Pokemon XD Game Guide: All About The Gameplay You Need To Know

Table of Contents

Set 5 years after the events of Pokémon Colosseum’s Story Mode, Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness features the return of the Cipher Organizations and their plans to take over the world with Shadow Pokémon. The game kicks off after the strange disappearance of a cargo ship, and a once-in-a-lifetime Lugia sighting leaves many questions unanswered for the protagonist.

With over 80 Pokémon to collect and over 160 Pokémon in the game, Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness can be considered an excellent Pokémon title for its time. It was at least better than Pokémon Colosseum, which was a flop for the company. However, much like Colosseum, Pokémon XD features similar 3D gameplay of its predecessors and familiar battle mechanics.

This walkthrough will contain spoilers for the game Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. Where possible, this walkthrough will limit discussing key story points and story-specific items.

Pokémon HQ Lab

The outcome of the battle sim does not affect the story or game; it just teaches you how to play. It also shows you that your character has a Lv. 10 Eevee with Tackle, Bite, Tail Whip, and Sand-Attack. When you gain control of your character, take the elevator to the top floor and speak to Professor Krane and your Mother, Lily. She asks you to go find your sister, Jovi.

Go back to your room and pick up the P★DA, which is in the Northeast Corner of the 1st floor. The chest on the floor is where you can claim your P★DA, which is like a Pokédex except it has email functionality. You’ll receive an email from Professor Krane as soon as you receive it. Check it, but before you leave, open the chest at the foot of the bed to receive Potions x3.

If you read Krane’s email, Adon will tell you in the lounge that Jovi is likely playing at Kamiko’s House with her friend Chobin. Adon marks it on your map. Use your scooter to go pick her up.

Before you leave, a scientist will ask you to watch the ONBS news broadcast in the lounge room, where you find out about the missing S.S. Libra cargo ship. Leave the building and walk around the yard. One of the trainers, Aferd, will battle you if you talk to him.

Follow the sidewalk on the left to receive Antidote x2 from the chest at the end of the sidewalk. Now, Select Kamino’s House from the World Map to travel to the spooky house.

Kamiko’s House

When you enter Dr. Kaminko’s manor, you’ll be stopped by Chobin, who thinks you’re a burglar.

Chobin₽1505Sunkern (Grass)Absorb Chlorophyll

After defeating him, he’ll recognize you as Jovi’s sister. Jovi comes out of the house. Follow Chobin and your sister inside as she shows you a bunch of strange inventions. Go through the only unlocked door to speak to Dr. Kaminko and Jovi. You’ll receive an email from Professor Krane when you leave the manor with Jovi, asking you to return to the Lab.

Pokémon HQ Lab

Lily is waiting outside to greet both of you when you return. Jovi leaves to finish her hide-and-seek game with Adon. Lily asks you to find Professor Krane. Go into the Lab into the West Wing’s 2F and speak to the man in a light blue shirt and bucket hat. He informs you Krane has gone downstairs. Return to the first floor to find Krane in the Western-most room.

The Professor has completed the Snag Machine, which catches Shadow Pokémon (Pokémon who are Shadow Pokémon will have an “S.” before the name). He asks you to catch Shadow Pokémon so you can return them to their trainers. Talk to Aiden to receive five Poké Balls. 

After this conversation, a team of mysterious spies come in and kidnap Krane. Leave the Lab, and Nap will challenge you. This will be your first Pokémon battle with a Shadow Pokémon, but you won’t be able to attack. Just throw the Poké Ball at the Teddiursa to capture it.

When you see a Shadow Pokémon your Aura Reader will react. In future battles, you’ll need to weaken a Shadow Pokémon before capturing it. After the battle, the Professor is still captured.

Back at the Lab, Lily states that she’ll continue Krane’s research on the Purify Chamber, then asks you and your sister to pick up a Machine Part from Gateon Port. Aidan will tell you to keep the Snag Machine and also hands you Krane Memo 1 and Krane Memo 2; tutorial items.

Before leaving for Gateon Port, go back to Kamiko’s House for another battle.

At Kamiko’s House, Chobin will stop you again because he thinks you’re a burglar, again.

