I've tried reading it up but I just don't get it. Can you encounter multiple of the same legendaries? Do you save before you encounter and soft reset or is it already predetermined?

any advice will be helpful, thanks

Once you catch a Legendary, it's gone. If you don't, it can be encountered again. Try to find wormholes of every colour but white, as white ones only have UBs. If they have a flowery effect around them, a Legendary is guaranteed.

Once you find the Legendary you want, save in front of it. If it's shiny, well done. If not, soft reset and try again and again until it's shiny.

Note that sort resetting only works for Legendary Pokemon, regular wormhole Pokemon cannot be soft resetted for shininess.

Thank you! if i recall correctly, you can change the motion controls to the circle pad. Do you know where i can change that?
I'm not entirely sure, but I believe you can do that in Ultra Megalopolis, along with change between Lunala and Solgaleo.
"First, fly to Heahea City on Akala Island. From the Pokemon Center, make a right, and enter the last building on the corner. Go into the Gamefreak office on the second floor and talk to the Aether Paradise employee to the left of the entrance to change the controls [for the Ultra Warp Ride]."
