where can you find lots of shiny Pokemon in Pokemon go?

I don't think there's a definite method to finding shinies

For the most part, finding shinies in go are random, just like anywhere else. The odds are about 1/450.

However, they do have boosted odds in raids and events, such as Community Days, which happen once per month. Community days have odds of 4%. Source

Also note, some Pokemon are shiny locked.

You can check here for more detail on the odds, but yeah, basically it's just random outside of events.

The default shiny chance is 1/500 (0.2%).
There are also permaboosted mons with naturally higher shiny rates- typically given to Pokémon rare to spawn wild or Raid/Egg exclusive. Some legendary raids have had shiny chances as high as 1/20. Shiny Celebi is free after completing the “Distracted by Something Shiny” Special Research. :P
