The point is basically to say, "Hey, look at me! I'm cheating so you know you can't beat me!"

All Pokemon can be Shiny.There are just some shiny ones that cannot be obtained legally.
In most generations there are a few Pokémon that cannot be obtained Shiny without cheating or glitches, due to either being distribution-exclusive without an in-game location or, in Generation V, being programmed so that they cannot be Shiny in the wild.

To add to you guy's answers, it's also to make people stop wasting their time SR'ing* for a shiny legendary.

Also, Victini is distribution-exclusive, so they just wanted to make sure everybody got one and nobody was dumb enough to keep SR'ing until the event was over, not getting a shiny, therefore not getting one at all.

^ They should do that to every event Pokemon that has a case similar to Victini.
