So, some of us know of that Secret Pikachu Starter thing you can do when you start Pokemon GO, and I would like to know the chances, if possible for that Pikachu to be shiny. Or any methods you can use according to the Pikachu one to make it shiny without a hack.

This question is completely different. The linked one asks can starter Pokémon including Pikachu be shiny or not. But this question also asks for the chances and methods for obtaining it. ;)

2nd reason why I said so to PX and Fizz
Like what Alphacelestius said, I asked for chances to as well as methods, if any. Thanks by the way.
It's my pleasure. Glad I could help!
Reopened bc the original question/answer linked does not resolve this question. I edited the title to reflect the authors intent via the details and their post on my wall
Wouldn't it be the same odds as any other Pokemon
But it is the first encounter so I would think that it has a lower odd of being shiny?
Omg. Every Pokemon encounter has the same odds of being shiny. In Pokemon Go that chance is about 1/450. It has the same odds of being shiny but because it's the first encounter it's very unlikely (1/450 in fact) that it will be shiny.

It is a set encounter, so it has a 0% chance to be shiny. The Pikachu will always be the same, with the same stats.
