Was the Principle behind the 'Rustling Grass" Patches?

What is the deal behind the rustling grass patch stuff? People say that you can see a shaking grass patch to get rarer pokemon or something, but I have been playing for about 4-5 hours, have my 1st badge and am working on my 2nd, and I have never seen it.

What's the deal with this shaking grass stuff? Does it actually get you better pokemon and how rare is it?

It is fairly rare. Sometimes while just walking you may notice grass rustilng, dirt in caves springing up, or a shadow with bubble on water. If you walk onto these before you encounter a battle then you can battle a rare pokemon (usually tabunne, moguryu/doryuuzu, and mamanbou respectively) or sometimes recieve an item. I've played for about 20 hours and I've only seen about a dozen times for all three combined. Its all about luck I guess.

They're not really rare... You just have to walk around until the grass patch starts shaking. I did this in order to train my pokemon on wild Tabunnes. I had the grass in view and just walked around outside of the grass until i saw a patch shake. Then i went towards it and encountered Tabunnes... It's the same thing in caves, water, and bridges.

They usually have Tabunne, but rarely you can find fully evolved pokemon and other rare ones. (Even pokemon who normally need a stone to evolve).

Wild Tyranitars, Metagross and Dragonites.

^ huh, ok thats kind of encouraging. because I tried just running around to see it, and all of a sudden the water started bubbling. But of course this early in the game, I can't do anything about it.

Anyways, what kinds of pokemon (or items? someone mentioned) coincide with the rustling grass?

To access the grass much easier is dependent on the steps you take, so to increase the chances of getting more pokemon in shaking grass you'll need to walk faster IE riding your bicycle.

I've seen Tabunnes (of course) and once i did see an Emonga. I have yet to find an item in the grass or water though. In the cave i find a lot of those "jewels" and on bridges i find those "wings". Also here's a list that serebii has: http://serebii.net/blackwhite/wildchanges.shtml

You can get the monkeys as well as doreida/erufuun in the first forest too. Emonga pops up occasionally along some routes too. But yeah as said before, wild dragonite, tyranitar and metagross is pretty awesome.
