The Midnight Lycanroc was first discovered in the rocky mountains of the Alola region in 2008 when 2 teenagers who were on a hiking trip photographed it, The very same Lycanroc was soon captured the same day when the 2 friends showed a ranger the photographs. The ranger described the animal as aggressive and territorial. Ever since, although very rare to see in the mountains, The rangers of the mountains created a set of safety steps in-case a hiker encounters a Midnight Lycanroc, and has completely banned night-time hiking as they seem to be much more active during the night.
