Duskull (Japanese: ヨマワル Yomawaru) is a Ghost-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Dusclops starting at level 37, which evolves into Dusknoir when traded while holding a Reaper Cloth.

Biology

Duskull is a stylized personification of the Grim Reaper. Its body is a black robe with two bones on its back. It has a mask that resembles a skull and has a single eye that floats between the eye sockets.

Duskull is also able to become invisible to sneak up on its prey and go through walls. Duskull is primarily a nocturnal Pokémon and has been shown to live in thick forests. It is said that this Pokémon will spirit away disobedient children, and it has been described to enjoy the crying of children. Once Duskull chooses a target, it will doggedly pursue the intended victim until the break of dawn.

Trivia

  • Duskull can be seen as a parallel to Shuppet. Both are Generation III Ghost-type Pokémon. Both evolve into their evolved forms starting at level 37. Both also have the same base stat total.
  • Duskull, along with Shedinja and Galarian Yamask, have the lowest base Special Attack of all Ghost-type Pokémon.

Origin

Duskull may be based on the Grim Reaper or the bogeyman. The Japanese equivalent of the bogeyman is called the Namahage. Its shape is similar to a Hitodama, the Japanese representation of a human soul.

Name origin

Duskull is a combination of dusk and skull.

Yomawaru is a combination of 妖魔 yōma (ghost) and 悪 waru (bad thing/person). It may also derive from 夜回り yomawari (night watch[man]) or 夜回る yomawaru (night wanderer). It is also similar to Yamawarawa (a hairy, one-eyed spirit, sometimes considered a kappa), present in The Illustrated Night Parade of a Hundred Demons.
