Gameplay differences between Shadow and non-Shadow Pokémon
The Trainer of a Shadow Pokémon cannot do any of the following with it until it is purified:
* Level it up (when it is purified, it gains all the exp. accumulated as a Shadow Pokémon).
* Gain [[Effort Values]] from battling ([[Vitamins]] can still be used on a Shadow Pokémon).
* Evolve it (evolves when gaining exp.)
* Use a [[Rare Candy]] on it.
* Enter it in battles at [[Phenac Stadium]].
* Enter it in battles at [[Orre Colosseum]].
Shadow Pokémon also are unable to gain [[Effort Values]] from battling, although [[vitamins]] can still be used on them.
