Shiny Locks only began in the Gen V games.

Shiny Locked

Gen V
Zekrom, Reshiram, Victini

Gen VI
Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zygarde, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Deoxys


However, before the Gen V Games there were still unobtainable Shiny Pokemon, as a result of being directly distributed from events. These are not technically "Shiny Locked" but I'll list them below;

Gen II


Gen IV
Spiky-eared Pichu, Arceus, Celebi

Gen V
Celebi, Arceus, Keldeo, Meloetta

Generation VI
Cosplay Pikachu, Celebi, Arceus, Victini, Keldeo, Meloetta, Diancie

This also factors in that some Pokemon can only be received in a particular game by trading from a previous game, in which they may have not been available as a Shiny.
