I really want to get a jolly nature jirachi from Pokemon channel but apparently you have to beat the elite four in ruby/sapphire to recieve it, does this mean I have to reset the file then complete the game every time I want to get a different jirachi? Or is there some easier way to soft reset for it to get the right nature like the colosseum bonus disk jirachi? I’ve seen someone in a YouTube video comment claim they got a shiny jirachi after soft resetting but how do you do it?

to get jirachi in R/S the game needs to be european since on USA releases you can get it from closseum bonus disc
Did you mean you CAN'T get it in the USA releases, or I am reading this wrong? Because the US isn't a part of Europe.
I must be misunderstanding or missing something here, because that sentence really confused me...
No I meant you can get jirachi in both USA and Europe.  The only reason I mentioned the colosseum bonus disk is because I know for that jirachi there is an easy way to get the nature you want but it’s not as easy for channel jirachi since you have to complete r/s first  I’m saying you CAN easily soft reset on the colosseum bonus disk and you CAN’T easily soft reset from pokemon channel, my problem is I only have pokemon channel and want a jolly jirachi, is there any way to easily soft reset to get a better nature? (Since to recieve the channel jirachi you need to beat the elite four) and I really don’t want to beat the entire game hundreds of times till I get the nature I want.
I guess that clears things up, even if I was talking to ShinyDrago. Thanks, I guess.
Ohhh right sorry

"Soft resetting" isn't really a thing in Pokemon Channel. You would need to reset your Gen III game each time, like you thought. The person claiming they soft reset probably did it through Pokemon Colosseum (with the bonus disc, sadly). Note that although this second tutorial shows a way to get a shiny, it can most likely be used to get any "seed" for Jirachi. Also note that Jirachi can only be gotten through the PAL version of Pokemon Channel.
