Shadow End (Japanese: ダークエンド Dark End) 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.


Shadow End is a Shadow version of Double-Edge. Its recoil damage is equal to half the user's current HP (no matter how much damage is done). The user must then wait one turn to recharge before they may move again.

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


Games Description
XD A shadowy aura ram attack that also rebounds on the user.
