I heard about the Shiny Zygarde event and it really got me thinking. If you disassemble a shiny Zygarde then will it stay shiny once you reassemble it? Just wondering.

I would assume not, but we won't know for Shure until it comes out
I converted my answer to a comment because I was completely wrong. The event Zygarde has the ability Power Construct which prevents separation. I just tried it with the event Zygarde. It’s the ability, not the ribbon.
That's really a shame. Does it get different IVs as well? I can't imagine it loses shininess when Power Construct activates though...
Yes, everything you know and love about the the Zygarde will be gone if you disassemble it...

Power construct is just Forme change, so it’s still the same Zygarde.
I figured that would be the case. Wow, that's bull****
You know what else that means? No shiny Zygarde doggo.
Once you add enough cells to change the ability to Power Construct, you can change its base form for free, so you will be able to get a shiny Zygarde-10 with Power Construct, but not one with Aura Break (only the 50 form can have that ability while shiny).
Rip shiny doggo
Does that make it the only Pokémon that can lose its shininess?
Tbh Shiny Zygarde looks like my toothpaste, so I wouldn't mind having it lose its shinyness.
In my opinion, the toothpaste color actually looks good on zygarde.
bulbasaur_ggd, no, it acts as if you release a Zygarde and then catch a new one, it doesn't alter the Zygarde in any terms accept when you change it's ability or form.
You can just save before you try it if you are still worried.
Ok, that might work.

The event Zygarde cannot be separated. Why? It's because of its ability, power construct. If you try to separate the event Zygarde, the game will say: "The cells are bound together too tightly! It can't be separated!", which would be the same for any other complete Zygarde. But, if you had a shiny Zygarde without power construct, then you could separate it and lose the shininess.

The shiny 100% Forme has the same colors as shiny 50% Zygarde.

Source: I just tried this in Ultra Moon

EDIT: Yay, this is my second answer!

My answer is still partly right then...
So can we get shiny 100% or not???
Yes you would just need more Zygarde cells.
Sorry, I didn't see this answer. But if it's true then, it's worthy for best answer.

The Shiny Zygarde event carries the usual event ribbon, which makes it immune from being sent out on GTS or Wonder Trade. But in Zygarde's case, the ribbon also serves an extra purpose: the disassembly machine will outright refuse to allow you to disassemble a Zygarde that has this event ribbon, so you don't have to worry about accidentally destroying a shiny and only being able to reconstruct a non-shiny after all.

You think?
Although if hou make the zygarde 100% form it wont be shiny
That sounds interesting.
