It's small, but Dusk Lycanroc briefly returned in the new ending credits for the anime.

View attachment 268427

I believe it's a hint toward the Pokemon in the egg. SarunoRI - RIoLU - LUgarugan

It's nothing big, but I thought it was something people might be interested in.
Here’s hoping Lycanroc can have some upcoming presence this generation, it’d be kind of a shame to leave it in Gen 7 and not come back to it like some other popular Pokémon.

It may be a bit of an obvious question, but have most people who have supported Lycanroc moved on to supporting Zacian and Zamazenta? Seeing the similarities between the three (five? with the different forms).

I seem to be the sole outlier.

Oof, getting dusty in here. Hasn't been much to talk about. But a recent potential leak related to the upcoming Isle of Armor expansion could prove interesting for the Lycanrocs' viability.


It seems some dataminers dug through the files in Pokémon Home recently and found names and placeholder data for what seem to be a handful of new moves:

  • Expanding Force
  • Steel Roller
  • Scale Shot
  • Meteor Beam
  • Shell Side Arm
  • Misty Explosion
  • Grassy Glide
  • Rising Voltage
  • Terrain Pulse
  • Skitter Smack
  • Burning Jealousy
  • Lash Out
  • Poltergeist
  • Corrosive Gas
  • Coaching
  • Flip Turn
  • Triple Axel
  • Dual Wingbeat
  • Scorching Sands
  • Jungle Healing
  • Wicked Blow
  • Surging Strikes
While we don't yet know which will be tutorable and which are signature moves locked to a single line (we know Jungle Healing is the latter for Zarude, for one), this presents some opportunities for more offensive coverage or even utility. For one, if Flip Turn ends up being a U-Turn/Volt Switch clone and the Lycanrocs get access to it, the ability to just bail out of bad matchups would raise their viability even more than the old moves we already know they're getting will. Could even open up some alternate scout builds using it with Stealth Rock!

I don't know why this hasn't been brought up, but will Midday & Midnight forms be version exclusives again?

Anyways, with the Isle of Armor out right now, has anyone been able to catch any Lycanrocs? And any thoughts on their changes?

Lycanroc’s aren’t versión exclusive, and only evolve based on the time of day. I think Dusk Lycanroc is available in raids, and Rockruffs with Own Tempo are the ones that can evolve into Dusk.

Here is hoping Ash gets his Lycanroc back!

This might be random to post, but I had free time, wanted to make one of these and this was the result:

1 Do It For Him.png



May or may not be my favorite pokemon owned by Ash btw, as I now realize.
Also, Ash's Alola team will return in an episode on the 13th.

Whew, getting dusty in here. Guess we all kind of moved on to other things.

Still, we have an Alola reunion coming up in the anime tomorrow, the first time this generation that Ash is meeting up with his old team members.

Also, apparently some time has passed, because...


We'll have to keep an eye on how things play out with this episode. Would be interesting if Ash's Lycanroc started a trend of mons from previous generations rejoining his team for the world cup, unlikely as it may be.

I think knowing who else would be in the masters class would greatly help to know if Ash could bring back older pokemon. Like if Alain is part of the master's 8, then Greninja is basically a shoe-in and so forth. Though I don't know if I see Gladion being there, as he's still busy searching for his dad with Lillie

So, turns out the Alola episode didn't spend much time on the reunion. The focus was on Goh proving himself to Kiawe. Bit unsatifying, that, though it does open up the possibility for the Alola crew to show up again.

Meanwhile...


One year to the day that a curse was finally put to rest. Particularly meaningful for us, it was. Now why can't I find a GIF of the finishing blow?

There's also something going on competitively, if you're into that:


From bumming around in RU to potentially being too strong for UU. Turns out the new coverage moves were a very significant buff.

I honestly thought the Goh vs Kiawe stuff was shorter than the reunion (around 3-4 minutes i think). And there wasn't much I think they could've done than what ended up happening in the episode (aside from the lack of Ash's alolan pokemon interacting with his current pokemon other than eating). We can definitely expect more later on.

To have had a meatier reunion it should've been a 1-hour special type of deal.
