Dusknoir (Japanese: ヨノワール Yonoir) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Dusclops when traded holding a Reaper Cloth. It is the final form of Duskull.

Biology

Physiology

Dusknoir's body is mostly black, with two almond shaped eye-like markings and a yellow horizontal zigzag line on this Pokémon's torso which can open like a mouth (creating the illusion of a face) and fire powerful attacks. Dusknoir now has fully developed arms. Two yellow bands are near its black wrists and its gray hands are similar to Dusclops's. Dusknoir has a gray, cylinder-shaped head with another yellow band near the top and a single black glaring eye with a yellow iris and a red pupil. The tattered fringes of Dusknoir's lapels converge into a shawl collar on its upper chest. Dusknoir has a ghostly tail rather than feet, reminiscent of a genie, or a stylized 'cartoonish' depiction of a ghost. Dusknoir has a yellow antenna on top of its head in which allows this Pokémon to receive transmissions from the spirit world which tell it to bring people there.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Dusknoir possess the ability to receive radio waves from the spirit world, and can also hold lost spirits in the mouth-like hole in its belly. Dusknoir also has abilities typical of a Ghost Pokémon, but also has vast physical strength and can perform the elemental punches.

Behavior

They receive radio signals from the spirit world that tell it to bring people there. In the anime however, a Dusknoir was seen protecting Ash and Angie from being sucked into a portal to the spirit realm by a demon.

Habitat

They tend to prefer dark areas best.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Dusknoir made its debut appearance in Ghoul Daze! where it tried to protect humans from a demonic girl who was trying to send them to the spirit world. However, Dusknoir was often blamed for the trouble that the girl caused.

Another Dusknoir appeared in the opening of Arceus and the Jewel of Life.

Conway's Dusknoir appeared in DP185, succumbing to Ash's Gible's Dragon Pulse after getting rid of both his Noctowl and Donphan.

Trivia

  • Dusknoir cannot have the ability Levitate, despite the fact that it floats, and its first form does.
  • While the "face" on Dusknoir's stomach seems to have an angry expression, the face on its back appears to be smiling.
  • Dusknoir has the highest Special Defense out of all Ghost-type Pokémon.
  • Dusknoir is the second heaviest non-legendary Ghost-type Pokémon, after Spiritomb. It is, however, the heaviest pure Ghost-type, and also the tallest. Of all Ghost-type Pokémon, only Giratina is taller.
  • Dusknoir has similarities with Darkrai. They are both portrayed as villains in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, but they are portrayed as misunderstood heroes in their debut appearances in the anime.
  • Although Dusknoir has no legs, it can learn Mega Kick because its pre-evolution has legs and is therefore able to learn it by move tutor in the Generation III games.
  • Dusknoir is to date the only fully evolved three stage pure Ghost-type.

Origin

Dusknoir appears to be a ghostly cyclops. A Japanese one-eyed mountain-dwelling creature named the Yamawarawa may have been the inspiration for this Pokémon. The fact that it receives transmissions from the world of spirits may be based on paranormal explanations for electronic voice phenomena.

Name origin

Dusknoir's name is derived from dusk and noir, which is French for black.

Yonoir is a combination of noir and 妖魔 yōma, meaning ghost, or 夜 yo or yoru, meaning night.

In other languages

  • German: Zwirrfinst - From Zwielicht (twilight), wirr (chaotic), and Finsternis (darkness).
  • French: Noctunoir - From nocturne (nocturnal) and noir (black).
  • Korean: 야느와르몽 Yanoirmong
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 夜黑魔人 Yè Hēi Mó Rén - Literally "Night/black sorcerer".
