There's Swarm Battles, but we're unsure if they're sporadic, rare, or from some strange Phenomenon such as shaking grass or whatever, media groups mentioned that catching Pokemon will give XP to the Pokemon...unsure if they mean the one you just caught, or the Pokemon you just had out.
I doubt that any Pokemon appear anywhere, wouldn't make sense to see things like a Pikachu inside a Sea route.

It's mostly like before, certain Pokemon appearing in certain areas. They just added flower patches that have different Pokemon in them than the normal grass, increasing the possible Pokemon in an area.
I expect Flabebe to be a staple of these patches.
