How to purify dark Pokémon
When we face a dark Pokémon we only have 5 Honor Balls to capture them. If we are lucky, to purify them we will have to invest several Candies of the budding species together with a cost of about 3,000 Stardust (or more). Also, a characteristic of the Dark Pokémon is that once they are purified they learn Frustration and raise their IVs by 2 (IV calculator here). Finally, purified Pokémon have their level cap increased to 25, and the cost of candy to boost or evolve them is decreased by 10%. Dark Pokémon Considerations:
They cannot learn Charged-type event moves.
They cannot be exchanged.
They cannot forget Frustration.
To purify a dark Pokémon we must go to the section of our Pokémon bag and pay the cost of Stardust or Candy necessary for each species; varies depending on the Pokémon. You have to touch Purify.
Legendary Pokémon: 20,000 Stardust and 20 Candies.
Other Pokémon: 1,000 / 3,000 / 5,000 Essel Dust and 1/3/5 Candy.
