If you had RBGY Pokemon with certain stats and transferred it to GSC, it would be shiny. Was he chance of finding this Pokemon with specific stats in RBGY 1/8096, or something else?

This is a question for curiosity.

Best answer

The ratio of shiny to non-shiny IV spreads in Gen I and II is 1/8192 (it's technically incorrect to say this is the "chance" of finding a shiny due to how the RNG works, but it's close enough). However, due to a quirk in the Gen I RNG, normal wild encounters in grass, caves, or water will never have an IV spread that results in shininess, and so only stationary and fishing encounters, in-game trades, and gift Pokémon can have shiny IVs in Gen I.
