Re: dusknoir moveset
It depends on what role you want it to play.
Dusknoir is usually used as a defensive wall and spin blocker. Will-O-Wisp is a very useful move on a Pokemon like this to reduce the damage it takes by other pokemon and also get residual damage. Pain Split is essential to recover damage as Dusknoir will be taking a lot as your wall. Shadow Punch could be used to make Dusknoir not completely Taunt bait, and Shadow Sneak could work in some instances too. Elemental Punches can round out coverage if you want to deal damage, and Brick Break can be used to get rid of Light Screen and Reflect plus it can do damage to Normal types who aren't affected by your STAB. Trick Room could be useful if your whole team is extremely slow, and Gravity could be a useful move to use in Double Battles. Mean Look and Toxic can be used to trap Pokemon you know you can beat. Trick is also a nice option if you want to trick Choice Specs or a Choice Scarf or something. Finally, you can make Dusknoir an all out attacker and give him four damaging moves and a Life Orb or a Choice Band to hold.
Dusknoir is a unique pokemon and can be utilized in many different scenarios.
