Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness (Japanese: ポケモンXD 旋風ダーク・ルギア Pokémon XD: Whirlwind of Darkness, Dark Lugia) is Genius Sonority's second Pokémon game for the Nintendo GameCube. The "XD" in the title stands for "eXtra Dimension."

The game once again takes place in the Orre region, about five years after the events of Pokémon Colosseum. In their second attempt at world domination, the criminal organization Cipher has created a Shadow Lugia, a.k.a "XD001," which they believe is immune to purification.

Generation IV

These Pokémon are not catchable, but they have special roles in the game. The Herbalist's Munchlax will often appear at a Poké Spot and make the hero receive a false alarm that a wild Pokémon has appeared to eat his Poké Snacks. When the hero finds Munchlax, the Herbalist will appear to take it back to her store, and she will offer the hero ten more Poké Snacks for his trouble.

A girl's Bonsly can be found inside the S.S. Libra after it appears in the desert. This Bonsly is apparently a Pokémon that Cipher forgot to take to Cipher Key Lair. After saving Bonsly and taking it to the girl in Pyrite Town, she'll allow the hero to play a special bingo card at Realgam Tower, which features Bonsly as a usable Pokémon.
