Duskull (ヨマワル) is the 148th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Ghost type, and is known as the Requiem Pokémon.

Duskull uses the Levitate Ability. This gives Duskull an immunity to damage-dealing Ground-Type attacks such as Earthquake, along with the Spikes entry hazard. Additionally, it cannot be trapped by the Arena Trap Ability.

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

Duskull is in the Amorphous Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 6,400 Steps to hatch. It takes Duskull 800,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
