Badass Fox Thingie Dusk Form Lycanroc is Coming to Pokémon Ultra Sun And Ultra Moon For a Limited Time

Confession time: I've not touched a game involving Nintendo's pocket monsters since Pokémon Snap. Having been out of the Squirtle-enslaving trade for some 18 years I'll gladly admit the cartoon beasties look waaaay more badass now than they did in the late '90s. The kickass fox thingie above would beat Pikachu's electrified ass any damn day of the week, and it's coming to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon later this year.

This new flavour of Lycanroc (known as Dusk Form Lycanroc), looks substantially cooler than the existing 'midnight or 'midday' forms of the critter. Just look...

You'll be able to download the new Dusk Form fox from the Nintendo Network on November 17th (when the new Pokémon titles launch) until January 10th, 2018. Providing you check in with either game before that closing date, you'll get this limited time badass Lycanroc for free, but after Jan 10, the critter will be gone.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon hit 3DS on November 17th.
