How about that pink butterfree? Would that be considered shiny because its not the same shiny color as the games. Same with Sudowoodoo
No HellDoom. They are just different to tell them apart. Like Ash's Meltan. People thought it was shiny when in reality since there was such a big group of the same pokemon they needed to be able to tell the special one apart. This is also why they gave the butterfree a pink colour. Renaming it the valentines butterfree. And this is also why Ash's butterfree had that scarf. It is all just so that we could tell them apart from the others. I hope I helped!!
