Name Basis

Shadow and Sunny are the only two of their family not to be named after their type. Shadow is not named after Shadow the Hedgehog, Shadow from Final Fantasy VI, Shadow from American Gods, or any other character that shares the name. Shadow also is not, and has never been, a Shadow Pokémon, though he was once mistaken for one by Jenna.


Shadow is calm and focused in any situation. In contrast to his youngest brother Sunny, he is cynical instead of idealistic. His usual response to any unusual situation is to simply go along with it. While he does have a considerable amount of aptitude, he rarely does anything with it and is fine with being a servant or understudy.

Abilities in Battle

Shadow's possession of the ability Evolution Memories, which allows him to use the attacks of other Eeveelutions, makes him potentially the single most powerful and versatile Pokémon on Forte's team. However, he does have combat abilities of his own as well. He mainly uses special attacks.

Before he started on his journey, Forte decided that he wanted to have a full team of all seven Eeveelutions. He decided to breed Icicle with his parents' Ditto to make this team. Shadow was the first Eevee hatched this way. Shadow had originally decided to evolve into an Umbreon and Sunny to an Espeon, hence their names. However, they both ended up changing their minds and picking the opposite.


  • Is the second in command of Team Glacier.
  • Is the official pilot and repairmon of the Icicle Crash, due to him being the only one to read the manual.
  • Once saved Mezzo, Every, Forte, Onion, and Pianis' lives by telekinetically catching a Wailord-sized rock and throwing it back.
  • Taught the rest of his family how to read.
  • Translated Pokémon speech to Forte until Forte was armbanded.
  • Has a surprisingly good singing voice. Once captured the attention of Spinda's Café with a performance of "This Machine".


Shadow is the oldest of Icicle's six children.

In the AU

Shadow is an Umbreon in the AU. After Forte died, he and Sunny were found by Mezzo. Shadow ended up as Mezzo's secretary and advisor in her army. He escaped with Sunny shortly before Black City was invaded by Napoleon, and the two went on to join the resistance.


  • Shadow first appeared in the Alternate Timeline Arc, one arc before Forte or any of his other mons did.
  • Fortis calls Shadow "Pinkie" after a character in My Little Blitzle. This is for two reasons: one, he is pink, and two, she thinks Shadow is a stupid name.
  • Shadow's ears are very sensitive, and he does not like having them touched, particularly after seeing one of his ears get cut off in the J-Team TV Show.
  • Shadow is the only member of Team Glacier that is not Ice type.
  • Shadow plays Protoss in StellarCreation, since they're the Psychic faction.
  • Shadow seems to become more powerful when insane. Alternatively, more power seems to drive him insane.
  • Shadow's singing impresses Diesel, and he has been offered to join Diesel's band. He is still considering the offer.
