midnight. This is Lycanroc Dusk Forme.
We actually know a little bit about Lycanroc Dusk with it being so early in its release. We know that the Dusk Form has the ability Tough Claws and has access to both Accelrock and Counter, the staple moves of the Midday and Midnight Forms. The anime episode that was released during the writing of the issue also confirms that Ash’s Rockruff has evolved into the Dusk Form Lycanroc. Will be get a Dawn Form of Lycanroc later on? The Blackthorn Council and Viridian Guild both think no, but I’m holding out hope.
A special Rockruff capable of evolving into Lycanroc Dusk Form will be distributed during the launch of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon from November 17, 2017 to January 10, 2018. So this will be your chance to get the Dusk Form.
And that’s it for Pokemon News. What do you think of Lycanroc’s Dusk Form? Do you think there will/should be a Dawn Form? Let me know in the comments below. And with that, I’ll see you guys in the next issue!
