Welcome to Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. If you need to check on generic Pokémon information, you've got a giant Bulbapedia full of info. Now, let's get started. Make a name for yourself (you may only play as a boy), and you'll be on your way.

Pokémon HQ Lab

You start out by watching the opening cutscene. Shadow Lugia and these shady guys in helicopters steal the S.S. Libra and leave the two pilots in the middle of the ocean with no supplies whatsoever.

Now you'll be partaking in a fight. You're Michael, a red-headed teenager, with a Level 50 Salamence (foreshadow?) against a Level 50 Metagross. Just use Earthquake twice and you'll defeat it. When the battle is over you'll find out it's just a hologram--no Salamence for you. You actually only have a Level 10 Eevee.




You live in a giant mansion/lab that works on Pokémon. Head to the room to the left to you to find your mother Lily and Professor Krane. Lily asks you to find your sister Jovi, and Krane tells you to find a P☆DA. If you don't remember or didn't play Colosseum, the P☆DA is your device with which you can check your Shadow Pokémon, Pokémon Viewed, Mailbox, and Poké Spots.

Now's a good time to explore the Lab and get a feel for the building. One of the rooms is your room (the room next to the one with the Plusle in it) and there's a P☆DA shining on the table. Grab it, and you'll get a preliminary e-mail from Professor Krane. There are also 3 Potions in the room. In the bottom-left room of the second floor is Adon hiding under the desk. Speak to him and he'll give you important information about where Jovi is. Leave the HQ Lab (by leaving the boundaries of the building, of course), and head for the question mark on the map to Kaminko's House.

Kaminko's House

Trying to enter the house leads into Kaminko Aide Chobin, a character probably more important than Kaminko himself, who has awesome glasses and mistakes you for a burglar.




Now that he's out of the way, he'll realize you're a child and apologizes. Enter with the building and listen to (or ignore) Chobin's ramblings. You'll find Jovi annoying Dr. Kaminko. Talk to Jovi and she'll temporarily join your party. Leave the manor, and head home.

Pokémon HQ Lab

The scientists have just finished the Snag Machine, a machine for snagging Shadow Pokémon.On your way out, you'll find Professor Krane being kidnapped. Quickly chase the intruders outside, and you'll see them preparing to run away. Go to them, and one of them turns around and fights you.




Simply throw a Poké Ball to Snag Teddiursa. Despite losing a Shadow Pokémon, Naps and the other two guys scram with Professor Krane. After a long cutscene with the family, they will continue work on their other invention, the Purify Chamber, without Professor Krane. They want you to get a Machine Part at Gateon Port. Jovi wants to be a pain and tag along.

Gateon Port

As soon as you arrive, Jovi decides to make a scene and runs straight into Thug Zook without looking. Zook is a big tough guy with too much pride. Zook threatens to hurt you and Jovi with his Shadow Zangoose, which he releases in public, but before he can, he is stopped by Mr. Verich (someone who has won the favor of Gateon Port by providing free food and drink) and his two bodyguards. The blue-haired one sends out an Alakazam to kill the Zangoose. The three people leave as Zook storms off, and Jovi thanks them, and then Verich turns around and says what just seems like an old-man ramble.

Head into the shop at the left of Gateon Port after running into Jovi's friend. Talk to the guy at the bottom-right, and you'll find he's an Eevee expert. You can give Eevee the:

  • Water Stone for a Vaporeon
  • Thunderstone for a Jolteon
  • Fire Stone for a Flareon
  • Sun Shard for an Espeon
  • Moon Shard for an Umbreon

Choose one and only one, and you can evolve your Eevee with it. Helpful, but not what you were looking for in the Parts Shop. Talk to the guy who just repaired the movable bridges, and he'll take you back to the Shop and give you the Machine Part you needed. Before you leave, if you want two more Shadows in your party, you can use the Bridge System to reach two other Trainers, one on a cliff and one at the top of the lighthouse, in that order.







Well, that's a wrap for Gateon Port. Feel free to do some exploring. If you want to enter the Krabby Club, however, you'll need to do one more harmless battle.




And if you want the TM45 Attract, there's another battle to help raise your Pokémon's experience.




And now it's time to head to Agate Village after heading back to Pokémon HQ Lab for directions.

Dr. Kaminko's House

When you try to enter to find Perr's father, yet again he'll think you're a burglar. Oh well, it's good practice for battles to come.



Still easy. Inside, talk to Makan (aka Perr's dad) and tell him everything. Now head back to the Lab.

Pokémon HQ Lab

Talk to Lily (on the second floor) and you can give her the Machine Part. Jovi will take it and bring it to the Purify Chamber. Lily will tell you to head to Agate Village. Now you're on your way to Agate Village.

Agate Village

Ignore the Trainers here, you don't need them, because you have four required battles as you head through the Cave Path after speaking to Eagun about purification.












After beating them, you're let into the Relic Stone. By now your Teddiursa should be ready for purification. If it isn't, there's tons of Trainers in Agate Village to help you purify. Upon reaching the Relic Stone, Eagun will ask to battle to you.




Pathetic. Now you can purify Teddiursa, and, if you overtrained, Ledyba and Poochyena. Head back to Eagun's house when you're done and talk to Eagun. He'll tell you Vander knows some important information, and that he lives/works at Mt. Battle. You know what to do!

Mt. Battle

As soon as you arrive, Mr. Verich's red-haired bodyguard will arrive and give you a few words of wisdom and leave. And you didn't even get to know his name... Now head into the building and talk to the lady. She'll let you in. Now you've got to find Vander on the third platform of Area 1. Before you get there, though, you'll have to fight three Trainers.










Once you find Vander, you can finally get the information you wanted from him. He tells you that he saw a few Cipher thugs at the once-abandoned Cipher Lab, known to Colosseum players as the "Shadow Pokémon Lab". Now you can finally head there! Stock up on Poké Balls at Agate; you're gonna need them.
