In Pokemon, I started shiny hunting. One hunt was for a Drifloon that took about 3 days. But my hunt for Dialga is taking over a month! I know the shiny odds are low in these games, but do other factors such as your ID and Secret ID effect the odds of a shiny, or is it just bad luck?

It’s just bad luck.
The shiny is determined by a random number generator. It picks a number between one and ~65000, and if it selects 1-8, it’s shiny. The only things that effect shiny odds in gen 4 is Cute Charm (with the whole cute charm glitch and stuff), and the Pokeradar.

Oof. If the answer helped, could you press the green check mark?

In addition to what the other answer said, the Masuda method also raises the shiny chance.
