Marshadow (マーシャドー Marshadow) is a creature from the Pokémon franchise.


Marshadow is a Fighting/Ghost-type Mythical Pokémon that debuted in Generation VII, and is categorized within the Pokédex at #802 as the "Gloomdweller Pokémon". Whenever it attacks, it briefly transforms into its Zenith form, a green-gray version of itself.

Spectral Thief, Marshadow's signature move, is a physical Ghost-type move with 90 power and 100% accuracy which steals the opponent's positive stat changes before dealing damage. The move can be upgraded into the Z-Move Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike if Marshadow holds the Marshadium Z.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]

This Pokémon can hide in the shadows. When it finds its target, it will emerge from the shadows and deal a powerful punch! When there are multiple opponents, it may change its target between punches so you'd better keep an eye out!
