As far as wild pokemon encounters go...

Do you like to see them happen often or rarely? As for me, if im in the mood to find wild pokemon, then by god i'll run around in the grass for a few seconds, but encountering them every 3 steps when on a bike like in HG/SS is a big no-no. To me, something Gen V did right was the speed and pace of the game in general. It made it almost excruciating for me to go back and play older games because of how slow some are, especially FR/LG and HG/SS. Im hoping the wild encounter rate is lower again in Gen VI as it'll be much more enjoyable

If you don't want to run into any pokemon just use a repel...

The more encounters the more likely you will find a shiny pokemon.

i'd like a "fight this pokemon?" option before throwing my pokemon after the wild pokes - especially for low level ones, or for ones i can outspeed and run away from

In HG/SS, riding a bike results in a higher-than-normal encounter rate, and walking (instead of running) results in a lower-than-normal encounter rate.
