After successfully downloading the level 10 Rockruff, players will then need to go to a Pokémon centre and pick it up from the bearby Mail Man.

The Rockruff also comes with the item Focus Band, which have a 10 percent chance of protecting your Pokémon from fainting.

Players looking to catch them all will definately be interested in this event Rockruff, as it is the only Pokémon able to evolve into the new Dusk Form Lycanroc (so long as you evolve it between the hours of 5pm and 5:59pm local time.)

Players who pre-purchased Pokémon Gold and Silver on the 3DS’s virtual console will also be able to grab themselves a Celebi Pokémon to use in game via a special serial code.
