Poké Ride (ポケモンライド Pokemon Raido) is a game mechanic introduced in the Pokémon Sun and Moon games. To use it, the player needs a Ride Pager.

This feature replaces HMs, as well as some key items from previous generations, like the Bicycle and Dowsing Machine.


Poké Ride is a feature that lets players ride Pokémon in certain places normal travel can't do. They can soar on Charizard, find hidden treasures with Stoutland, fish with a gentle Lapras and much more! Most of these ride Pokémon are rideable by pressing Y then B.
