The Pokémon Company has recently revealed a brand new legendary Pokémon for event distribution. Marshadow, a mysterious legendary Pokémon, makes its official debut into Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon this summer.

Marshadow, the Gloomdweller Pokémon, is the first Pokémon to ever combine the Fighting type and Ghost type together. It’s a peculiar type combination that sounds strange within what’s possible in the Pokémon universe.

According to the lore behind it, Marshadow conceals itself within the shadows and never appears in front of humans. As a result, its existence has been considered as a mere myth. This creature will sink into the shadows of others, and is able to copy their moves and power.

Marshadow has a number of unique abilities that you’ll notice in battle. At full power, it will shine green from its burning fighting spirit. Its signature move, Spectral Thief, can turn a pinch into a comeback. Using Spectral Thief will allow you to “steal” the stat boosts its target has, and then deal powerful physical damage back. Lastly, with Spectral Thief and Marshadium-Z equipped, it can utilize its powerful Z-Move, Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike.

At a later date, the Pokémon Company will provide further details about how they will distribute Marshadow to trainers. Until then, stay tuned.
