Yes, you can get shiny Riolu in Pokemon GO, but it’s extremely rare.
The only way of getting Riolu in Pokemon GO is by hatching it from an Egg, as it doesn’t spawn in the wild. Then, if you’re lucky enough to hatch Riolu, there’s only a very low chance that it will be the shiny version of Riolu!
Luckily, if you are after the shiny version of this rare Pokemon, there’s no better time to get one than during the Pokemon GO Riolu Hatch Day. This is because there will be a greater chance of hatching shiny Riolu during this event!
Riolu Shiny Odds in Pokemon GO
The odds of any Riolu you encounter in Pokemon GO being shiny are 1 in 64, or 1.6%.

However, the odds of Riolu being shiny are boosted during the Riolu Hatch Day event. The exact odds are not confirmed yet, but they will likely be boosted to 1 in 25, or 4%.