* Some items can’t be obtained until you continue to unlock the story

Gateon Port

When you get to the Port, you’ll witness a Pokémon battle between two men named Ardos and Zook after Jovi runs into the man with the Zangoose. Although he tried to attack you at first, Mr. Verich and his two bodyguards, Eldes and Ardos, come to your rescue. Argos easily defeats Zook with his Alakazam. After a bit of dialogue, everyone leaves. Now, start walking left.

On the way to the Parts Shop, you meet up with Emili and Acri, Jovi’s friend and Emili’s Mother. Speak to the Sailor when you enter the part shop, and he’ll tell you Makan, the shopkeeper, is at Kaminko’s house. Perr, Makan’s grandson, can assist you. Then, the Sailor offers you one of five evolution stones for your Eevee. Choose the Thunder Stone as Jolteon is the best option.

Leave after claiming the Evolution Item, and you’ll see Perr has finished repairing the bridge. Follow him to the Parts Ship and speak with him to receive the Machine Part you need.

While you can leave for Pokémon HQ Lab, stay to explore the town. First, head towards the North on the dock. Speak to the Sailor and answer “no” to all of his questions for a battle.

After beating him, you’ll receive TM45 (Attract). Then, go towards the rotating bridges, the ones that Perr fixed, and rotate the L-shaped part to reach the house on the tiny island. Speak to the residents who talk about a place with fog and whirlpools (this will be important later). Return to the bridge and cross over to the East and speak to an older man named Cyle for a battle.

With no Shadow Pokémon, Berk is easy to defeat. Use shadow moves, like on your Teddiursa, to take down your opponent with one hit. Once inside the Krabby Club, speak to everyone inside. The Captain in the corner of the room will comment on your Pokémon’s friendship. The chest in the basement will contain a Super Potion. Head for the PokéMart and speak to the Navigator for a Potion. Now, you have access to the PokéMart, but you can’t buy Poké Balls.

When you enter the Lab, Aidan will give you Krane Memos 3, 4, and 5; more tutorial items. Hand over your Machine Part to Lily, who is on the second floor in the West wing, then Jovi will leave you. Lily tells you she still needs to work on the Purify Chamber. In the meantime, you can use the Relic Stone, an artifact you can find in Agate Village, to purify Shadow Pokémon.

Gateon Port

Take a quick trip back to Gateon Port to battle another trainer before going to Agate Village.

Speak to him periodically to receive berries his Taillow finds while exploring. There are over 15 berries you can receive, and they’re all received randomly. Now, take the ramp behind Eagun’s house and speak to Belish for a battle.

Eagun₽120012Pikachu (Electric)Thunderbolt Static

Battle Eagun. Once you win, he’ll let you use the Relic Stone to purify any Shadow Pokémon you catch as long as their Heart Gauge is flashing white. When you purify your Pokémon, they will receive a lot of EXP and new moves. Eagun takes you back to his house, where he tells you to go to Mt. Battle to talk to his friend Vander. After exchanging numbers, head to Mt. Battle.

Mt. Battle

When you enter Mt. Battle, which is actually a Colosseum, speak to Eldes (the one in red), and he’ll welcome you to the mountain and let you through. Open the chest by the reception building for a Full Head. Head inside, and you’ll see two important people: the Move Tutor, who teaches Pokémon forgotten moves, and Move Deleter, who deletes moves you don’t want anymore.

Talk to the girl behind the middle counter and ask about Professor Krane’s and Vander’s whereabouts. Although Mt. Battle is closed, she’ll let you in to find and speak to Vander. 

For the following battles, you can use most of your Pokémon loadout as you’ll likely be 3 levels above the trainers. If you have Espeon, use Confusion for STAB (a 1.5 multiplier applied when a Pokémon uses a move of its type. For example, if Espeon uses a psychic move).

Pokémon HQ Lab

Once you arrive at the Pokémon HQ Lab, you’ll receive a message notifying you that the Purify Chamber is complete. Although you can access the device from any PC, you can only initiate the Purification Ceremony at the Pokémon HQ Lab. Professor Krane will then demonstrate how the machine works. You can wander around and ask people about Cipher or purifying Pokémon.

