Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Why does the shiny butterfree look different that it's first appearance?

I'm referring to the pink-bodied Butterfree that Ash's Butterfree tried to woo in the episode where Ash released it. For the longest time I thought that was the shiny Butterfee actually looked like. Looking at the shiny Butterfree, it has pink wings, pink arms and legs, and a pink mouth. Yet not the body itself.

If that wasn't the intention of Game Freak, then Why is that? Or was the intention to make the pink-bodied Butterfree look like a girl one?

Sometimes Pokemon in the anime are different colors than the ones in the game. For example there was a golden sudowoodo in the anime but its shiny for is more of a green color.
