Can Fennekin be shiny in Pokémon GO?

Want a shiny fox?

Niantic regularly adds new shiny Pokémon for Pokémon GO players to hunt down. The Pokémon that get the most consistent inclusion in the many events held throughout the year are starter Pokémon. They are among the most popular monsters in the franchise, so their shiny forms are naturally coveted. Fennekin, one of the more celebrated starters, has yet to receive its shiny debut in the mobile game.
