Night Shade (Japanese: ナイトヘッド Night Head) is a damage-dealing Ghost-type move introduced in Generation I. It is TM042 in Generation IX. Prior to Generation II, it was the signature move of Gastly's evolutionary line.

Effect

Generation I

Night Shade inflicts damage equal to the user's level.

Although Night Shade is a Ghost-type move, its type does not alter the amount of damage it inflicts. Night Shade is not affected by type immunities, so can hit both Normal-type and Psychic-type Pokémon, both of which have immunities to Ghost-type moves during Generation I.

Generation II onwards

Night Shade is now affected by type immunities; therefore, it cannot usually affect Normal-type Pokémon (but it can affect Psychic-type Pokémon, who are no longer immune to Ghost-type moves).
