Yamask (Japanese: デスマス Desumasu) is a type Pokémon introduced in Generation V. Yamask are often found near ancient desert burial sites guarding treasure and bodies. There are many artifacts depicting this Pokémon. They were thought to be extinct until an archeological dig unearthed a golden mask. That night, the mask disappeared. The next night they found the mask floating in the air with a singular eye floating above its head. When they shined a light at it they realized it was Yamask. Yamask and Cofagrigus have the new Mummy ability.-
Yamask is a black, shadow-like figure with two limbs protruding from its upper body. On the end of its "tail", it holds a gold mask. Yamask's eyes are red with a small black pupil in the middle.
|Each of them carries a mask that used to be its face when it was a person. Sometimes they look at it and cry.|
|These Pokémon arose from the spirits of people interred in graves in past ages. Each retains memories of its former life.|
