Can Different Shiny Pokemon of the Same Species be Different Colours?

  • Can Different Shiny Pokemon of the Same Species be Different Colours? Michel

    As it says on Bulbapedia

    "Upon evolution, a Pokémon will retain its Shiny status. A Shiny Charmander, if leveled up, will eventually become a Shiny Charmeleon and then a Shiny Charizard, just as a regular Charmander will become a regular Charmeleon and then a regular Charizard. This is due to the status being determined by values inherent to the Pokémon;"

    So those are the questions:

    1. One kind of Pokemon (Example Charmander) can have 2 colors ? eg: Charmander is red (normal) and his shiny is yellow can another shiny Charmander be black ?
    2. Can a shiny Charmander (yellow) become a black Charmeleon ?


    As said in bulbapedia...

    "Shiny Pokémon in the games may differ in color from their normal counterparts either very little or very much. Usually the former is the case, with some Pokémon, such as Glaceon or Pichu, having their Shiny form be only a few shades lighter or darker in color, although a majority of the Pokémon that exhibit this are not in their final form of evolution. However, many Pokémon will have a spectacular difference between their normal and Shiny variations; even extremely common Pokémon like Caterpie show a dramatic difference."

    So my question (as I said) is about this: "many Pokémon will have a spectacular difference between their normal and Shiny variations". Pokemons CAN be shiny even without change they color like Spiky-eared-Pichu.

    What I have found about this was:

    1. The shiny Charmander in Pokemon wiki is Yellow, while the Charizard is Black.
    2. In the Anime there is a Yellow Magikarp, and a Red Gyarados, the yellow Magikarp appears only in the anime, and it's not a good base of information for the game, but at least give us some extra reference.

    So I guess it is YES for question 2.

    But in question 1 I'am still not sure. Can i have two shiny Charmanders one yellow and another Black ?

  • "Shiny" Pokemon have alternate color palettes, but there is still only a single alternate color palette. At least through the fifth generation, any two shiny pokemon of the same species, gender and forme will appear identical.

    There are no black charmanders, nor is there any rhyme or reason as to the nature of the color swap. Evolution can result in a similarly modified color... or it can result in something entirely different.

  • No. All shiny Pokemon of a specific species will appear identical to each other.

  • If you're asking about the anime then sure. If you're asking about the games then no. The images used for shiny pokemon ingame is prerendered by the artists just as the normal version is, only one image for each. You can catch 100 of the same pokemon in shiny form without any visual differences whatsoever.

  • Each unique Pokémon sprite has exactly one normal palette and one shiny palette. However, some Pokémon have more than one possible sprite, due to gender, variants, or alternate formes. Each of those can have a different shiny palette.

    For example:

    • Frillish♂ is blue, but Frillish♀ is pink. Shiny Frillish♂ is teal, while shiny Frillish♀ is salmon pink.
    • Basculin can appear as red-striped or blue-striped. Shiny red-striped Basculin has an orange stripe, while shiny blue-striped Basculin has a light blue stripe.
    • Shellos found in west Sinnoh are pink, but Shellos found in east Sinnoh are blue. Shiny Shellos are salmon pink in west Sinnoh, and cyan in east Sinnoh.

    Generally speaking, if a Pokémon can be found in multiple different colours, its shinies will have different colours from each other.

    Further, some shiny Pokémon's evolved forms have very different colour schemes, even if the original Pokémon all had the same colour.

    • Shiny Charmander and Charmeleon are yellow, but shiny Charizard is black. (A shiny Charmander will always hatch yellow, and when it evolves to Charizard will always turn black.)
    • Shiny Magikarp is gold, but shiny Gyarados is red.

  • Releasing a pokemon user1306322

    This article on Bulbapedia says that "Released Pokémon cannot be found again in the wild". Does it mean that (a) only the very same pokemon you just released, with all its stats, learned moves and the nickname it had when you released it won't be found anywhere in the game (wild) so that you won't ever be able to encounter it again and re-capture, or (b) does it mean the whole pokemon type will be "blacklisted" from suddenly appearing in the wild to attack you? I haven't ever released a pokemon when I played, so I don't quite understand what that rule means.

  • I've been playing Pokemon Ruby as of late, and once I got past Victory Road, I noticed I was extremely low on money for potions and whatnot, so I looked around for ways to farm some. I read... (What would be the normal reward money without the Amulet Coin.) Does anyone know why this is happening? My only guess would be because I intentionally die on the second Elite Four member, thus it messes up the Amulet Coin because I can't leave once it's started. Is that the case? --EDIT-- I was unaware that the Amulet Coin was supposed to be given to a Pokemon to hold! That being said: Base

  • I was trying to find out when the swarming on a Pokemon outbreak change to another route, but I could only find this information about "soft-reset". But nothing about the time to reset while playing... to parts of Route 8, where Croagunk can be found, becoming frozen during Winter and not allowing the Pokémon to be caught there. All have the level range of 15-55. Unlike previous games, the Pokémon outbreaks can be manipulated by soft resetting the game: turning the console off without saving the game beforehand. When the game is restarted, there will be a different Pokémon swarming." In Black

  • According to Bulbapedia, when you uncover a (!!) bush on the Pokewalker, you can find either a Group B Pokemon or a Group A Pokemon for that route, while a (!!!) bush always gives you a Group A Pokemon. For example, on Yellow Forest a Group B Pokemon are Pikachu with Flail and Pikachu with Volt Tackle, while the Group A Pokemon are Pikachu with Surf and Pikachu with Fly. However, I've caught about six Pikachu now from (!!) bushes and they're all Group B (Pikachu with Volt Tackle). I haven't seen a single (!!!) bush, either. Can a (!!) bush really produce a Group A Pokemon?

  • Is there any reason to keep doing mini-games on Pokémon Dream World after you get over 10000 points. (Beside the games vs the pokemon you want to capture)? When you are in Pokémon Dream World, you get points specially when you do mini-games (20pts each). This is the best way to getter points (at moment 06-03-2011). But after 10000 points you have all Pokémon from Pokemén Dream World ready to be capture, so you need only hope to find one while in the Island of Dreams, beside that, do I need keeping doing the mini-games, or can I stop ? There is some kind of punishment, or you only find old

  • Now I have been searching a while now for an answer to this question. One particularly helpful site was this: LINK However, all this site told me was that: Mann Co. Supply Crates and other usable items drop on a separate timer, meaning that these items do not affect the interval between regular drops. So, I followed a link to this site: LINK However, I looked at the wikia page's contents, but there was nothing stated about the drop rate for crates. I am referring to different types of crates too, not just normal ones. With the new update, Munitions crates #82 and #83 have been

  • Politoed is an evolution from Poliwhirl when traded holding a King's Rock. It is one of Poliwag's final forms, the other being Poliwrath. In Bulbapedia says some moves can only be learned by breeding, and this is my question. When you Breed an evolved Pokemon, you will always get the first evolution. In cases like this (evolution by trade), does it work the same way? If I put 2 Politoeds in day care (male and female), will they produce an egg of Poliwag or Politoed?

  • The wiki page for Statuscolors (and every other resource I can find) shows how to color certain parts of the status line, and gives no information about coloring the rest. Is there any way to color anything else on the status line, and if so, what is the syntax?

  • If I cancel an evolution, can I evolve the same Pokemon later ? I cancelled (for tests) an evolution from Krokorok and now I don't know if I should capture another to get the evolution, or if there is any way to evolve him.
