'''Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンXDXD {{tt|闇|やみ}}の{{tt|旋風|かぜ}}ダーク・ルギア''' ''Pokémon XD: Whirlwind of Darkness, Dark Lugia'') is [[Genius Sonority]]'s second and final Pokémon game for the [[Nintendo GameCube]]. Theas "XD"well as the second RPG in the titlePokémon standsseries for "eXtraa home console. The game features a [[Battle Mode]] akin to that of its [[Pokémon Colosseum|predecessor]], as well as a Story Mode featuring a brand new plot set in the [[Orre]] Dimensionregion."
 
The game once again takes place in the [[Orre]] region, about five years after the events of [[Pokémon Colosseum]]. In their second attempt at world domination, the criminal organization [[Cipher]] has created a [[Shadow Lugia]], a.k.a "XD001," which they believe is immune to purification.==Plot==
{{spoilers}}
The game once again takes place in the [[Orre]] region, about five years after the events of {{pkmn|Colosseum}}. In their second attempt at world domination, the criminal organization [[Cipher]] has created a [[Shadow Lugia]], codenamed ''XD001'', claimed to be immune to purification. A young {{pkmn|Trainer}}, [[Michael]], aims to defeat Cipher and prevent their plans.
 
==Characters==The game opens with a shot of the [[S.S. Libra]] cruising through the sea, when suddenly some helicopters appear overhead with [[Shadow Lugia]], which picks up the ship. The sailors fall out and watch in awe as it flies away, carrying the ship with it.
See [[:Category:XD characters|XD characters]] category.
 
==Locations==The protagonist, [[Michael]], finds himself using a {{p|Salamence}} to battle a {{p|Metagross}}. No matter what the outcome is, when the battle is over the player will then find himself in the [[Pokémon HQ Lab]], where it is revealed that the battle was merely a simulation. Michael then speaks with [[Professor Krane]] and {{OBP|Lily|XD}}. Prof. Krane comments on Michael's battle skills, and Lily remembers that she hasn't seen [[Jovi]], Michael's younger sister, since lunch.
See [[:Category:XD locations|XD locations]] category.
Lily asks Michael to look for her. Michael finds a [[P★DA]] that Professor Krane left him in his room and gets an e-mail telling him to ask [[Adon]], who was playing hide-and-seek with Jovi. Adon tells Michael to look in [[Dr. Kaminko]]'s house. After watching a report about the missing cargo ship that was carrying loads of Pokémon (the S.S. Libra), Michael goes to Kaminko's house, where he battles by [[Chobin]], who mistakes him for a burglar. After fending him off, Jovi shows up and Michael takes Jovi home.
 
Back at the HQ Lab, Michael talks to Prof. Krane and obtains the [[Snag Machine]], a machine that allows its owner to snag Shadow Pokémon from other Trainers. To complement the machine, Aidan adds a Shadow Monitor to the P★DA. When Professor Krane goes to ready the battle simulator for a test, some men come in and kidnap Professor Krane. Michael follows them outside and battles the leader, [[Naps]], who is using a {{pkmn2|Shadow}} {{p|Teddiursa}}, which Michael snags. However, Prof. Krane is taken away by his captors. Aidan mentions that Prof. Krane is crucial to the Purification Chamber project (a device that allows Shadow Pokémon to be purified), and that there is nothing they can do without him. Lily then says they can complete it themselves, and sends Michael to [[Gateon Port]] to retrieve a crucial part, with Jovi tagging along.
 
At Gateon Port, Jovi runs into [[Zook]], who sends out his Shadow {{p|Zangoose}} in anger. Before he can do anything else, however, a mysterious wealthy man, [[Mr. Verich]], steps in and has one of his bodyguards defeat Zook. Michael and Jovi retrieve the machine part from the mechanic [[Perr]] (snagging a few Shadow Pokémon on the way) and return to the HQ Lab.
 
Lily mentions that there is a place in [[Agate Village]] that can purify Shadow Pokémon, and Michael heads there. While there, he meets Eagun, the elder of Agate Village, who shows Michael the [[Relic Stone]], a stone that has the power to purify Shadow Pokémon. Eagun allows Michael to purify one Pokémon at the Stone, and Michael returns to the HQ Lab.
 
Michael then travels to the [[Cipher Lab]] to rescue Prof. Krane, and successfully does so while defeating Cipher Admin [[Lovrina]]. While at the lab, he finds a [[Data ROM]], and heads to Pyrite Town to speak with [[Secc]] and [[Nett]] at [[ONBS]], to see if they can decode it. After receiving some tips from [[Duking]] about [[Pokespots]], Michael receives a text from [[Nett]] saying to come back to [[Pyrite Town]]. [[Cipher]] has taken over [[ONBS]], and it's up to Michael to defeat them on his way up to see [[Nett]].
 
Michael's next stop is [[Phenac City]]. After his arrival, he finds that the city has been taken over by [[Cipher]]. After defeating the [[Cipher Peon]]s, he heads into the Phenac Stadium and defeats Cipher Admin [[Snattle]], freeing Phenac City.
 
