Pretty much. The rate of finding a shiny in any game is about 1 in 8000. Unless you know how to abuse the internal system like with RNG or have incredible luck, you could play through every generation and every game and never find 1 Shiny.

B2W2 have an item that makes finding shinies a little bit easier and you can breed them at a lower rate using the Matsuda method.
