From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Shadow Hold (Japanese: ダークホールド Dark Hold) 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 Hold is a Shadow version of Spider Web, Mean Look, and Block.
|| This move effect may be in need of research. |
Reason: Does the effect of Shadow Hold wear off if the user switches out or faints?
You can discuss this on the talk page.
Shadow Hold targets both opponents and prevents the targets from switching out.
As Shadow Pokémon cannot be traded, and since Pokémon Contests do not exist in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, Shadow Hold cannot be used in Contests.
|| The opponent Pokémon cannot escape.
