- This article is about the state Shadow Pokémon enter in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. For its equivalent in Pokémon Colosseum, see Hyper Mode.
Reverse Mode (Japanese: リバース状態 Reverse State) is a condition Shadow Pokémon will sometimes enter in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness after using a move during Pokémon battle. Like Hyper Mode in Pokémon Colosseum, its status meter will turn red and black, and an aura of the same color will appear around the Pokémon, presumably seen with the Aura Reader.
Unlike Hyper Mode, Reverse Mode is not known to increase the critical hit ratio of any Shadow moves. Also unlike Hyper Mode, its activation does not use up a Pokémon's turn. In addition, Reverse Mode can activate even if the Pokémon does not use a Shadow move.
A Pokémon may be purified even when in Reverse Mode.
