I usually SR a few times, but probably not much. Depends on how long the cutscene before starter selection is. If it's long I'll probably only reset a few times to get a good/neutral nature. If it's really short, like 30 seconds or less, I may do a bit more. Certainly not more than a couple dozen times.

No, but I'm definitely restarting if I get a female Starter or a Starter with a lame nature.

Hell no. Shinies aren’t as interesting as they used to be since they’re so easy to obtain now. I might do it for other pokemon, but that depends on the shiny colour

I'll reset for nature, but that's it. The chance to hit a shiny frame is so low I would never bother looking for a shiny outside of the alternate methods.

You think they won't? LGPE was hacked day 1. No reason to think Sword/Shield won't be.

Kinda, but not really. I'm going to be trying for a female starter, which considering the gender ratio for starters will likely mean it will take me a while unless I get lucky. If I happen to get a shiny while doing it then of course I'll take it, even if it's male.
You can't fool me, 'cause I'm a moron!
