hello, I have a question regarding my heartgold game. Normally when your shiny hunting in the game especially for the starters you would soft reset but the problem with my game is that it wont soft reset for some reason. Does turning off your DS and back on still work but its a slower way of doing it?
If you have a 3ds, you can put the game in the 3ds and soft reset fast by pressing L + R + start or select.
If you have a normal ds, sorry but you're out of luck, as those can't do soft resets the same way. Powering on and off will work just fine. Good luck finding your shiny!
