Soft Resetting

Discussion in 'Pokémon Games Discussion' started by Kawaii Unicorn, Mar 10, 2016.

  1. So I am currently on a soft resetting for many things.
    1. A female shiny eevee in heart gold
    2. A shiny Zapdos (I still wish I could have articuno, why fennikin, why?!?!?!)
    So ya, pretty tough! What are you soft resetting for?

    I don't typically soft reset for shinies as I find it a waste of my time (ironic as my username was originally Shiny Eevee), but I will soft reset on legendaries to get decent natures and IVs, along with event Pokemon and other one-time-only 'mons. Other times I soft reset because all my Pokemon fainted due to carelessness and I don't feel like losing half the moneys I have :'D
     
  3. It is taking a while, but I really want those shinies, so I have to do it!

    Zygarde is shiny-locked in XY along with Xerneas and Yveltal - so, you can take that off your list. No amount of soft resetting will give you one. It is currently impossible to obtain a shiny Zygarde by legal means (legal Shiny Xerneas and Yveltal exist, but those were a Japanese distribution).

    Personally I am really not fussed about shininess so I never actually SR for shinies. Too much effort for a minor cosmetic change.
     
  5. I really dig shinies, but I also have no patience for that sort of thing, so I make do without. It was bad enough breeding for Pokemon with 31 IVs; I can't imagine the pain in the neck it would be doing that much soft resetting for shinies.
     
  6. It's hard it took one guy 5 years to get a shiny mewtwo! I've once soft resetted for a shiny mudkip, it took a while, about half a year

    I've never actually soft resetted for shinies because I find breeding for them easier to deal with, but I will often SR for genders, natures, or abilities when presented with the opportunity. It just depends how much I want a certain thing, such as a female starter Pokemon. :)
