Shaymin Pokemon GO Fest: Is Shaymin Shiny?
The developers reported, "This year’s event is all about Shaymin, the Gratitude Pokémon! Trainers will be tasked with conducting Special Research to learn more about this Mythical Pokémon and will encounter Land Forme Shaymin along the way. Other rewards will include an event-exclusive avatar item and a special avatar pose."
Along with this, trainers can explore different Special Research tasks and some Shiny Pokemon. Pokemon GO Fest tickets are available for purchase for $14.99 in the United States, along with a free Pokemon GO Tee item for your avatar within the in-game shop. Shaymin will only be available for ticket holders during this event.

So far Shaymin doesn't appear to be shiny.
