Purifying powered up shadow Pokemon

Hi guys,

Just wondering what happens if I power up a shadow pokemon, then later change my mind and purify it. Does it always end up level 25 (therefore the candy I used to power it up before purifying is lost)?

Thanks

I don’t recall this ever being discussed before so I tried it out…for science!

Yeah, they seem to get bumped to level 25 regardless so any earlier power ups are indeed wasted.

I wish I could “purify” my Mew then, so that it’s back to L25 and at least I could use it for UL. sigh
