The entire Hitmon-family can really be shiny! You possibly can solely acquire Tyrogue from eggs, because it’s technically a “child” Pokémon, whereas the others may be discovered simply hanging out within the wild, although we don’t see them round within the wild too typically.

What’s the shiny fee for Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan in Pokémon Go?
