    What do you think of the new horde battles?
    Horde battles are basically 5 wild pokemon against one of your own pokemon.
    I am personally excited for them! Extra chance to get shiny! *squee*
    Also, it seems like a good way to shake up the grinding.

        Will they all be levels lower than your pokemon? Because one vs five pokemon of the same level seems a bit unfair

              My God the idea of Hordes is awesome. But seeing the number disadvantage anyone can get : How are we suppose to fight a 5 Pokemon Gang with let us say Lv 5 Pokes versus our own Lv 5 Starter???

              Just heard this news..... great way to level up Pokemon fast, great idea - really love this idea. Just hope the "5 on 1" is bit lowered level than my Pokemon - wouldn't want to be struggling with a 5 on 1 especially with a type disadvantage Pokemon.

              I think it's a really interesting idea! The fact that you get more XP is great, since usually wild battles don't really help that much when grinding Pokemon. I also like the challenge it poses, i just hope it's not going to be a little bit too much in the beggining of the game

                I'm absolutely loving this. I can just imagine encountering a horde and then spotting a shiny amongst them. Aaaaah, so exciting. Not to mention battling a horde would be pretty epic; especially if you beat five Pokemon with only one on the field at a time! Imagine all the experience you'd get too!

                  What if with the hordes they increased the level cap ? Since 1 vs 5 = you get lot of exp and it means faster lv 100 I could see them increasing the cap. Increasing level cap could make rebattle of trainers and gym leaders after multiple time to have pokemons over level 100, just look how hard the latest Elite 4 would be if they were level 200.

                    I can see it being a thing that it's only available in limited areas of the game. Otherwise the enemy horde is a bit OP, especially if you just wander into a random place where Pokemon are 3 or 4 levels higher than your own..

                      I can see a lot of new attacks being made just for the purpose of using them against hordes, as in attacks that will damage all other Pokémon in play (like the new Boomburst)

                      I love the idea, but I fear they might do the same thing as in double-battles where your character's hand-eye coordination gives out [suddenly] and you "can't aim" because there are "too many Pokemon" on the field, meaning you can't catch Pokemon in battled containing two or more Pokemon.

                      That would suck :x

                      Also, I think hordes would come later on, after you have more than just your starter, unless they horde you with Lv. 1 Pokemon.

                        This could make ev training far more easier! Especially if you don't have the right items.

                        Plus it brings out a lot more use for moves like Earthquake and surf, but as someone else mentioned above there is a problem. If hordes can happen frequently, think about all the Geodudes and Zubats swarming us every 5 seconds. @_@

                            If hordes get too annoying, I'm just going to use repels in horde areas. But something tells me that I'm going to do the opposite; ignore the 1v1 wild battles and start looking for hordes to battle!

                              So. Many. ZUBATS.

                              My initial thought was that hordes will be awesome... but after seeing that ^ I'm not so sure. However, they'll make the game a bit more challenging, and that's cool.

                              I doubt it's going to be placed in the game with the battles being impossible so it seems like a really cool addition.

                              It might finally make me bother with EV training as well which is always good. Now just remove the IV system and we have a great game on our hands.

                                I hope we can run from these, especially on the account of a possible Zubat horde.

                                Now, a horde of Audinos, on the other hand...

                                It would be nice if you could send in an extra Pokemon if you encounter a horde. I mean, if you encounter a double battle in the wild you send out a second Pokemon so it only makes sense that if you encounter more than two Pokemon you'd at least be able to send out a second one.

                                  The thought is great. An easy way to level up your pokemon! I can't wait to see it in action

                                  I like this new feature. At least the idea of it. Not sure how much we will like it in caves with Zubats and Geodudes xD But I think its really creative. The shiny chances are also most likely boosted because of this, so thats pretty sweet also.
