Question for Pokemon LeafGreen

You know I beat the elite four and I caught my dog. My legend dog Raikou seems to be orange. Should I get rid of it? Because my friend said it's a glitch and told me
To trade my legend dog to him. But, I also heard that an odd coloured Pokemon means it's 'shiny'. What should I do?

Your Raikou is shiny and that is super rare. Never give it away unless you get a good shiny in return.

I've heard that if you play the game for a long time or for a certain amount of time that the game will glitch and cause Pokemon to change colors. So no, don't trade to your friend, it is a very rare pokemon. Unless you want to get the entire pokedex filled, but if he is your friend, he will trade back with you.

No! Do not get rid of it, your friend is trying to make you get rid of an extremely, super rare Pokemon. It is rare because it is a Legendary Pokemon, but even more rare because it is a shiny pokemon. You are a very lucky person, do not trade it to him.

DO NOT get rid of that Pokemon for anything. It is extremely rare. Therefore meaning it's shiny. Congratulations you are very lucky.

Your friend is trying to rip you off. Getting a 'shiny' is a 1 in 8000 chance so I suggest keeping it! Definiately considering it is Your Legendary Dog.

OK dude. IT is a Raikou the legendary Pokemon that is really cool that you caught it.2nd of all IT IS SHINY
IGNORE YOUR FRIEND!!!!!!!!!!!There is a 0.5% chance that you will get a SHINY a .3% that you will get a shiny legendary pokemon. My advice register it in the Hall Of Fame.
