Shiny Pokémon don't appear on your overworld map: you have to actually encounter them first to see if they're Shiny. You should encounter a Shiny Pokémon once every 450 encounters, but it's unknown if the event will boost Dunsparce. If it does, you might see a chance in about 130 encounters.

How good is Dunsparce in battle? It's just okay. The big thing going for it is that it's a Normal type that learns Bite, which makes it effective against any Ghost type opponents. If you're fighting Dunsparce, a good Fighting type move will just put it down. Just don't send any Ghosts against it.
