A Shiny Growlithe is an alternately colored version of the Fire type Pokémon, Growlithe. The normal Growlithe has a deep orange body, black stripes, and cream colored fur accents. In contrast, the Shiny Growlithe has a bright yellow body, black stripes, and cream colored fur accents.
The only difference between a Shiny Pokémon and the Normal version is the coloration; the type, skills, and abilities of each Pokémon remains the same whether they are Normal or Shiny. Shiny Pokémon can be encountered in the wild and are recognizable by a unique sound and animated stars that will appear around them. An un-evolved Shiny remains Shiny through any future evolutions it makes.
