Is there a Shiny Drilbur in Pokemon GO?

Players wouldn't be able to encounter Shiny Drilbur during the Unova Collection Event. Pokemon GO has a shiny version of Drilbur, but there is a very low chance of encountering this creature.

However, the Unova Collection Challenge has added various other Pokemon species which trainers can encounter. These include the likes of Tepig, Oshawott, Snivy, Herdier, Zebstrika, Lillipup, Roggenrola, Solosis, and Ferroseed. Players should note that there is a limited time window to catch the above Pokemon species to complete the Unova Collection Challenge.

The Unova Celebration Event began on January 5 and it is currently available for all players. As part of the event, Niantics has also released the first Unova Collection Challenge.
