Catching does give you a better chance of continuing the chain, at least in gen 4. Normally you'd have an 82% chance of running into the same Pokemon if you go into a patch that's four spaces away, but if you catch the Pokemon and go into a patch four spaces away directly afterwards, you have a 92% chance of continuing the chain. Hopefully it still works here.
