I transfered my Manaphy egg over today and hatched it. I got about the worst nature you could expect to get on a Manaphy - Lonely, +Atk -Def. I didn't know you could soft reset - I'm assuming that's before you speak to the guy in the pokemart?
Ah well, atleast hes in my dex now.
Also is it true that you can only get one Manaphy per game? i.e. if I delete my Ranger game I still wont be able to get another Manaphy? or can I get another if I complete Ranger again??
