Yes, Druddigon can be shiny and here’s how to catch one.  To catch a Shiny Druddigon during the Dragonspiral event you will need to get a bit lucky, though completing the Collection Challenge, Field Research or Raid Battles will be the way to get it by repeating these things during the course of the event which will span from Tuesday to Sunday.  Taking advantage of the higher spawn rates during this time will give you a better chance of getting a Shiny Druddigon.
