Broken Hidden Grotto in Murk Forest

I am trying to finish my pokedex but I need Chimchar and whenever I go back to the grotto it spawns in every 12 hrs and after walking a ton it still doesn’t reset. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this happens or is willing to trade me a Chimchar?

I have never changed my clock so it shouldn’t be the problem.

If you ever went in the grotto and left without picking up the item or interacting with the mon inside then that likely broke it.

Also you can still get a Chimchar by catching a Monferno in the friend safari then breeding it.

that requires a fire type area and I have a water type unfortunately

You can visit other peoples safaris

That page has safaris for every mon that can be there

oh you can? that’s great thanks for telling me.
