What Color is Shiny Yamask?

The shiny version of Yamask has a dark blue/purple body, yellow eyes, and is holding a silver mask.

This makes it appear very different to the standard version of Yamask, which is black, has red eyes, and is carrying a golden mask.

The most obvious sign that a Yamask you encounter is the shiny version is the mask. This is because it’s easy to tell apart the standard Yamask’s gold mask and the silver mask of the shiny.
