Shiny Misdreavus

Misdreavus is a Ghost-Type Pokemon that can stand up against Bug-Type, Normal-Type, Poison-Type and Fighting-type Pokemon. The Pokemon is able to learn Ghost-Type and Dark-Type moves that are super-effective against the same Dark-Type or Ghost-Type Pokemon

If you face Misdreavus in a raid battle then it is advised to use Tyranitar with the movesets Bite and Crunch. If you do own Tyranitar then good backups are Houndoom, Mewtwo, Gengar, Absol, Rayquaza. Any of the Pokemon mentioned should provide you with an advantage over Msidreavus.

The shiny version Misdreavus looks more like a grass-type Pokemon with its new olive tone. Check out the difference between the shiny and non-shiny versions below.
