Horde Encounters

 
Last Updated:
Horde encounters are introduced in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, and now they're back in Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Pokemon Omega Ruby.

In Horde battles, a single Pokémon from your team will have to fight a group of wild Pokémon. Winning these encounters provide tons of EXP and faster EV (Effort value) accumulation for the Pokemon you used but don't underestimate these encounters. The Pokemon in the Horde team may be lower leveled than you but they take individual turns. This means your Pokemon will get attacked several times before it can retaliate. Having moves that can target multiple enemies is the best way to eliminate all opposition.




The list of locations and Pokemon you'll meet in Horde encounters are listed below. List courtesy of Serebii.net.

Horde Trainer Battles!
Now you can fight five trainers at once in Pokemon AS/ OR. The mechanics are pretty much the same with the wild horde encounters where the enemies are much lower-leveled than your Pokemon's average level and you'll still get tons of EXP for winning the battle.
