Yungoos and its evolution, Gumshoos, are mostly just ‘sub-Pokémon’. As the respective “pest” or early game rodents in their area, they won’t get much action during raids or anything like that. At least they have cute pink shiny shapes!

What can I do to attract more shiny Pokémon?

Not much, unfortunately. It seems to be random chance. Shiny Pokémon catch rates are set by developer Niantic, and they’re usually only increased during special events like Community Day or the Safari Zone, or during Legendary Raid. There are no consumables that increase the odds of shiny Pokémon.
