Shadowflares units with same one's digit in level.
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance description
Level ? Shadowflare, also known as LV? S-Flare, is a recurring spell in the series. It is generally a spell used by Dark elemental enemies, but can also be used by the player. When used, all units, both enemy and ally that has the same second digit in their level as the caster will be attacked with Dark-elemental magic (this also includes the caster as well). For example, a unit at Level 47 will attack units at Level 47, 37, 27, 17, and 7.
A Bone Plate is highly recommended if the unit wishes to use LV? S-Flare and not be affected negatively by it; in fact, the unit will recover health. Otherwise, LV? S-Flare is quite a risky move, dealing medium-heavy damage if not equipped adequately. Thus, this spell should only be used if at high-level, adequate equipment, or equipped with Bone Plate.
