There are 3 ways how.

1.You can trade someone who owns a Red gyarados.
2.You can catch one because Red gyarados is a Shiny gyarados. But it's gonna be hard 1 in 8,172 IIRC
3.Or you can use a Action Replay and put the codes so any pokemon is shiny

Thank you Eric! :D
You can also catch the red Gyarados in HeartGold/SoulSilver.
I didn't know that!
........ Well, now I do.
That AR code isn't permanent
I believe after you beat the game there is one That is guaranteed to be shiny at the lake.The on ein the beggining.

You could also find a shiny magikarp and evolve it.

three words: magikarp is .........USELESS
true, but Swampert does have a good answer!
Instead of finding a shiny Magikarp, you could breed a female Gyarados with an international Pokemon you recieved over wi-fi, since this gives you a better chance of a shiny Pokemon hatching from an egg. This is also kinda useful since Magikarp evovles at a pretty low level.
MAGIKARP IS NOT USELESS!!!!!!! IT HAS A GREAT USE OF CATCHING DITTO/MEW!!!
LOL! Ditto turns in to magicarp!Ditto uses splash!But nothing happened!User used one ultra ball!Ditto is caught!LOL!
