Horde Encounters are a feature that were first introduced in Pokémon X & Y. In these battles in the wild, you will face up against 5 wild Pokémon at the same time. This helps you build up a large amount of Experience Points and also aids in the training of Pokémon's Effort Values
Like before, Hordes can often provide all of the same species, and even sometimes introduce one Pokémon into the horde which is different to the others.
We'll provide a full list of all horde encounters, including what Effort Values are given, shortly after launch.
