Like I said, meh, it means little to me. It's no different than the few Japanese shiny 6 IV Impostor Dittos I got via Surprise Trades months ago. It's just par for the course nowadays, so I just roll with it at this point. As long as it doesn't glitch the game like catching Missingno did in Gen 1, then whatever, as it's not like I'm going to use them for battles, anyway. That, I know, crosses the line. I just use them to play experiment with to test some ideas out and other such fun stuff, with the resulting legit babies from said experiments being used in-game exclusively (I don't bother with wifi/internet battles or any sort of special competitions as it's just a breeding ground for all sorts of trouble... plus, I'm a causal, so I'd rather not deal with those hardcore competitive players that often ragequit when things go south for their "perfect" teams). So, hacked or legit, as long as it doesn't glitch the game, I just roll with it, since there isn't much that can be done about it.The thing with the .com is that they're hacked. If you like shinies like that, go ahead!
And speaking of which, got yet another Machamp.com shiny in one last round of Surprise Trades. Was trading HA G-Slowpokes from a sudden impulse to test something in a breeding experiment when I ended up with a shiny Umbreon with all the trimmings from them. Like I said before, I'm not going to use them for anything like battling, as that's wrong. Rather, I simply use their "status" as "perfect" to test ideas for other projects I want to try for in-game purposes. So, as long as it doesn't glitch the game, whatever.
