Duskull and Dusclops

Duskull and Dusclops

Pokémon GO Duskull evolves into Pokémon GO Dusclops, after you spend 50 Duskull candy on one of the weakest Gen III Pokémon evolutions. Duskull and Dusclops are ghost type and also known as the “Requiem and Beckon Pokémon”.

Dusclops Max CP is 1335 (super low!) and it has a very weird stat distribution: super low stamina (80), very low attack (124) and a lot of defense (234). With ATK (124), STA (80) and DEF (234). If you’re looking for a good Gen III ghost, check out Banette.

Duskull and Dusclops are among the first Gen III Pokémon to be released during the Halloween 2017 event.

Dusclops in Pokémon GO

Dusclops is a very weak, albeit bulky, Pokémon that only serves as a Pokédex filler. Even in the core games its usage was limited and niche.

Dusclops evolves into Dusknoir in Generation 4, likely for 100 Duskull Candy. As we see no use for Duskull and Dusclops at the moment, our only advice is to “Save your Candy”.

Dusknoir will have 2046 Max CP according to the current CP formula.

Best Dusclops Moves and Movesets in Pokémon GO

In terms of DPS the best Dusclops moveset is Hex / Shadow Punch, closely followed by Feint Attack / Shadow Punch. Although interesting, Ice Punch and Fire Punch are considered to be a “flavour addition” to Dusclops move pool.
