A '''Bicycle''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|じてんしゃ|jitensha}}''' ''Bicycle'') is a [[Key Item]] obtained in the games to facilitate [[Transportation in the Pokémon world|faster movement]]. [[Cycling Road]]s can only be navigated on while cycling. They are usually obtained from [[Bicycle Shop]]s.ItemInfobox/head
 
In [[Generation VII]], several [[Poké Ride|Ride Pokémon]] take over the role of transporting the player across the land at higher speeds, such as {{p|Tauros}} Charge.
 
==In the games==
===Types of Bicycles===
In most games there is only one type of Bicycle; however, in [[Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire Versions|Ruby, Sapphire]], [[Pokémon Emerald Version|Emerald]], [[Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire|Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire]], there are two types of Bicycle: the Acro Bike and the Mach Bike. The player can only have one at a time and must trade in their current Bicycle at [[Rydel's Cycles]] to obtain the other, although in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire the player can eventually obtain the ability to carry both at once.
 
All Bicycles cannot be ridden inside of buildings or if the player is accompanied by a person. In {{game|Yellow}} and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, the [[walking Pokémon]] returns to its [[Poké Ball]] while the player is cycling. Prior to Generation V, bikes cannot be ridden in [[Snow tile|snow]]. In {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}, bikes cannot be ridden in [[gate]]s.
 
====Regular Bicycle====
[[File:Key Bicycle Sprite.png|thumb|Bicycle obtain sprite from the Generation V games]]
In all games but [[Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire Versions|Ruby, Sapphire]], [[Pokémon Emerald Version|Emerald]], [[Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire|Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire]] there is only one type of Bicycle.
 
In Generations I and III, [[Miracle Cycle]] is selling Bicycles for {{Pdollar}}1,000,000, which is {{PDollar}}1 more than it is possible for the player to obtain in these games. Instead, the player must use a [[Bike Voucher]] to buy one.
 
In {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, the player can press the B Button to switch between the third and fourth gears. Fourth gear is faster than third gear and allows the player to ride up {{DL|bike obstacles|muddy slopes}} and jump further from bike {{DL|bike obstacles|ramps}}. Third gear can jump bike ramps, but does not jump as far.
 
In [[Pokémon X and Y]], the player can choose between a green or a yellow bicycle, the choice having no impact on the bike itself.

An '''Acro Bike''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|ダートじてんしゃ|Dāto Jitensha}}''' ''Dirt Bike'') travels at the same speed as regular Bicycles, but it also allows {{player}}s 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 {{rt|119|Hoenn}} and in the [[Hoenn Safari Zone]].

=====ItemIn details====={{game2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}} and their [[remake|remade]] counterparts, {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}, the player has a choice of two bike models, the [[Mach Bike]] and the [[Acro Bike]]. Both bicycles have different properties that allow the player to reach places they otherwise could not, but they typically cannot have both at the same time. They can switch models at [[Rydel's Cycles]].

====MachIn Bike====[[Generation VII]], several [[Poké Ride|Ride Pokémon]] take over the role of transporting the player across the land at higher speeds, such as {{p|Tauros}} Charge.
[[File:Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire Mach Bike.png|thumb|200px|Artwork of the Mach Bike from {{pkmn|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}]]
{{main|Mach Bike}}
The '''Mach Bike''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|マッハじてんしゃ|Mahha Jitensha}}''' ''Mach Bike'') allows {{player}}s to move a lot faster than regular Bicycles and the Acro Bike. It can move fast enough to ride straight up {{DL|bike obstacles|muddy slopes}}, or over [[Hole#Generation III|cracked tiles]] without falling through (which appear in [[Granite Cave]], the [[Sky Pillar]], and [[Mirage Tower]]{{sup/3|E}}) if the player has enough momentum. If the {{player}} collides with something, all momentum gained is lost and the speed resets.
 
On the [[Seaside Cycling Road]], a player's time and number of collisions while riding this Bicycle from the northern entrance to the southern exit are timed and recorded. This is part of the data sent over to other====In {{playergame2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}s via [[record mixing]].only====
The player can switch between third and fourth gears by pressing the B button, which function similarly to the [[Acro Bike]] and [[Mach Bike]], respectively. Fourth gear is faster than third gear and allows the player to ride up {{DL|bike obstacles|muddy slopes}} and jump further from bike {{DL|bike obstacles|ramps}}. Third gear can jump bike ramps, but does not jump as far. In Diamond and Pearl only, bikes cannot be ridden in [[gate]]s.

==In the anime==
 
{{adv|Gold}} competed with [[Whitney]] in a bike race from [[Goldenrod City]] to the [[National Park]] in ''[[PS105|Smeargle Smudge]]'' and ''[[PS106|How Do You Do, Sudowoodo?]]''. Gold, however, altered his Bicycle into a push scooter.
 
In ''[[PS241|Dreadful Dealing with Dusclops]]'', {{adv|Wally}} used a [[Mach Bike]] left for him by [[Norman]] at the base of the [[Sky Pillar]] to quickly ride over the cracked floors in order to scale up the tower. When Wally reached the 49th floor, he encountered a wild {{p|Dusclops}}, which created a {{wp|black hole}}, sucking in the Mach Bike before being defeated by [[Emerald's Sceptile|Wally's Grovyle]].
 
{{adv|Diamond}}, {{adv|Pearl}}, and {{adv|Platinum}} received Bicycles from [[Rad Rickshaw]] as a sign of gratitude after his rescue from [[Team Galactic]] in ''[[PS347|Ring Around the Roserade II]]''. The trio would later use their new Bicycles to travel through the [[Sinnoh Route 206|Cycling Road]].
* In the Safari Zone located in Hoenn, certain areas require either the Mach Bike or Acro Bike.
* In [[Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]], the bells on the different bikes have notably different sounds.
* Despite the typical Bicycle not making an appearance in the [[core series]] since {{g|X and Y}}, in {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}} the Bicycle's English name was reformatted to '''Bike''' in its [[List of items by index number (Generation VI)|internal data]], and has remained that way ever since.
