Shadow Pokémon can be returned to normal through the process of Purifying. This will return its look to normal and unlock the darkness in its heart. This is done with a cost of Stardust and Candy. The costs vary depending on species

1km Buddy Pokémon: 1,000 Stardust & 1 Candy
Starters & Standard: 3,000 Stardust & 3 Candy
10km Buddy Pokémon: 5,000 Stardust & 5 Candy

A purified Pokémon gains multiple levels up to Level 25, gain slight gains in its IVs of +2 per stat, and has a special boost by having a reduction in the amount of Stardust and Candy required to power it up: 10% on Candy and 20% on Stardust. It also has the move Return.
