Encountering 2 shiny Pokémon in a row in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal

Has anyone ever encountered 2 shiny Pokémon in a row? I actually have! I calculated the chances of this happening and I came up with the following result:
The chances of encountering 2 shiny Pokémon in a row in G/S/C are 67125265 to 1 (0.000001489752%)!
You are more likely to win the 1st (not grand) prize of the PowerBall Lottery (For those who live in the US) then to encounter 2 shiny Pokémon in a row in these games!

Has anyone else ever witnessed this?

In Pokemon, it is very hard to do but if you do the math I'm sure there's a way to do it more likely in a Gen 4 game. RNG is still under some level of player control but it requires a lot of prior knowledge. There could very well be numbers assigned to those catches that are a certain distance apart with similar results. I haven't done anything like this but just know I could. RNG Abuse is a very neat and useful topic in Pokemon that Smogon and Youtube have both covered.
