Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, released in Japan as Pokémon Ekkusudī Yami no Kaze Dāku Rugia (ポケモンXD 闇の旋風ダーク・ルギア), is the second role-playing game from Nintendo's Pokémon franchise for the Nintendo GameCube. It is the successor of the Gamecube game Pokémon Colosseum, and takes place in Orre, the setting of Pokémon Colosseum. All of the Game Boy Advance Pokémon games can connect to this game through trading and Battle Mode.
Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness will load successfully on MAC OS X however during the opening cutscene where XD001 is about to use Shadow Blast on the S.S. Libra the emulator crashes. In addition, when the battle between Greevil's henchman and Zook starts, the game crashes, although this is not specifically related to MACs. Furthermore the game crashes when you try to leave the building to try and save Professor Krane.
 Delayed Sound with OpenAL
When using OpenAL sound, it can take upwards of 30 seconds for the audio to play. Changing the latency has no effect but does cause lag at lower values. This can be fixed by changing to DSound or XAudio2, at which point the audio plays immediately.
This game doesn't need non-default settings to run properly. If you want to get an overview about settings related to performance, please see the performance guide. A full list of config options is available at Template:Config/doc

|Windows 7 x64||Intel Core i3-370M @ 2.4GHz||AMD Radeon HD 6370M||Playable: Full speed for main part of the game. Some major graphical glitches during battle, which can cause big slowdowns depending on the attack being used. Cut scenes have sound issues, sometimes to the point of having no sound at all.|
|Windows 7 x64||Intel Core i5-3400 @ 3.1GHz||nVidia GeForce GTS 450||Playable. Game has encountered no crashes as of now, though graphical and sound glitches plague the game (distorted elements, effects, etc. and sometimes music cuts out - using HLE). Rating should be reduced to **** (Playable) instead of ***** (Perfect)|
|Windows 7 x86||AMD Athlon II X2 250 @ 3GHz||AMD 760G||Playable. Had to disable DualCore, having it enable caused the game to crash.
