The term "Shiny Pokémon" is used by fans to describe a Pokémon with alternate colorations. This term came about due to the fact that when a Pokémon with an alternate coloration enters battle, some gleams of light surround the Pokémon. Eventually, the term was used in the Pokémon Black and White game, meaning it was canon in the world of Pokémon. Shiny Pokémon have the same statistics as regular Pokémon. The chances of finding or hatching a Shiny Pokémon change in each generation of Pokémon. As of Pokémon X and Y, there is a 1/4096 of a Pokémon being shiny. Shiny Pokémon evolve into other Shiny Pokémon. For example, a Shiny Bidoof will evolve into a Shiny Bibarel.
