Hmm…as Zloth said regular enemies in XCOM (vanilla or not) do patrol and don't get a free shot at you. The only enemies I ever saw "pop up" were during special missions when you started an escort or something similar that triggered the appearance of hostile aliens. These enemies would appear out of nowhere in overwatch mode during the alien turn, and because they were in overwatch they could shoot at you if you moved into range on your own turn. They were pretty uncommon and easy to deal with though.
