Thank you for contacting Nintendo,
In answer to your question, it is very unlikely that anyone would be able to receive a shiny Pokemon that are given away at special events.
Shiny Pokemon are extremely rare versions of existing Pokemon in the game. These are found randomly after seeing thousands of specific Pokemon. These "shiny" Pokemon are no more powerful than their normal versions.

I have a question. Can Pokemon from the events example 10 ANIV be shiny?
