Sentret questions

I'm playing Pokemon Pearl and want to get a shiny Palkia, but right now I'm in front of it and have a weak party. What I'm wandering is that if you loose to Palkia and re-battle it with a stronger team, could it still be shiny? Or can it only be shiny in the 1st battle with it?
Sentret thinks like always like always you have your chances there yeah
