And the Charizard can't be shiny, I hear? Glad I got my shiny Jolly Gmax already. >.<

Edit: It seems this only applies to promoted 5 Star Charizard raids, at the time of writing.

In the site, it says ''Shiny Rate: Standard''. I think this is the first time they mention that and I am not sure what they mean by ''Standard''?

I just saw the site too, it's saying only the 5 Stars Charizard raids are Shiny Locked. Damn you Gamefreak, what are you planning??

Are they testing methods to restrict shiny hunting on events due to the higher catch rates? By locking 5* so people can only get the "lesser" versions?

I'm guessin' they're going to do something like this with Melmetal, and yeah, they may be testing it.

For example, they'll do a Promotional Raid line where only Melmetal will be be 5 Star Dens—like Mewtwo was, but he'll be catchable. However, like 5 Star Charizards now, the Melmetal will NEVER be a shiny.

Just a theory, of course, and I really hope I'm wrong. I want my shiny Melmetal without having to fly to Japan..
