You will receive Platinum’s only copy of TM65 Shadow Claw from Fantina, the Gym Leader in Hearthome City. She will award it to you, along with the Relic Badge, as prizes for defeating her in battle.
Shadow Claw is a Ghost-type physical attack. It has a fairly high base power rating, as well as a high critical-hit ratio.
TM65 Shadow Claw Location
To get TM65 Shadow Claw, you must defeat Gym Leader Fantina in Hearthome City.
Fantina uses Ghost-type Pokémon, which can be tricky to battle due to their multiple type immunities, as well as the lack of available Pokémon at this stage in the game that Ghost-type Pokémon are weak against.
Bring healing items and Pokémon with levels in the mid-20s. A Normal-type Pokémon that knows non-Normal moves can be helpful, due to the Normal-type immunity to Ghost-type moves.
Tip: You can find more in-depth information on the Hearthome Gym Puzzle and how to win against Leader Fantina in our complete battle guide.
Once you have defeated her, Fantina will award you the Relic Badge, and then hand you TM65 Shadow Claw.
