I'm playing Pokemon emerald right now and I caught a shiny Pokemon (zubat to be exact) but it didnt have the nature I expected, can I catch the same shiny twice? Or every Pokemon appears shiny just once?

Yes you can but the chance is 1/8192 each time you encounter a Pokemon. Therefore chances are you will never find it again. Shiny Pokemon do not enhance the stats of the Pokemon, they just look cool so if you are prepared to give up a shiny for a good nature, then do so. That or keep your shiny and train it.
