Vaporeon is a character from the Pokémon series of video and card games. In the video games, the shiny variant of Vaporeon is an alternate coloration that can occur under certain circumstances.
The shiny Vaporeon does not have any special abilities; it is simply a different color than the standard Vaporeon (purple instead of the usual blue). Vaporeon is evolved from the Pokémon Eevee. Evolution can occur in Pokémon games beginning with Generation II and later, with the exception of Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Colosseum and Black and White. Circumstances for Eevee to evolve into a shiny Vaporeon vary by game.
