'''Shadow moves''' are special [[move]]s known only by [[Shadow Pokémon]]. They have no [[Elemental type|type]] and are noted in the games with a series of dashes in place of a type bar. In Colosseum, Shadow moves have regular effectiveness against any type. In [[Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness]], Shadow moves are super-effective against any non-Shadow [[Pokémon]] and are not very effective against Shadow Pokémon.
Since Shadow Pokémon cannot be [[Trade|traded]], these moves are all exclusive to the two [[Nintendo GameCube|GameCube]] Pokémon RPG games. More accurately, all but Shadow Rush (Asas it's the only move available in [[Pokémon Colosseum]]) are exclusive to Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness.
Many of the Shadow moves are dark, corrupted counterparts of a move that the Shadow Pokémon would normally learn. A major example of this is [[Shadow Lugia]]'s {{m|Shadow Blast}}, which, like the move {{m|Aeroblast}}, sends a high-powered stream of air at the foe, and can only be learned by Lugia. These moves often have lower [[power]] than their non-shadow counterparts.
