In some instances, multiple wild Pokémon will appear at once. From Generation IV onward, if the player is accompanied by another Pokémon Trainer they can encounter [[Double Battle]]s in the wild. In Generation V, there is the chance of two Pokémon appearing at once in {{DL|Tall grass|dark grass}}. In [[Generation VI]], [[horde Encounter|hordes of five Pokémon]] may appear. In [[Generation VII]], a wild Pokémon can [[SOS Battle|call for an ally]], turning the battle into a 2-on-1 scenario. In all instances, all but one of the Pokémon will have to be defeated before that one can be caught.
