Shadow Panic (Japanese: ダークパニック Dark Panic) 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.


Shadow Panic confuses any Pokémon on the opposing side. It does not affect those with the Own Tempo Ability or those with the Soundproof Ability.

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


Games Description
XD A shadowy aura emanates to cause a confuse condition.
