Soft resetting for shiny starter worth it?

Really just looking for opinions here. I reset a few times to get a jolly nature for my totodile but now I'm considering resetting for a shiny starter of any type. I beat falkner and am just wandering around the route before union cave.

Just trying to get some opinions to see if potentially soft resetting for hours is worth it.

You can soft reset for DAYS and not get a shiny.

You could soft reset FOREVER and not get a shiny, in reality.

It depends on how badly you want it.

I'd much rather break my moral beliefs and hack the game than sit there soft resetting for eternity.

Haha thanks for the push in the rational direction guys.

I would say just stick with what you've got. Next thing you know, you get a shiny with a nature that you absolutely did NOT want...
