Dusknoir (Japanese: ヨノワール Yonoir) is a Ghost-type Pokémon.

Biology

Dusknoir is the evolution of Dusclops, appearing only in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. Dusknoir's body is mostly black, with a yellow horizontal zigzag line on this Pokémon's torso which can open like a mouth (creating the illusion of a face). Dusknoir has now developed arms. Two yellow bands are near its wrists and its grey hands are similar to Dusclops'. Dusknoir has a grey, cylinder-shaped head with another yellow band near the top and a single black eye with a red pupil. Dusknoir has a yellow antenna on top of its head in which allows this Pokémon to receive transmissions from the spirit world, from where it receives commands to take 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. Dusknoir has a ghostly tail instead of feet like Dusclops, resembling the stereotypical depiction of a genie.

Physiology

On Dusknoir's torso there appears to be a face with two yellow eyes and a zig-zagged mouth.

It has lost the legs and wavy, cloth-like objects on its head and back that it had as a Dusclops. The neckband has turned into a double-neckband.

Gender differences

None.

Trivia

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.

Name origin

Yonoir is a combination of yo (another form of yoru--night) and noir (french word for black).

Dusknoir's name is the same as above with dusk replacing yo.
