You can catch shiny pokemon, but it's very rare (1/8192 chance). Unfortunately there is no PokeRadar in HG/SS so there is no way to increase chances. You'll just have to hope you stumble across one sooner or later.

You get the red Gyarados, of course ;)

If you want to breed for a shiny Pokemon, breed your Pokemon with a Pokemon from another country (GTS) this increases your chance of getting a shiny to something like: 1/2100.

I got this information from Serebii or Marriland or somewhere alike, I believe it's only superstition but when breeding with foreign Pokemon parents more foreign offspring have been found. Maybe they have magic Pokesemen?

Yes, you can catch 'em in any game. Higher chance on DPP 'cause of the Poke Radar.
