Shadow Blast (Japanese: ダークブラスト Dark Blast) 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. It is the signature move of Shadow Lugia.


Shadow Blast is a Shadow version of Aeroblast. It deals damage and has an increased critical hit ratio.

As Shadow Pokémon cannot be traded, and since Pokémon Contests do not exist in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, Shadow Blast cannot be used in Contests.


Games Description
XD A wicked blade of air is formed using a shadowy aura.