The next time you speak to Professor Krane, he’ll ask you to talk to Datan about the Data ROM. When you go to his upstairs office, he isn’t there. Instead, he’s outside, walking on the sidewalk. Speak to Datan to learn the data is encrypted. He’ll ask you to go to ONBS headquarters in Pyrite Town to ask Nett for help with the encryption. Go to Pyrite Town.

Then, immediately leave Pyrite Town and go back to Pokémon HQ Lab to battle Aferd.

Inside the Police Station, you’ll find a box with a Hyper Potion. At the hotel, pay 100 to fully heal your Pokémon. You’ll also find Great Balls x3 in the center-right room, Paralyze Heal in the leftmost room, and a Focus Band in the rightmost room. Equip the Focus Band immediately.

Right next to the ONBS building is a vending machine with some high-healing items.

ONBS Building

When you enter the building, Megg, the receptionist, will greet you. Go to the second floor and enter the first room next to the elevator. This is Secc’s office. He’ll tell you Nett is located on the third floor. Before you go, you need to watch a television broadcast on the second floor. 

While in ONBS, you have the option to go to the first floor and take a little girl up to the third floor. You might as well since you’re going in that direction. When you return the girl to her Mother, you’ll receive a Soothe Bell. Then, climb the stairs to the roof and talk to Detro.

Detro will guard the door until Nett tells him to let you through. Enter the penthouse and give Nett the Data ROM. He’ll explain that it will take some time to analyze the disc. Bitt, another ONBS employee, will tell you to see Duking at the Rock PokéSpot. Walk down out of ONBS, and Trudy and Folly will give you a radar after speaking about a transmitter. 

Before you leave, go up by the Colosseum and sneak past the Athlete to get a Great Ball.

When you arrive, Duking is in the middle of being interviewed by Pofty. Duking will demonstrate how to catch wild Pokémon, which is only possible to do in PokéSpots, and then gives you 10 PokéSnacks. Put a few snacks on the center plate to attract wild Pokémon. Once done, Duking will upgrade your P★DA by installing a Spot Monitor. Now, head to Oasis PokéSpot.

After defeating Miror B., Trudly and Folly will follow him and drop the Miror Radar. Pick it up, and you will receive an email from Nett telling you that he hasn’t completed analysis on the Data ROM yet, but that you still need to see him in Pyrite Town to discuss Cipher’s plan. 

The Miror Radar you just picked up will send a notification that looks like his afro when he’s near. This is important because whenever you miss out on catching a Shadow Pokémon, it warps to his team, where you can attempt to catch it again. You also now have a notification that looks like a pie, which tells you if Pokémon are at one of the PokéSpots. Now, head to ONBS.

ONBS Building

When you get to the ONBS Building, the guards will tell you Megg has been kidnapped. Go up and to the right to face multiple Cipher Peons at once. Be sure to heal before you attempt this.

You can’t enter the Colosseum just yet, so head to Phenac City instead.

Phenac City

Back in Phenac City, Cipher has taken over. Before going into the city proper, take a right and go behind the building to find x3 Ultra Ball. On the left side of the Pre Gym, above the PokéMart, are two Hyper Potions. In the house East of the Pre Gym, you can heal your Pokémon and pick up a Music Disc. Head right to the Mayor’s house where the secretary will speak to you.

Give the secretary the Music Disc, then go upstairs. Pick up the Mayor’s Note by the bed. As you’re reading it, the secretary will reveal herself to be Cipher Peon Exinn and battles you.

Note: The Hexagon Brothers can be fought infinitely back at Cipher Lab if you need experience.

Now, try to head toward ONBS. Unfortunately, your scooter will get stuck in the sand. When you appear back in Phenac, one of the citizens will explain the desert sand is too deep for you to traverse it. After this, Nett will tell you to visit Pyrite to speak with a missing Pokémon owner.

Chobin finally agrees you aren’t a burglar. Dr. Kamino scraps the Robo Groudon project, but Chobin asks to keep it. Dr. Kamino agrees. Chobin takes your P★DA number. Enter the house.

When you enter the home, you’ll see a room with colored hooks. Put the hooks in this order:

Orange, Green, Pink, Cyan.

