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 all opponents.

Shadow Panic is a sound-based move, so cannot affect Pokémon with Soundproof.

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.
