An example of a shadow Pokémon with its dark aura visible.

Shadow Pokémon are Pokémon whose hearts were corrupted and locked behind several "doors" keeping the light from their heart from shining through. Constant care and battle are needed to unlock the doors to the Pokémon's heart. After all the doors are unlocked the player can then purify the Pokémon using the Relic Stone in Agate Village or the Purification Chamber in the Pokémon HQ Lab.


Cipher created each Shadow Pokémon from his lab located close to the center of the Orre region. In the lab, Ein tried to perfect the formula for a Pokémon that was not afraid to attack other trainers. Once he found out that each Pokémon's heart could be locked away, he used this to create the Shadow Pokémon, perfecting his formula. However, due to the amount of corruption flowing from the Pokémon, it is possible to tell the difference between a normal "Pure" Pokémon and a "Shadow Pokémon". Only certain eyes can catch the strange, dark aura coming from them.

XD001 or Shadow Lugia

The Strongest Shadow Pokémon

The "strongest" Shadow Pokémon is usually considered to be Shadow Lugia, given the code name XD001. Lugia, already being the strongest Pokémon ever captured by Cipher, it was turned into a Shadow Pokémon and was said to not be able to be purified. But by having the Purification Chamber at high power, Michael was able the purify the Pokémon.