You’ll be directly near the Battle CD 05. Pick it up. Take the purple hook. You can read Jovi’s Diary if you wish. Take the purple hook back, then take the blue, yellow, and red hook. Leave.

Go down to the basement. Pick up the Rare Candy, then speak to Makan. He agrees to upgrade your scooter after you tell him what you know about Cipher. Then, you’ll warp to Gateon Port.

Gateon Port

When you get to Gateon Port, Makan will upgrade your scooter. Now you can travel through deep sand. If you want, head back to Kaminko’s House to fight Chobin again with his Robo Groudon team and to pick up Battle CD 11 and 23. Then, go to the S.S. Libra.

S.S. Libra

When you get to the S.S. Libra, enter the hole in the side of the ship. Justy will message you and tell you that the Pre Gym is open. After reading your email, you’ll see a crate of Pokémon food. Push it up a tile and climb up the stairs after going down the path. Climb another set of stairs to the next room, where you’ll see Gorigan and two Cipher Peons. Only one will battle you.

A Worker will approach you after the battle to tell you he uses the S.S. Libra as his house. He’ll take you with him to his bedroom where you can heal your Pokémon. He’ll ask you to discover what’s making the weird noise. When you leave, pick up Battle CD 18, then go up the stairs.

When you reach the top of this set of stairs, push the box one tile to the right. Run up top and jump in the gap above the box. Push the box down one square. Go across the path to open a box with x2 PP Up. Drop into the hole by the item and push the box up two tiles. Run up top and get the Fire Stone. Drop down to go down the stairs to the bottom floor, then run to the top and drop off.

Push the box down to escape, then push it up to complete your bridge. When you cross the path, get the Max Ether, then drop down. Push the box up to complete the other bridge.

Cross the bridge to exit. Move the boxes to get up the stairs. Beside the stairs, you’ll find TM35 (Flamethrower), then move the box in front of the stairs all the way over to the right. Move the boxes until they line up with the item box and staircase. Get the Yellow Flute. Go upstairs.

Sneak up behind Bonsly, but before you catch him, you’ll get an email from Acri who wants to interview you for a story. Bonsly will leave Leftovers. Pick it up, then go get the Luxury Ball at the bottom right. Go back to the Worker to tell him Bonsly was making that noise.

The Worker will tell you to go check PokéSpots to find Bonsly. Pick up the Iron near the first-floor exit, as it’s much easier to get now. When you leave the S.S. Libra, Team Snagem will use Gloom to put you to sleep. They’ll steal the Snap Machine. You wake up in the Workers bed.

The Worker will tell you the location of the Cipher Key Lair. Head to the PokéSpots first.


It’s a good idea to use Poké Snacks to lure out Bonsly. When he is eventually lured out, sneak up on him. He’ll run away, then come back to you. After capturing him, you’ll be transported to the ONBS building in Pyrite Town. After handing over Bonsly, the Old Man will give you the Bonsly Card to use at Battle Bingo in Realgam Tower. Go to the Pre Gym in Phenac City.

Phenac City – Pre Gym

The first time you enter, Justy will notice your Snag Machine is missing and will be shocked that Team Snagem is still around. Leave Pre Gym, then go back in to battle 4 trainers before Justy.

Pokemon XD Game Guide: FAQs

Question: What does XD stand for in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness?

Answer: Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness uses the “XD” abbreviation in its name. “XD” stands for “Extra Dimension,” except the “Extra” is spelled like “Xtra.” “XD” also stands for XD001, which is the code name for Shadow Lugia, the Pokémon you find on the game case.

Question: Is Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness better than Colosseum?

Answer: Although Pokémon Colosseum comes before Gale of Darkness and features many of the same characters as both games, critics agree that Gale of Darkness is far superior. PokémoN XD fixed many of the problems found in Colosseum like the linear adventure, lack of side content, and poor level scaling. Plus, Gale of Darkness has a better storyline. 

Question: Can Shadow Lugia be shiny in Pokémon XD Gale of Darkness?

Answer: Yes, Shadow Lugia can be shiny. However, it requires a lot of trial and error for him to appear this way. Be sure to save directly before you fight Greevil. Then, enter the battle. If he doesn’t appear shiny, turn the game on and off. You have a 1 in 450 chance for this to happen.
