{{main|List of alternately colored Pokémon in the anime}}
Although the games had not premiered alternate colored Pokémon until Generation II, several Pokémon seen beforehand were colored differently. One such example is the [[pink Butterfree]], the mate of [[Ash's Butterfree]], which appeared as early as [[EP021|the twenty-first episode]]. This is, however, not the standard alternate coloration for a {{p|Butterfree}}, and therefore may not be counted as a Shiny Pokémon. Likewise, the first appearance of a {{cat|Generation III Pokémon}} in ''[[EP205|The Kecleon Caper]]'' featured a non-standard alternate colored Pokémon, this time a purple {{p|Kecleon}}. Another example would be in [[SM058]], where a non-standard alternate colored {{p|Mareanie}} (who happens to be [[James's Mareanie]]'s first love) appears, and later evolves into a {{p|Toxapex}}.
In the [[Orange Archipelago]], certain Pokémon have a different coloration because the climate is different than that of the mainland. For example, a Butterfree, instead of the normal white with black markings, would have gold wings with red spots on them. On [[Pinkan Island]] of the Orange Archipelago, all of the Pokémon are colored pink because the [[Pinkan Berry|Pinkan Berries]] they eat make them that way.
