The '''Aura Reader''' (Japanese: '''オーラサーチャー''' ''Aura Searcher'') is a piece of equipment found only in [[Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness]]. It is a scanner worn on the ear with a screen which extends in front of the eye. It is an attachment to the [[Snag Machine]].
The Aura Reader does not play any role in [[snagging]] itself, but it plays a critical role beforehand. In a [[Pokémon battle]], when the opponent sends out a {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}, the Aura Reader springs to life and identifies whether or not it has the dark aura of a [[Shadow Pokémon]]. Once the Shadow Pokémon is identified by the Aura Reader, the Snag Machine will allow its wearer to attempt to snag it (it will not function otherwise due to built-in failsafes).
The Aura Reader does not appear in ''[[Pokémon Colosseum]]'', as [[Rui]] can see auras and identify Shadow Pokémon unassisted.
