Shadow Mist (Japanese: ダークミスト Dark Mist) 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 Mist is a Shadow version of Sweet Scent.


Shadow Mist lowers the evasion of both opponents by two stages.

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


Games Description
XD A shadowy aura sharply cuts the foe's evasiveness.
