Running Shoes

The XY player actually is wearing Running Shoes (at least according to a Hiker in the west house in Vaniville).
'''Running Shoes''' (Japanese: '''ランニングシューズ''' ''Running Shoes'') are a piece of equipment developed by the [[Devon Corporation]]. They were introduced in {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s}} and are used in all standard [[Generation III]], [[Generation IV]], and [[Generation V]] games.
The Running Shoes are typically received shortly after the beginning of the game. In {{3v2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}}, and {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, the Running Shoes are given by the player's [[mom|mother]] before they leave on the journey. In {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, their [[mom]] sends them to the player via one of [[Professor Oak]]'s aides, who is met in [[Pewter City]], right before entering {{rt|3|Kanto}} and after battling [[Brock]]. In {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, they are given by the old man who gives the player a tour of [[Cherrygrove City]]. In {{game|Black and White|s}}, they are given by the player's mother after the player first ventures onto {{rt|2|Unova}}. In {{game|Black and White|s|4=2}}, they are given by the player's mother after the player is introduced to the [[Pokémon Center]] by [[Bianca]]. In {{2v2|X|Y}}, although the playerRunning canShoes runare withoutno thelonger necessitya ofdistinct item, the Runningplayer Shoesis still wearing them (as noted by a {{tc|Hiker}} in [[Vaniville Town]]) and can use their running ability at any time.
The Running Shoes allow the {{player}} [[Transportation in the Pokémon world|to run]] instead of walk when they hold the B button and press the D-pad in any direction. In {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, this method is overhauled and replaced with a panel on the lower screen that, when touched with the stylus, automatically puts on the Running Shoes, allowing the player to run without having to hold the B button. However, there are a few places that cannot be run through, such as very tall, thick grass or deep snow. Most caves and routes, though, as well as some buildings, will allow for running inside of them. In [[Generation IV]], instead of being limited to certain buildings as in [[Generation III|past games]], all buildings allow running, but deep snow is added in which one can sometimes run but never bike.
