Can Tepig be Shiny?

One of the main benefits of any Community Day event in Pokémon GO is the boosted shiny rate of the featured Pokémon. This is no different during Tepig Community Day. You can expect to see a bunch of them, if you play throughout the six hour event and encounter all of the Tepig you see along the way. Using Incense and/or Lures will help as well, but also watch for Field Research or pick up the Roasted Berries ticket once it is available to try to get more of them.
