Some abilities have overworld effect. For example, when Pokémon with Arena Trap ability leads party, chace of encountering wild Pokémon rises to 200%. Do anyone know all the abilities having overworld effect?

Excellent question! I did some research and this is what I came up with...

Arena Trap, Illuminate, No Guard, Swarm: more likely to encounter wild pokemon
Quick Feet, Stench, White Smoke: less likely to encounter wild pokemon
Sand Veil: less likely to encounter wild pokemon, if you are in a sandstorm
Snow Cloak: less likely to encounter wild pokemon, if you are in a snowstorm

Static: more likely to encounter Electric-type pokemon
Magnet Pull: more likely to find Steel-type pokemon in the wild
Intimidate, Hustle, Keen Eye, Pressure, Vital Spirit: increases the chance of encountering a higher-level pokemon

Compoundeyes: more likely to encounter pokemon holding an item
Synchronize: 50% chance of encountering a pokemon with the same nature
Cute Charm: 66% chance of encountering a pokemon with the opposite gender

Sticky Hold, Suction Cups: higher chance of getting a bite when fishing
Pickup: the pokemon may pick up items
Honey Gather: pokemon may pick up honey
Flame Body, Magma Armor: halves the number of steps needed to hatch an egg

Thanks. It´s even greater answer than I expected:)
I would like to add Synchronize to this list as it makes any encountered Pokemon the same nature as the ability holder.
...it's already on there.
Oops, sorry, didnt notice it lol
Huh, I thought there were more over-world affecting abilities.
