Question will going into the menu and changingmy pokemon will resest it.
if i accidently break the chain is it a smarter idea to soft reset or start over?


Going into the main menu will not reset your chain; changing your lead Pokemon will not reset your chain. And, yes, it is a good idea to soft reset after you've broken your chain. Why waste the repels?

The reason i asked the second question is soft reseting changes the rng calculation.
so i wasn't sure if that would lower my chance of seeing a shiny.

I know it wouldn't break the chain because i tested it many times and i kept finding flabebe so i knew my chain was fine the only time i broke the chain i THOUGHT the grass was shaking fast and loud and was mistaken.

The weird thing is the whole pokeradar rules i saw i never had issuse of breaking a chain by using the borders of the field.

Yeah, some of those rules may simply be superstition at this point; however, it's best to stick by them to increase your overall chances. As a matter of fact, the sparkled patch was on a border, so you may be on to something.

Still though, around 30-40 chains, it's not worth the risk. Stick to the 4 in one direction, 1-3 in another, rule.
