Yeah, they wanted to give Ash midday but couldn't because it wouldn't be special then, and so carrotwolf exists. Screw thisWell, given the confirmation that Dusk-roc is event exclusive, I'd have to say my thoughts are that maybe Gamefreak didn't really want to create it in the first place, but the anime wanted another special snowflake like Ash-Greninja so they pulled a lazy design out and went "Here you go." because they had more important things to do than make more absurdly special pokemon for perpetual child trainer Ash Ketchum.
It kinda explains why the model is so barely altered from Midday-roc.
An interview confirmed gamefreak created it because the anime people wanted them to give it a mega so Ash can have a mega, but they refused, so Ash-frog was born insteadHonestly, you might be right... The anime creators created Ash Greninja on their own, if I remember correctly. They could've done the same for Dusk Lycanroc, which would explain a lot. God dammit.
It's as easy as altering the code on that one special rockruff I think ?Crap. Why do we need another Ash-Greninja situation? More importantly, how the heck can they limit an evolution to one Pokémon? It sounds very hard to program something like that.
After we confirmed the carrotwolf is an event distribution exclusive evo, it's safe to say nope, no dawn, because Ash doesn't need a dawn version to exist..I really need to know will their be dawn evolution form for ultra moon version to be two legged
Dusk is more for the ultra sun version for four legged
Yeah don't ask me, looks like they're not even giving us "new forms". Even this carrotwolf doesn't really mean anything for there being actual new forms or alolan variants cause it's just Ash-wolf without the Ash in itThis being an event exclusive pokemon just makes USUM all the more... lamer? This pokemon is supposed to be an incentive to buy USUM...?
This will hurt forever, won't it?
Gotta have something to distribute on release day. Just like Victini, Torchic, Beldum and Munchlax. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯Wow, they really overestimated Dusk's appeal if they think that it's worthy of being an event. But it's Ash's anime dog, so I can see kids being hyped for it.
Simple. They code a Rockruff that can evolve into Dusk as another form with no visual differences. They've already done this with Greninja with Battle Bond. They've also coded Zygarde with Power Construct as a different Pokemon than the ones with Aura Break.Crap. Why do we need another Ash-Greninja situation? More importantly, how the heck can they limit an evolution to one Pokémon? It sounds very hard to program something like that.
Where did you get that idea? Ever since Gen 4, the events that are relevant to said Gen have been made easily accessible worldwide. The fact that this is like Torchic/Beldum/Munchlax means everyone will be able to get it easily.I definitely agree that they could have been a lot more realistic with the design. And if it's an event-exclusive Pokémon, it probably won't be distributed to everyone.
Rockruff never belonged to Kukui in the anime. It was just a wild Rockruff that stayed around.Hang on. something just occurred to me. We know that in the anime, Ash got Kukui's Rockruff which then became Dusk Lycanroc. What if this isn't just some Ash-exclusive gimmick? I think there's a chance that in-universe, Duskroc is going to be Kukui-exclusive instead. It's kind of like how Eternal Flower Floette is AZ-exclusive.
Oops. Well, it still lived with Kukui at least, right? It still seems to be the equivalent of Kukui's Rockruff in the games as far as I can tell. Still, what about the other points I made? It fits pretty well with the information we have so far, so at the very least I can see Duskroc be a character-exclusive 'mon regarding existing or new characters within USUM. All I really want is to encourage discussion beyond complaining that USUM might not be worth it.Rockruff never belonged to Kukui in the anime. It was just a wild Rockruff that stayed around.
If Duskroc was more akin to Mega Blaziken than Ash Greninja then I think the best hope for it would maybe... maybe be if Duskroc became a regional variant for something like the Sinnoh remakes.Game Freak at it again. They've done this nonsense before. You could only get Mega Blaziken in X/Y with the event but it was available in game in OR/AS. Generally these things are available in the next game but then again Deerling and Sawsbuck's forms are unobtainable in Gen VI and Gen VII (so far). Game Freak has had every opportunity to make those forms available again and have outright refused. We don't know whether Ash-Greninja will be obtainable by any other means. Game Freak needs to stop doing this. It's just stupid.
