Two answers:

9 or 4,294,967,296

9 is only in Pokémon Go, so that's the joke answer.

But for the main series games, the pattern variations are calculated by Personality Values, which is a 32bit number, which is why the odds of finding two exactly alike Spinda is 1 in 4,294,967,296.

That one just doubles the existing 4b by including Shiny variants, so idk if it counts or not.
This answer is technically correct, though there are millions of patterns within that total that are visually identical. More information on Bulbapedia: https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Spinda_(Pok%C3%A9mon)#Trivia
