Welcome back, Trainers! We'll be taking a look at Dusknoir in this installment of Generation Preparation. Let's get started!
CATEGORY: Gripper Pokémon
HEIGHT: 7' 03"
WEIGHT: 235.0 lbs.
MAX CP: 2046
Dusknoir is the evolved form of Dusclops. We expect it to cost 100 Duskull Candy to evolve a Dusclops. A Reaper Cloth is required in the main-series, and we wouldn't be surprised if Niantic adds this item into Pokémon GO.
PLACE IN THE META: We do not expect Dusknoir to have much use in Pokémon GO. While Dusknoir's Defense is quite good, its Attack is underwhelming and its Stamina is rather low for a fully-evolved Pokémon. When compared to Gengar and Giratina, Dusknoir is going to be outclassed.
Dusknoir is a pure Ghost-type. This makes it weak to Ghost- and Dark-type attacks, resistant to Poison- and Bug-type attacks, as well as "immune" to Normal- and Fighting-type attacks.
LIKELY MOVEPOOL: Out of the Fast Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Dusknoir:
Out of the Charged Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Dusknoir:
Should Niantic add any new moves, the following are good candidates for Dusknoir's movepool:
LOOKING AHEAD: Looking beyond Generation 4, Dusknoir gains no evolution, exclusive Z-Move, or Mega Evolution.
Thanks for reading, Trainers!
