Can Diglett be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

It’s time for the next Spotlight Hour. This January 11th, Diglett will be in the spotlight which obviously means you’ll be asking yourself, can Diglett be shiny in Pokemon Go? Long answer short, yes! You can indeed find yourself a shiny Diglett during this spotlight hour but it’s worth noting that Diglett’s shiny isn’t one of the best. In fact, the only difference between Diglett and shiny Diglett is the nose, which is turned blue instead of pink.
