Secret Sword (move)
| Secret Sword|
しんぴのつるぎ Sword of Mystery
Secret Sword inflicts physical damage. Despite being classified as a special move, this move calculates damage using the user's Special Attack and the opponent's Defense stat (similar to Psyshock and Psystrike).
Despite targeting the opponent's Defense stat, the move's damage is unaffected by Reflect and it will not activate Counter or Shell Trap; instead, it is affected by Light Screen and activates Mirror Coat.
If Keldeo is taught Secret Sword from Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 onward, it will change into Resolute Form. If it forgets Secret Sword, it returns to Ordinary Form. Keldeo taught Secret Sword in Pokémon Black and White remain in Ordinary Form in other games.
By Move Tutor
Various Move Tutors will teach Secret Sword to a Keldeo. In some cases, Keldeo can learn the move when brought to certain locations under certain conditions. The Move Tutors are:
- BW: Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion at the Moor of Icirrus, if the player brings them and Keldeo in the party.
- B2W2: a large rock in the Pledge Grove, if the player brings Keldeo in the party.
- XY: an Ace Trainer in Snowbelle City.
- ORAS: a man in Crooner's Café.
- SMUSUM: a Gentleman in Hano Grand Resort.
