From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Shadow Bolt (Japanese: ダークサンダー Dark Thunder) is one of several Shadow moves available only in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. Like other Shadow moves, it is forgotten and replaced with another move once the Pokémon is purified. It is Shadow Zapdos's signature move.
Shadow Bolt is a Shadow version of Thunderbolt, and has a 10% chance of inflicting paralysis on the target.
As Shadow Pokémon cannot be traded, and since Pokémon Contests do not exist in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, Shadow Bolt cannot be used in Contests.
