No Confirmed Shiny Pokemon

After hundreds of cumulative hours between our walkthrough staff, there doesn't appear to be any shiny Pokemon that can be found in New Pokemon Snap. We'll make sure to update this page if anything changes, but for now it seems that the only variations in color are ones for Pokemon who already have multiple forms.

Color and Gender Variations are Available

Vivillon's Patterns
Meadow Pattern Sandstorm Pattern

Some Pokemon, such as Vivillon, have several forms that can be seen when embarking on a research expedition. For example, you can find it in its Meadow Pattern at the Park and its Sandstorm Pattern at the Sands.
