Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire
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. If the player is already riding the Acro Bike, then using this item causes the player to resume walking.
Riding the Acro Bike or Mach Bike is required on the Seaside Cycling Road. Unlike the Mach Bike, if the player rides on Seaside Cycling Road with the Acro Bike, their time won't be recorded, due to the bicycle being "easy to turn" in comparison.
Hold B Button (less than 2 seconds): standing wheelie
Hold B Button (more than 2 seconds): bunny hop
Hold B, then +Control Pad: moving wheelie or bunny hop
Press B and +Control Pad direction (perpendicular to direction of travel) simultaneously: sideways hop
Press B and +Control Pad direction (opposite to direction of travel) simultaneously: hops and reverses direction
When this item is used, the player simply starts riding the regular Bicycle (unless the player is any place where riding the Bicycle is not allowed). If the player is already riding the Bicycle, then using this item causes the player to resume walking (unless the player is in the Cycling Road, where riding the Bicycle is required).
When the player attempts to enter the Cycling Road, the game specifically checks for the event flag indicating that the player has received the Bicycle from the Miracle Cycle shop in Cerulean City. As a result, if the player has the Acro Bike but has never received the regular Bicycle from Miracle Cycle, the player will still be unable to enter the Cycling Road.
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.
