Sometimes, hordes of different kinds of Pokemon appear. Taurous and Miltank are actually male and female forms of each other, so I suppose this makes sense.

Another horde with two types of Pokemon in is Durant and Heatmor hordes. They are natural enemies, so they attack each other instead of your Pokemon! Its quite funny if you find one of these hordes.

So no, this is not a glitch. I hope I helped!

its not a "rare chance" though. a tauros horde will always have a miltank

A Tauros horde on Route 12 will always include one Miltank.

why does the Bulba page say "Rare, with Tauros" then?
it means that the horde itself is rare, but when it appears, it will always include (X). a miltank horde for example, is hard to find, but it will still always have a tauros and vice-versa

It's not a glitch, you have a rare chance of finding a Tauros horde, Tauros hordes always have a Miltank as the 4th Pokemon in a horde in route 12. (other routes have that aswell, e.g: Route 20 a horde of Trevenant with a Sudowoodo)

Source (you see how under "hordes it says Miltank, rare with tauros? that's what it means.)
