Shapefiles don't support subtypes

Geoprocessing considerations for shapefile output—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

Additionally, they do not support capabilities found in geodatabases, such as domains and subtypes. So unless you have very simple attributes and require no geodatabase capabilities, do not use shapefiles.
