How do you reset to get a shiny starter?
Do I hard reset or soft reset?
And how do I reset?
I'm new to the reset for a shiny process, and I don't even know where and how to begin.

I'm just saying, good luck with hunting for a shiny XY starter... those soft resets are brutal...

You reset for a shiny starter by saving right where you get to pick your starter Pokemon, soft resetting your game, picking your starter and checking if it's shiny or not in a battle or by checking the summary. I recommend soft resetting because it's faster, and all you need to do is hold L, R and either start or select.
