Pokemon Sun and Moon players will soon be able to add a special Midnight Form Lycanroc to their teams. GameStop is distributing the Rock-type Pokemon via a serial code at select stores across the US. The distribution runs from May 15 to June 5.

What sets this Lycanroc apart from the ones you can capture within the games is its Hidden Ability, No Guard, which ensures that every move executed in battle (by both you and your opponent) hits its target. Lycanroc also comes equipped with a Life Orb, which boosts its damage output at the expense of a little health every turn, and knows the following moves:

  • Stone Edge
  • Fire Fang
  • Sucker Punch
  • Swords Dance

To download the Pokemon, select the Mystery Gift option from the menu screen and choose to receive your gift via a code. After inputting the code, you can collect your new Lycanroc from the deliveryman within any of the games' Pokemon Centers.

The distribution coincides with the release of the second Sun and Moon expansion for Pokemon TCG, Guardians Rising, which is available in stores now. The expansion adds 169 new cards to the game, including 12 new Pokemon-GX cards.

Pokemon Sun and Moon are the fast-selling installments in the series' history, selling over 14 million copies within their first two months.
