Gladion's Lycanroc (Japanese: グラジオのルガルガン Glazio's Lugarugan) is a Pokémon owned by Gladion.


Lycanroc and Gladion

Lycanroc debuted in A Glaring Rivalry!, where it had a battle against Tupp, Zipp, Rapp, and their Pokémon. It managed to quickly defeat them with a single Stone Edge. It was later used in a battle against a Sailor's Blastoise and won, despite having a type disadvantage. It also had a battle against Ash's Rockruff but the battle was interrupted by Team Rocket where it and Pikachu were captured in a net but were freed by Umbreon's Dark Pulse.

In Rising from the Ruins!, Lycanroc left its Trainer to go and find Rockruff after hearing its howling. It eventually met up with Olivia's Lycanroc and took Rockruff to the Ruins of Life. There, they encountered Tapu Lele, who attacked them. After a quick fight it uses Draining Kiss on both Lycanroc and transfers the energy to Rockruff. Lycanroc later watched as Rockruff evolved into Lycanroc Dusk Form. Afterwards, Lycanroc returned to Gladion.

After accompanying Gladion when he confronted Ash in Mission: Total Recall!, they returned to their hotel room. They were confronted by Faba, who demanded that Gladion return Type: Null, which Gladion refused to do. Alongside Umbreon, Lycanroc battled Faba's Hypno and Alakazam, only to be taken out of the fight by Hypno's Hypnosis.

In Rescuing the Unwilling!, Gladion used Lycanroc and Umbreon to fight Lusamine's Absol, which was controlled by Nihilego, to allow Ash to save Lusamine. They were eventually trapped by Absol's Mean Look. In 10,000,000 Reasons to Fight!, Lycanroc was released from the Mean Look after Silvally used Multi-Attack on Absol. Soon afterwards, Gladion and Lycanroc used Continental Crush on Absol. Although Absol appeared to have been defeated by this move, Nihilego made it get back up and continue battling. Gladion told Lycanroc and Umbreon to take care of Absol while he rode off on Silvally to get to Lusamine.

In Filling the Light with Darkness!, Lycanroc was used to help clear the mysterious black clouds that had appeared in Alola's skies. By combining its Z-Power alongside Ash's Pikachu, Kiawe's Marowak, and Lana's Popplio, the Ultra Guardians powered a machine that managed to disperse the clouds.

In Securing the Future!, Lycanroc joined the rest of Alola in showering Necrozma with light so it could return to its true form.

In Showdown on Poni Island!, Lycanroc was battling its teammates on Poni Island. The battle was interrupted when Lillie arrived. Gladion later used Lycanroc in his battle against Ash, where it went up against his own Lycanroc. Gladion's Lycanroc was able to withstand Splintered Stormshards before winning the match with Devastating Drake.

In SM127, Gladion used Lycanroc in his grand trial match against Hapu, where it went up against her Golurk and defeated it with Devastating Drake.

In SM132, Gladion used Lycanroc in his Manalo Conference match against James, going up against his Mareanie. When James and Mareanie attempted to use Black Hole Eclipse, Gladion and Lycanroc countered with Continental Crush before defeating Mareanie with Stone Edge, allowing Gladion to progress to the next round.

In SM135, Gladion sent out Lycanroc as his first Pokémon in his battle against Kiawe in the Manalo Conference semifinals. First, Lycanroc went up against Kiawe's Marowak, whom it managed to defeat with relative ease, despite taking a hit from Iron Head. Next Lycanroc faced Turtonator, whom it dealt heavy damage onto with Outrage, while also surviving a hit from Shell Trap. However, Turtonator was able to endure Lycanroc's attacks and ended up learning Focus Blast, which it used to defeat Lycanroc.

Personality and characteristics

Lycanroc is shown as a caring Pokémon as evident in Rising from the Ruins! where it left its Trainer of its own accord to go to the aid of Ash's Rockruff and defended it against Tapu Lele. It is a powerful Pokémon, able to overwhelm opponents with its strength.
