    What I'm going to change about the Shadow leveling (and Light, as well) is that they can level, but with each level, they are more likely to disobey the trainer. Kind of like a traded Pokémon. Eventually, it will reach a certain point where the trainer will have to purify the Pokémon, because they would be literally unable to command it. Perhaps they'd even inflict minor damage to the other Pokémon in the team, but I don't know about that yet.

    And when their hearts are unlocked, Shadow Pokémon become normal again. You also have to 'unlock the hearts' of Light Pokémon, and they become normal as well.

    it refers to how well they will be purified, the goal is to have 4 pokemon who have a type advatage against the next, while having a type disadvantage to the previous, depending on how it is set up the (I believe) tempo gets higher, while if there are 4 the flow is the highest

    the numbers refer to the chambers available, there are 9 - meaning a total of 9 shadow pokemon will be able to be purified at a time
