Shininess: Red Gyarados is not an exception
In Generation II, whether or not a Pokémon is Shiny is determined by its IVs.
 
A Pokémon is Shiny if and only if both of the following conditions are met (with the exception of the [[Red Gyarados]], which will still have the same stats in Generation II, but may have different IVs in Generation IV).
*Its Defense, Speed, and Special IVs are all 10.
*Its Attack IV is 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 14, or 15.
 
Except when IVs are influenced due to {{pkmn|breeding}}, this set of IVs has a 1/8192 chance of occurring, which is also the likelihood of a wild Pokémon being Shiny in Generation III, IV, and V. Due to HP IV being calculated from the other IVs, a Shiny Pokémon's HP IV can only be 0 (if the Attack IV is even) or 8 (if the Attack IV is odd). The [[Red Gyarados]] at the [[Lake of Rage]], which is guaranteed to be Shiny, is forced by the game to have IVs that allow it to be Shiny.
 
Since 0 and 1 are not possible Attack IVs for a Shiny Pokémon, female Pokémon of {{cat|Pokémon with a gender ratio of seven males to one female|species with a seven male to one female ratio}} can never be Shiny in Generation II.
