Shiny Locks only began in the Gen V games.


Shiny Locked

Gen V
Zekrom, Reshiram, Victini

Gen VI

Sword/Shield
First encounters with Grookey, Scorbunny, Sobble, and Galarian Slowpoke (all of which can be bred to get shinies), Eternatus, Zacian and Zamazenta.

Serebii


However, before the Gen V Games there were still unobtainable Shiny Pokemon, as a result of being directly distributed from events. These are not technically "Shiny Locked" but I'll list them below;

Gen II
Mew

Gen III
Celebi

Gen IV
Spiky-eared Pichu, Arceus, Celebi

Gen V
Celebi, Arceus, Keldeo, Meloetta

Generation VI
Cosplay Pikachu, Celebi, Arceus, Victini, Keldeo, Meloetta, Diancie

Gen VII
Cap Pikachu (except Partner Cap), Victini, Keldeo, Meloetta, Hoopa, Volcanion, Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu, Tapu Fini, Cosmog, Cosmoem, Solgaleo, Lunala, Necrozma, Magearna, Marshadow, Zeraora

Gen VIII
Zacian, Zamazenta, Eternatus

This also factors in that some Pokemon can only be received in a particular game by trading from a previous game, in which they may have not been available as a Shiny.

The legendary birds are not actually shiny locked in X and Y, but the rest are.
