Hey guys PuppyDog here and this has been a big thing bugging me. I am debating getting a shiny Garchomp because when I got a shiny Crobat thinking it was a light gray I was crushed to find out it was a hot pink as my friends laughed and laughed . So guys I could realy use what color is shiny Garchomp Because if I put in all this effort I don't want to be crushed again. Sorry for the kind of idiotic question but if you could understand that I literally don't know this and answer I would appreciate it a lot .


Wow, harsh. Being colourblind must suck.

So as stated above the shiny garchomp is not much different in color it is much duller compared to its regular form its like a "pastel" version the colors are lightened a bit but not much of a change overally duller. In my opinion its not worth the hastle to get a shiny one if its not mega evolving. If it is then it will be in my opinion worth it its hot pink with a lavander base for its body and some bright yellow details. But as you said you were disappointed w the shiny crobat bc it was pink then you would not want a shiny mega garchomp bc its pink and purple but if its not mega evolving its more subdued in color which you may like bc you wanted a grey crobat so overall:
- garchomp regular form (shiny)- pretty much the same but duller lighter colors
- Garchomp mega form (shiny)- body is lavander blades and belly part are bright pink and it has yellow details

Hope it helps your decision!

Thanks for the info guys all my friends trick me now and then so I don't know when they are telling the truth. Now I will begin my hunt for shiny zorua (don't need help there).

it is a disappointing slightly darker blue. however, shiny Mega Garchomp turns into a bold magenta color.

Decent answer. I'd suggest you add sprites to prove the point. If not, may I do so as a separate answer at a later time?

@PuppyDog: You wouldn't mind checking out their sprites to see how much the difference is, in case it's edited in, would you?
