Yes, you can find a Shiny Skitty in Pokemon Go. While it’s incredibly rare, as is the case with all of the Pokemon in the franchise, it is possible you will come across this Shiny Pokemon.

The best way to try and find a Skitty in Pokemon Go is to use an Incense, which increases the amount of wild Pokemon you’ll find for a set amount of time. The more wild Skitty you encounter and battle, the more likely you will be to find a Shiny. This will not increase your percentage chance, but you’ll only encounter one if you keep trying.
