Talk:List of alternately colored Pokémon in the anime

Should I move this to "List of alternate colored Pokémon in the anime"? That way, Pink Butterfree could be included. --CuboneKing 18:05, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Agreed. It should be moved. We have many other Pokémon that should be mentioned. Like the Orange Island Pokémon. --ケンジガール 03:09, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Why is this suggested to be moved over to shiny pokemon in the anime? EVERY SINGLE POKÉMON IN THE ORANGE ISLAND ARC WAS ALTERNATELY COLORED NOT SHINY. Just sounds like a stupid idea. Zxcvbnm370 (talk) 17:05, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Who suggested a move back to "List of shiny Pokémon in the anime" and WHY? Changing it to the Split template so it actually makes sense*. -EVsandIVsaurs 14:15, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

Pikachu-colored Pichu

Isn't it considered to be in the anime, even appering only in and ending sequence? -- RikkiKitsune 00:36, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Technically. Throw it in. TTEchidna 00:51, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Shiny Magneton

Does the shiny Magneton picture really need to be PNG. Turtwig A Contributions Talk 13:16, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Yes, it does. -Sketch 19:32, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
And that doesn't mean resave the same image in PNG format either. Find the episode and do it properly. —darklordtrom 00:14, 1 October 2009 (UTC)


Why is everyone forgetting the Lapras from EP113? That was Ash's Lapras mother, IIRC. --Maxim 11:15, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

Probably because Lapras's mother is not the same coloration as the game's alternate coloration standards. The game's standards have alternate-coloration Lapras as being purple.
On the flip side of the coin, keep in mind that the episode in question, while very late in the Orange Islands arc (late enough in said arc to be part of season 3 in the dub, despite what Bulbapedia's warped standards on seasons, as well as more recent popular belief, imply; the theme song defines an arc, not a season), is still a Generation I-era episode, hence the game's alternate-coloration standards wouldn't apply to it. Hence it could technically qualify as a slight color variation, given that this IS the Orange Islands after all...
My : Let the war room look this over and make a judgment, then allow time for it to be implemented properly. It just might turn out in your favor (I'd go ahead and say the odds favor you). --Shiningpikablu252 16:27, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
Huh... but Pink Butterfree, Crystal Onix and others are listed. -- RikkiKitsune 20:59, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
How different did it look? I don't remember it being that much, or I'd actually remember myself. Also, Pikablu, 4Kids may have ordered the episodes together, but hey, they're the company that called this thing ( ) an Arcanine. Repeatedly. TTEchidna 21:27, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
It is in lighter color then regular Lapras, as seen in the picture on EP113's article. I think it should me added. -- RikkiKitsune 21:11, 11 November 2009 (UTC)


I think this page should be protected until July 10, just out of cautiousness until it is confirmed for sure whether or not the Legendary Beasts in the Zoroark movie actually are shiny. --The Great Butler 07:10, 2 July 2010 (UTC)


Can we at least sort the anime-exclusive colorations from the true shinies? - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 21:34, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

It's a wiki, go for it. I got there first. —darklordtrom 10:32, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Crystal Onix's Type

Just added Lapras's mother to the list. This page show the Crystal Onix as a Rock/Ground type. While regular Onix are this type, the Crystal Onix is clearly a completely different type (like Wormadam for example), due to its immunity to Water type Attacks & weakness to Fire type attacks, and also the fact that it is not made of rock, but rather crystal or glass. Its type is clearly not Rock but since Crystal is not a type (except in the TCG) it needs be changed to the ??? type or ???/Ground.Vuvuzela2010 14:30, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

I don't think that's necessary; the only indication of type on the page is the template colors, and the ??? color is in my opinion, nasty looking. --AndyPKMN 15:40, 6 October 2010 (UTC)


What about the Golden sudowoodo in episode AG173? - unsigned comment from Gliscorguy54 (talkcontribs)

Dubious. It was a normal Sudowoodo turned gold by artificial means, and then turned back. —darklordtrom 07:15, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
So that Red Gyarados wasn't evolved through artificial means? How interesting. —Raptor39 01:47, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Still I think it should be mentioned Mr.Char 00:00, 1 March 2011 (UTC)


What about the watermelon-colored Electrode in AG041? --ShadowLugiaEx 20:53, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

I think that one was just painted in disguise, though I may be wrong. Vuvuzela2010 21:03, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
  how about the mysterious exploding watermelon at the end of movie 12, the one with Arceus in it, it appears when team Rocket picks it up after the credits.


