Can Solrock be shiny in Pokémon GO?

Can this solar Pokémon be shiny?

Niantic regularly adds new shiny Pokémon to Pokémon GO for players to hunt down, and they exist as some of the most sought-after catches in the game. Recently, with the conclusion of the Pokémon GO Fest 2022 Finale, spawns in Pokémon GO became heavily focused on Lunatone and Solrock. This is likely a hint towards the legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala coming to the game, but players could take advantage of this to get ahold of shiny variants of these Pokémon.

Solrock can be shiny in Pokémon GO, though it is not easy to come by. The shiny form of this Pokémon features a sharp contrast to the original body color of Solrock, turning a bright red in opposition to the cool orange color of the original.
