In X and Y: Wrong format
===In X and Y===
After being absent in Generation V, the Poké Radar returns in Pokémon X and Y. It is received by the player once he or she has defeated the Elite Four, by talking to the male {{tc|scientist}} on the top right of the second floor of Professor Sycamore's Lab in [[Lumiose City]].
The Poké Radar cannot be used while using the [[Bicycle]] or [[Roller Skates]]. If the player uses either while chaining (including using the circle pad instead of the D-pad), the chain is reset, and the Poké Radar must be recharged. It also cannot be used in the [[Friend Safari]]. However, it can be used in flower beds the same way as in tall grass.
Chains and other specific mechanics are believed to be similar to that of Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum; differences include the possibility of more than 4 patches of grass shaking at once, as well as the possibility of a grass patch failing to contain any wild Pokémon at all (thus automatically breaking the chain). It has also been verified that the Poké Radar music can change to a more upbeat tune; this is believed but not proven to increase the Shiny encounter rate. More exact details are currently unknown.

{{incomplete|section|Confirmation of lengths and all items}}
The scientist at the Pokémon Lab will give items depending on the player's highest chain length of the Pokémon he requests data of that day. The player can earn more than one item at once, but each different item is only given once per day.
