Dusclops is severely underrepresented in the cross stitch department, or in any department in that matter. Duskull is kind of cute and gets some merchandise and fan art, but its evolution get so little attention. Maybe it’s because duskull has such a cool design that no one wants it to evolve. I love how duskull has two eyes but only one eyeball that’s floating inside it’s empty skull. I mean, that’s super metal. But dusclops just looks doofy and fat.
And suddenly it comes to my attention that most people capitalize pokemon species. This seems wrong to me since dusclops isn’t a proper noun unless it’s the name of a specific pokemon, like how you don’t capitalize “dad” when you say “my dad is a doofus.” You would only capitalize it if you’re using “dad” as a name, like “Dad is such a klutz.” I would say, “this is Pikachu, my pikachu”. I don’t care what the Bulbapedia style guide says.
