"Easy"? I'd say it's becoming a little fairer. Methods to get a shiny Pokémon are ridiculously easy already - especially with RNG abuse, and other forms of cheating/circumvention, so throwing a few method to make them easier to get isn't hurting.
It's not like they haven't already lost their value.
