* Due to the way that Generation II Shininess and gender are determined, it is impossible to have a Shiny {{cat|Pokémon with a gender ratio of seven males to one female}} that is female in those games, as the highest Attack IV a female Pokémon with a gender ratio of seven males to one female can have is 1, while the lowest Attack IV a Shiny Pokémon can have is 2.
* Prior to Generation V, Shininess in canonically unique Pokémon such as {{p|Mewtwo}} created plotholes when the Pokédex displayed the normally colored version.
