Shadow End (Japanese: ダークエンド Dark End) 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 End deals damage, and the user takes recoil damage equal to half of its current HP. The recoil damage from this move is not prevented by Rock Head.

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


Games Description
XD A shadowy aura ram attack that also rebounds on the user.
