Pokédex entries

Midday Form

Sun Its quick movements confuse its enemies. Well equipped with claws and fangs, it also uses the sharp rocks in its mane as weapons.
Moon When properly raised from a young age, it will become a trustworthy partner that will absolutely never betray its Trainer.
Ultra Sun The sharp rocks in its mane can cut like knives. Lycanroc wears its prey down by degrees before finishing them off.
Ultra Moon The rocks in its mane are sharper than a knife. Fragments that break off are treasured as good luck charms.

Midday Form

Sword This Lycanroc is calm and cautious. The rocks jutting from its mane are razor sharp.
Shield With swift movements, this Pokémon gradually backs its prey into a corner. Lycanroc’s fangs are always aimed toward opponents’ weak spots.

Midnight Form

Sun The more intimidating the opponent it faces, the more this Pokémon’s blood boils. It will attack with no regard for its own safety.
Moon It goads its enemies into attacking, withstands the hits, and in return, delivers a headbutt, crushing their bones with its rocky mane.
Ultra Sun It has no problem ignoring orders it doesn’t like. It doesn’t seem to mind getting hurt at all—as long as it can finish off its opponent.
Ultra Moon They live alone without forming packs. They will only listen to orders from Trainers who can draw out their true power.

Midnight Form

Sword This form of Lycanroc is reckless. It charges headlong at its opponents, attacking without any care about what injuries it might receive.
Shield It’s invigorated by powerful opponents—the stronger the better. A full-force headbutt from one of these Lycanroc can shatter giant boulders.

Dusk Form

Ultra Sun Bathed in the setting sun of evening, Lycanroc has undergone a special kind of evolution. An intense fighting spirit underlies its calmness.
Ultra Moon This strange form is the result of its evolving at dusk. It’s very rare in Alola.

Dusk Form

Sword This form of Lycanroc is normally calm and quiet. Once a battle begins, however, this Pokémon displays a ferocious fighting spirit.
Shield These Pokémon have both calm and ferocious qualities. Their temperamental nature makes them a difficult species to raise.
