    fat retreat cost.
    weakness minor draw back.
    resistance ok.
    hp average.

    Poke-Power.... nice...
    goodbye delcatty.

    Attack power for a stage 2 pokemon is rather to moderate.

    I'll give it: 6.75/10

    Combos great with Nidoqueen MT. Your opponents that rely on large benches, like Kriketune, will be severely crippled!

    I'll give him a 7/10ish

    Great attack, great resistance, great attack with DRE.
    Bad retreat cost.

    nice power, combo with nidoqueen MT.
    atk is good on late game, with scramble energy help.

    Happy Halloween everybody,

    I like this card very much it can misuse dre quit good, it can get trough kingdra's body and it's good against swarming/large bench. As said before it cobo's nicly whit nidoqueen MT. Whit the new Duskull it's even faster setup and there are a few good dusclops out there. The resistance can get you killed especially in the future whit the weavle + darkrai combo. A drawback is that its attack is not good against :psychic: weak pokémon as it lays down damage counters. Another drawback is sabley can disable his attack and do massive damage for only one energy so watch out for them. I really love this card i'm going to make myself an nidoqueen deck right now :p.

    I can See this card fitting in very well in my wifes Queen deck for some extra punch. Plus when playing psychic decks you should play phoebe's stadium anyway which makes this bad boy only 1 retreat. 9/10

    This guy is cool; perfect for Halloween! His Pokepower is awesome and his ataack isn't bad at all. This would be a good card if you and your opponent just have 1 prize left so then this guy would hit 100. The main bad thing is the retreat cost and the weakness not might be good. I would give this card an 8/10. P.S. Happy Halloween!!!

    Today's Halloween special is Dusknoir. With 120 HP, a Weakness to an uncommonly played type (for now) and Resistence to Colorless (yay Blissey counter) and a Retreat Cost of 3, Dusknoir is a decent enough card. Dark Palm is a neat Poke-Power, but limited in its usefulness as it requires your opponent to have 4 or more benched Pokemon (and from at least what I've seen, you'll usually not see benches that large). Hard Feelings is a tad expensive, but placing 5 damage counters plus 1 more for each Prize your opponent has taken is great near the end of the game.

    Modified - 7/5/10 (Playable [DuskQueen], but overall is something that you may want to avoid in the future as I think Dark decks will see a rise. But still a great Blissey counter)
    Limited - 8/10 (If you get the line to play it, this card can be pretty solid here)
    Unlimited - 1/10 (Hard to get out, gets eaten by SER, and is weak to Neo Sneasel)
  10. One of my favorite Pokemon... I used it once. 3, I think. Don't think I could get it out quick enough. Oh well, even if it was horrible, I'd prolly still use it, just b/c its Dusknoir.

    Well this card is pretty much a one-hit wonder. I'd suggest don't play it until you have Duskull/Rare candy comebo in your hand. Then warp Point their heavy hitter to their bench and POW! Too much work :/

    YyayY!!! Im glad Dusknoir is getting spotlight and during Halloween!

    Well, He is solid on HP and is a good Stop sign to decks like, T2tuned and other decks that like to swarm. Of course most people know it goes well with MT Queen... Being able to max there bench at 3 pkmn can give yourself a nice advantage.

    Its attack is nice. Placing damage can be good or bad. Seeing as theres a chance they could be weak to psychic but they may be resistant, and from what ive seen,
    Dark types are going to get big. Which isnt a good thing for this card.

    Mod. 8/10 (Nice card, but has a rough future in store)

    Limited. 8/10 (Could be good if you can pull the line up)

    Yeah really amazing card. I'd say 9/10. I play it in my deck and it can be a really good card if you play it right. All I lack is skill. Its power works great with Mightyena EX because Driving Howl poke power switches the opponent's active and one of his/her benched. Then Dark Palm can remove a main source of attack if there are 4+ benched. And Phoebe's Stadium is a must with the card also. And yes I have really come back when I'm down on prizes. Just put out a boost with Dusknoir then your doing up to 10 damage counters if your opponent has a ton of prizes. Final verdict: Brilliant!

    among my best of friends in my deck, and as said many a time, goes great with queen and mightyena ex.
    i love how well it works with DRE and scramble.

    Rofl at the people saying this card does anything to Kriketune (count their bench, people)

    I think people would be surprised to see how well a deck can do with only 3 benched Pokemon, not to mention the attack is weak. Add in the fact Dusknoir is a Stage 2 with a fat retreat and it pretty much seals it as unplayable. I've yet to see a competitive deck make use of it.

    Although, it was the perfect choice for Halloween xD

    Lol I am sorry I love running it myself the tings I have noticed beautiful with double rainbow energy... um the double nidoqueen grouping is a nice compliment to it and then there is always mightyena ex and you have yourself a d eck I am trying to get moving faster than a coughing stutter.

    Um I personally liked dusknoir sense it came out a very powerful attack in stage two decks in this format due to all the speed decks the opponenet will always get a prize or two at least on you. htough it fails horribly on its own to blissey as you cant strengthen the attack...

    Yeah the new Duskull is awsome and can really help the deck. It is my recomendation to play it with CG Dusclops because hes actually pretty good unlike the one newest Dusclops in the first D/P set.
