A pi bond happens when two sets of electron orbitals involved in the bond overlap. A common example occurs in benzene. They are seen in resonance structures with different locations of double and triple bonds.
The easiest way to spot delocalized pi-bonding is in lewis structures that display resonance structures, as the pi-bond can move around and is therefore "delocalized." Just remember delocalized as not being local to one specific point in the structure.
