Additional information (as well as new official art) has surfaced in regard to the new Dusk Form of Lycanroc from a CoroCoro leak and a new Japanese promotional video.

Like the other Lycanroc forms, this one is pure Rock -Type. Its height is 2'07'' (0.8 m), its weight is 55.1 lbs (25 kg), its ability is Tough Claws and it gets both Accelerock (Midday Lycanroc's signature move) and Counter (a move that Midnight Lycanroc learns but Midday Lycanroc doesn't).

The new information also provides final confirmation that Dusk form Lycanroc is an event Pokémon only, akin to Ash-Greninja (and with the same reasons for existing, to be perfectly honest). Dusk Lycanroc cannot be found in the wild and no wild Rockruffs found in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon can evolve into Dusk Lycanroc. The only way to obtain this thing is by evolving a special event Rockruff that will be distributed over the Nintendo Network between November 17, 2017 and January 10, 2018, for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon only (obviously).

One of the things confirmed in this year's Nintendo E3 Direct was, straight from the mouth of Pokemon Company President Tsunekazu Ishihara, that a new main series Pokemon game was in development for the Nintendo Switch.

Unfortunately, despite rumours about a possible Pokemon Stars version of Sun/Moon coming to the Switch this year, this new game will be at least a year away. It's seeming pretty certain now that, although Pokemon Stars may well have been a thing once upon a time, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have taken its place. It's very likely that when Pokemon debuts on the Switch at some point around 2018/2019, it will be an entirely new Generation.

E3 2017 starts here. EA's conference is taking place tonight at 8pm BST - the earliest any E3 conference has ever taken place.

As we normally do, we'll be providing insight and previews into all the E3 conferences and reactions, updates and news to what comes from them. This year, though, instead of being a forum thread on Pokecharms, you'll be able to find all of that on our brand new sister site: GameCrash.

GameCrash launched a few weeks ago specifically to provide a more focused location for the video game industry articles we have posted here in the past. The goal is, rather than to simply be another video game news site that churns out hourly clickbait every day, we will instead be an online games magazine collecting longer and more thought out articles.

This year we will be posting individual articles for each of the conferences detailing when and...
