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 grey hands are similar to Dusclops'. 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. Dusknoir has a gray neck collar divided into six flaps; three growing out of each side of it's neck. The collar ends in a v-neck at the front. Dusknoir has a ghostly tail instead of feet like Dusclops, resembling the typical depiction of a genie. 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. In addition, it may have ties to the Grim Reaper, as the player needs a Reaper Cloth in order for it to evolve.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

In addition to the usual powers most ghost Pokémon possess, they also have great physical strength and can learn 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.
