Welcome to our ‘Pokémon Go: How To Catch Shadow Pokémon?’ guide. Team Rocket’s newest update to Pokémon Go includes Shadow Pokémon. These monsters aren’t special, but they’ve surrendered to fury and evil to help their Team Rocket trainers. When you cleanse these creatures from their shadows, their Frustration move turns into Return, which causes more damage the more the Pokémon loves you. But because Pokémon Go lacks Pokémon friendliness factors, they both do the same.
Pokémon Go: Catching a Shadow Pokémon
To capture a Shadow Pokémon, you must visit a Team Rocket-controlled Pokéstop. If you defeat the grunt, you’ll be able to capture their Shadow Pokémon. When catching your first Shadow Pokémon, you could only obtain 4 or 5 Premiere Balls. In addition, you earn a ball for each Pokémon you have left after beating the Grunt.
Other sources of Premiere Balls include Hero and Purifier. These are always reported as +0 balls at the start of the battle. Two medals with the same names. To get the Bronze Hero medal, you must beat 10 Grunts. Purifying 5 Shadow Pokémon earns the Bronze Purifier award. Both should be natural. As you progress in these medals, you’ll receive additional Shadow Pokémon balls.
- Shadow Pokémon are purified by pressing the button on their data screen.
- Purifying costs dust and candy, but it’s easy.
- Purified Pokémon need less sugar and dust to evolve. Return is a normal-type attack.
- Return is fine on normal-type Pokémon but not great on others and can be replaced.
- PURIFYING POKEMON GET IV BOOSTS W Purification increases each stat by two, thus a Shadow Pokémon with 13 Attack, Defense, and Stamina becomes a 100% IV Pokémon.
