The term "Color Swing" is used to describe a pet whose colors are not exactly matching the expected result. Color Swing can affect pets created by the Generator, dyed with Pet Dyes, and even Themed Pets.

As of Fall 2014, the color swing in tamed Themed Pets was drastically reduced. Pets caught after the change usually show much less color swing than pets caught prior to it. As such, several old themed pets can have wildly different colors than other pets of the same theme..

Color Swing in Themed Pets Edit

Themed Pets are also affected by color swing. Even exclusive themes can have slight variations in their color hexes. However, exclusive pets have color swing similar to Mystical Essences, so it's rarely noticeable. This section focuses on tamed themed pets, which before Fall of 2014 had color swings similar to those of regular essences.
