My name is Dusknoir
I’m a big bad ghost
When your ahead in prizes
I hurt you the most


Unlimited: Even though the weakness is 30+ Sneasel still eats it.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: Good Power, Good Attack, Good Resistance. This might have potential but will wait until the Format change.

Rating : 2.5/5

Limited : Evil pure Evil if you can get it. 50 on the bench kills mostly every basic.
And the power to reduce your opponents Bench is GOOD here.

Rating : 3/5

Dusknoir
 
Dusknoir has a fantastic prevolution, and an even better pokepower. Many decks fill their bench for the purposes of support pokémon and for delta draws. Dusknoir also makes a brilliant combo with giant stump, you can shuffle one of their support pokes (Dragonite or Flygon) then lock down giant stump - they will not be able to rebuild it and have no opportunity to discard a damaged ex either. Dusky's attack is of average efficiency, not very powerful but you would not want him active because of the high retreat cost. Dusclops only has a retreat cost of [1] so Cursed Glare can provide effect before you retreat and evolve. Time will tell if Dusky sees the tournament play he appears to deserve
 
4/5

Dusknoir Lv. 42 Diamond & Pearl
 
Hey there Pojoer’s. Today’s COTD is one of the most anticipated new pokemon is D&P, Dusknoir deserves that anticipation. Dark Palm is a very nice Poke’ power, can anyone say pokemon reversal? Hard Feelings is also a very nice attack, with the right circumstances (or if your totally getting beat.) then Hard Feelings can do 100 unblockable damage. The three retreat is a bit much, I mean who in there right mind would waste three energy just to retreat a pokemon. The 120 HP id decent though, and thanks to the new weakness rule, dark weakness doesn’t mean he has to watch out for anti-Banette decks like Shiftry and stuff.
 
Pros-
Nice attack
Nice Poke’ power
Pokemon reversal
 
Cons-
Three retreat and dark weakness (only half a con each.)
 
Unlimited – Still to slow, and even if he didn’t have dark weakness, Sneasle would still own this guy. 1/5
 
Modified – WOW, this guy looks great on card. Just add in a few pokemon reversals and this guy rocks. 4.5/5
 
Limited – Grand here, as most of the time both players will have a full bench. If you can get him out that is. 5/5

Hey There pojo its Me again here on Thursday for Another Pokemon Card Review! Today were looking at Dusknoir the New Evolution to Duskclops and I must Say I kinda like this Guy so Lets get Right down to the Review.
 
Ok He’s a Psychic type with 120 Hp, a plus 30 weakness to Dark, a -20 Resistance to normal, and a retreat cost of 3. Just from that he seems like an Average Stage 2 and he Pretty much is but Lets get to his Powers and attack Shall We? His Pokemon Power Dark Palm is Great when your opponent Has an Almost Full Bench, if your opponent has 4 or more Pokemon on the Bench chose one and shuffle it and all Cards attached to it back into the opponents deck, anyone playing with a Call For Family Pokemon may regret it when they see there next in line and all cards attached to him get bounced back into the deck. Quite a few May see the power as Useless but I see it as the start of something good. His Only Attack Hard Feelings takes 2 Psychic and one Colorless Energy to Perform and Has no Base Damage. Now at first Glance your thinking well that Sucks…but then you Read on and read as Follows… Put 5 Damage Counters on the Defending Pokemon, then Count the Number of Prize cards your opponent has taken and place that many on the defending Pokemon, so Basically Were looking at a Range of 50 to 100 Damage on a Stage 2 non Ex or non LV X that’s Not to Shabby even if to get the best Results you have to be Behind in the Game he Allows you to turn that Into an Advantage or Provide you with an Advantage so your Opponent doesn’t get them prize Cards. Basically Take him or leave him but I think this Guy has some Amazing potential in the right deck.
 
Unlimited: 3.5/5 Could Derail a Nicely set up Rain Dance
 
Modified: 4/5 has the power to knock off quite a few Basic Pokemon in one Strike, but against an Evolution he’s most likely going to need a couple turns…
 
Limited: 4/5 if you Can get him out then you should have a great Chance at Winning the Game.
