The Gold Magikarp is a shiny Magikarp. It evolves into a red Gyarados. There is a 1 in 8912 chance that the Pokemon you encounter is shiny. This can be reduced to 1 in 2048 chance by using the Masuda method. This is basically when you breed a Magikarp with a foreign Ditto. The egg has a 1 in 2048 chance of being shiny.

Can shiny Pokemon be bred?

Yes, you have the same odds of breeding a shiny Pokemon as you do of encountering a random one in the wild. Those odds are about 1/8000 or so, but there is a new method that you can use to help your odds. It is called the Masuda Method; get a foreign ditto in your diamond/pearl/platinum (by foreign, I mean in a different language than your game. for example, and Australian ditto on a US game will not work, they are both English). Then, by breeding the ditto with whatever Pokemon, your odds are increased to about 1/2000. This works because the creators made it so the game goes through four "shiny frames" instead of the one that it usually does, as I understand it. One thing to remember, the everstone trick (to get the nature you want) will not work. My friend has gotten a shiny male nidoran this way after a little over 100 eggs so it is definitely faster and well worth it to invest some time into going to the GTS and searching for a foreign ditto :)

Can you get a shiny Pokemon with a Shiny Stone using Dittos?

Can you get a shiny Pokemon from a shiny ditto and a shiny jolteon in pokemon white?

No, you don't. Shiny Pokemon appear in Pokemon White version like every other Pokemon game, you can get them through breeding, a legendary could be one, or you could find one in the wild. However, using the Masuda method, which is breeding Pokemon from separate languages, it is more likely to get a shiny then in past games.
