I wish Game Freak did not Shiny Lock Legendaries these days. I want to be able to soft reset for a Shiny Tapu Fini. :)
Probably because they're saving those shinies for event giveaways, making the shinies more valuable instead of something you can soft reset for.

... but that's just conjecture, really.

Whilst it could be argued that making Shiny Legendary Pokemon event only more valuable wouldn't it conversely make them less valuable.

For example instead of only a few people having a Shiny Tapu Koko through luck/soft resetting a host of people now have one (or more) Shiny Tapu Koko making the Shiny remarkably common.

Well, yes and no.

You're basically right; legendary shinies from event giveaways become less valuable because they become common, but don't forget that these giveaways are limited in time and there are people that miss out for various reasons. Because of the time-limited nature of these events, as well as the fact that no one knows if it'll ever happen again, those legendary shinies still retain their value for the most part.

It is still different; considering the ones you received from events are in Cherish Balls, have a Ribbon that prevent trading on Wonder Trade and GTS etc.

Although event Pokemon ends up all being just trophies to me in the boxes, I still love receiving them.

So is this both NA and European?
We are unsure at this time if this extends to Europe as well. Be sure to stick around as we get more details in. 8)

I think it's the opposite, at least in the trade scene. When you SR or RNG ingame, you need to watch out for shininess and IVs, but with events, you just need IVs, which is pretty easy. In addition to that, it's so easy to farm events since you just need to get to the PC for the first time vs farming legends in-game require you to actually play through the game. So basically in the trade scene now everybody and their mom's gonna have a shiny Null wih good IVs, whereas before I feel like I was possibly the only one on PC and one of a few people on other forums with a 5IV shiny Null.

Before anyone mentions Hyper Training, I'm talking about the trading community, where many people value mons that are perfect without HT a lot higher (maybe not here, but still). Even with HT, events still make it easy to get a shiny mon with a certain Hidden Power (see Tapu Koko) whereas his would be a lot harder ingame due to you needing to SR or RNG for both shiniess AND HP not just one (in RNG, shininess + IVs can take ~12+ hrs of waiting ingame, whereas IVs can take 5 minutes). Finally, even WITH Hyper Training, plain shiny Nulls are still worth something to people since they had to work for it, but now they're gonna be worth nothing.

I'll go and grab this guy when he comes out at my local Gamestop. Not sure if I will use him on any teams, but I might.
