The most elusive Lycanroc of all might require you to hatch quite a few eggs. Here’s how to get Dusk Lycanroc in Pokemon GO.
How to Get Dusk Lycanroc in Pokemon GO
Rockruff might be one of the cutest hounds in Pokemon, with a whole set of temporal-based evolutions. Unfortunately, for the longest time, the golden middle child of those evolutions remained firmly out of reach.
But now, anyone can get a Dusk Lycanroc in Pokemon GO. Here’s how to do it.
When Rockruff first released on March 1, 2022, trainers were excited about the prospect of getting all three of Rockruff’s evolution. But Dusk Form Lycanroc is only available starting on January 6, 2024, at 10:00 AM. This is when the Lustrous Odyssey is kicking off, and Dusk Form Lycanroc will be making its grand debut.
After this moment, all Rockruff will have the potential to evolve into Dusk Form Lycanroc. The chance of a Rockruff evolving into a Dusk Form Lycanroc is random. But no matter what, you’ll need to have 50 Rockruff Candies on you.
And yes, Dusk Form Lycanroc can be Shiny in Pokemon GO!
How to Get Rockruff in Pokemon GO
During the Lustrous Odyssey Event, you’ll have no shortage of opportunities to grab your own Rockruff. This event will start on January 6, 2024, and end on January 10.
During that time, you’ll be able to encounter Rockruff in a variety of ways including:
- As a reward for completing Part 2 of the Timeless Travels Special Research quest.
- By hatching 2km and 7km Pokemon Eggs.
- By fighting and defeating Rockruffs in 1-Star Raids.
Once the event is over, you’ll still be able to encounter Rockruff as a Wild Spawn or by hatching eggs, but your odds are much lower.
If you want your Dusk Lycanroc to come out in a nice shade of navy blue, now is the perfect time to Shiny Hunt! But that golden shade might be better suited to it.
