I have already caught my shiny exeggcute and I want to get harvest on it if possible. Can I get it if I keep soft reseting and evolving or not? This is in ultra moon and I obtained it through sos.

Which game are you asking about? How did you get the Exeggcute?
no, you won't get Harvest on the same Pokemon, even if you keep resetting. This is because it's determined by a number of variables at the time of capture, so once captured, you can't soft-reset it at the time of evolution to change its ability- much less to a hidden ability.

Sadly, no. You need an SOS chain for a harvest Exeggcute.

I don't think you can. I'm not sure, but I think the Exeggcute's ability has to be harvest for the evolution to have harvest as well. I don't think it is possible to soft reset natures unless it is a gift Pokemon, for example porygon. Porygon's normal nature, if I'm correct, is Download. But it is possible to Soft Reset for a different nature.

This is just of the top of my head, so it might not be correct.
