Shadow Wave (Japanese: ダークウェーブ Dark Wave) 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 Wave deals damage to both opponents.

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


Games Description
XD Shadowy aura waves are loosed to inflict damage.
