If You Don't See The Pokemon You're Looking For, Go To An Empty Area

If you go to an area where a mass outbreak is occurring, the Mass Outbreak will remain the same. If the Pokemon that you are targeting is not appearing, go to an Empty Area to reset. If you are not aiming for anything you can either go to an empty area or go back to the village.

You Can Only Reset A Few Times Randomly

Even if you return to the mass outbreak in the target area, if another Pokemon's mass outbreak flag is set, the mass outbreak of the target Pokemon will be overridden. The amount of times the targeted Pokemon's mass breakout occurs is determined at random.

You Can Start Over When You Save Data

You can resume the game and start over if you store the save data with the location of the Mass Outbreak, even if you switch to another Pokemon. Don't forget to turn off the auto save feature so it doesn't save automatically.

Avoid Battles As Much As Possible

Battles during Mass Outbreaks are basically many vs. one, and you are likely to be at a numerical disadvantage. Because of this, unless you have a very powerful Pokemon, avoiding battle is recommended.
