'''Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンXD {{tt|闇|やみ}}の{{tt|旋風|カゼ}}ダーク・ルギア''', ''Pokémon XD: Whirlwinds of Darkness, Shadow Lugia'') is the title of the new [[Nintendo]] [[GameCube]] game, while the "XD" stands for "eXtra Dimension." The game, developed by [[Genius Sonority]], is reported to be a full RPG similar to that of the [[Game Boy Advance]] games. Not much else is known about the game at the current time aside from the main characters and screenshots that depict [[Pokémon Colosseum]] 3D character models. However the game's setting is known to be [[Orre]], the setting of Pokémon Colosseum's adventure mode.
