CoroCoro leaks have revealed more info
about Dusk Form Lycanroc:
• It can learn both "Accelerock" and "Counter"
• Its Ability is Tough Claws (This and the above pretty much dash my hopes for it being more specially-oriented, to help differentiate it from the other forms)
• It's pure-Rock (More hopes dashed)
• It can NOT be obtained in-game, only through a special Rockruff distribution
I love Rockruff's line, but this form reveal was kind of a downer for being SO similar-looking to Midday. Both Midday and Midnight are really interesting and quite distinct - now there's this uninspired-looking third form muddling up the line a bit. The in-game model in particular just looks like a new shiny version of Midday. It didn't help that this (barely) new form was our first piece of USUM
news following a two-month-drought after the games' initial reveal.
In personal PoGo
news, I wound up getting really lucky with the birds: Moltres and Lugia only took one attempt, while Articuno and Zapdos took two each. I don't expect this luck to last, though, and I'll probably have to attempt each of the beasts at least five times...
