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

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

Contents

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 a 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 wave these hands to hypnotize opponents, and then force them to do as it wills. Dusclops usually lives in thick forests.

Major appearances

Dusclops debuted in Jirachi: Wish Maker, under the ownership of Butler. It was used for a magic act during the Millennium Festival. When Team Rocket crashed the show and attempted to steal Pikachu and Butler's other Pokémon, he used Dusclops to send the trio blasting off. Butler later used it to force Jirachi to open its Eye of Truth.

A Dusclops debuted in Disaster of Disguise, under the ownership of Timmy Grimm, who has owned it since it was a Duskull. It easily defeated Drew's Roselia. It was then used in the Verdanturf Contest in Disguise Da Limit, where it faced off against May's Skitty in the Battle Stage and lost. Timmy's father, Tommy, also used a Dusclops when he was a Coordinator himself, as seen in a flashback in Disaster of Disguise.

A Dusclops appeared in PK15. It was one of the residents of a spooky house.

A Dusclops appeared in Gathering the Gang of Four and Pace - The Final Frontier!, under the ownership of Brandon. It was used against Ash at the Battle Pyramid. Dusclops proved to be quite powerful, being able to defeat Charizard before being taken down by Bulbasaur.

Two Dusclops appeared in JN016, where Team Rocket received them from the Rocket Prize Master. They were used to battle a Gengar, only to be defeated when Gengar received assistance from Pikachu.

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.
