What Color is Shiny Reshiram?

The shiny version of Reshiram is white but has gold rings on its neck and tail instead of silver.

This color swap is very subtle, as both versions of Reshiram still have white bodies. However, the golden rings on shiny Reshiram make it a very highly sought-after shiny – as all gold shinies are!
