Shadow Ball is a Ghost-type move introduced in Generation II that has a 10% chance to lower the opponent's special defense by two levels. When using it, a Pokémon creates a dark purple ball in front of its mouth (not all Pokémon). Then the shadowy ball is fired at the opponent.

Several Pokémon can learn Shadow Ball, and all Ghost Type Pokémon can learn it.
