I've never encountered any shinies in Random Singles and Doubles, but in Random Triples I've encountered two shiny Pokemon in two different matches.

So, I want to know what is the chance of battle with a shiny Pokemon in random battle, random double battle and random triple battle per battle in Pokemon showdown?

I'm pretty sure Smogon has each of those pokemon set for a move set and ability. Meaning that there are 0 shinies in random battles as of date.

I'm not sure, but it would be easiest to implement pokemon for random battles in that fashion.
recently when i was playing random triple battle,i got a shiny macargo.
Useless Q :P
I don't think it's a useless question.

shiny: (Math.random() * 1024 <= 1)

It's 1/1024

Is that the Showdown Shiny ratio fro random battles, double randoms, and triple randoms e-e?
Yes it is
Since he copy pasted off my own answer, I'll just confirm that I looked at the coding again and nothing has changed. Random shininess is 1/1024.
I did copy-paste so I got it right. This is Sempi's work
