How to get a shadow pokemon ?
- The event added random encounters with Team GO Rocket. The player has to battle Team GO and defeat them.

Is it a good choice to purify you shadow pokemon?
Purification means that you can cure your shadow pokemon by using a combination of stardust and candy, and thus bring it back to it’s normal form.
Now though ethically it is a very nice thing to do, who doesn’t want to be the saviour. But as a competitive player there are some pros and cons, you should consider before you make a choice.

- The cost for upgrades of purified pokemons is much lower.
- The useless Frustration will be replaced by a new charged attack, Return which can again be easily unlearned if you wish to.
- All their IV stats will be increased by two.
- You’ll receive bonus balls to throw at Team GO encounters.
- The shadow pokemons receive a 1.2x bonus to all of its attacks. You’ll lose this if you purify them.
