A Shiny Pokémon is a very specific Pokémon with different coloration to what is usual for its particular species. It is one of the many differences that a Pokémon can have.
They were originally called rare in the debug menu from Pokémon Gold and Silver, because they are hard to obtain, Color Pokémon in Pokémon Stadium 2, due to the color change, and are also referred to as Alt. Color in Generation III.
Here is a list of the 20 worst Shiny Pokémon. Since Shiny Pokémon are completely identical to their base forms, this list is not going to be based on any stats, but rather on the looks of the Pokémon in question. It’s basically going to be a list of the 20 worst-looking Shiny Pokémon.

However, it is observed particularly often in the Kanto and Johto regions. It primarily prefers forests as a habitat, but also conditionally accepts high meadows and fields. These Pokémon are very defensive and aggressive.

Seel can also be observed in water that is as cold as -40 degrees. This Pokémon also likes to live on icebergs and swim in ice water.
The colder it is, the more comfortable it feels. It swims happily through cool season which ice floes are floating. Seel then hunts for prey under the icy surface of the Arctic Ocean.

A sailor, who once saw such a Pokémon asleep on an iceberg, mistakenly thought it was a mermaid. This Pokémon can store warmth in its snow-white fur to protect against the cold.
In addition, it is very well camouflaged from predators on the ice, as it visually merges very well with its surroundings. During the day, Jugong sleeps in the shallow depths of the sea; only at night when it is cold does it look for food.
