The short answer is yes, Venipede can be Shiny in Pokemon Go. Although the actual variation of this Pokemon is pretty similar to its original, you might even say it looks worse. It’s got a much more muted color palette than gets better as it evolves, but you might be underwhelmed when you come across it the first time.

That being said, if you catch a Shiny Venipede, it will stay Shiny as it evolves so you’ll have a nice Shiny Scolipede if you choose to evolve it for Candy.
