Soft Resetting problem/misunderstand/something??

0 votes

Ok so I'm trying to get a specific nature for a Pokemon.
I save before it hatches, and then after it hatches I check the nature. If it's not the one I want I soft reset the game and hatch it again.

I figured I would get a different nature, but instead I got the same nature.
I kept resetting but everytime it was the same nature and it never changed.

So does soft resetting work for natures? Or is there something I'm doing wrong?

Best answer

Are you saving after you get the egg? You need to save before you get the egg from the Daycare man, not just before it hatches. Natures/ shininess/ IVs etc. are set once you get the egg.

Late reply, but yes - you need to save before you receive the egg.
Ok, thx marz, ugh so much running to do :P
No Flame Body/ Magma Armour Pokemon? But yea, still a lot of cycling...
nope, I dont have a flame body poke in platinum :/ or magma armour
I just checked; Magby or Slugma? Those are kinda the only ones. Flame Body seems hard to get before Gen V...
