Yes, catching a shiny is based purely on your luck. There are a lot of people who have been playing for years and have never even seen a random one like you. The best way to hunt them in my opinion is to do the Masuda Method while using the Shiny Charm which cuts 1/8192 (0.01%) all the way down to 1/1024 (0.1%). While it is still a very slim chance, that is your best bet.

I myself have only encountered two random shinies and Masuda'd two.
