Not exactly the same, since there are multiple spreads that make a Pokemon shiny. Which was why you had a higher chance of hatching a shiny when breeding a shiny back in those days.
As of RS, shininess is determined by the trainer's ID/SID combination along with a Pokemon's ID. And it's set up so that the odds are still 1/2^13.
And lucky? Normally yes. But running into a lot of shinies can sometimes bite you in the ass. Running into a shiny in the Battle Tower, Explosion/Whirlwind, etc.
