Reading @RysPicz comments about IV's of shiny rewards for a huge pvp event I'd like to chime in on the subject.
The reasoning behind the current IV distribution for shiny pvp rewards is outdated and stems from a time where the community (and therefor the amount of shinies) was far fewer than nowadays.
With more players and shinies in the market, the impact a perfect IV'd shiny reward is a lot less than it used to be.
The main argument in favor for the sub-optimal IV's was always 'economy'.
Now it's time to adapt to the new state of the economy and realize the amount of rewards contributing to the market are but a drop in an ocean. Especially in their untradeable state.
A perfect IV'd gift shiny reward should become the new standard.
Rarity of those gift shiny rewards would remain a limiting factor to their obtainability, as that's a fair factor.
This feedback is intirely objective as I do not personally gain anything from having it implemented, but I believe in 2019, it's time to improve the rewards.
