And it's a literal recolor of midday Lycanroc..it's orange with midnight's fur on its back....and that was all ohmori showed...wellp... disappointment corner it is
why are we surprised? the only reason it was revealed at all is because it was coming up in the anime, hence why it wasn't a YouTube dump.

Lmao, Troll Freak are taking it to the next level here. I think this answers why we are getting so little info. They really have run out of ideas. Anyone want to bet there is a Dawn form which is Midnight Lycanroc with Midday's colouration?

If you listen closely enough you can actually hear them scraping the barrel. Any more and they might go through it.

I like it somewhat. No surprise, since I already loved midnight lycanroc. I guess its stats will be 80/115/70/55/70/97?

I am more surprised the wolf is a literal recolor and nothing else, rather than surprised about the lack of info..We did get to hear a slightly revamped battle bgm though

what's bad about it? It's a pretty orange, just like a sunset.

Ya... sounds lazy to me.
At least they could've changed the design a tiny little bit.

Literally it looks like a shiny Pokemon from the old days where the colouration was just slightly different not even that noticeable.

I'm even willing to bet it;s Pure Rock type again.

I'll admit rocky horns would have been cool on this one, but oh well. I'm just glad it's still not at all lucario like.

I just really hope it's better than the other 2. But I doubt it. Probably pure Rock type and a meh moveset. But I can hope. It looks nice and since I never used Lycanroc before, I'd love to put it on my team.

Well, for the actual info side. It apparently does not evolve by normal means like other evolutions. It's different. This information is on the official website by the way.

I'm split on the design. On one hand I think it looks pretty cool. but they could have done a little bit more to make it not just a slightly edited version of Midday form :/
Atleast it's something,and i don't get why people must whine about something that is not story related-

Anyway,im the only one that think that he looks way more amazing in the anime?

I really like the new Lycanroc. :X I can understand disappointment from it being similar to pre-existing Lycanroc, though. Doesn't hurt that it's my favorite color, but at the very least I think it's a fun way to make Rockruff's arc in the anime feel more unique than if we were to get regular Midday as it's evolution, since we've seen both prior forms get focus.

Nope you are not the only one. I also like the touch in which its eye turns red in battle animations in the gameplay. Though the most interesting thing about that video (for me) was the new Pokemon encounter theme. It sounds much more intense.

meh, people are just whining again. It's a really nice color scheme, really, and it's notably less boring than midday lycanroc. I wish they had done a little more, yeah, but it's okay. Be thankful they didn't pull another kyurem black...

I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out rock/fire, rock/psychic, or rock/dark, with midnight being pure rock to put further emphasis on this strange hybrid.

It's been exactly 2 months (down to the day) since USUM were announced.
In that time the only thing they've revealed is a different colouration of a Pokemon we already know and has already had a lot of exposure.

Can't wait for October. Maybe Cap Pikachu, will gain access to an 8th hat, (one of Lillie's perhaps?)

I mean, the design is starting to grow on me, I don't want to sound like i'm complaining ;-; I am just interested in exactly how Rockruff involves into it. What if it is just a dusk stone lmao? But I do agree that it looks 100% cooler in the anime.

Perhaps you'll need both Midday and Midnight Lycanroc in your party to make it evolve into Dusk. Or an item that is imbued with both the power of the sun and the power of the moon.
