Shadow Chill (Japanese: ダークフリーズ Dark Freeze) 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 Articuno.


Shadow Chill is a Shadow version of Ice Beam. It deals damage and has a 10% chance of freezing the target.

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


Games Description
XD A shadowy ice attack that may freeze.
