I was wondering if you could soft reset for a shiny one.
I read on Bulbapedia that "However this isn't always true in Generation V, since multiple events have been released that can be Shiny. The odds are still the same as encountering a Shiny wild Pokémon (1/8192). If the Wonder Card data has a special flag enabled the game will keep a Shiny PID instead of altering it."
Does the Plasma Deoxys alter the PID if it is shiny, or could you Soft reset for one?
