Shinies will randomly appear at any point in the game, with the exception of things like the Shiny Gyrados in HG/SS there is nothing special you have to do to trigger a shiny encounter.

thank you
BTW, there is a 1/8192 chance of encountering one, so if you're not finding one, that alone explains why. I've only seen seven in the five years I've played.
