Since Duskull is a ghost-type Pokemon, its rarity becomes more intense, as it lurks in the shadows, out only during special events. However, with the right strategy, you can capture it. The following are some events and situations when you can capture them:

  • Día de Muertos Event: To encounter the cempasúchil crown Duskull, you'll want to participate in the annual Día de Muertos event in Pokemon GO.

  • Halloween Hunts: Duskull can make an appearance during the annual Halloween events. 

  • Nighttime Haunts: Ghost Pokemon are more likely to emerge during the dark hours, so gear up in the night to increase your chances of meeting Duskull.

There is not much that can be done to capture a shiny Duskull since its sight is quite rare. You will only have to wait for favorable conditions and the right events to catch it.
