If I save right before a egg hatches and soft reset if it isn't shiny would I still get another shot at shiny after the soft reset?

Or is the Pokemon declared shiny once you receive the egg from the day care man?

Also I used the masuda method for the eggs.
LOL for Masuda Method you dont need to SOFT RESET and no he doesnt tell you its shiny, you keep taking eggs (preferably 5 at a time) and hatch them
I know u don't need to soft reset for masuda was just adding that bit of information

The Pokemon inside the egg is pre-determined as soon as they are give to you, so, no. You can't receive the egg, save, hatch then soft reset for a shiny...
