| Secret Sword|
しんぴのつるぎ Sword of Mystery
Secret Sword inflicts physical damage. Despite being classified as a special move, this move calculates damage using the user's Special Attack and the opponent's Defense stat (similar to Psyshock and Psystrike).
Despite targeting the opponent's Defense stat, the move's damage is unaffected by Reflect and it will not activate Counter or Shell Trap; instead, it is affected by Light Screen and activates Mirror Coat.
By Move Tutor
In Pokémon Black and White, Keldeo can learn the move through tutoring when the remaining Swords of Justice are also in the party. When the four are brought to the Moor of Icirrus, the trio will teach Keldeo the move.
