All right, so let me preface this section with how I got into the Pokémon series in the first place. When the anime came out in the United States, I, along with my older sister and cousins, became really interested in it since it was practically everywhere you looked. Bulletin boards, television commercials, McDonald's Happy Meal toys—Burger King promotional toys, where I got my gold plated Jigglypuff card that I still have to this day (my older sister got Charizard!). I'm pretty sure I saw Pokémon: The First Movie in theaters when it came out, too.

Around this time, I also played my first Pokémon game(s), Gold and Silver. They were part of some multi-game cartridge thing that I had, so there were a ton of other Nintendo games along with it. The problem? I had the Japanese version of the games! Everything was in Japanese and, being my first Pokémon game, I had no idea how to save or even where to find it. As a result, I played until my go-to starter Chikorita evolved into a Bayleaf in which at that point... my Gameboy Color was out of batteries. So I never got any farther in the game. It's probably why my interest in Pokémon is pretty mild; I like looking at all the different kinds of Pokémon, but I'm definitely not invested in the strategy or the combat of the games, haha.

Fast-forward to high school and I found myself trying the games once more with Emerald. My friend is a huge fan of Pokémon and, well, her enthusiasm was infectious. Seeing as how everything was in English and I could actually save my game now, it goes without saying that I enjoyed myself immensely.

Because I grew up with Generation I, almost all of my favorite Pokémon are from there, such as Jigglypuff (the childhood favorite!), Gyarados (I know it sucks, but I DON'T CARE) and Gengar. So why do I love Duskull? When it first popped up, I fell in love with it instantly. I adore its design and how badass it is. I mean, it's the Grim Reaper! How cool is that?

Also, I... think it's incredibly cute and cuddly. JUST LOOK AT IT (taken from the 4koma Daihyakka series):

When I realized one of my favorite Pokémon didn't have a fanlisting, I decided to make one myself! It was approved by TheFanlistings.org on June 25, 2016 and AnimeFanlistings.com on July 29, 2016. It was opened on July 23, 2016. Thanks to staff for the approval!

Title

I have quite a few sites with lengthy, cumbersome titles, so when I was thinking up something for Duskull, I wanted it to be succinct. Eventually, I settled on Grim, which is taken from the "Grim Reaper," a mythological figure which may have inspired Duskull's design. I also like how ominous it sounds as it suits the more mischievous and dark side of Duskull's personality.
