i'll settle for second or even third best nature for the sake of a playthrough. uninterested in soft-resetting for shininess though. :\ depending on whether or not it's easy to complete the regional dex of bdsp, i might as well go for that, get shiny charm, get myself a foreign ditto and then start MMing, best case scenario.
I'll hold out for a starter with a good enough nature before settling on it, as is usually the case when I pick a starter. Don't want to be starting the game with a Modest Turtwig.
I've never reset for a shiny starter, and never will. Would be way too time consuming, and I'd probably be able to beat the game about fifty times over in the time it would take to get a shiny starter (and that shiny starter would inevitably be a Modest Turtwig)
I've never bothered to reset for a shiny, nor nature, but I have my diamond game has a piplup with terrible nature/stats, which sure is a struggle. So....if I get something poor for my turtwig I'll be resetting for a better nature <-<;;
No to shiny, but will probably do a few resets for a decent nature. Even if the main story in Pokémon games tend to be very easy, it'd still be a little sad to me to have a Piplup with a nature of....Impish for example (-sp. attack). Would prefer a +sp. attack or neutral nature. Otherwise it will eat away at me for a while! lol
I think for BDSP I'm actually gonna try completely forgetting all that and just enjoy completing the game, exploring the region and working on the dex without caring about Natures, IVs, EVs and so on. So no soft resetting for me!
