A shiny pokemon is a pokemon that is colored differently than a regular one. Shiny pokemon are extremely rare, the chances of encountering one being 8912 to 1.

For example, a regular staraptor looks like this:
![Regular staraptor][1]

And a shiny staraptor looks like this:
![Shiny staraptor][2]

See the difference?
