- The Pokemon GO event, Lustrous Odyssey, will introduce Dusk Form Lycanroc.
- Dusk Form Lycanroc is the rarest Rockruff evolution and can only be evolved during the Lustrous Odyssey event by obtaining a Rockruff during that time.
- The event also brings various bonuses and features, including increased appearances of certain Pokemon in the wild and raids, as well as special research tasks and encounters.
The upcoming Pokemon GO event, Lustrous Odyssey, will mark the debut of Dusk Form Lycanroc in Niantic’s popular mobile game. This additional Lycanroc version joins the already available Midday and Midnight Form Lycanroc and adds one more creature for Pokemon GO trainers to collect.
Dusk Form Lycanroc was first introduced with the release of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in 2017. Dusk Form Lycanroc is the evolution of Rockruff when it levels up during the evening. Its appearance is a combination of Lycanroc’s Midday and Midnight Forms with orange-gold fur, a unique color pattern compared to its other forms. Dusk Form Lycanroc is considered the rarest Rockruff evolution and is therefore sought after by trainers who want to complete their Pokemon collection.
Pokemon GO Reveals January 2024 Community Day Classic Pokemon
Pokemon GO developer Niantic reveals the featured Pokemon and bonuses for the limited-time January 2024 Community Day Classic event.
Dusk Form Lycanroc will make its debut with the launch of the Lustrous Odyssey event in Pokemon GO on January 6 at 10am local time. Trainers will have a chance to get a Dusk Form Lycanroc when they evolve their Rockruff, and they can even get a Shiny Dusk Form Lycanroc if they evolve a Shiny Rockruff. To increase their chances of getting a Dusk Form Lycanroc, players can complete Field Research tasks to encounter a Rockruff or evolve their Rockruff hatched from Eggs received as Adventure Sync rewards from Pokemon GO Timeless Travels special research tasks.
How to Evolve Rockruff to Dusk Form Lycanroc in Pokemon GO
Unlike the Midnight and Midday Form Lycanroc, Dusk Form Lycanroc can only be evolved from a Rockruff obtained during the Lustrous Odyssey event.
To evolve Rockruff to Dusk Form Lycanroc:
- Get a Rockruff during the Lustrous Odyssey event, either from an egg, in the wild, or by completing Field Research tasks
- Wait until the evening so you don’t get a Midday or Midnight Form Lycanroc
- Spend 50 Candy
Besides the addition of Dusk Form Lycanroc, the Lustrous Odyssey event brings a variety of content to Pokemon GO. Completing Field Research tasks grants a chance to encounter Hisuian Growlithe, Hisuian Sneasel, and Rockruff. These Pokemon, as well as Rhyhorn, will be appearing in one-star raids, while three-star raids will feature Lapras, Aerodactyl, Hisuian Braviary, and Wyrdeer. Gastly, Eevee, Spinarak, Sunkern, Teddiursa, Lunatone, Solrock, Yungoos, Fomantis, and Morelull will appear more frequently in the wild, and some trainers might get a chance to encounter two Eeveelutions: Espeon and Umbreon. The Pokemon GO Lustrous Odyssey event will end on January 10 at 8pm local time.
