Shadow Half (Japanese: ダークハーフ Dark Half) 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.

Effect

Shadow Half halves the current HP of all Pokémon in battle, and fails on those with 1 HP remaining. The user cannot take action on the next turn.

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

Description

Games Description
XD A shadowy aura's energy cuts everyone's HP by half.
