Dusclops (サマヨール) is the 149th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Ghost type, and is known as the Beckon Pokémon.

Duskull can evolve into a Dusclops starting at Level 37. Starting in Generation IV onward, Dusclops can evolve a second time into a Dusknoir if it is traded to another game while holding a Reaper Cloth.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Dusclops is listed in the Under-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. With the addition of Eviolite, Dusclops' solid defenses become an even bigger strength, making for a great mixed wall. Despite its slow speed it can provide Trick Room support to other teammates that benefit from such support, and it also has access to Status Condition moves such as Will-O-Wisp.

Dusclops isn't the best spinblocker in the 5th Generation Metagame, and its Offensive stats are considerably lacking. Additionally, despite its great defenses its HP is considerably low.
