    I can confirm that this does NOT need to be done in 1 go.

    I rarely beat more than 3 in a row, but I was keeping track and it popped immediately after my 25th total victory! :)

    jimmyclutchmanHas anyone unlocked the achievement without it showing wins for your shadow? I just won 20 shadow survival matches in a row and it showed no wins

    TGB70I just unlocked this today. I played thru the shadow lab. I did not save my shadow data at all. I played till I lost then started again. Unlocked at exactly 25 wins (they were not in one sitting either).

    Other guide missed multiple important clarifications, so let me try, 5 years late :)

    Most important is to choose the right Shadow Survival. There are two ways to do it, but one is glitched and will NOT unlock achievement.

    CORRECT: Single Player > Fight > Shadow Lab> Select your shadow > Shadow Survival
    INCORRECT - DO NOT USE: Single Player > Fight > Survival > Shadow Survival

    - You must defeat 25 shadows total. Thankfully, these do not have to be consecutive, or in the same session
    - Your shadow will not record any wins or loses, so don't worry about this
    - If you get a download shadow error, say yes once and no the second time seems to fix it most times, YMMV
    - Whether you save your recording or not is irrelevant for this achievement. If you save, you can stack with 'higher learning', or can skip saving if you want to keep your shadow as is, or save a few clicks
