I keep checking the Pokedex and flying to where it says he is and when I get there he is somewhere completely different and then I fly over there and it just goes on and on...

How exactly do I encounter him enough times so he retreats to the Sea cave/den?

Yeah, if you use fly the location changes. Gotta walk there.

I chased zapdos as well, I believe you encounter it 11 times before it flies to the Sea Spirit's Den. Here's what I noticed when walking to it. If you walk through a town it stays in its route, but if you walk from town to another town to try to get to it, it will fly again. This is what I did:

Fly to the city with the daycare next to it, I kept walking from the daycare route, into the town, into the other route to the right, then back to the town again and check my pokedex. I kept doing this until it appeared in the routes next to the town I was in. Then I would just walk to the left or right route and encounter it. Worked fairly quickly for me. About an hour of work while I threw something on tv in the background lol.

Sorry for the lack o route names as i dont have my ds on at the time but good thing fly tells you which route the daycare is on when you move the arrow. I hope this helps someone catch those elusive birds

Also note: If you walk to its location sometimes it wont appear on the first wild encounter. If you battle or catch, it also makes the bird fly away to another location i noticed, so just run from the wild battles until the bird challenges you

11 times. Pick areas like Lumiose that can get to multiple nearby areas fairly quickly. Do NOT fly (unless you are trying to reset the legendary's position)
