Shiny Pokemon are very rare they can pop up at any given time there is no way you can just make one appear no matter how long you play the game straight for

Shiny Pokemon are hard to come by I believe the chance of coming by one is 1/2,966.well if you keep playing you will come across one.

You have to play for a long time. Try playing it while keeping it plugged into the wall. Just leave your person stand for about 2 or more hours then come back (Do not pause the game, just let the game run). Then after leaving the game on for so long, you should start getting shinney Pokemon, maybe not always but sometimes.

The chances of a shiny Pokemon are actually 1 in 8192 so thats a 0.0122% chance of getting one and the chances of a Pokemon hatching shiny from an egg are just as slim so it don't matter if one of the parents are shiny or if both are shiny so have to be extremely lucky or just have the shiny code for action replay
