I think Pokemon who have been made shiny by trade will be banned

I was reading an article on projectpokemon and I know it's an old post but with the whole SV thing being abused and can only be done by methods an unsupported program I got to thinking.

http://projectpokemon.org/wiki/Pokemon_X/Y_3DS_Structure
In the link above they state what information is stored within each .pkm file and I noticed the part where it says "OT Name traded to (updated every time the owner's OT changes)". This got me thinking that the last trainer's (or more for all we know) ID will be stored on the Pokémon. Doesn't that mean they can check and then in turn block Pokémon that have been traded to someone to guarantee a shiny hatch? GF obviously looks down on RNG abuse otherwise why destroy the ability to use it in G6? is SV abuse not the same thing?

what?
like, you know how dozens of shinies were traded even before?
that doesnt make sense.
also, shinies dont give you any advantage, so theres literally no reason to ban them whatsoever.

An external program only checks the data it doesn't touch the data. Not to mention that'd mean Shiny Haunters cannot be traded as they'd be made shiny by trade when evolving into Gengar. Also Eggs are "unknown" so that'd mean you'd have to ban all trade of eggs as well because this can just happen randomly and unplanned.

There is a 0% chance of this happening.

Or it was just a side-effect of the platform-wide RNG implementation. Why reinvent the wheel if the function already exists in the system library?

Wow, this is no doubt one of the dumbest idea I have ever heard, with so many flaws and holes in it that an entire school could fit through it.

Banning shiny in trades makes no sense. I think banning trading eggs is more closer since we already can't trade eggs through GTS & WT.

So your saying there's nothing unwarranted about 3rd party programs to give players an edge?
edit: be cosmetic or not the game does have a economy and shinys are part of it, not to mention the program tells you egg IVs.
