No because poison disappears at 1 HP so Shedinja would live.

Outside of battle, Shedinja immediately recovers from Poison after four steps in Generation IV onwards, whereas in Generation III it will immediately faint after four steps.

So in Generation III, Shedinja will faint.
In Generation IV, Poison is cured.
