WOW not even the US yet????

lucky bastards in australia and europe >:(
That was exactly what I was thinking as well. While my region did get this event, I was surprised that the US didn't.

Edit: Oh wait, this event is now live in North America as well!

A free Shiny is always nice and Shiny Tapu Koko does have a great colour scheme. It's a shame Legendary Pokemon are Shiny locked these days but that's a discussion for another time.

Now we need an Ash Hat Pikachu distribution.

When you think about it, the legendaries being shiny-locked was likely done for cutscene purposes.

But past gens still had sprite cutscenes and legendaries were able to be shiny?

Anyway, totally going to RNG one with HP Fire and one with HP Ice, then RNG a save file so that I can nickname them whatever I want :3

I realllyyy hope we (as in the world, I'm cool with just Japan) get the other shiny Tapus, but I'm not sure of the likelihood.

5th Gen was the first generation to have 3D-rendered cutscenes, and considering how complex they would have been to make, you can see why that generation started the tradition of shiny-locked legendaries in-game.

But I don't see why. It's essentially the same thing. The model doesn't have to look the same, they established that in earlier games. The model for cutscene and model for battle are not connected at all. The cutscene and overworld happens then the game generates a new legendary when the player presses A at a certain point then the game pulls up the model for battles. Completely separate.

I don't really remember properly, but were there even cutscenes for Tapus other than Koko?

edit: There's no excuse, really, because shiny starters are also possible in this game.

I don't really play S/M anymore, but I went and got this just now, it might be useful in the future. Can't (legally) get a shiny Koko anywhere else either right now, so there's that too. Very fortunate that the nature is always Timid, made it easy to SR for a Hidden Power Ice one (It's nice to get the HP type I want for once)....even came with 31 Speed IVs too.
