Is there a Shiny Carbink in Pokemon Go?

Currently, there is no Shiny version of Carbink available in Pokemon Go. This isn’t surprising as Niantic don’t often release a Shiny version of Pokemon that’s a brand-new addition to the game. For now, players will have to stick with the regular version of Carbink.

Carbink is a Jewel Pokemon that was first introduced in Generation VI, and this creature has multiple blue crystals on its body with a light-blue one stuck in the center of its forehead. This new Pokemon may prove to be a valuable addition to PvP battles in Pokemon Go.

That covers everything that you need to know about how to get Carbink in Pokemon Go.
