I know in previous games, people would reset to get a female fossil, can you still do that? has anyone tried?

I gave it several tries, but I kept getting the same gender each time, so I can't tell if it's working or not. I didn't give it very many tries, though, and the gender ratio is very one-sided, so it's hard to tell.

They're usually 7 males to one female, so try resetting at least 16 times and keep this question only if it doesn't work.
^^ Agreed. I'm not sure if you've tried soft resetting but that is always quicker.
Can't you just use a Ditto from Mount Hokulani?

If there is still a gender ratio listed on here, then I would assume you can still do that. However, Nintendo might have chamged the system so that when you obtain the fossil, everything is predetermined.
