I mean, who really doesn't want this type back?


Shadow type is the Master Race.

Even in xd it didn't work like it was supposed to. If it's se against every type it should be quad se for dual types unless they're shadow pokemon, the shadow mons themselves also lacked stab on shadow moves and I'm still not clear on whether shadow moves were supposed to be physical or special not that it matters post gen 4

Bring them back.

Get rid of the stupid Honey Trees and the Stupid Hidden Grottos and make Shadow Pokémon strays you can find that's all wild and gone bad that you need to purify

So super hard to find just so you can't tell what abilities it got, what nature it got, and what's the stats then to purify it to be a normal Pokémon still in the end?

No thank you.

Yes but keep them separate from the main Pokemon games. Make another entry in the Colloseum/XD saga.

They weren't super-effective against every type, they were super-effective against every non-Shaow Pokemon. If it was "every type", then dualtype Shadows would be weak to Shadow moves.

the shadow mons themselves also lacked stab on shadow moves


So?

It depended on the move. Yes, even though the game was third-gen.

How about no? XD closed up the Shadow Pokémon storyline for good (Cipher's dead without Greevil, and there's nowhere left to go with the concept after Shadow Lugia).
