Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon – special Lycanroc Z-Move, Dusk Form evolution timing

Posted on September 13, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News

More Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon news has started to leak from CoroCoro. We now know that the Lycanroc will have a new Z-Move in the two games known as “Radial Edge Storm” which requires the Pokemon to know the move Stone Edge. Also, it has a secondary effect that eliminates field effects such as Terrain.

Additionally, it’s confirmed that Rockruff can only evolve into Dusk Form between 5 PM and 5:59 PM after level 25. The pre-evolution special Rockruff also has the ability Own Tempo.

    Not only you need a specific Rockruff but it also has time limitations, Pokemon is great designing tedious stuff.

      They’ve been doing this for a while now. Gen 3 you could only find Feebas in 6 water tiles out of over 100.

      • oh man shudders. I still remember that. I haven’t been that deep in the 3DS remakes but I take it that’s still the case?

        • Devlind

          I don’t remember it exactly, but I think they changed it in ORAS.

        • Carlos

          Nope it’s much easier to get in the remakes.

          If you fish in that route it has a 5% chance, but there’s certain areas that have 100% chance depending on the time of day.

        I know, and evolving it isn’t very straightforward either. It’s just that this is a free pokemon that are giving to everyone, including casual players that will want to evolve it. It should be more simple.

      “Pokemon is great designing tedious stuff.”

      Dude, if you have any idea how tedious it is to make a competitive team, you’d know that this is nothing.

      • Devlind

        A legal competitive team*

        Most competitive players (even the ones that participate in VGC) hack their teams. It is only tedious if you want to make everything legal.

        • NinetalesCommander

          Of course I meant a legal team, was that really needed to be pointed out?

          • Devlind

            Yes.

          • NinetalesCommander

            I don’t see how, hacking a team is not tedious, it can be done in less than 10 minutes. Anyone with common sense that knows what “tedious” means will easily know what I meant.

          • Devlind

            No.

          • NinetalesCommander

            Brilliant argument! That renders all I said useless! My eyes have truly been opened!

          • Devlind

            Good.

      • Jag Gentlemann

        I know how it is, that’s why I don’t care much about hacked pokemon, it’s just a shortcut. But this feels more dumb to me, it’s just an evolution, something that even casual players will want to do.

    • Devlind

      Well, my theory is that this form was going to be available for every Rockruff (and that’s why this time limitation exists), but to secure some early sales for fans that want every Pokémon and items, they decided to make it exclusive to only one for a short period of time.

      I believe that it’s far easier adding that restriction than changing the evolution code completely.

  • Devlind

    It’s a shame that GameFreak keeps this trend of having a special Pokémon/item available for a limited time after release to sell more copies (like if they even need it). At least make it available in game after completing a difficult task, like having a 100 win-streak at the battle tree or defeating the Elite Four 945 times and then moving a truck with Strength near a harbor.

    Huh… Interesting.