Later, Michael is tipped off by Phenac's [[Trest|mayor]] about Cipher sticking around a strange building, and is also requested by a young girl in [[Pyrite Town]] to go save her Pokémon aboard the [[S.S. Libra]]; but both the strange building and the S.S. Libra are inaccessible due to the heavy sands that Michael's scooter can't pass. After [[Robo Groudon|another misunderstanding]] with [[Chobin]], Michael is able to get advanced wheels that can take him through the heavy sands. Although Michael can find the {{p|Bonsly|specific creature he was requested to find}}, it flees when startled by the [[PDA]], and all the other Pokémon supposedly aboard the ship have also disappeared. After encountering and dueling some more Cipher members, [[Team Snagem]] goons ambush Michael; by using {{m|Sleep Powder}}, they knock him out and steal his [[Snag Machine]] from him.
 
Michael then re-encounters [[Zook]] from [[Gateon Port]] at the [[Cipher Key Lair]], the strange building Justy told him about, but he cannot even attempt to snag his Shadow {{p|Zangoose}}. Also, two bulky guards make the key lair inaccessible to Michael, leaving him trapped out.
 
Fortunately, [[Secc]] at [[ONBS]] directs Michael to [[Hordel]] at the [[Outskirt Stand]]; he directs Michael to the [[Snagem Hideout]]. After battling through the swarm of Snagem members, Michael defeats the leader [[Gonzap]] and reclaims his [[Snag Machine]]; but when they both realize that they are both trying to defeat [[Cipher]], Gonzap agrees to help Michael through the guards. The same {{p|Gloom}} that put Michael to sleep puts the two bulky guards to sleep, letting Michael enter the [[Cipher Key Lair]]; after intensely battling through the many {{pkmn2|Shadow}}-enabled peons in it, and then after shutting down the factory thus ceasing the production of all Shadow Pokémon, Michael confronts and battles the third {{tc|Cipher Admin}}—[[Gorigan]].
 
After defeating the large, ape-like man, [[Mr. Verich]] appears on video and reveals that he is actually [[Greevil]], the true master of Cipher, and that he is hiding on [[Citadark Island]], but the island is in a very stormy area of sea and almost always has terrible weather, making it almost impossible to breach. With the help of [[Makan]], Michael—after getting the [[Master Ball]] from [[Professor Krane]]—enables the [[Robo Kyogre]], and journeys to [[Cipher]]'s last stronghold.
 
There, he battles through [[Lovrina]], [[Snattle]] and [[Gorigan]] a second time and an entire horde of Pokémon, and even battles [[Ardos]] and [[Eldes]], who are two more {{tc|Cipher Admin|Cipher Admins}} and [[Greevil]]'s bodyguards. After going through everyone, Michael battles [[Greevil]] after snagging or defeating [[Shadow Lugia]]. He defeats him, and it is then revealed that Ardos and Eldes are his sons. Ardos wishes to blow up Citadark Island, sacrificing Michael and all the Cipher members and Pokémon on the island so Cipher can live on, but he is ultimately spurned by Eldes, who convinces Greevil that Cipher is finished after being defeated a second time. Ardos storms off, and Eldes and Greevil decide to surrender to the police, thus ensuring Orre's safety.
 
Michael can complete the [[Orre Colosseum]] after this. The five Cipher Admins appear in competitions there, along with Gonzap and his Team Snagem followers as well as Chobin piloting Robo Groudon. Notably, when challenged, Ardos hints of his plans to resurrect Cipher, and upon being defeated, he labels Michael as Cipher's biggest threat.
 
==Blurb==
Experience The Extra Dimension!<br>Using [[Shadow Pokémon]], an evil organization has unleashed a sinister plot of world domination. With {{p|Eevee}} as your companion, and with the help of numerous friends along the way, you must fight against terrible foes and race against time to snag a purify the Shadow Pokémon and save the world!
 
Engage in fantastic battles with your friends! By connecting with a [[Game Boy Advance]]—using a [[Nintendo GameCube]] Game Boy Advance cable—you can import and battle with your Game Boy Advance Pokémon from Pokémon Emerald, FireRed, LeafGreen, Ruby and Sapphire!
 
==Gameplay==
Much like {{pkmn|Colosseum}}, Pokémon XD features a similar 3D gameplay to the [[core series]] of Pokémon games. Mechanics in [[Pokémon battle]]s are directly adapted. Also, similar to its predecessor, Pokémon XD features mostly [[Double Battle]]s instead of Single Battles. Unlike in Colosseum however, [[wild Pokémon]] can be found, albeit only in specific places called [[Poké Spot]]s.
 
===Changes from Pokémon Colosseum===

===Characters===
[[File:XD Michael.png|thumb|right|100px|Michael, as he appears in Pokémon XD]]
{{main|:Category:XD characters|XD characters}}
The [[player character|protagonist]] of Pokémon XD is a young boy named [[Michael]], Trainer of an Eevee. Michael lives with his mother, {{OBP|Lily|XD}}, and his younger sister [[Jovi]]. [[Professor Krane]], a scientist researching Pokémon purification and a family friend, often assists him. A handful of other characters also appear, some returning from {{pkmn|Colosseum}} and some new.
 
