How to Evolve Rockruff in Pokemon GO

Similar to other several species in the game, Rockruff can evolve into one of its available forms depending on the time of day. First, you need to save 50 Candy in order to evolve Rockruff. With it, Rockruff currently has two possible forms of evolution in the game: Midday Lycanroc and Midnight Lycanroc.

To get the brown Midday Lycanroc, you need to evolve Rockruff during the daytime. This means that you need to evolve it between sunrise and sunset. Meanwhile, to get the red Midnight Lycanroc, you need to evolve Rockruff during the nighttime. This means that you need to evolve it between sunset and sunrise.

Keep in mind that you can also view which form Rockruff will evolve into based on its silhouette in the Pokémon menu. This is the most reliable way rather than just guessing based on the color of the overworld.
