Anime =/= Games is the simple answer. Plus, I thought they revisited it in the anime.
I guess it would be interesting. Actually, it would be far more interesting than the "usual" events they normally hand out (except for the shiny ones). And I'm saying this despite the fact that I highly dislike the first movie considering it the essence of all that's ever gona wrong in the pokmn anime*shot*
But anyway, it's not like they can suddenly decide to do it, just like that. They can't make up new sprites to add in an already-existing game, but they will have to be already in the coding of the game. The same way that Reshiram, Zekrom and Victini's shiny sprites weren't legitimally obtainable in B/W, but still could be made available through events or trades.
Wich means, if it will ever happen, it's not going to be before gen 6. Also, we'd know about it as soon as such a game comes out, for we'll be able to see all the sprites of the game before we'll obtain them (you know, just like we knew all the shiny forms of the new pokemon as soon as the games were released in japan).
Well, if it game as part of the 6th Gen, like all past gens, you'd be able to get all Pokémon in your current gen. No need to return to Kanto. I can get a perfectly legit Squirtle in my Black, but it's not part of the generation and it's not set in Kanto. Yet I can still get it. So, that part of the argument holds no value, we don't need to return to Kanto to see it.
Plus, with the release of Black 2 and White 2, you can catch N's old Pokémon which are variants of shinies. Why can it not be possible to add some markings to existing sprites.
Sure, as someone said, why have one when you can have a normal Pikachu, but the same can be said about why would I want a shiny Pikachu when I can have a normal one? That point is also invalid. If it's rare, people will want it.
Regardless, this is just my opinion, and I'm glad for all your feedback so far, it's really nice to hear about your thoughts.
this idea is interesting.. the clones looked somewhat different if i recall... like the awesome Charizard with stripes on it.. (correct me if i'm wrong on any of this) i don't think they would.. but having those as an alternate shiny form would be pretty cool ^.^

Hexadusa and Cubelatin, the Floating Jelly PokemonType-Psychic/Electric
Ability-Levitate/Static, Dry Skin(Dream World)
Basis-Hexadusa and Cubelatin are based off the box jellyfish. They are like normal jellyfish, except with behaviour and more complex
Name origin-Hexadusa uses Hexahedron(the name of a cube) and Medusa(the name of the shape of jellyfish). Cubelatin uses cube and gelatin
Pokedex description-"Highly intelligent, Hexadusa has managed to escape the sea. It does this to hunt birds."/ "Though powerful, Hexadusa rarely confront their opponent. They are secretly vulnerable organisms."
Stats-Hexadusa have quite poor physical defense and offense. They make this up, however, with great special and speed. They also have a nice amount of HP
Moves-Hexadusa and Cubelatin are good status inflictors-along with moves you'd expect, they know a fair number of Poison moves. Also, they have a few Water moves. They have a unique move called Electro Whip. Electro Whip is a Special based move with 60 base power and 15 PP. It has a small chance of Poisoning the opponent.

Evolves-Depthurm-Lv 20-Shadworm-Lv 33-Wurmbra
Name basis-Shadworm and Wurmbra mix shadow or umbra(also related to shadow) with worm. Depthurm does the same, but with depth(for irony)
Description-This Pokemon is based off a literal interpretation of the flatworm. It is the mixture of a shadow and a flatworm. Depthurm starts off a small shadow with floating eyes. Shadworm looks like a shadow version of the traditional flatworm with some colorful stripes, while Wurmbra takes it up a notch by being a giant shadow worm
Stats-This Pokemon has strangely good speed. It had nice special defenses and good defense, but very little physical attack. It does have some great Special Attack when it evolves.
Glisquid and CephloatType-Water/Psychic
Evolves-Glisquid-Lv 30 Cephloat
