In the GTS, there are a ton of shiny Pokémon, specifically those three. This couldn't be a hack so what is it?

They are from chain fishing, a new mechanic in X and Y that makes it more likely for you to find Shinys if you can get many Pokemon in a row with your fishing rod. Failing to find anything breaks the chain, as does moving from your position.

How many catches do you need for it to be shiny?
It's really ambiguous, some get a shiny after four chains, some after four hundred.
Usually I get about 20 chains before I find my shiny, it's really all up to luck.
