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

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

Biology

Dusknoir is a primarily black Pokémon somewhat resembling a cyclops. Its cylindrical head is light gray with a single eye that has a yellow iris and a red pupil. Its eyelid resembles a smiling mouth, with its red eye being a tongue. There is a yellow band near the top of its head, and a short, yellow antenna with a disc-shaped tip extends from on top. Six flat projections extend from the base of its neck and surround its head, resembling an upturned collar. Dusknoir has well-developed arms with two yellow bands near its wrists and large, gray hands. On the front of its torso are two almond-shaped marking, and on its back are two circular markings. Both sets of markings resemble eyes. A yellow band encircles its body, zigzagging along the front and forming a long curve around the back. It has a wispy tail in place of feet.

The antenna on Dusknoir's head allows it to receive transmissions from the spirit world, which tell it to bring people there. However, the anime has also shown it protecting people from being taken to the spirit world. The band on its body can open, similar to a mouth. It uses this ability to take spirits into its body and carry them home or as it travels to unknown places.

Trivia

Origin

Dusknoir appears to be a ghostly cyclops. A Japanese one-eyed mountain-dwelling creature named the Yamawarawa may also have been the inspiration for this Pokémon. Like Dusclops, due to its rotund shape and single eye, it may also be based on the Chōchin-obake. Its ability to receive 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.
