Shadow Shed (Japanese: ダークリムーブ Dark Remove) 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 Shed removes the effects of Safeguard, Reflect, and Light Screen from the battle. It affects both parties.

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


Games Description
XD A shadowy aura eliminates Reflect and similar moves.
