Trivia

  • Unlike Duskull, Dusknoir cannot have the Ability Levitate despite being depicted as floating.
  • The face on Dusknoir's stomach seems to have an angry expression, but the face on its back appears to be smiling. This similar pattern is shared with Spinarak.
  • Dusknoir has the highest base stat total of all non-legendary Ghost-type Pokémon, with 525. It also has the highest Special Defense of all Ghost-type Pokémon.
  • Despite having no feet, Dusknoir can perform Mega Kick if its previous evolution originated from a Generation III game (where a Battle Frontier move tutor can teach Dusclops the move).
  • Dusknoir is the first, and so far only pure 3rd-stage Ghost type Pokémon.

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 is a combination of dusk and noir (French for black).

Yonoir is a combination of 妖魔 yōma (ghost) or 夜 yoru (night) and noir.
