Question for Pokemon Crystal

I've heard that shiny Pokemon are stronger, and I've seen posts saying there is no difference.

Do they grow faster, have more special stats, do anything different than normal colored pokemon? (other than being some other color and hard to find) and get

Shiny Pokemon have no statistical advantages over normal colors. They're just rarer.

There is no difference between a regular and a shiny Pokemon whatsoever. Except that shinies glitter in battle and display a diferent color, of course.

Colored are better. Ive derived a formula and I have a shiny butterfree. It is level 10 but the equivalent of an average level 13 guy. Comparitively I also have a normal one at level 50 but it is only the equivalent of a level 41 guy. Normal butterfrees are nearly 20 % worse than average. Colored is 30% better.That means that in this case colored is 1.5 times better than normal.

Ive noticed a similar trend with shiny gyrados but I have yet to test it
