Shadow Fire (Japanese: ダークファイア Dark Fire) is one of several Shadow moves available only in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. Like other Shadow moves, it is forgotten and replaced with another move once the Pokémon is purified. It is the signature move of Shadow Moltres.


Shadow Fire is a Shadow version of Flamethrower. It deals damage and has a 10% chance of burning the target.

As Shadow Pokémon cannot be traded, and since Pokémon Contests do not exist in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, Shadow Fire cannot be used in Contests.


Games Description
XD A shadowy fireball attack that may inflict a burn.
