In LGPE, you can see the shiny models in the overworld (I just know this because I caught my first ever random encounter shiny yesterday!). It's a very good question because of the double system. Will you see the overworld spawns' shininess but not the hidden grass encounters'? The same goes for the auras for IVs etc., I guess. If so, it'll be easier to shiny or IV hunt some Pokémon than others?Putting the Charizard thing aside for now, something interesting came to mind.
How will these games portray shinies in the wild? Due to the whole overworld encounter thing, will it take a page from LGPE and have the shiny Mons glimmer or however it was portrayed? Or will we actually see the Mon in its shiny form in the overworld? Considering that we already know that Mons with "special" traits like high IVs and/or Egg Moves will have a yellow aura, will that mean that shinies will also get similar treatment to help identify them from their normal brethren? That's something I'd like to know, since it could end up changing how shiny hunting is executed from this point forward.
