The Shadow type (Japanese 影タイプ Kage-taipu) is a fanon Pokemon type introduced in Pokemon Fatestar. The type is based on Shadow Pokemon from Pokemon Colesseum.
Shadow-type Pokemon resemble nocturnal or subterranean creatures, as their preferred battlefield is the darkness. They have the power to control darkness and shadows. They are also considered the stealthiest Pokemon since in their element, their attacks are nearly unforeseeable.
Unlike the Dark type which represents crime or malevolence (hence why it's called "Evil-type" in Japan) or the Ghost type that represents spirits and souls, the Shadow type is purely elemental, similarly to the Fire or Water types. Despite this, people still fear Shadow-types because of their unpredictability.
As of Pokemon Fatestar, excluding Mega Evolutions, there are only 4 Pokemon with the Shadow type, making it the rarest type in the game.
