How do you Soft Reset?

0 votes

I know you have to hit certain buttons. I'm playing Platinum and using a DSlite.

EDIT: Does this lose all your progress or just reboot to when you saved?

Press:

  • Select
  • Start
  • L
  • R

All at once. You'll reboot to where you last saved.

It's best to do this if you're shiny hunting legendaries.
I would save right in front of the legendary and interact and soft reset until it's shiny.
This could take long however. If you really want a shiny it might take 10,000 soft resets.
I wish I could up vote more...thx!
