Soft resetting for a shiny starter

Is it really worth it, or should I just trade for a shiny Delta Charmander?

It’s easier to just breed it later once you get delta ditto.

Probably, but I wanted to start out my journey with one.

Well, you’re most likely not gonna be able to trade for one easily as they’re pretty desirable. I’d suggest hunting it yourself.

You’re probably right… Wish me luck.
