A few days ago I had a Horde Battle versus 4 Zangooses and 1 Seviper. I took one of the Zangooses out, but then something weird happened. The three remaining Zangooses started attacking the lone Seviper, taking it out before it can even move. Is there any other Pokemon who fight like this?

maybe that's because of the well-known Zangoose-Seviper feud mentioned in practically ever pokedex entry. I've never seen it among any horde battles I have had though.
Currently it is unknown. There are a select few with these type of encounters. The ones I have seen so far are: Zangoose and Seviper and Plusle and Minun
That's quite odd. I don't think that's supposed to happen, cuz horde battles are described as you sending one pokemon against five wild ones.
Same thing happened to me I was like what the.

This only happens in two scenarios, and both of these scenarios involve two species of Pokemon that dislike each other. This only happens when there is:

  • A Zangoose horde with one Seviper or vice versa:
    -Zangoose Pokedex Entry (Black 2/White 2): It’s Seviper’s archrival. To threaten those it encounters, it fans out the claws on its front paws.
    -Seviper Pokedex Entry (Black 2/White 2): Constant polishing makes the edge of the blade on its tail extremely sharp. It’s Zangoose’s archrival.
  • A Heatmor horde with one Durant or vice versa:
    -Heatmor Pokedex Entry (White): Using their very hot, flame-covered tongues, they burn through Durant’s steel bodies and consume their insides.
    -Durant Pokedex Entry (Black 2/White 2): Individuals each play different roles in driving Heatmor, their natural predator, away from their colony.


Note: Some Pokemon may also be found in a horde of another species, but the only time where they will fight each other is in the above scenarios.

Hope I helped!

No. The only one that does this is Seviper and Zangoose. In some encounters you can find a minun with plusles in a horde encounter.

Yes, I have seen four Durant fight against one Heatmor in a Horde encounter in route 18 in Pokemon Y, maybe in Pokemon X is the other way.
