The best way to increase your odds of getting a Shiny Oranguru in Pokemon GO and have it registered in your Pokedex is by finding one in the wild. The more Oranguru encounters you have, the higher your odds of getting a Shiny Oranguru in your account.

Since it is a regular spawn, it will have full Shiny odds of 1-in-512 encounters. So, it can be a grind to find a Shiny Oranguru in the wild. It would be easier to get one via trade but that can cost a lot of Stardust if you don't have it registered in your Pokedex.
