How do you get festival coins in level 0?

Is there a place to buy the Apricorn Pokeballs?

How does the Dusk Ball work in Moon Version? Does it have a higher catch rate when it is night in the game? Or does it have a higher catch rate when it's night in real life?

While I can't confirm 100% I see no reason why I wouldn't work off of ingame time.

in-game time. Moon literally is twelve hours later, not a mysterious world where it is night in the AM and light in the PM.

in game time, so if its night time in the game then the dusk ball is a go.

So anyone knows what's UB-01's name? Like Beaty or Absorption in UB-02, or Ligting in UB-03, because I don't remember it being said in the game.

It's "Symbiont." We only learn that in the post-game.

Is there any way to see your own stats in the Festival Plaza? Or can you only see it for your guests? Can't seem to find any way to see my own~

The highest level you'll see in your initial Pokemon League run is 58

Does Cubone really require level 28 at night to evolve into Alolan Marowak? Because mine just hit level 28, and it's after six in Pokémon Sun, and no such evolution

Any word on whether the rare Pokemon from Island Scan can have their Hidden Ability? I don't expect it, but neither do I have a means to determine a wild Pokemon's ability yet....

Hm most sources say it simply evolves at lvl28 at night, but I've also read somewhere that it's Happiness/Friendship needs to be maxed? So that could be it.

They can't.

As it turns out, Sun is just as picky as X was over what counts as "night". I went back at eight o'clock and evolved through a straight level-up to 29.

Honestly, if being dark isn't enough to make it night, the game might have the decency to outright tell you when it's night and when it isn't

I figured that seeing one in a Totem/Kahuna battle is a good implication of what level they evolve around -- mine are both Lv.27 . I doubt friendship is necessarily an aspect since I now have a Lv.28 midday Lycanroc and she hasn't been on my active team that long.

In the meantime, I'm going to wait until evening for her brother.

I do not really understand how I get Cosmog? Am I misunderstanding something - It says I have to go through the worm whole to get it, but is this only possible if you "killed" Solgaleo / Lunala

You may enter through the portal in Pokémon Sun during the night while Solgaleo is in your party, and in Pokémon Moon during the day while Lunara is in your party.

Maybe I have not understood this correctly, but in order for this to work does it mean that I did not catch Solgaleo in the first place or are there two Cosmogs in the game?
