Unfortunately the Synchronize nature wasn't passed down to the shiny legendary Pokemon I encountered. So I soft reset and started over the process. Question is can you encounter this shiny legendary again? note I never caught or saved the game for that shiny encounter previously.

Legendary Pokémon aren't shiny locked so when you are about to encounter them in the Ultra Wormhole save and soft reset until you get a Shiny Legendary.

I hope this answers your question.

Only reason I answered after @AlolanVulpix was because I felt their answer was not too clear (since instead of saying "Yes" or "No" they said "I hope this answers your question" as I am writing this) but if you feel different, tell me so I can hide my answer.

Also out of curiosity who were you hunting. Currently in an ultra wormhole I am hunting Yvetal.

I'm currently hunting Shiny Entei and I'm trying to capture it in Level ball with an Adamant nature. When I hunt for shinies I aim for having a trophy pokemon, a pokemon that looks good in its pokeball and is competitive in battle. For example a week ago I caught a Shiny Palkia in a Love Ball, "yes very lucky"! Yvetal NICE, I caught one 4 days ago in a Timer Ball, Adamant nature. What pokeball do you plan to use?
Premier and great balls are my favorites. I hope you get your entei!
Update I never caught Entei in a Level. Had only 4 level balls and all 4 missed. And it was level 1 and asleep, so I went for second choice the Heavy Ball. Oh well got the nature I wanted.
Level 1 Entei?
Yeah, I didn't ever catch a shiny, but I currently have 3 legendary pokemon caught from the wormhole:  1. Articuno 2. raikou and 3. (the one I am most proud of) reshiram
