Generation I and II
In the Generation I and Generation II games, as well as Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, there is only a basic bicycle which is sold by Miracle Cycle. Only one obstacle is passable only by bicycle, and that is Cycling Road. Bicycling is disallowed in most buildings.
The Mach Bike can move so fast that it can move over muddy slopes or over weak ground. If the player collides with something, the speed will reset. On the Seaside Cycling Road, the player's time and amount of collisions are recorded, and will be sent over to another player if the records are swapped.
In the Generation IV games released so far, only one bicycle is available. This, however, has two gears which can be changed by pressing the B button. Obstacles can be jumped over with sufficient speed. Unlike the previous generations, bikes cannot be ridden in any buildings.
- Ash, Misty, Brock, and Team Rocket used a blimp in A Scare in the Air! and one is seen in The Kecleon Caper!. Ash, Dawn, Brock and Jun, along with Team Rocket, used an airship to go the Canalave City in DP103.
- Misty uses one to go back to Cerulean City from the Mirage Kingdom in the episode A Togepi Mirage.
Used by Team Rocket in most episodes. Some balloons were shaped as a Wobbuffet, a Sneasel, a Gliscor, a Carnivine, and a Meowth. A hot air-balloon was also used by Ash and co. in the episode The Kecleon Caper and by various contestants, including Ash, in The Big Balloon Blow-Up. There were also others in various other episodes like That's Just Swellow and in the movie The Rise of Darkrai.
The S.S. Anne stops four years, a year or monthly (depending on canon) in Vermilion City. The S.S. Ticket that is needed to board the ship is only given away to exclusive people, such as Bill and Professor Oak. However, they can give the ticket away to others.
After the player has become the champion, it will always run between Lilycove City and Slateport City. However, it will occasionally run to other places if the player has a ticket. With the Battle Pass, it will run to Battle Tower (in Ruby and Sapphire) or the Battle Frontier (in Emerald); with the Eon Ticket, it will run to Southern Island; with the Mysticticket, it will run to Navel Rock; with the Auroraticket, it will run to Birth Island; and with the Old Sea Map, it will run to Faraway Island.
There are currently four known tickets that can be used to board a Seagallop Ferry: The Tri-Pass allows them to travel to Knot, Boon and Kin Islands, the Rainbow Pass to the same three islands, as well as Floe, Chrono, Fortune, and Quest Islands, the Mysticticket allows travel to Navel Rock, and the Auroraticket allows travel to Birth Island.
Used by Team Rocket many times and by Ash and his friends in Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea and in Relicanth Really Can!. In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald a submarine made by Captain Stern is stolen by Team Magma to reach Seafloor Cavern where Groudon or Kyogre is.
Team Rocket's boats
Team Rocket has used many different boats in the anime.
Objects with Wheels
The Magnet Train runs between Saffron City and Goldenrod City, and was constructed some time after Generation I. To ride it, a person needs a pass, which was given to those displaced by the train stations' construction.
A truck is located in a normally inaccessible part of the S.S. Anne. Its purpose is currently unknown.
Used by Officer Jenny multiple times.
Used multiple times in the anime.
