The Isle of Armor expansion is now out for Pokemon Sword and Shield and with it comes a new selection of Pokemon that were previously unobtainable in the Galar region. Rockruff and Lycanroc are just a few of those Pokemon and if you’re trying to figure out just how to evolve Rockruff into Dusk Form in Pokemon Sword & Shield, we’re here to help you out.
How to Evolve Rockruff Into Dusk Form in Pokemon Sword & Shield
Okay, so there are a couple of things that you need to know before you get yourself a Dusk Lycanroc. For starters, only a Rockruff with the hidden ability “Own Tempo” can turn into a Dusk Lycanroc and it needs to be trained during dusk, which seems to fall around 7-8 PM local time in-game. As long as your Rockruff is level 25 or higher, it’ll evolve into the Dusk Form Lycanroc but it’s trickier than it sounds.
You can find Rockruff in the Fields of Honor area right outside the train station at the Isle of Armor and while it is fairly easy to capture one, it will not have that special Own Tempo ability.
You see, there was a Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon event back in the day that gave players these special Rockruff’s but now that the event is long gone, you can only get it through breeding or trading.
One other way to get your hands on a Dusk Form Lycanroc is by trying to defeat it in a Max Raid Battle but it is a rare, five-star Pokemon, so it may be hard to take it down.
Hopefully that answers your question on how to evolve Rockruff into Dusk Form in Pokemon Sword & Shield. For more tips and tricks related to the new Isle of Armor expansion, just search Twinfinite. We also have some other guides up like how to evolve Lickitung and how to get Sniper Sobble.
