How to Get Shiny Basculin in Pokémon Go

You can get the red-striped Basculin within Earth’s Eastern Hemisphere, and the blue-striped Basculin within Earth’s Western Hemisphere. However, during the Ultra Unlock 2021 event, you can encounter both Basculins everywhere across the World. So, it is a good chance to get them in your collection.
