You need to click L+R+Start+Select all at the same time. On gameboy games it's A+B+Start+Select all at same time. Remember to do it ALL AT THE SAME TIME, or it won't work and it won't soft reset... Lemme list them one more timsez.

For DS or Dsi games:


For Gameboy games:

Also please note that the Soft-reset works for any type of DS (not sure about 3DS), and DSi's also have the Home button you can press, it basically does the same thing as soft-resetting.

Soft resetting (often shortened as SRing) is a feature found in the
main series Pokémon games, with the exception of Pokémon Colosseum.

You have to press the following buttons at the same time:

  • L
  • R
  • Select
  • Start

I have done this before so I know.
If you don't press them together this will not work.
This is just a way of resetting the game and takes less energy than switching on and off. Better for the DSi and the Game Chip too.

Well, have fun Soft Resetting!
