Blue metallic X koi pair

What would be the outcome...found a female I liked that would match up good to male except colorXD. So if I did get said female and bred to my import koi what would be the outcome?

I hear that certain koi are not actually marbles but operate around a different set of genes.
What does your koi look like? 1 color, 2, or 3?
What colors does your metallic possess? Black/blond, blue/green/steel, red/orange/yellow? All these things will influence your progeny.

If your koi is just a marble, then I would expect multicolored marbles.
But if your koi is a true koi type, you might get a mostly multicolored (non-marbles) and a few koi (apparently the genes are partial dominant)

But this is all guess work. I would encourage you to find out personally and I'm interested in the outcomes myself--I've never seen anyone attempt this cross, and I would like to incorporate koi patterns into my project, if it is possible.

He's 2 or 3 depending on how to would consider it... Black orange and white, female I haven't bought yet but I am seriously looking at. She is more of a turquoise metallic

White, meaning dragon scale white or cellophane? If the latter, you might end up with all blue bettas with various red and black washes. Reason being is that blue is completely absent in the male while completely covering the female. There could be a chance that the koi pattern will dominate and the blue might show up only on the black. Again, all guess work. Please do this cross.

Hmm sounds like a good try for me. I also found a purple dragonscale I liked and I have another male that is a purple orange pink multi ( I think not sure what to call) woul this be a good pair ?
Here's a picture of him
And a picture of the koi :)

Nice! So you got that one! That fleck of blue on the male might play an interesting role, shows that he has blue after all.

Have no idea what multis will produce since I am not familiar with their layer composition.

The girls got here today:D... But the blue female has red wash.She didn't have it in the video. Could this be part of being stressed or did I luck out and her get the red after I got her
