Rydel (Japanese: カゼノ Kazeno) is a character in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire who owns the Mauville City Bicycle Shop.

In the games

Rydel in Pokémon Emerald

When the player visits his bike shop, he will see how dirty the player's Running Shoes are and will give a free Mach Bike or Acro Bike to them, and allow them to exchange one bike for the other freely. Much like the bicycle shop in Goldenrod City, Rydel uses the player to advertise his shop; as another biker points out, the bike has Rydel's name printed all over it.

Rydel's Cycles
  • First time
"Well, well, what have we here? A most energetic customer! Me? You may call me Rydel. I'm the owner of this cycle shop."
"Your Running Shoes… They're awfully filthy. Did you come from far away?"
Yes: "Hm, hm… … … … … You're saying that you came all this way from Littleroot? My goodness! That's ridiculously far! If you had one of my Bikes, you could go anywhere easily while feeling the gentle caress of the wind! I'll tell you what! I'll give you a Bike! Oh, wait a second! I forgot to tell you that there are two kinds of Bikes! They are the Mach Bike and the Acro Bike! Mach Bike is for cyclists who want to feel the wind with their bodies! And an Acro Bike is for those who prefer technical rides! I'm a real sweetheart, so you can have whichever one you like! Which one will you choose?"
No: "Is that right? Then, I guess you have no need for any of my Bikes."
"If you get the urge to switch Bikes, just come see me!"
  • If talked to again
"Oh? Were you thinking about switching Bikes?"
Yes: "Okay, no problem! I'll switch Bikes for you!"
No: "Good, good! I'm happy that you like it!"
"If you get the urge to switch Bikes, just come see me!"

Yes: "If you get the urge to switch Bikes, just come see me!"
No: "Good, good! I'm happy you like it!"
"Oh, it's you! I've been waiting for you! Many people have come to my shop, saying they saw you riding a Rydel's Bike here and there and they want to buy a Bike, too. Thanks to you, my buisness is thriving! As a token of my appreciation, I'll give you another Bike!"
"May the wind of always be at you back on your adventure!"