The crime organization [[Cipher]] returns in the game with renewed plans. The syndicate includes five new admins: [[Lovrina]], [[Snattle]], [[Gorigan]], [[Ardos]] and [[Eldes]] hired by the team's [[Greevil|boss]]. [[Miror B.]] also appears in the game with new scopes in mind.
 
===Locations===
{{main|:Category:XD locations}}
The game's setting is in the [[Orre]] region, which has been altered after the five years that have passed. More [[wild Pokémon]] have started appearing, but Orre's land is still much less inhabited than other [[region]]s. Pokémon XD features locations not present in Colosseum, as well as landmarks such as [[Mt. Battle]] returning.

===Generation IV===
* {{p|Munchlax}}
* {{p|Bonsly}}
 
These Pokémon are not catchable, but they have special roles in the game. The Herbalist's Munchlax will often appear at a PokéspotPoké Spot and make the heroplayer receive a false alarm that a wild Pokémon has appeared to eat his [[Poké SnacksSnack]]s. When the heroplayer finds Munchlax, the Herbalist will appear to take it back to her store, and she will offer the heroplayer ten more Poké Snacks for his trouble.
 
A girl's Bonsly can be found inside the [[S.S. Libra]] after it appears in the desert. This Bonsly is apparently a Pokémon that Cipher forgot to take to [[Cipher Key Lair]]. After saving Bonsly and taking it to the girl in [[Pyrite Town]], she'll will allow the heroplayer to playuse a special [[Battle Bingo#Bonsly_CardBonsly Card|bingo card]] at [[Realgam Tower]], which features Bonsly as a usableplayable Pokémon.
 
===Prizes=Connectivity==
*Players can transfer snagged Pokémon from Pokémon XD to any of the portable [[Generation III]] games: [[Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire Versions|Ruby, Sapphire]], [[Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Versions|FireRed, LeafGreen]] and {{pv|ChikoritaEmerald}}. withThis {{mtransference functions identically to the [[trade|Frenzytrading]] Plant}}function in the [[core series]] games, but can only happen -in Level[[Phenac 5City]].
*{{p|Cyndaquil}} withIn {{m|Blastorder Burn}}to do the above, one needs to have completed the sidequest to unlock trading with Hoenn-based games in FireRed Leveland 5LeafGreen.
* Through exploitation of differences in linkup requirements, players can send Pokémon from XD to one of the handheld Hoenn games without beating the Elite Four, trading first to a game that has done so, trading from that to {{pg|TotodileColosseum}}, withand {{m|Hydrotrading Cannon}}from Colosseum to -the LevelHoenn 5game.

==Trivia==
*Though {{p|Lugia}}This is the mainlast focusPokémon ofgame theto game,be itreleased is onlyfor the second strongest [[ShadowNintendo PokémonGameCube]] (tied with {{p|Articuno}}, {{p|Zapdos}}, {{p|Moltres}}, and {{p|Salamence}}).
* This is the only Pokémon game that was released outside of the [[core series]] to have a [[game mascot]].
* Though {{p|Lugia}} is the main focus of the game, it has only the second-highest level of snaggable [[Shadow Pokémon]] (tied with {{p|Articuno}}, {{p|Zapdos}}, {{p|Moltres}}, and {{p|Salamence}}), at level 50. The Shadow Pokémon of the highest level in this game is a {{p|Dragonite}} at level 55.
* Before the release of Pokémon XD, {{wp|Reggie Fils-Aime}} stated that Pokémon XD would not be a sequel to {{pkmn|Colosseum}}, but rather a whole new game, having a similar style to {{2v2|Ruby|Sapphire}}.
* If one trades a Pokémon from {{g|Colosseum}} to a [[Game Boy Advance]] game and then to this game, it will say the Pokémon was met in a distant land, even though both Colosseum and XD take place in Orre. A similar oddity occurs if the reverse is done.
* If a player pre-ordered this game, they could receive a limited edition [[Nintendo GameCube|GameCube]] skin featuring [[Shadow Lugia]], {{p|Articuno}}, {{p|Zapdos}}, {{p|Moltres}}, {{p|Eevee}}, and [[Michael]].
* Like in Pokémon Colosseum, Shadow Pokémon are banned from VS mode. However, there are no restrictions on non-Shadow Pokémon that are given [[Shadow move]]s through [[cheating]]. The same lack of restrictions also apply to {{p|Bonsly}}.
* This game and {{g|Colosseum}} are the only RPG Pokémon games released after {{game|Crystal}} to not allow the player to choose their gender.
* The box art for Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness was designed by [[James Turner]]. <ref>[https://twitter.com/JamesTurner_42/status/900861377333542912 Tweet about designing Shadow Lugia and the box art for Pokémon XD]</ref>
