Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Does resetting the level before 100 encounters in ORAS chaining necessarily mean it's been broken?

Alright, been chaining on Mirage Island for Minccino for a while now. My Minccino encounters were up to around a level 54-56 average (its default is 36-38) when I get a "Pokemon not Found. Try another area." As I attempt to find another place to find one, a Minccino pops up as I'm walking. Its level has been reset to 38.

According to a question earlier asked by me, as long as I officially encounter the Minccino, kill it, and continue searching for them, the chain will not be broken, but I would like confirmation...because I think the level resets automatically around 100 but I wasn't sure I had made it that far.

heres a link to it, I just read his description and used my common sense, so it means that You DID break your chain
and Pokemon could not be found means THE CHAIN IS BROKEN

can you link me to that video?
oh and just to make sure, " a Minccino pops up as I'm walking" means that one popped its head out of the grass, not a literal encounter happened.
that's going to make it impossible to chain for SOME things....
