Shadow Break (Japanese: ダークブレイク Dark Break) 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.


Shadow Break inflicts damage and has no secondary effect.

As Shadow Pokémon cannot be traded, and since Pokémon Contests do not exist in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, Shadow Break cannot be used in Contests.


Games Description
XD A shattering ram attack with a shadowy aura.
