The ranking is calculated using "Bayesian average". This is a weighted average which takes into account how many ratings a Pokémon has.
This is to prevent that Pokémon with only a couple of ratings dominate the highest / lowest rated rankings. Since the Pokémon have a very large spread in the number of ratings, this is the best way to calculate the ranking. Also it is less vulnerable to haters who try to downvote certain Pokémon! (or lovers who try to upvote ofcourse ;) ).
The number shown on the ranking list and on the Shiny Pokémon page is a normal average.

Shiny Pokémon have different coloration than the standard Pokémon. Encountering a shiny Pokémon is very rare. You’ll never forget your first shiny found and caught in the wild. Every single shiny Pokémon is cool and someone should be proud if you have just a single one. However, some are much cooler looking than other shiny Pokémon are. Deciding what the best shiny Pokémon is, is a tough task. What makes a shiny Pokémon special? Some of the best shiny Pokémon only exhibit minor color changes, while others take on drastic transformations. Some standard Pokémon are already epic (e.g. Charizard), so it’s easier to get an epic shiny. There is no standard for rating shiny Pokémon. It is up to personal preference. However, on shinyrating.com we have two guidelines:
1. Rate in comparison to the standard form. 2. Rarity can make a shiny even more beautiful.
Keep your eyes peeled for the best shiny Pokémon and leave your rating on our website. Do you remember the first time you encountered a shiny Pokémon? Describe your feeling in the rating section of the concerned shiny.
