Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

In this game, Dusknoir plays a good guy in the beginning, when you first meet him. Everybody thinks he is a great and famous explorer. He saves you a few times too. But when you capture the "evil" Grovyle (who's really your partner when you were a human), Dusknoir grabs you and your partner and drags you into another world. You end up battling him and several Sableye before going to Temporal Tower.

In Explorers of Sky special, Dusknoir redeems himself by saving Grovyle twice and aided in the defeat of Primal Dialga in the future.

Main articles: Conway's Dusknoir and Farrell's Dusknoir

In Ghoul Daze!, it guards a tunnel that leads into the spirit world. Dusknoir prevents a rebel ghost child from taking humans into the spirit world, saving Ash and Angie.

In Working on a Right Move!, Conway used his Dusknoir against Ash in the Sinnoh League but lost.

Trivia

Origin

Dusknoir appears to be based on the Grim Reaper or a shinigami with elements of cyclopes (especially the Japanese Yamawarawa), genies, and chōchin-obake (a type of ghost from Japanese mythology that takes the form of a paper lantern with a face).

Name Etymology

Dusknoir's name is a portmanteau of dusk (late evening) and noir (French for "black").

Yonowāru is a portmanteau of 妖魔 (yōma, Japanese for "ghost") or 夜 (yoru, Japanese for "night") and noir.
