That's pretty much what I meant, yeah. Another thing I can understand is that at some point they said they wanted legendaries to feel like, well, legendaries, one-of-a-kind Pokémon that simply don't change, in that way it makes sense that shiny locks are a thing. But even then, distributing Shinies of these """"exclusive"""" rare creatures just breaks their own statement.

(Also again about the concept of 'fun', it's completely subjective, most players will give up at getting a shiny after like 20 attempts because they realize it just sucks and yeah, resetting the game thousands of times to see something with a different color isn't exactly enjoyable in itself. Most people that end up finding them just do it alongside other activities when there really is nothing else to do, like, just going on youtube for an afternoon.)
