As some fans may already know, the upcoming Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will introduce new Pokemon and different variations for already existing Pokemon. One particular Pokemon who has been teased for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon is Lycanroc. As previous reports reveal, Lycanroc will have a Dusk Form in the upcoming titles. However, as it turns out, the availability of its Dusk Form will actually be temporary.
Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon: How to Acquire Dusk Lycanroc
It’s worth noting that Dusk Lycanroc will not be available for the entirety of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Additionally, obtaining said Pokemon would not follow the typical approach of randomly encountering it in the wild. Instead, players will receive Rockruff, Lycanroc’s pre-evolved form, as a free gift.
Such an approach applies to fans who can get their hands on an early copy of either Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Reportedly, the special Rockruff will be available to download via the Nintendo network from November 17 to January 10, 2018. The Rockruff acquired during this time frame will later evolve into its eventual Dusk Form.
Free Pokemon in Pokemon Sun and Moon
Though Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon continues to make headlines, its predecessors — Sun and Moon — continue to live on. Most recently, the games made several Pokemon available for free. These include the likes of Gallade, Gardevoir, Lopunny, and the mythical Diancie. Notably, in terms of Sun and Moon, these Pokemon cannot be obtained in the wild. As such, it is recommended that players snag the aforementioned creatures for free while they still can.
To claim these Pokemon, players will need to obtain their Mega Stones via the Mystery Gift option from the title’s menu screen. After this, they must then choose to receive their gift “via code/password.” The code for this promotion is “POYONG.”
Afterward, players can then claim the Pokemon from the game’s deliveryman. This character can be found inside any of the in-game Pokemon Centers. Like most freebies of this nature, this promo is expected to be temporary yet again. However, as to how long it will run is still unknown.
Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon vs Pokemon Sun and Moon
What exactly is the difference between Sun and Moon and their Ultra counterparts? As mentioned, Ultra Sun and Moon will feature new variations of pre-existing Pokemon. The Dusk Form of Lycanroc is one such case. Furthermore, new Pokemon will also be introduced in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.
On top of these details, the upcoming titles will also provide supplementary story points not present in the original Sun and Moon. Like its predecessors, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will be available for the Nintendo 3DS. It is slated to see a release this November.
