To start with let me say that I have never SEEN a shiny pokemon on my Ruby game pack (I have 210 hours on it in just this file). Have I looked? Yes. Found any? No. The closest Ive gotten to a shiny is when my friend found a shiny zubat.... without pokeballs. So my questions are; are shinys found completely by luck? or is there some factors that play in to your chances of finding them?

Thank you very much, although I was hoping there was a way to raise my chances..

it's 1 in 8192, and anyone that tells you there is a way to find one easier is lying.
I've had ruby since it was released and never have seen one on there in the wild.... however, a month after i got Emerald I found a shiny oddish in the safari zone. Shortly after I got XD i found a shiny hopip. I got the eon ticket for Ruby in mid-october and had been resetting for a shiny Latias, found one on Xmas day that I lost because i didn't have a masterball and found another one again there that i caught on valentine's day.

It's all up to luck as I had 2 in a short period after never seeing one for the entire time ruby was out then never saw another til i reset for the Latias.

Dude, I've got 800+ hours racked up in my Emerald file, I've seen a million pokemon, but NO SHINY.

I'm not complaining though, shinies show up when you least expect them.

I had over 380 hours on Ruby, i found 1 shiny oddish. My friend has had emerald for about 30 hours and has a shiny tentacool and Zigzagoon. So, its pure luck (but i have pokerus, so i win! :D)

Over all my cartridges, I have about a thousand hours clocked.

In Fire Red, only shiny I've caught was a shiny nidorino in the Safari Zone. I caught it on the second safari ball, if memory serves.

In Emerald, I've caught a shiny slugma and a shiny manectric. But the manectric was adamant... boo.

I turned it into a contest pokemon.
