Does loading the save state work in soft resetting? I’ve been at it for days trying to get shiny treecko on Alpha Sapphire and I can’t get it.

Save States load the entirety of what has been emulated at the time of saving. This means that if the shiny encounter rate is determined by what has been played before, then you can’t get it through that. If the shiny rate is determined by a percentage check before an encounter, then it should be possible. It would be better to ask this in a pokemon related community. They’d be more likely to have already tested this out.
