Yes, if you are lucky, you can find and catch the shiny version of both Slowpoke and its Galarian regional version in Pokemon GO.

However, just like all shinies in Pokemon GO, the odds of encountering a shiny Slowpoke are extremely low. Both versions of Slowpoke have a shiny rate of 0.2%, or 1 in 500!

If you’re after a shiny version of Slowpoke, then the best time to catch one is during the Pokemon GO Slowpoke Spotlight Hour! However, the Galarian version will not be spawning during this event.