Doesn't Kodai's Mismagius count as Alternately colored because of those long extensions on its' body?

I've looked up Kodai's Mismagius and see no difference between it or any other Mismagius. You'll need to provide a pic or something. XVuvuzela2010X 23:37, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Aw crap you're right. Sorry I just haven't seen a Mismagius in a long time so I forgot what they look like. Mr.Char 23:55, 28 February 2011 (UTC)


Shouldn't we add Lisa Mitchum's Jigglypuff and Little Pink as "Non-standard alternate coloration"? Mr.Char 23:41, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

I don't see why not, though you should probably add that it is most likely to differ other Jigglypuff from the main anime one.. XVuvuzela2010X 23:04, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

But how do you upload images? I don't know how! Can someone please tell me how? Please? Mr.Char 23:41, 2 March 2011 (UTC) Oh, never mind I see someone already added it. Mr.Char 23:43, 2 March 2011 (UTC)


How about we create a separate page for the actual shinies, and leave this page to deal with the anime-exclusive alternate colored stuff? The shiny section of this page would consist of "Main article: List of Shiny Pokémon in the anime" or something like that. If this is acceptible, I could get going on this right now. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 23:03, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

I think it's fine as is. --ケンジガール 04:39, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Yeah i think thats quite a good idea Kybett98 15:08, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Pink switch removal

I don't agree with the removal of the switch for the Pink Pokemon. Yes, the current image depicts some of the Pokemon listed, but the switch helps show the rest. And it is a much better solution than listing each Pink Pokemon individually. It works for the Valencian Pokemon, so I don't see why it can't be the same for the Pink Pokemon. XVuvuzela2010X 20:59, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

Pikachu-colored Pichu?

Pikachu-colored Pichu is male, how do we know?Prinben 20:03, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

It's a male in the games, but it's never confirmed in the anime. Removed. Vuvuzela2010 20:12, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
I see no reason why its gender would be different from the games' PCP. I mean, the PCP that cameoed in the Anime is clearly a reference to the games' one, which is male. Why would they go through the trouble changing its gender? It seems pointless to me, considering it's just a cameo and it never appeared in the show itself. - Ericss 04:59, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Baby Kangaskhan

I was not sure whether to post this but baby Kangaskhans are the color of a adult shiny Kangaskhans so do you reckon that baby Kangaskhan would be counted as shiny because so far its still classed as a Kangaskhan. Kybett98 01:22, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

What most likely happens is that the color changes as it ages. Something like an animal shedding its skin. Ataro 01:51, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Yes that is a possibility but perhaps it should be added because its only a possibility Kybett98 15:09, 4 January 2012 (UTC)


I dont think Dwebble belongs on this page since the Dwebble is not actually alternately colored. But i feel like people should know about his other rocks perhaps a page called something like "Rocks Dwebbles inhabit" or something like that. Kybett98 15:17, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Green Weedle

Maybe it was a Caterpie? --Abcboy (talk) 04:49, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

It's clearly a Weedle.--ForceFire 05:00, 5 November 2012 (UTC)


In Season 3 or Episode 150, "No Big Woop", there is a Wooper with a heart on its chest. I wouldn't have said that this counted as alternately coloured until I saw that there was a Spinda in the list for having a heart symbol on it's face. I just thought I'd point this out, rather than change the page itself. Cheers. Brad.ellison (talk) 18:26, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

I've added it to the page. XVuvuzela2010X 01:49, 23 January 2013 (UTC)


I was wondering, does Spinda really belong here? I thought the whole point of Spinda was that they all had different markings due to ashfall, so couldn't one conceivably have a heart-shaped mark on its forehead due to ashfall?--Bardock 08:30, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Reddy/Purple Kecleon

"Kecleon is capable of changing its body colors at will to blend in with its surroundings. There is one exception - this Pokémon can't change the zigzag pattern on its belly." Reddy's zigzag pattern remains the correct color, and thus, this is not a case of an alternately colored Pokémon, but of an inherent ability of the species. I could see this arguably being relevant on the Color Change page, but why is it here? EpicDeino (talk) 11:37, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

Red/Corrupted Zygarde 50% (Z2)

Is it right to add it now, as the episode has aired... The legendary PkmnTrainerV is Here! (talk) 14:35, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Golden Shell Kabuto

In the episode "Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon", there appears to be a golden shelled Kabuto, but in the next scene it doesn't have a golden shell.



Does Nidoran from AG015 count as shiny?--Rocket Grunt 14:52, 7 March 2021 (UTC)
