The Darkness type (Japanese: Evil) is one of the eleven TCG types. It is represented by the color black, and symbolized by an exaggerated crescent moon.

The Darkness type contains most Dark-type Pokémon found in the main series video games. For example, Bisharp and Sneasel are Darkness types in the TCG.

The Darkness type was introduced in the Neo Genesis set, along with the Metal type, when the Dark- and Steel-types were added upon Pokémon Gold and Silver's release. Prior to this, there were no Darkness type Pokémon.

Like the Metal type, the Darkness type has its own Special Energy, Darkness Energy. This type of energy affects only Darkness type Pokémon and Pokémon with Dark in their names, and allowed an attack that did damage do 10 more damage. There was no basic Darkness Energy card until the Diamond & Pearl set when one was finally released.

The Darkness type can be seen as the "dark" or "evil" type of the game. For example, since the EX series of the TCG, Pokémon with "Dark" in their names and Pokémon belonging to Team Rocket, Aqua, or Magma would be both of their natural type and of the Darkness type. Likewise, the Darkness type is used on a number of Special Energy cards, such as Aqua Energy, Magma Energy, Dark Metal Energy, R Energy and the aforementioned Darkness Energy.
