The Pokemon Company is currently giving away a shiny Tapu Koko, something I personally feel devalues shiny Pokemon and legendaries in general.
Eh, I somewhat disagree. It takes the fight out of getting them, but it's still a limited event. If you miss the event, a legendary Pokemon becomes scarce, thus retaining a legendary nature
Hasn't it been this way since the first generation?
Not really. Special events that only last a day that you have to physically travel to are very different from scanning a QR code from anywhere at any time.
