I was near Glittery Cave and the first time I ever encountered a helioptile it was SHINY! Is this on purpose or was I just lucky? :-P

It's purposely lucky, although it is programmed in XY to receive a higher chance of receiving a shiny, it's still kind of lucky.

Hope I Helped.

You can't really force a Pokemon into being shiny through regular gameplay. You have a 1/8192 chance of getting one, or a 0.0001220703125 according this Windows calculator.

This was all by luck, you're very lucky, especially to get something kewl like Helioptile.
