I did the same thing. You can get back, it's just hard to find. I found it by holding the button that makes you fly downward and just hovering over the mountain until it popped up.

I was researching about encountering Shiny Pokémon by PokéRadar Chaining. I ended up two sources slightly expressing different informations.

According to the serebii.net, once a different Pokémon than before is found with DexNav, the chain will be broken.

"These chains are broken when a different Pokémon appears[...]"
- serebii.net/games/shiny.shtml

Yet another source clearly says that once a Pokémon that we don't want a shiny form appears, all we have to do is to defeat it and not running and therefore the chain won't be broken.

Both, are correct.

But the one from heavy.com is refering to chain fishing and not dexnav.

So...
With Chain Fishing Different Pokémon = Chain Continues
With Dexnav Different Pokémon = Chain Ends

How many Pokemon are available in both OR/AS & X/Y?

All Pokémon, except for Mythical Pokémon. This means that the Shiny Charm is obtainable with just these 4 games.

just keep in mind the legendary bird trio depends on your starter in X/Y, so it requires more than just one save file per game, or some trading.

Question, kinda XY help also but figured I'd ask in this forum.

What method is faster to get a 3 IV (more is nice but 3 iv is fine) adamant ditto? Dexnav levelling from 5 or using the friend safari? I have almost all natures from friend safari with 3 iv and all I'm missing is an adamant one. I won't really use dexnav for ditto again after I get that 3 iv adamant one (so using that as an "investment" for more sittos is useless).

Probably the Dexnav, Friend Safari Ditto are only guaranteed to have at least 2 perfect IVs.

Hmmm, but with 2 IV guaranteed for sure all the time (and NOT getting a useless stat in SAtk), that means a 1/11 ish chance for a 3rd perfect stat (by the odds) and a 50% chance at nature with a 1/3 chance of finding a ditto (3 pokemon in a safari, I assume 1/3 odds).

Would't that make a (5/6*4/5)*(1/11)*0.5*(1/3) chance at the ideal ditto in a friend safari? Making that about a 1%~ chance every encounter in the friend safari?

Meanwhile with Dexnav I'd need to search at LEAST 100ish times for even decent odds, when in addition it takes MORE time to do a dexnav search battle than running in a circle? Like, the nav doesn't always find something, and you're wasting time running in circles again when you could have had like 2-3 more chances with the safari encounters. Or, is it true I can have NORMAL encounters with ditto to raise the search level, then use dexnav encounters once it's hit the 3 IV potential range?

Yeah, every time you fight a Ditto, the search level is raised. Doing it like that seems like the most sensible way to me.

So I feel silly...been MMing again for Buneary on OR but I checked and my Ditto doesn't have the JPn next to it's name! I do have a Japanese entry in my dex, and the OT seems foreign, so will this Ditto work for Masuda Method? Thanks!

The best odds for Shiny breeding: two different language pokes + Shiny Charm. This reduces the odds to 1:512 or something close to this.

Meaning - I play on an English OR game. I have a JPN female, GER male, & Shiny Charm. The Pokémon must have the language/country of origin stamp in their summary. Doesn't matter what your Dex says you have. What matters is what you put in the daycare.

is it possible to get multiple colored scarves in ORAS or is a item per save file?

Hopefully someone can help me. For battlers, I'm wondering what are general good teammates or types for a team with greninja and garchomp mega? Not gonna go into detail on their strats as things I think up are unique and not meta, but just wondering what you'd bring in with them for singles.

I'm also wondering what are meta/popular counters to garchomp and greninja. Things I have to look out for. An obvious one is ice on garchomp, but anything else for it and greninja?

This is something I just randomly remembered, but weren't there seperate Battle Spot leagues for each pair of Gen VI games? Like, XY and ORAS had their own leagues and their own rules? That was their way of compensating for the ORAS Megas not being in XY?

I believe it only happened for Free Battles so that a copy of X or Y doesn't run into a copy of ORAS. X and Y allowed the use of both pentagon Pokémon and Pokémon transferred from previous games but ORAS only allowed pentagon Pokémon. The purpose was to compensate for X and Y not getting the ORAS Megas, Primal Reversions and the moves introduced in ORAS.
