Do you have any Shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Go?

I surprisingly found a shiny Pikachu earlier last week. I evolved my shiny Pichu into a Pikachu awhile ago, but I certainly didn't mind getting a second shiny Pikachu. It also gave me hope that someday I'll finally find a shiny Magikarp.

I also got two shiny Squirtle today during Community Day. That was an awesome surprise. I was happy to just find one shiny Squirtle, but getting two was terrific. Because I had over four hundred Squirtle candies, I evolved both of them into Blastoise and I evolved a wonder Squirtle just to have a strong one with Hydro Cannon. Maybe my luck for finding shiny Pokemon in Go is starting to change.

It's been a while, I've got a fair share of shinies since.

From the Roselia event, two of them in the same hour. Roselia 1259/799
Trip to Patras, tap on random Magikarp, shiny! Evolved into Gyarados 869
And from Squirtle CD, a Blastoise 831 also from Patras and a Sunglasses Wartortle 537

I have a shiny Larvitar, Ivysaur, Roselia, and Wartortle. Each one was caught during their community day or during a boosted spawn event but out of all of them my favorite is Larvitar. I have never caught a shiny one in the main games so getting one on Pokemon GO is a nice consolation prize.
