In Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum: Edge case
If a [[Pokémon outbreak|swarm]] or other special type of encounter ends while a chain is in progress, the Pokémon will remain available as part of the chain until it is broken.
If the Poké Radar forces a Pokémon to be Shiny due to its increased odds, the game will construct a [[personality value]] that fulfills the Shininess requirement.<ref>[ The Process of PID and IV Creation of Non-Bred Pokemon - Smogon University]</ref> It is possible, although very unlikely, for multiple Shiny patches to appear on one reset.<!-- There's a Smogon link and Youtube video somewhere that shows this, but I can't find it right now...--> Entering a Shiny patch will never break a chain, but if it is in a position where the game can select invalid patches for all four new patches, it may break after. It is always possible for non-flashing patches to contain a Shiny Pokémon as well due to the normal, completely random chance of a Pokémon being Shiny.
One of the functions of the [[Pokétch]] is to {{DL|Pokétch|Trainer Counter|display the current chain}} and the three best chains made so far.
