Pokemon GO Solrock and Lunatone are Pokémon representation of the Sun and the Moon. They share the same stats and maximal Combat Power: 2245. Solrock and Lunatone share the same rock and psychic typing. They are also known as “Meteorite Pokémon” and usually considered each other’s counterpart.
Lunatone is traditionally available during the night and Solrock during the day. We expect both Pokémon to be available in regular grass biomes and deser biomes.
Position in the meta game
Unfortunately both Lunatone and Solrock feature mediocre stats, weak Max CP and an easily counterable type combination. We don’t see any potential as a Raider, nor as a Gym defender/attacker.
In addition, Lunatone and Solrock don’t have a future evolution or a mega evolution. Did someone order two Pokédex fillers?
Lunatone and Solrock Moves
We expect the following moves to be a part of the meteoric duo’s move pool:
- Ancient Power rock
- Confusion psychic
- Fire Blast fire
- Hyper Beam normal
- Iron Head steel
- Psychic psychic
- Psyshock psychic
In addition, we expect that at least some of these moves will be added to Pokemon GO and eventually appear in their move pool:
- Cosmic Power psychic
Shiny Lunatone and Solrock variants
A normal Lunatone is cream colored, with deep red eyes. A normal Solrock is orange in color on the middle portion of its body. It also has eight yellow rock spines on its sides. It has small yellow rocks running vertically along its center, and has yellow eyelids and red pupils.
A shiny Lunatone is white colored, with blue eyes. A shiny Solrock is very similar to its normal counterpart except for the brown color on the middle portion of its body.
Fun fact: Lunatone and Solrock are genderless.
