Where It All Started: The Pokemon Colosseum Shadow Pokemon

Unbeknownst to many trainers in Pokemon Go, Shadow Pokemon has been around for many years--it’s just the Pokemon Company decided to not go with the concept for its future games after its emergence. The addition of Shadow Pokemon was first added in Pokemon Colosseum, a GameCube game that was released in Japan in 2003 and a year after on North American shores. There were a total of 48 Shadow Pokemon in Pokemon Colosseum, while its sequel, Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness (released in 2005), had 83 different Shadow Pokemon that players could capture. The creation of Shadow Pokemon was thanks to Cipher, a criminal syndicate. Think of Cipher as Pokemon Colosseum’s version of Team Rocket, but less goofy and more serious.

What is a Pokemon Go Shadow Pokemon?

Shadow Pokemon are Pokemon who have had their hearts corrupted by evil. Since the addition of Pokemon Shadow and Team Rocket members in Pokemon Go, players can capture these Shadow Pokemon only through defeating these members. A player can tell if a Pokemon is of the Shadow variant when they have a red-eyed expression with a purple aura floating through their body.

Is the Shadow Tag Pokemon Ability Related to Shadow Pokemon?

It’s easy to mistake a Pokemon that has the hidden ability called “Shadow Tag” to also be a part of the Shadow Pokemon category. Unfortunately, they are not related to one another. Shadow Tag is merely an ability of mainly Psychic and Ghost-type Pokemon that was introduced in the third generation of Pokemon. Wynaut and its evolved form, Wobbuffet, has Shadow Tag as their signature ability. Shadow Tag prevents adjacent opponents from fleeing from battle or switching out with another Pokemon (during a trainer battle) should there be a Pokemon that has this ability out in the field.

Is Marowak: The Shadow Bone Pokemon A Shadow Pokemon?

Compared to the normal Marowak, an Alolan Marowak is a Fire and Ghost-type Pokemon that uses a fire-lit bone to bash enemies. While it does resemble the Shadow Pokemon that trainers would often see in Pokemon Go because of its color, it is not a Shadow Pokemon, to begin with. Contrary to popular belief, its move, Shadow Bone, is simply a Ghost-type move that’s exclusive to the Alolan Marowak.

A Shadow Pokemon List: The Best of the Best

There’s a lot that goes into being the best Pokemon. They have to have the right set of moves, speed, types, and strength to be able to even be considered as one of the best; but that doesn’t mean that they’re automatically unbeatable. Even the best fall down, after all. Shadow Pokemon is not only one of the hardest to catch in Pokemon Go, but they on the same playing field as Shiny Pokemon. Keep in mind that not every Shadow Pokemon is powerful right off the bat; some of them even have low statistics. With the amount of Shadow Pokemon being introduced in Pokemon Go, trainers have to know which ones are the best and worth keeping.

  1. Shadow Mewtwo

    It’s no question that Mewtwo is one of the strongest Pokemon to have ever existed. Even without being a Shadow version, Mewtwo packs a punch and can easily demolish other Pokemon with just a flick of its wrist. Now, imagine if it were a Shadow Mewtwo. Shadow Pokemon, in general, gets a 1.2x Attack bonus in Pokemon Raids and PvP situations. This is followed by a 20% increase in their Attack. It’s worth noting that this applies to all Shadow Pokemon, not just Mewtwo. Shadow Mewtwo is much stronger compared to its normal form, making it one of the best Shadow Pokemon to catch in Pokemon Go.

  2. Shadow Machamp

    Despite being a fairly accessible Pokemon in comparison to the other Shadow Pokemon that are available for capture in Pokemon Go, Shadow Machamp is perhaps the most versatile out of all of them. This is because Shadow Machamp is a perfect fit for the three Leagues in Pokemon Go. Not to mention, Shadow Machamp is perfect for PvE situations. For PvP, however, it’s better to use Shadow Mewtwo or other Shadow Pokemon that perform well in those types of circumstances.
