What does it do actually? It raises the chance to get a shiny from the next 10 pokemon I buy in the token store ? By how much does it raises it?

It doesn't raise the chance, it gives a chance. If you don't buy the shiny chance the pokemon you purchase from the store have no chance of being shiny. Token store shiny rates have not been released.

Who makes the decision to withhold this information?

I spent over 500 tokens in buying pokes fron token store shop with shiny bonus but never got one. So this is basically luck. So token store is only ****. Just dont buy pokes with shiny bonus, just dont even buy pokes from ts cause it sucks. Is better u hunt in game for your pokes

We share in decisions so if staff as a whole wanted to change it we could.

*I really dont like grave digging but i have to*

So it looks like the shiny token store chance is still pretty low for the "new" Token store pkm.
Probably bought more than 40 pkm + shiny chance from the Token store and still no S anything.

If i remember correctly the "old" Token store was way better and cheaper since u didnt have to buy an extra chance to get a s pkm, 
you just had to pay a few more extra tokens to increase ur shiny chance. (Every 8th or 10th pkm i bought was a shiny one with high+ IVs)

I hope its not that high since we cant fish for high shiny IV pkm as before.

So, do i have to deal with a 1:100 or 1:2000 Shiny chance or is it still a big mystery?

Shiny chance will be added to next pokemon from token seller, so no need to do anything extra after buying shiny chance.
