If you see a shiny roaming legendary once, and it gets away, will it stay shiny?

For example, you see a shiny Thundurus, but it flees. Then you see it again later. Will it still be shiny?

Yes roaming pokemon's ivs, and nature are determined on your first encounter and so because ivs and shinieness are linked it will stay shiny.

I'm pretty sure it does. It keeps Nature and stuff from first encounter, so shininess should stay too
