    I was wondering if it would be possible for a pokemon to experience a slight change in coloring relating to age. For example in young/newly hatched reptiles the skin is often darker and fades over time and in humans and other mammals hair or fur can fade in color over time.

    Therefore I propose a similar shift might occur in pokemon of a certain age (either very young or very old) that might result in a slight alteration of their colors, although they would stay much the same color, that could result in the skin becoming a darker or lighter shade over time.

    Provided that the shift is not too dramatic, such as a normally orange-skinned pokemon becoming a red-skinned one, would it be possible for a pokemon to change it's colorations significantly for biological reasons not related to the "shiny" gene?

    For example could I create an elderly arcanine with lighter orange fur then normal, fading to white at the edges like in humans, without requiring a shiny ticket for different coloration as it wouldn't be a complete shift in color?

    I'd be all right with that. Again, as long as it's not too drastic of a shift. Admins?

    There is also Nightfall's Blaziken, that is so old his feathers are dull and kind of darker. He didn't need a shiny did he?

    Agreed with Lugia.
