Your first shiny pokemon

Hey guys, a question:

I'm about to play through White Version for the first time, and I'm really hoping for a shiny larvesta when I hatch that larvesta egg you get.

If I save before I hatch it, can I keep exiting the game, opening the save file, and hatching it again until I get it to be shiny? (Sorry if this is a noob question, I have pretty much zero experience with shinies and how you get them!)

Hatch the egg and grind for a shiny.

I don't recall every seeing a shiny among the many years I've played Pokemon games. Though I did catch Pokerus twice -_-'

Which means...soft resetting?

Nope. Get the Larvesta and keep making eggs with it.

Use a japanese Ditto for better results.

Ah, gotcha. Does soft resetting work, though? (Thanks for the tips!)

Wow, this topic reminded me of a dream I had just last night where I was playing Pokemon and I caught a 5th gen shiny. I can't remember what it was though...>_>

I remember there was some green to it. But I just looked at a list of 5th gen pokemon and none of them clicked. Meh. =x

I've played all games up from ruby, never caught a shiny. I've found and caught a shiny on my brothers ruby like a year ago though, he still won't let me have it. ),:

The first shiny Pokemon I saw was a shiny Onix in Silver Version. Unfortunately, since I didn't know what a shiny was, I thought my game was corrupted so I turned it off. The first shiny I caught was a shiny Zubat in Ruby.
