A Reaper Cloth held by Duskull

A Reaper Cloth appears as a held item on the Secret Wonders Duskull card. It allows Duskull to evolve on the turn it is played. This contrasts with other media, in which the Reaper Cloth allows Dusclops to evolve into Dusknoir rather than Duskull to evolve into Dusclops.
