Features

The Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness story begins 5 years after the events of Pokémon Colosseum with the introduction of the player as the main protagonist to Professor Krane, the player's character's mother's boss. Krane introduces the concept of Shadow Pokémon, which are Pokémon whose hearts have been artificially closed. The criminal syndicate Cipher is creating and distributing them for their evil purposes. Krane also introduces the Snag Machine, which is used to capture Shadow Pokémon in order to purify them. Krane places the players in charge of the Snag Machine to capture these Shadow Pokémon. Players are given the Aura Reader (the eye piece) to identify them from normal pokémon. The player also goes out to save Krane when he is kidnapped and to uncover and defeat the Cipher syndicate. This game features two Sinnoh related Pokémon species from the Diamond and Pearl generation introduced in Pokémon: Destiny Deoxys, both of which evolve into previous species. They are Munchlax, which evolves into Snorlax, and Bonsly, which evolves into Sudowoodo. These characters cannot be obtained in the advanced series titles, although players can temporarily use Bonsly during one minigame. This marks the first and only time that Pokémon from a later generation have appeared in a game during the previous generation.
