Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness (Japanese: ポケモンXD 旋風ダーク・ルギア Pokémon XD: Whirlwind of Darkness, Dark Lugia) is Genius Sonority's second Pokémon game for the Nintendo GameCube. The "XD" in the title stands for "eXtra Dimension."

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.

Generation IV

These Pokémon are not catchable, but they have special roles in the game. The Herbalist's Munchlax will often appear at a Poké Spot and make the hero receive a false alarm that a wild Pokémon has appeared to eat his Poké Snacks. When the hero finds Munchlax, the Herbalist will appear to take it back to her store, and she will offer the hero 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 allow the hero to play a special bingo card at Realgam Tower, which features Bonsly as a usable Pokémon.

Connectivity

Players can transfer snagged Pokémon from Pokémon XD to any of the portable Generation III games: Ruby, Sapphire, FireRed, LeafGreen and Emerald Version. This transference functions identically to the trading function in the main series games, but can only happen in Phenac City.

  • However, in order to trade to the above, one needs to have completed the Pokémon League (and acquire the ruby and sapphire in FireRed and LeafGreen). There is, though, a way to send Pokémon from XD to Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald without hall of fame data or a second game boy or link cable - one must first trade the XD Pokémon to a game which is compatible, then trade them to Pokémon Colosseum, then trade them to the game you wanted to trade them to. Though trivial, for some it can be vital.

Trivia

  • Though Lugia is the main focus of the game, it has the second highest level of all snaggable Shadow Pokémon in this game (tied with Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Salamence). The Shadow Pokémon of the highest level in this game is a Dragonite.
  • Pokémon XD is only the second true sequel Pokémon game, after the Generation II games, which are a sequel to Generation I.
    • Before the release of Pokémon XD, Reggie Fils-Aime stated that Pokémon XD would not be a sequel to Pokémon Colosseum but rather a whole new game, having a similar style to Ruby and Sapphire.
  • If one trades a Pokémon from Colosseum to a GBA game and then to this game, it will say the Pokémon was met in Distant Land, even though it was caught in the same land, Orre.
  • If a player pre-ordered this game, they could receive a limited edition GameCube skin featuring Shadow Lugia, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Eevee, and Michael.
  • In the game, the player can capture Lugia, then Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres. Coincidentally in The Power of One the antagonist of the movie captures Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres to capture Lugia.
  • The game's name may be a reference to Lugia's original name before the release of Gold and Silver, Pokemon X.
  • Unlike most games, traveling by foot is not required as transportation to get to new lands. Michael uses a scooter instead.
