Introduced Insurgence

Dark Nova is a damage-dealing Dark-type move exclusive to Pokémon Insurgence. It is the Burst Attack of Shadow Mewtwo.


Dark Nova inflicts damage, hitting the target twice per use.

Dark Nova compares the user's Attack and Special Attack stats, dealing damage to the target using the higher stat. If the user's Attack is greater than its Special Attack, the move will be a physical move; if its Special Attack is equal to or greater than its Attack, it will remain a special move.

Like other Burst Attacks, this move can only be used when Shadow Mewtwo is in Burst Mode. This move can only be used once during a single Burst Mode duration, however they can be used again upon exiting and then reentering Burst Mode. Additionally, the moves Counter, Mirror Coat, and Metal Burst cannot act in response to Burst Attacks.


Type Description
Battle Uses Synergy Burst to unleash dark energy in two waves. Damage is done using the higher attack stat.
