Known as the Gloomdweller Pokémon, the Mythical Pokémon Marshadow conceals itself in the shadows. It never appears before humans, so its very existence is the stuff of myth. Marshadow sinks into the shadows of others, and is able to copy their movements and power.

Marshadow is a very cautious Pokémon. It sinks into shadows and observes what is going on around it in such a way that no one else will notice it. This may be the reason why is so rarely seen.

Among the numerous Pokémon discovered to date, Marshadow is remarkably the first to combine Fighting type and Ghost type. Even regarding its types, Marshadow is an extremely rare Pokémon. Fighting-type Pokémon are usually ill-suited in battle against Psychic-type Pokémon, but now you’ll be able to take advantage of Marshadow’s Ghost type to battle effectively!


Apparently, Marshadow behaves in special ways when it comes to using moves. When it uses moves, particularly signature moves like Spectral Thief, it will turn green. Spectral Thief steals an opponent’s stat boosts, then attacks. The Marshadium Z Z-Crystal turns Spectral Thief into the Soul Stealing 7-Star Strike Z-Move. In this move, Marshadow starts out in the trainer’s shadow, then leaps out to pummel enemies. 


Pokémon Sun and Moon are available for the Nintendo 3DS. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will come to the Nintendo 3DS on November 17, 2017.
