This page details how to get the new form of Lycanroc, Dusk Form Lycanroc, in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. The only way to get the special rockruff at the moment is to trade for it, as the event has expired.
In Pokemon Ultra Sun, Rockruff will have Fire Fang, but in Pokemon Ultra Moon, Rockruff will have Thunder Fang. Rockruff will always have the special move Happy Hour. Rockruff will also have a item.
There are two simple steps to get Rockruff to evolve into Dusk Lycanroc.
- Increase Rockruff's level to 25, or beyond.
- Ensure it levels up between 5 PM and 5:59 PM.
Because Pokemon Ultra Moon runs 12 hours ahead of real time, this means you must evolve your Rockruff between 5 AM and 5:59 AM in real time in order for it to be between 5 PM and 5:59 PM in game! Sorry Ultra Moon players, better set that alarm.
That's it! Rockruff will then evolve into Dusk Lycanroc.
Dusk Lycanroc's stats mostly resemble Midday Lycanroc's, except it has 2 additional points in Attack, and 2 less points in speed.
This Lycanroc reflects features from both Lycanroc (Midday Form) and Lycanroc (Midnight Form). It learns both form's signature moves, and its eyes glow red like the Midnight Form's when it attacks.
Additionally, Dusk Form Lycanroc has a different ability from its counterparts, Tough Claws, which makes attacks that connect deal more damage - for example, attacks like Thunder Fang and Fire Fang.
