Pokemon GO Shiny Oddish
According to the official Pokemon GO Twitter account, trainers can expect to see quite a few shiny Oddish starting at 10 p.m. on Oct. 2. This marks the first time this alternately colored Pokemon has appeared in the game along with its evolution family.
Shiny Oddish is a wild green color that completely covers its entire body. With this coloring, it's easy to mistake it for a shrub or patch of grass. It's evolution follow the same suit, being mostly green with accents here and there. For example, Gloom and Vileplume's bodies are green, but their leaves and pods are bright orange. Surprisingly, Bellossom is actually purple.
