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.

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.

EDIT: Yay, this is my second answer!

The event Zygarde comes with Aura Break, not Power Construct.
Uhhh mine didn’t? Mine has power construct.
Hmm that's odd...
Bulbapedia says they come with aura break. Are you sure yours had power construct?
Yes, but I didn’t get it directly from the code. Somebody traded it me. The OT is 2018 legends and it was level 60, holding a bottle cap. I guess I wrongly assumed that that was the ability for the event.
Yes, it could have been hacked.
Could you combine the event Zygarde with more cells and get a shiny power construct Zygarde?
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.
