Soft Resetting, or S/Ring, the ancient art of turning your game off and on in order to get good IVs on legends or even bred pokes. I'm going to walk you through this, since I am sick of PMs and people asking me/others how to S/R. What is soft resetting? +Soft Resetting is a method used where you save, battle, check, and repeat until you get good IVs on legends, or bred pokes. Now there are 2 types of Soft Resetting: Legendaries Bred Pokes We'll start with Legends LEGENDS To S/R a legend you will need: +A Masterball +Computer Acess +Patience +AIDs (lol jk) +An Empty Slot in your Party +A Synchronizer What is a Synchronizer? +That is a pokemon with the ability Synchronize. You place this poke at the front of your party when you battle. The nature of your synchronizer will pass to the legend more often than usual, key if you are to capture good natured legends. What do I do? +Go to the legend, if you are S/Ring Mesprit or Cresselia; good luck. Stand in front of the legend. Do NOT interact/talk/battle the legend yet. SAVE first, save twice to be safe. Then interact. The battle will commence, your synchronizer in the first slot. Throw the masterball and capture the poke. Then Check it in your party (since you have an open slot). Check the nature and then you need your computer. Use an IV calculator, not serebii's it fails, Metal Kids' is your best bet. Check its IVs. If they're superb, lucky you. If not, Turn off your DS. Restart and you will be back in front of the legend, repeat the process. This will take some patience. +If you do not have a masterball you can keep battling it, using Quick Balls and Dusk Balls. +If you have Action Replay you can use rebattle codes. Here are a few: Rebattle Dialga or Palkia 94000130 fcff0000 B21c4d28 00000000 B0000004 00000000 20001138 00000003 20001273 00000000 20001284 000000c9 D2000000 00000000 Rebattle Cresselia or Giratina 94000130 FCFF0000 B21C4D28 00000000 B0000004 00000000 20001295 00000000 D2000000 00000000 Rebattle Regigigas 94000130 fcff0000 B21c4d28 00000000 B0000004 00000000 20001294 00000000 D2000000 00000000 Rebattle Uxie or Azelf or Mesprit 94000130 fcff0000 B21c4d28 00000000 B0000004 00000000 20001144 00000000 20001287 0000000c D2000000 00000000 That's about it. Don't settle for less then double 28+ in the important stats, unless you have like 25+ Everywhere. Good Luck! BRED POKES ***Credit to Jimbo for teaching me how to do this*** You can use the same process for bred pokes IF you have AR. It is similar to breeding. You can use this instead of Quick Hatch. What will I need? +An Action Replay So you have your 2 pokes in the daycare, makin' babies. Ride up and down 'till you get an Egg. For this part you need to have Quick Hatch ON. Instead of talking to the Day Care Man, go up to him and SAVE! Then interact, take the egg, and Hatch it. Check the Gender, Ability, and Nature. If you like them, turn off your game. If not, keep going till you get what you want. If you do, however, move on. Turn fast hatch OFF and turn IV check ON. Go back in the game and get the egg. Click 'X' then 'Pokemon'. Now click the egg and choose 'SUMMARY' while holding down 'SELECT' and 'START'. Then press 'B' till you get to the screen that has the 'BAG' option. click it and look at your TMs. These are the IVs of the egg in this order: Hit Points/ Attack/ Defense/ SPEED/ Special Attack/ SPECIAL DEFENSE The egg has the same Nature, Gender, and Ability as the previous one, the only thing that changes are the IVs. If you don't like the IVs, reset and try again.
