Instead, all Pokémon are shown on the field, a la Earthbound, Chrono Trigger, or for a more recent example, Dragon Quest IX. Each Pokemon would just be prancing along in the tall grass, and if one sees you, they dash toward you and a battle starts if it makes contact.
This would be easier than ever to do, since separate battle and field sprites wouldn't be needed.
