In third gen I didn't even find ONE shiny. :(
I don't think I've ever heard of someone getting a shiny through having a first gen pokemon with the individual values to be shiny in second gen; that's pretty cool.
Now that I think about it, I guess I could say that I have encountered a shiny before. Only, the shiny Gyarados from Silver Version.
