What is a delocalized pi bond and when do they occur?

Delocalized pi bonds are pi bonds that can be moved around as a result of resonance structures. Resonance structures have double and triple bonds in different locations, causing the pi bonds to be delocalized. An example of a molecule with delocalized pi bonds is benzene (C6H6) as its double bonds can be rearranged, resulting in two resonance structures.
