I've seen this question multiple times too but the fact remains that i've seen two possible ways that this could work. They haven't been tested but this is what i came across.
1. catch shadow lugia on POKEMON XD GALE OF DARKNESS send(with a game link) to ruby/sapphire/emerald/fire red/leaf green then migrate to diamond/pearl/platinum/soulsilver/heartgold
2.(this one sounded outrageous to me but I found it as a possibilty) Find a shadow ball in underground of diamond/pearl/platinum bring to rorak who converts it into a usable shadow ball send to soulsilver heartgold and go catch it but it doesn't work like a masterball.(apparently in order to use this you have to use an action replay)
I also came across 2 more:
3. get lugia to hold a griseous orb(held by giratina only)(which leads to my 4th)
4. use pokesav to force it to hold it

I gave my Lugia a griseous orb and nothing happened
Guest said: 28th Dec 2013 | REPORT
I believe you have to trade the lugia with the griseofulvin orb to obtain shadow lugia

If you had: the GBA, Gamecube, GBA-Gamecube connector thing, Gale of Darkness, Pokemon
ruby, DS, Pokemon diamond/pearl, and A friend with a Ds; You can do some serious trading/
migrating to send your Shadow Lugia to Soul Silver.
Send Shadow Lugia from XD Gale of darkness to ruby using connector cable. Then
migrate S.L. from ruby to diamond through Pal park. Re- Catch said Lugia, then trade to
Soul Silver.

Shadow Pokemon cannot be traded, Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness does not allow it to be done, nor does pokemon Colloseum

The only way to get S.L is to find a way to edit Pokemon spirts/ color, then use pokisave to give to yourself,lastly renam it to dark Lugia/ S. Lugia/ whatever

Guest answered:

Hack. Hack a lot That's all I can say. Pokemon XD is programed to not allow trades before all shadow Pokemon had been purified because no other games have the ability to support shadow Pokemon and they're arbitrary code for random attacks with disobediance and the need for a shadow meter. LUGIA IS NO ACCEPTION, so please stop trying to sound smart when you clearly don't understand the game's basic code and are persistant to argue with others for the sake of your small amount of dignity. As for the gentleman asking the original question, I hope you found out a working idea.

well actually all one would need to do in that instance is acquire an ace kard 2i and convert the rom files on their computer to ace kard compatible files to allow for play with your ace kard on the nds it will work. i have actually done the opposite to fix a friends problem with the world ends with you (TWEWY is a great game but the rom had one problem: at the start of the game it would freeze. i simply put the game on my ace kard and played it through a bit and then i pulled that save file and then i converted the save file back to the rom format and now it works) hope other Twewy lovers see this cause it DOES work. so easy. Sad that no one else thought of it!

It is not physically possible to get a "Shadow" Pokemon of any kind in normal games unless you somehow can change the sprite through hacking, if you can plz let me know how. Some roms will let you get one, in Bloody Duiamond all legendaries are shadow.

Now, if you just want a Lugia that wa spurified, you can look online for one, use Pokegen, or just trade it over epicly like the sweet collector/geek/nerd you are.

Oh, btw, it isnt that Giratina is the only one able to hold it, it's that Giratina is the only one able to hold ti with any effect no matter what game. And the Battle Competition might be Mt Battle, where you get SL in XD

You can get shadow Lugia and primal dialga by hacks or action replay codes.

I don't think you can w/o action replay there is a long code but it is a butt-load of typing so if you are lazy leik me just sharpy your screen when you are in battle with your lugia

Probly use pokegen or something like that I think nintendo by accedentaly made a shadow Lugia no matter what it's the same as a regular Lugia.try to waste your time in to doing some thing use full like going to pokegen and get a Mew or some other legendary Pokemon the all have the same sats you're probley just like getting it or unlocking an event in the game like exsample,celebi and meating Geovanni because you probly beat the game and want to play Pokemon but you don't want to replay the same storyline not worth getting a fake or mistaked Pokemon

Well there could be a code for S.L that works you just need the following 1 action replay (I found mine at target) 2 any game ex. Soul silver 3 wild Pokemon modifier code and 4 the code for the dang shadow orb got it

Guest answered:
Added 13th Oct 2012, ID #544376

I'll tell you the code.
"very high encounter rate"
94000130 FFEB0000
"rebattle pok'emon"
94000130 FFF300F9 (F9 at the end of the rebattle code is dark/shadow lugia's dex number)
Use both of these codes at the same time and start your Pokemon soul silver game.
He will be the first wild pok'emon you battle.
(Make sure you have a master ball)

16875387u54324788869043215 That is the action replay code. Once you get it press L And R at the same time. Then go where you caught Lugia originaly. P.S You can only do this after you get all 16 badges and beat The champion.
