Yes, you can get the shiny versions of Froakie, Frogadier, and Greninja in Pokemon GO, after they were added to the game on August 12, 2023, as part of the Froakie Community Day.

Any Froakie you encounter has a low chance of being shiny, while you can get shiny Frogadier and shiny Greninja by evolving a shiny Froakie.

You can tell if the Froakie you encounter is the shiny version by its lighter color. Shiny Froakie is a very pale blue compared to its standard version.
