Though I'll do both, I'd SR for the shiny starter since I'll use him/her for a longer time.

Either is fine with me as long as its one of the 2.

I would soft reset for a shiny Totodile because I like his shiny color better then the other Jhoto starters. Ho-oh looks better to me the way he is too.

I still don't understand why somebody would want to sit there are reset their game again and again, possibly hundreds of times, for a shiny Pokemon. There's really nothing better about a shiny Pokemon.

Personally i don't like this regions starters. But if i was i would get a Cyndaquil. I wouldn't get a shiny ho-oh though

I've never had any success with soft resetting my game. Usually after about 15-20 resets I lose interest.

i can never be bothered by shinies if one appears randomly i'll catch it but i don't go looking for them i mean they are just a different colour.

I'd go for neither. I tried SRing one day, and I got incredibly bored after literally the first two times (even though I kept doing it for another 126 more times).

Most of the time, shinies are uglier than the original, and SRing for them, to me anyway, makes them less special than ones found randomly in the wild.

I agree with gef on this, I honestly don't see the point in soft resetting hundreds, possibly even thousands of times for a shiny Ho-Oh, let alone a shiny starter.

If it's a Pokemon I intend to use throughout the game, I'll soft reset until I get the desired Nature and IV, and even then I probably wouldn't make more than a dozen or so attempts before turning off the game out of sheer boredom.

Neither. If I wanted a shiny pokemon, I'll just clone one of the ones I already have, then trade for a different one.

If i really really wanted a Shiny Starter i wouldn't sit down and restart my game hundreds of times for it, i would just get an action replay and cheat for a level 5 starter and it wouldn't be limited to just this gen... it could be from any gen! The possibilities are endless
