The Acro Bike travels at the same speed as regular bicycles (10.67 steps per second in Generation VI), but it also allows players to perform tricks, such as wheelies and bunny hops, which let players reach special areas. It can also be used for traveling on white rails found on Route 119 and in the Hoenn Safari Zone.
The Bicycle was introduced as an Item card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English XY Series (the Japanese XY Era). First released in the Primal Clash expansion, it was later featured in the Japanese The Best of XY collection. When played, the Arco Bike allows the player to look at the top two cards in their deck. The player then chooses one of those cards and puts it in their hand. The remaining card is discarded.
