From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Shadow Hold (Japanese: ダークホールド Dark Hold) 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 Hold is a Shadow version of Spider Web, Mean Look, and Block. It prevents the target from switching out. It hits both enemy Pokémon in a Double Battle.
As Shadow Pokémon cannot be traded, and since Pokémon Contests do not exist in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, Shadow Hold cannot be used in Contests.
