Shadow Pokemon are enigmatic Pokémon that Team GO Rocket Grunts and Leaders abandon after losing a battle. They differ from regular Pokémon by having a burning grandiloquent air, glowing red eyes, and a more menacing expression. Shadow Pokémon can be cured by purifying them with Stardust and Candy to come Purified Pokémon. All captured Shadow Pokémon will have the attack Frustration. This point is only available to Coaches with a position of 8 or advanced.
Obtaining a Shadow Pokemon
To gain Shadow Pokémon, Trainer must master any member of Team GO Rocket( including Grunts, Leaders, or Giovanni) and complete a Deliverance Shadow Pokémon challenge, which is analogous to the perk Challenge in Raid Battles.
When trying to capture Shadow Pokémon, they attack far more constantly than usual, making them extremely delicate to catch. This is where a Nanab Berry can come in handy. likewise, while Shadow Pokémon constantly have a deep orange or indeed red ring( indeed for common, low- position Pokémon), this appears to be deceptive, as the prisoner rate isn’t as low as the prisoner circle implies.
Shiny Shadow Pokémon can be captured after battles with Leaders or Jessie and James.
