PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I'm planning on restarting my Pokémon X and choosing Fennekin so that I can get Zapdos as my Legendary Bird. However, I'm wondering how you soft reset for a 5IV one, since they roam around randomly. Can anyone offer any tips or tricks to SRing for Zapdos/Moltres/Articuno?

P.S. I will be using my Master Ball to save time.

Method for catching Zapdos

After defeating the Elite Four, several Pokémon start to roam the
region, Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres. However, you will only get one:
Articuno if you picked Chespin, Zapdos if you picked Fennekin and
Moltres if you picked Froakie. However, a change has taken place
compared to previous games. These Pokémon will automatically flee from
combat, before you even get a chance to select a move. You can track
their location with the Pokédex. After they have run from you over a
dozen times, they will go to the Sea Spirit's Den where you can
finally battle them.

From Serebii
So you must track Zapdos a dozen times to then find it in the Sea Spirit's Den. There, it will adopt a fix location, perfect for Soft Resetting it.
