Long Story Short, some time ago I traded a few 2-3IV dittos for Cobalion, Virizion and Terrakion. Nowadays, I'm working on filing my pokedex, and because Dittos weren't making the cut (They are not lv 30 because I used them to breed) I went ahead and traded Cobalion for Zapdos.

And I got a Timid Shiny Zapdos with perfect IVs sans atk and def with Hidden Power Ice and the Kalos mark that proves it wasn't traded from previous generations.

Is that even possible? I mean, is not like I really care if it's legit or not because it helps with the pokedex and I could even use him in my doubles team if I wanted (If only Lightning Rod was legal on Zapdos...). But can that happen? Is it possible for a Kalos Zapdos to be Shiny?

None of the legendaries you can catch in XY can be shiny.

If you get a wild shiny Kalos native legendary, it's hacked.

No, they can't. If it doesn't appear shiny the first time you encounter it in the wild, then SR won't do anything.
