Horde Encounters

Horde Encounters are a new kind of wild Encounter where a horde of Pokémon appear and challenge you. These Pokémon can be anything from a group of one species of Pokémon, to a conglomeration of a couple that work togehter such as Miltank & Tauros, or who turn on eachother such as Seviper & Zangoose. These battles typically have the Pokémon at a significantly lower level so as to not overpower you, but it is essentially one-sided, requiring moves which take out the entire field to be at hand. You can cause them to occur by using Honey or Sweet Scent

All multi hit moves are calculated as if you're in the middle of a triple battle, but with two enemies at your side rather than allies. You can only capture Pokémon after you have defeated four of the five. In addition to this, there is the slight chance that one or more Pokémon in the Horde can have their Hidden Ability

Battle Mechanics

The mechanics of Horde Battles may seem daunting at first, but in actuality, the move targeting system works akin to Triple Battles. In this scenario, the moves act as if you are in the middle of a Triple Battle and so if you need to target moves accordingly. Moves like Surf will hit all opponents while others will just hit the middle three.

If you're trying to take out specific Pokémon in order to capture one, they go left to right from the screen and are matched clockwise from your position in the targeting screen.

Multiple Hordes

When you have a horde encounter, you will not always see five of the same Pokémon. In these circumstances, you will see four of one Pokémon and one of another. In these situations, you will often find a variety of special instances. For example, in hordes of Seviper/Zangoose and Heatmor/Durant, the species that are the more plentiful will attack the one Pokémon. In others, the Pokémon will help boost eachother.

These battles are only located in certain places and are as follows
