Secret Sword (Japanese: しんぴのつるぎ Sword of Mystery) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation V. It is the signature move of Keldeo.
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.
| The user cuts with its long horn. The odd power contained in the horn does physical damage to the target.
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.
In Pokémon Black and White 2, it can be learned in Pledge Grove, where learning the move causes Keldeo to change to its Resolute Form.
In Pokémon X and Y, a Move Tutor in Snowbelle City can teach Keldeo Secret Sword, allowing it to change to its Resolute Form.
In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Move Tutor is located in Mauville City.
In Pokémon Sun and Moon, the Move Tutor can be found in the Hano Grand Resort.
