No A shiny pokemon is all the same to as a regular pokemon. Its stats are exactly the same in every way. The only diffrence is the shiny form is alot more rarer to find so consider yourself very lucky if you find one:)

Yea but I noticed in black/white the special sound when a shiny is taken out has a recovering sound too.
Oh well aside frome the appealing effects shiny pokemon are no stronger then non shiny
Heres a link explaing more about shiny pokemon. Its worth taking a look.

Ok. The difference between shinies and normal pokemon are that shiny pokemon have a different color sometimes its cool like charizard and sometimes they are *************** like crobat or heracross.
In older games (i believe in Gen1,2) and the anime they actually were stronger. BUT now they arent. The only plus(+) they have its that they are extremely hard to find, so if you got one you are lucky.
