To celebrate Midnight Form Lycanroc appearing for the first time in The Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG), Pokémon fans are invited to GAME stores across the UK from May 5 – or Micromania in France from May 13 – to receive Lycanroc (Midnight Form) for their Nintendo 3DS system.
Owners of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems can head into their local GAME store from 5 May and receive a Midnight Form Lycanroc, a Rock-type Pokémon from the Alola region that is ready for battle, for free.
Lycanroc evolves from Rockruff from Lv. 25 in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, but its form is decided depending on the time of day and which game it is evolved in. This special Lycanroc is battle-ready with its No Guard Ability, which makes sure hard-hitting moves such as Stone Edge and Fire Fang never miss.
Midnight Form Lycanroc are known for provoking their opponents and inviting their attacks. When opponents fall for this tactic, Lycanroc counter with their forte: a single devastating blow that finishes them off. The stronger its opponents, the more excited for battle Lycanroc become. They don’t mind getting hurt if it means victory in battle.
This Lycanroc is distributed with the following attributes:
- LEVEL: 50
- TYPE: Rock
- ABILITY: No Guard
- MOVES: Stone Edge, Fire Fang, Sucker Punch and Swords Dance
- HELD ITEM: Life Orb
To receive Lycanroc, fans must own a system in the Nintendo 3DS family and Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon. Please ask staff in a GAME store for instructions on how to receive a Lycanroc code.*
The upcoming Pokémon TCG Sun & Moon – Guardians Rising, which features Midnight Form Lycanroc, launches in the UK on 5 May.
