Oh my goodness, thank you so much!!! So, I'd have to save (within the game instead of a save state in desmume) then just restart it like you would in a normal soft reset and load the in-game save? Just making sure it still works in Desmume!! smile smile smile thank you!

Hello, so I am currently playing Pokemon Platinum, using Desmume. I am trying to catch a shiny Uxie.

I have a save state right before the encounter with Uxie. I encounter, see no shiny, then hit F1 and reset the save state to before the encounter. Does this constitute as a "Soft Reset"?? As in, will this method even work since I am not technically loading the actual games "save"? Any help would be appreciated.

Hey Sophia! I personally tested this. You will never get a shiny Uxie reloading savestates. The result you'll get is the same identical Uxie every time, instead of rerolling it with a proper soft reset. Hope this helps!

Thank you for this but this really wasn't the main question and doesn't help me in my situation.

this is not a "soft reset" by anyone's standards.

a soft reset would normally be a button press combination (L+R+START+SELECT for instance but pokemon may have its own sequence).
