After rumors about a new form for Lycanroc in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon , the Japanese television show Pokénchi revealed a third form for the Rock-type Pokémon .

Pokénchi had Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon director, Shigeru Ohmori on to talk about the upcoming new Pokémon games when Ohmori revealed the third Lycanroc form to be its Dusk Form.

Not much else was revealed about Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon or the new Lycanroc Dusk Form but the official Pokémon website states: “ The colors of Dusk Form Lycanroc's body and eyes differ from those of previously discovered Lycanroc, Midday Form and Midnight Form.”

It’s clear that Dusk Form Lycanroc is a combination of Midday and Midnight having many of the body similarities as Midday while keeping Midnight’s spiky hair.

The site also goes on to say that Lycanroc Dusk Form can’t be obtained by normal methods. “You can't get Dusk Form Lycanroc on your team by ordinary methods, such as discovering the mysterious Pokémon in the wild.”

Of course, this probably means trainers will have to be sure to evolve Rockruff at Level 20 during a certain time in a similar fashion to Lycanroc Midday and Midnight. However, Lycanroc Midday and Midnight could only be evolved based on the version it was in, so it’s unclear if Lycanroc Dusk Form will require a particular version to obtain.

Here's how Lycanroc Dusk Form looks in the new Pokemon games.

Pokénchi did show off Rockruff evolving into Lycanroc Dusk Form in-game and then going into battle. The show also revealed Ash’s Rockruff evolving into its Dusk Form in the anime.

Now that Lycanroc Dusk Form has been revealed, many Pokémon fans are hoping a fourth form will be revealed soon to make Dusk Form and a possible fourth form version exclusives in the same way Midday and Midnight Lycanroc were in Sun and Moon .

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will release for Nintendo 3DS on Nov. 17.

So what do you think of Lycanroc Dusk Form? Do you hope for a fourth form? Let us know in the comments section below.
