Default How is this happening?

Yesterday, I decided I'd try to soft-reset for a shiny Lapras, and by the time it was about 11:00 p.m. or so, I decided to call it quits. I didn't leave the cave, figuring I'd make my way out in the morning. However, just a few minutes ago I turned my game back on and somehow...Lapras is still there. I've reset a few more times, and it still stays.

I don't really know about the effects of soft-resetting much, since this is the first time I've tried it, and I also can't say I'm complaining, but does anyone know why Lapras is still around even though it's Saturday?

I'm not exactly sure, but I'd guess it's because you saved while Lapras is there, so when you put it back on, it can't just disappear. I'd guess that if you walked out and back into the room, it'd probably be gone.

I'm guessing the Lapras event is only triggered when the area is entered. Therefore, when you save, the event is still technically occurring as it has started, yet hasn't ended.
