Secret Sword (Japanese: しんぴのつるぎ Sword of Mystery) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation V. It is the signature move of Keldeo.

Keldeo can only learn the move in Pokémon Black and White via tutoring when the remaining Swords of Justice are also in the party. When the four are brought to the Moor of Icirrus, the trio will teach Keldeo the move. In Pokémon Black and White 2, it can be learned in Pledge Grove, where learning the move causes Keldeo to change to its Resolute Form.


Secret Sword inflicts damage. Although classified as a Special move, this move calculates damage using the user's Special Attack and the opponent's Defense stat (similar to Psyshock and Psystrike).


Games Description
