Shadow Pokémon are victims of criminals who use them for misdeeds. They must be taken from their bad masters and protected. The most effective means of taking such Pokémon from criminals is the Snag System developed by Cipherfive years ago. It is an unforgivable act among Trainers to steal another Trainer's Pokémon, but there is no other way to save Shadow Pokémon. The Snag System was originally designed to steal any Pokémon from Trainers. We must immediately develop a system that snags only Shadow Pokémon...and nothing else.
It is impossible for ordinary people to distinguish Shadow Pokémon from regular Pokémon based on appearance. In developing a new Snag System, our biggest challenge was devising some means of recognizing Shadow Pokémon immediately. We solved this challenge with a headset device that senses Shadow Pokémon. We named this headset the Aura Reader.
The Aura Reader's development made it possible to create a workable new Snag Machine. We realized that we could integrate the Aura Reader with the original Snag Machine developed by Ciper. The Aura Reader can be made to sound a warning and prevent the Snag Machine from working if a regular, non-Shadow Pokémon is targeted. The likelihood of the Snag Machine being abused should be diminished. However, one must always be vigilant. It must be treated with caution!
Once captured, Shadow Pokémon must have their hearts reopened in a process called purification so that they may return to their normal state. The best-known method of purification was to have the Shadow Pokémon spend time with a Trainer and allow their hearts to gradually reopen. However, because it required Shadow Pokémon to be with the Trainer, this method placed a limit on the number of Pokémon that could be treated. We needed a process for efficiently purifying many Shadow Pokémon. Our studies led us to the idea of the Purify Chamber.
The Purify Chamber is a radical new concept that differs from the usual purification method of having Shadow Pokémon be with a Trainer constantly. It represents a new approach that places Shadow Pokémon among regular Pokémon so that they become purified naturally. Much time is still needed to make this concept real. We need to acquire systems, collect data, and make adjustments. We eagerly look forward to seeing the Purify Chamber concept in operation.
