Performing this action is actually very simple, just open the list of Pokémon we have captured, select a Shadow and paying a cost of 2 Candies e 2000 Stardustwe can purify it.

I Purified Pokémon they will change their loaded move to Return, which we will not be able to remove even with the use of MT and they will get a +2 bonus in the IVs of each of their stats, as well as reaching level 25.


Another advantage they have access to is the halving of the amount of Stardust and Candy required for the Upgrade, similar to the Lucky Pokémon.
