I'm soft resetting for a shiny Mudkip in my old Ruby game as we speak. I have confidence that it will appear shiny eventually so I'm still pretty energetic about this! This is my first time soft resetting so I'm kinda scared that the shiny wild pokemon would appear first. >_> But I'm still excited for it to shine nonetheless. I really hope this won't take me forever!

I have soft reseted in ORAS to try getting shiny legendaries...

But I got frustrated and took the normal version...

I did get a shiny off of wondertrade... Yay...

yes, many times, got some legendaries in the past, all the ultrabeasts is Ultrasun and lately all shiny fossils in Sword. its all about patience and stamina. works out best for me when watching videos or tv. some took only a few hours, others around two weeks.

This summer got shiny Dracovish in Shield.
Later tried SR other fossils but no luck.
Nerymon, you are right, it takes forever :(

I even had more luck in SoulSilver and the shiny chances there are WAY lower.

Mewtwo is just trolling me... 🙄

Yes but I've never had any luck doing it that way. I just prefer using other methods to get a shiny xD
