    I'm sure there's a way you can RNG abuse it to make it easier and take less time. Just straight soft resetting is a pain.

    RNG stands for Random Number Generator. Computers can't create purely random results - they have to use some sort of pattern, and people like to study Pokemon's coding to figure out what the pattern is for things like Pokemon generation. It has to do with the timing of starting up your game, and the time setting in your DS.

    If you do a little research, you can find some ways to help control what the stats and nature of the Pokemon, and it'll take only a few tries instead of several hundreds or thousands of soft resets.

    Hopefully some other forum members have some resources to help you get started! :D

    I think you can reset for a different nature. Not 100% sure, but I think so.

    When it comes to the grottos in the game, the Pokemon cannot be changed, but according to Serebii, you can reset to change the nature, so I would think perhaps natures are the only thing that can always be affected by a reset.

    according to Serebii I looked it is any Nature so yeah you can RNG it to the Nature you want.

    This was true in BW1. In BW2, the RNG is a lot harder to hit, so it's not unusual for it to take 20+ tries. If the only thing you're going for is nature (as opposed to IVs/ability/etc) it's probably easier and faster just to reset for it.
