Sorry if this is old...Go to Nimbasa City, go in the building just north of the Pokemon Center. Talk to the two people on the first floor, and they both mention Shiny Pokemon, with a capital S.
didn't Nintendo Mention it on the Crown Beasts Campaign?
i thought i read, get your Shiny Pokémon from the WI-FI connection! or something between those lines
I noticed this. :D
Also calls them "shiny forms" in the Pokédex if you've seen one.

Oooooh, so tempted to continue the campaign to get Snivy's name changed XD
I saw this and was happy :)
..and so it was and Arceus was pleased, and said it was good.
-book of Unova 5:3
i was so happy about this when i saw it :)
Yep it did say "Shiny" during the crown beast campaign. They've officially adopted the term. I mean they might as well since everyone is going to call them that anyway.
Also i dont think Snivy's name needs to be changed, its fine.
I always thought it was the official term :p I never knew it was just a fan term.
I don't always resist, but when I do, it's with The Resistance. Stay resistant, my friends.

But hey! I'm pretty glad that "shiny" is now an official term.
With a mustache.
Haha I noticed that. I was surprised, to be honest. But I dont think it really needs to say 'a Shiny Joltik appeared' (that actually happened to me), coz the sparkle kinda announces its arrival quite clearly.
I saw the girl in game say it and I had the same reaction. I didn't process it with the beasts but I found the thing the kid at Gamestop gave me when I got my raikou and it does indeed call them shiny.
I'm more happy that it tells you how many shinies you saw and, once you get the pokedex upgrade from Prof Juniper's dad, you can see different forms. In Gen 4 that only gave you male and female and different forms of things like castform and deoxys... now it will show you the shiny form. ._. It even tells you how many shinies of that species you have seen.
The best part? You can change the default image. In Gen 4 if the first you saw of a species was a certain gender or a certain form (like my female venusaur) it stayed that way. Now you can chose between male/female/forme changed form/SHINY. I borrowed my friend's shiny Krokorok just to make it my picture in my pokedex. :3
They're recognizing our love of shinies in a lot of ways... if only they had not taken away the pokeradar. >_>
Its cool for me since I can switch my masuda method hatched starters to shiny form on the pokedex. Snivy looks awesome
