It hasn't been announced as of yet. Bulbapedia mentions nothing and Serebii says "in Generation VI they have increased the likelihood even further, with the rate being reduced even further."
If you read my answer ignore it, I made a mistake.
The odds are 5/8192 instead of 1/8192.Yes,it is the same as all the previous Gens.

Source: and a friend of mine did the math.

Hope I helped!
Errm Sorry I converted because the chances weren't on bulbapedia. So flawed answer?
