Ash-Lycannroc. It's got weird red-and-black gunk on its head and is super weak to Pokemon that are dual Fire/Dragon-types.

If this new "twilight" evolution is any better than the others, and available, and attractive design-wise, then I'd welcome it.

Rockruff turns away from it's two evolutions in the trailer
it's becoming a new form
Also
this hints at a major USUM plot line it seems
On the official art with the games name, there's that same green aura flowing. My guess something like Z Energy and the time of day not being night or day will trigger rockruff to evolve
Could this be some new plot device to explain change to the region?

I'm also betting on a reveal next Tuesday.

Like I said on the episode discussion thread, it seems like rockruff "reacts" with the sunset in the preview. I believe this will be a third form!
As we know, Lycanroc's eyes are blue and red for Midday and Midnight form respectively. Rockruff's eyes were glowing green when it saw that sunset, so I can see where you're coming from.

That is true, I do also have several good explanations on why there can be a third Lycanroc form. The first bit of information is that when Rockruff evolves into Midday Lycanroc, Vital Spirit is replaced with Sand Rush while Midnight Lycanroc replaces Steadfast with No Guard. This hypothetical third Lycanroc would have to have Keen Eye replaced. Another reason that just caught my attention is that the placeholder is listed as Forme 4. For the Pokémon on the Global Link, 0 is the default number and I think that 0 is Midday Lycanroc, 1 is Midnight Lycanroc, 2 is Totem Midday Lycanroc, 3 is Totem Midnight Lycanroc and that 4 is our mystery Lycanroc. The reason I am thinking that is that when we saw Lycanroc jump in the trailer in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, it was day outside and the form was Midday. I think that Lycanroc might be a version exclusive Totem just like it is for Gumshoos and Alolan Raticate with there being a Totem Midday Lycanroc in Pokémon Ultra Sun and a Totem Midnight Lycanroc in Pokémon Ultra Moon. This is all I have to say on the subject.

Well guys, it looks like the new issue of CoroCoro has confirmed a new Lycanroc form.



Serebii took this picture which was on the cover of the September 2017 issue. It appears to have green eyes, and its body is a light red colour, likely to sit between the Midday Form's beige colour and Midnight Form's dark red.

Now i am starting to be convinced. I wanted more evidence in order to believe in an alternate lycanroc. Hope we get more info on it.
Considering the appearance of this Lycanroc form, I think it's likely there will be a news article on US/UM inside.

This is probably the 3rd form, yeah. However this is on the cover and since the photo is a little blurry I gyess it's still considered unconfirmed. However, looking at it, it seems like a mix of midnight and midday Lycanroc

I'd say take it with a grain of salt for now, but looking at the picture it does definitely look like a hybrid of the two. Hopefully more scans will show in the coming days.

I have a feeling we might get something else before Corocoro. Some merchandise sites have said some of the hidden things are supposed to be revealed on the 6th or 10th. May have been 10th and there is a rumor about a new trailer on the 6th according to a rumor.

Apparently, there was actually 2 place holder images for Lycanroc according to one news source, not just 1.

Looking at the pokemon on the cover, without zooming in too much, it looks like it may have green eyes like Rockruff had in the anime when they were glowing.

Technically, it's not confirmed to even be related to Pokémon, much less related to Rockruff's new evolution. According to Serebii in the same news:

In The Games Department

Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon - CoroCoro

The first images from CoroCoro has been released, showcasing the cover of the magazine. With this, hidden away in the cover is an image that looks very similar to Lycanroc, just with a different colour scheme and a few aesthetic changes. We're currently awaiting further images from the magazine to confirm what this means. Do note, this is not currently confirmed to be related to Pokémon We'll bring more as it comes
It has also been confirmed that Shigeru Ohmori is to showcase the world first Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon news during tomorrow's Pokénchi episode, due to air at 00:00 BST / 19:00 EDT / 16:00 PDT. We'll bring full news as it comes
Note that the bold was present on the original site as well.

That all being said, however, if this is indeed related to Pokémon, we'll probably find out tomorrow with that first news thing on Pokenchi.
