Can you soft-reset for Xerneas?

2 votes

I wanted to get a shiny Xerneas, but I know it is shiny locked. Does that mean you can't soft reset to get a shiny one? In addition can you soft reset to get a shiny starter? Also is there any way to increase your chance when soft reseting? Thanks!

You can soft reset for Xerneas, but it won't ever be shiny unless you hack. You can still soft reset for IVs though.

You can soft reset for a shiny starter, but the chance of getting a shiny starter is 1/4096 for Gen VI. There's no way to increase the chances of getting a shiny starter without hacking/ tampering with the game while soft resetting. It's probably better and less time consuming to finish the game and then use the Masuda method to breed for a shiny that you want.
