The Pokémon Company have revealed the newest addition to the 700+ Pokémon roster. Marshadow is known as the Gloomdweller Pokémon, and is the very first with the unique dual typing of Fighting and Ghost. Marshadow’s moves and abilities have been teased out, but there are no details on when or how Marshadow will be added yet.
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.
Marshadow has the Technician Ability, which powers up any moves of 60 or less a solid 50%.
Marshadow has several unique qualities, including an exclusive move, a unique Z-Move, and a special visual effect that turns its body partially green when attacking with full power.
The exclusive move is Spectral Thief. It allows Marshadow to steal any stat boosts from its opponent and then attack.
Marshadow’s signature Z-Move is Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike. The special Z-Move has a unique animation where Marshadow attacks from its trainer’s shadow with a barrage of ghostly punches.
To unleash the Z-Move Marshadow must have Spectral Thief learned and hold the Marshadium Z-Crystal. As a post-launch addition that Z-Crystal cannot be obtained in-game. It will most likely be attached to Marshadow similar to how Munchlax came with Snorlium Z when Pokémon Sun and Moon launched.
Details on how and when to obtain Marshadow have not yet been announced. Based on previous post-launch Pokémon it will most likely be a limited time download code obtained either online or through GameStop.
