Dusclops (Japanese: サマヨール Samayouru) is a Ghost-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Duskull starting at level 37 and evolves into Dusknoir when traded holding a Reaper Cloth.

Biology

Dusclops has a roundish gray body with two stubby legs. Its body is hollow and can absorb anything much like a black hole. It has single red eye and three tooth-like projections. It has two wispy, light gray growths coming out of its shoulders and one on top of its head. Its light gray hands appear to be directly attached to its body. It will have these hands to hypnotize opponents, and then force them to do as it wills. Dusclops usually lives in thick forests.

In the manga

A Dusclops was first seen in Wally's attempt to scale the Sky Pillar to be accepted into Norman's tutelage. It nearly sucked up both Wally and the Treecko he rescued, but the Pokémon evolved and defeated it with a Leaf Blade.

Another Dusclops joins Emerald's team. This Dusclops had been illegally added to the Battle Pike and Emerald determined that it came from Mt. Pyre. He calmed it and took it following the fight at the Artisan Cave.

Game data

NPC appearances

  • Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire: Dusclops has its own mini-game on the Sapphire Table, which can be accessed the first time the three Poké Balls in the middle of the table are lit up. Dusclops will not appear until 20 Duskull have been hit. After that, Dusclops must be hit five times to win. However, it will suck up the ball for a brief period if attacked from the front so it must be hit from behind or while it is moving.

Ruby Dusclops's body is completely hollow - there is nothing at all inside. It is said that its body is like a black hole. This Pokémon will absorb anything into its body, but nothing will ever come back out.
Sapphire Dusclops absorbs anything, however large the object may be. This Pokémon hypnotizes its foe by waving its hands in a macabre manner and by bringing its single eye to bear. The hypnotized foe is made to do Dusclops's bidding.
Emerald It is thought that its body is hollow with only a spectral ball of fire burning inside. However, no one has been able to confirm this theory as fact.
FireRed Its body is entirely hollow. When it opens its mouth, it sucks everything in as if it were a black hole.
