However, those who don’t want to explore, simply reset their progress before each encounter in the hope to get a shiny version of the pokemon they want, but Pokemon Scarlet & Violet devs are one step ahead of this. Keeping in mind the soft reset process that many players spam to get a shiny version, Game Freak(devs) has implemented a shiny locked feature that assures you won’t be able to get a shiny version of those pokemon by resetting your in-game progress.
