Not to be confused with the Totem Lycanroc who was originally going to appear in Storm's Struggle
Lycanroc is a species of Pokemon appearing in The Legend of Fox the Brave. They are a Rock-Type Pokemon from a World unknown(Alola). As of the recent reveal from Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, there are three forms: Midday, Midnight, and Dusk; all are the evolved form of the Puppy Pokemon Rockruff.
- Normal: Midday Lycanroc resembles a non-anthropomorphic wolf with a white face, muzzle, bushy tail, and mane, a brown nose and claws, brown-tipped pointed ears, blue eyes, tan fur, and four long rocky spikes in its thick mane.
- Shiny: Shiny Midday Lycanroc have blue fur, a white face, tail, mane, and paws, and green eyes. Their claws, ear-tips, and mane-spikes remain the same color
- Albino: Albino Midday Lycanroc have pale cream fur with slightly darker claws, ear-tips, and rock spikes and grayish-blue eyes.
- Melanistic: Melanistic Midday Lycanroc have dark blackish-purple fur with a stone gray muzzle, face, paws, tail, and mane, black rock spikes, ear tips, nose, claws, and purplish eyes.
- Normal: Midnight Lycanroc resembles an anthropomorphic wolf with dark red fur. Its paws and face are white, as is the thick fur stretching from below its shoulders to its head; this fur stretches over its face. It has a white belly and chest with shaggy fur on its chest, and a white tuft of fur for a tail. Its claws are dark brown, as are the tips of its floppy ears; Midnight Lycanroc are commonly portrayed with a large vindictive sneer.
- Shiny: Shiny Midnight Lycanroc have blue fur in place of its dark red fur. Its eyes remain red and its white fur remains the same.
- Albino: Albino Midnight Lycanroc's coloring largely resembles that of Albino Midday Lycanroc, but it has more bluish eyes
- Melanistic: Melanistic Midnight Lycanroc's coloring largely resembles that of Melanistic Midday Lycanroc, but with a barely visible red hue. Its eyes are red and its mane, paws, and tail are stone gray.
- Normal: Dusk Lycanroc heavily resembles the Midday Form Lycanroc with the addition of the Midnight Form's mane. It has orange fur, emerald green eyes, a white tail, muzzle, face, paws, mane, and brown claws, mane spikes, and a brown nose. With all colors, when they get angry, a Dusk Form's eyes turn red.
- Shiny: Shiny Dusk has deep blue fur close to that of a Shiny Midnight Lycanroc's. They also have more bluish-green eyes similar in color to that of Monty the Dog.
- Albino: Albino Dusk has very pale off-white fur, barely a few shades deeper than its paws, tail and mane, and eyes that are the same color but much paler than that of its Shiny form.
- Melanistic: Melanistic Dusk greatly resembles Melanistic Midday in terms of color, but with more vibrant body fur, and more purplish eyes.
Midday Lycanroc are typically shown to be honorable and stoic, mostly when in their Sun Packs. They adhere fiercely to their code of honor and greatly abhor any traitorous acts. It is because of this that they greatly despise the Midnight Lycanroc of the Moon Packs because of their roguish and savage behavior. They are fierce, almost violent rivals with the Midnight Lycanroc. Lone Middays tend to keep to themselves, and maintain a distant, calm demeanor. However, mixed-pack Middays are rather open and friendly, like an average human.
Midnight Lycanroc are typically shown to be savage and aggressive, mostly when in their Moon Packs. They despise any "do-gooders", especially if one of their own is a "do-gooder"(like Finnick). These Lycanroc are unafraid to challenge intruders and attack any who happen to be on their territory, regardless of whether or not they have good reason. If a leader believes that any Rockruff belongs in their Pack, they will not hesitate to take what they believe is theirs by right by force if they have to(such as when Dawn and Crunch's father caused a battle to get his children from his former mate's Sun Pack). Some Pack Midnights are the exception to this; the biggest examples being Finnick, Patchm and Patch's unnamed mate. Lone Midnights are still aggressive, but will only attack when provoked.
Dusk Lycanroc are normally very calm and collected, but have a surprisingly fierce temperament in battle. They are typically revered by other Lycanroc because of their calm, detached approach to their problem, and the wisdom gained through their visions and dreams. Foresight Dusks are known to have a wise, calm demeanor, while non-foresight Dusks tend to act similar to Middays. A non-foresight Dusk's personality varies as much as a human's; for example Dawn is calm and friendly, while her brother Crunch is aggressive and hot-headed.

The Packs of Lycanroc adhere to a strict code: Trespassers and inter-Pack relationships are not allowed. Lycanroc who have broken this code are at risk of being banished from the Pack. Despite this risk, Lycanroc Packs are tight-knit, and their warriors are very close. Dusk Lycanroc live alone, as an unspoken rule. Sibling and mate pairings are not uncommon, with pairings of different Formes being exceedingly rare. Dusks of a certain island or area stay in that area so other Lycanroc can find them if needed.
Like the rest of the Four Worlds, the Lycanroc Packs believe in the Spirits in the Stars, the idea that their ancestors look down on them from the stars.
The Sun and Moon Packs live in the Alola Region, one Sun Pack and Moon Pack on each island. The Angel Island Pack currently lives on Angel Island on Mobius.
The Packs' history is largely unknown. What is known is that the four Sun Packs clashed frequently with the four Moon Packs on their respective islands. Even after the Four Worlds were discovered, the Packs remained in Alola, though several members left. Lucas left his Sun Pack to be with his mate Sora, taking their son Lycus with them; Finnick was banished from his Moon Pack by his leader; a Dusk named Hooper gathered some warriors from the Sun and Moon Packs to create a Pack of his own to move to Mobius. During the Great Eggman War, it was revealed that the Packs are still living in Alola, as after some refugees of a city struck by the Metal Virus were moved to Poni Island, Boulder met a trio of Moon Pack Midnight Lycanroc.
It was confirmed in End of the Worlds that the Sun and Moon Packs still live in Alola, as Boulder encountered a trio of Midnight Lycanroc apart of the Poni Moon Pack.
Up until the appearances of first his grandson-in-law Nick, and later Crystal's Pack, Finnick was currently the only Lycanroc to go against the typical behavior of his kind. He is a Midnight Lycanroc who is actually very kind-hearted while others are savage and aggressive
It is rare, but not unheard of, for a Rockruff to evolve into a Lycanroc form different from either of its parents. Examples of this are:
- Lycus, a Midnight form with a Midday father and a Dusk mother
- Boulder, a Dusk form with Midnight parents
- Dawn and Crunch, two Dusk forms with a Midday mother and a Midnight father.
- Crystal, a Dusk form with Midday parents; She also has a Dusk grandfather
