    Maybe it's like shaking grass -- something that happens only once in a while. It may feature the same or different Pokemon that you'd otherwise find on the route.

    What about it only happening in rustling overgrown grass and giant dust clouds? That should make them rare enough.

    I know some people seem really against these horde battles, but hopefully once they're explained a little more people will warm up? I honestly think they look like loads of fun, and when you think about it, it does make sense to have hordes. Kind of like swarms with actual swarming.
    Anyway here's a screenshot I found of the Helioptile v Zubat horde shown on Smash:

    I'm looking forward to horde battles. It seems to be a pretty exciting challenge, and it will be great to have my Pokemon test itself and face off against five wild Pokemon at once.

    On the same note, Doduo and Dodrio are going to be able to participate in Sky Battles...

    Gyarados I can understand (flying serpent thing), but Doduo/Dodrio are going to be the interesting ones.

    (On the other side of the picture, Scyther can participate but its evolution Scizor cannot.)

    The real kicker is that among the levitating pokemon are solrock lunatone and rotom. If of course all levitating pokemon fit the criteria. At least Flygon should make it in though.

    They should make some exceptions to the flying and levitate rule though. There's various Pokemon (Munna line, Magneton line, Klink line, Chandelure, Scizor, Heracross, Volcarona, Venomoth, etc) which are all perfectly capable of either flying or levitating in the same way the Pokemon that are going to be allowed can, but won't be allowed because of the rule we've been told about. I'm honestly not super sold on Sky Battles yet, not until we have a complete list of which can participate and which can't, but hopefully they allow some exceptions so that feature works to its fullest.

    Horde battles, on the other hand, I am actually pretty excited for. Not because the idea is anything amazing, but just because it seems like it could be quite fun and at least a little different and all that glorious EXP.

    Flygon has levitate though.

    Yeah that's what I mean out of the pokemon with levitate that are not flying Flygon will likely work. Still broken though cause it can learn rock type moves.

    Wait, is the "Flying-type and/or Levitate" rule actually confirmed, or is it just a theory?

    Either way.. I can't see them only going by mere typings and abilities when there are Pokemon out there that have neither but are still perfectly able to fly/levitate. I mean, a lot of non-Flying/Levitate Bug-types can fly, implying that the Flying-type is some sort of "Wind-type" that means the Pokemon is more associated with the sky/can manipulate the air/what have you etc rather than simply telling us it can fly (although I really want to see this way, I really can't, but that's for another topic).

    I really hope Sky Battles isn't based on the Flying-type or the Levitate ability alone. It would make the feature pretty.. discriminating and not based on what the Pokemon can do but instead of what the Pokemon are.

    Besides, being able to send out Scyther but not Scizor would be a bunch of BS.

    So far only part flying have been shown and gengar. However the site that broke the news along with other details of the games that are true mentions only flying types and levitate, which does seem to be the case. It makes sense cause otherwise the selection of pokemon useful for these would be too broad. Gen 5 would be the worst offender with stuff like hydreigon, volcarona, golurk, chandelure and so on.Wailord would also break the damn thing cause of its floating body.
