Okay. THERE IS 1 trainer. Just 1.
In the Trainer Tower on Seven Island in FireRed and LeafGreen, there is a trainer with a Shiny Espeon.

I concur, I believe the 1/8192 chance applies to EVERY Pokemon.
I've actually encountered a trainer with a shiny Ninjask in the Trainer Hill in Pokemon Emerald.
I mean 100% chance. This trainer ALWAYS has a green, shiny Espeon.
Oh oh! I see; well that's interesting! :o
thanks!

I have been playing Pokemon for a very long time and I have never come across a trainer / gym leader with any shiny pokemon, so no, I don't think they can...

((in the show, pokemon, doesn't Iris have a shiny Hydreigon?))

There is a trainer with a shiny Feraligatr in the trainer tower at 7 island. It was probably done to introduce shiny Pokemon to new players
