Shadow Sky (Japanese: ダークウェザー Dark Weather) 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.


  This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Can the residual damage be avoided by using any move with a semi-invulnerable turn prevent the damage? (see here)
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Shadow Sky covers the field in a shadowy aura that lasts for five turns.

While in effect it damages all non-Shadow Pokémon at the end of each turn by 1/16 of their maximum HP, boosts the power of Shadow moves by 50%, and changes Weather Ball to become typeless and double its power.


Games Description
XD Darkness hurts all but Shadow Pokémon for 5 turns.
