if you mean an empty shapefile, you specify a folder as the destination and not a geodatabase

Create Feature Class—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS Desktop 

similarly if you want to make one from existing data using

Copy Features—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS Desktop 

Just examine the dialog options carefully

Great info - this is a significant departure from ArcMap, and should probably be more evident in help somewhere - this was a second tier result when Googling "create shapefile arcgis pro".

Glad it worked out Amy. The distinction between folder and geodatabase is the key
