I'm fully aware that Mystery Gifts in Gen IV cannot be shiny unless they are programmed to be always shiny. Is this still true in Gen V? I've checked a number of sources and gotten some conflicting info, so I'd just like to get this clarified.
gen 5 has a setting to prevent shininiess, allow shininess, or set shininess. some of the more recent cards have no shiny prevention on them.
Which ones? The Event database doesn't appear to distinguish this.
Yes it does. The cards which do not have shiny prevention and cards that are set as shiny are noted.
Entries that have nothing mentioned cannot be shiny.

"Now that I've had my coffee..."
Oh, my bad, I was only looking at the English Gen V events. It looks like the only Gen V events that can either be shiny or not shiny are Japanese so far.
so far, yeah.
