Shadow Blitz (Japanese: ダークアタック Dark Attack) 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 Blitz is a Shadow equivalent of the basic damage moves each starter knows upon obtaining, such as Pound, Scratch, and Tackle. Shadow Blitz inflicts damage and has no secondary effect.

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


Games Description
XD A Pokémon throws this tackle while casting a shadowy aura.
