C\D Perfect IV pokemon should be shiny

I seem to recall in one of the earlier generations this was ho wit was done... and I think that it would be a pretty good way of doing it. Not only would this enable you to know when you encountered a perfect specimen, but it would also make shiney status relevent.

In Gen 2 it wasn't exactly IVs, but something similar. And they didn't need to be perfect to determine whether or not it was shiny, but in Gen 2. Shiny pokemon were usually stronger than non shiny pokemon.

TC you have your information wrong, though Shiny Pokemon in Generation II were determined by that generation's version of IVs "DVs", Shiny Pokemon didn't have perfect DVs.

DVs maxed at 15.

Here are the values for Shiny Pokemon in gen II:

Attack: 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 14 or 15
Defense: 10
Special: 10
Speed: 10

Due to the HP DV being determined by the other four DVs, a Shiny Pokémon's HP DV can only be 0 or 8.

Some details from this page (they incorrectly refer to DVs as IVs):

Update: The odds of getting a valid shiny combination in generation II was 1/8,192 (seem familiar?).

Deny.

Most of the alternate colourations aren't worth it in my opinion.

Forgot to mention, no way would this happen.

The odds of finding a perfect Pokemon are about 1/1,073,741,824 see the problem?

People complain enough about the current 1/8,192 chance of a Shiny. Do you want to start a riot?!

Instead of making them auto-shiny, give them a higher chance of being shiny.

Except that TC wasn't suggesting this be on top of the current system, but replace it, or so it seems.

There is only one way that line can make sense.

With the odds of getting a perfect Pokemon extremely worse than the current Shiny odds, this would only lead to rage.
