The Lycanroc you get depends on the time you evolve your Rockruff

Rockruff, the cute puppy Pokémon from Alola, has been added to Pokémon Go and it has slightly specific evolution requirements. Our Pokémon Go Rockruff evolution guide details how to evolve Rockruff into both its Midday and Midnight forms.


How to get Lycanroc Midday or Midnight forms

To get the brown quadruped Midday Lycanroc, you need to use 50 Rockruff Candy on your Rockruff during the daytime.

To get the red two-footed Midnight Lycanroc, you need to use 50 Rockruff Candy on your Rockruff during the nighttime.

Before you tap the evolution button, make sure the silhouette of the Pokémon matches the silhouette of the form you want, because you cannot swap between the forms once you evolve your Rockruff.

Where’s Lycanroc’s Dusk Form in Pokémon Go?

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon added a new form of Lycanroc: Dusk Form. This orange version of Lycanroc has yet to be added to Pokémon Go, but it may make an appearance in the future.
