I started to watch the Best Wishes Series a couple of weeks ago, I noticed that Cilan's Dwebble/Crustle has a darker shell. Is his a shiny?

No. If you're referring to its debut episode where there were other Dwebble with different colored shells than Cilan's Dwebble, that was obviously done to differentiate them and not because any of them were actually shiny. And just to save you the time, Ash's Meltan wasn't a shiny either.
