Effect

Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire

The Mach Bike allows players to move a lot faster than regular Bicycles and the Acro Bike (16 steps per second in Generation VI). If the player is already riding the Mach Bike, then using this item causes the player to resume walking.

It can move fast enough to ride over cracked tiles without falling through (which appear in Generation III in Granite Cave, the Sky Pillar, and Mirage TowerE), or ride straight up muddy slopes if the player has enough speed. If the player collides with something, then the speed resets.

Riding the Mach Bike or Acro Bike is required on the Seaside Cycling Road. 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 players via record mixing.

Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen

In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, the Mach Bike (as well as the Acro Bike) is found in the game data, but it is not legitimately obtainable.

When this item is used, the player simply starts riding the regular Bicycle (unless the player is any place where riding the Bicycle is not allowed). If the player is already riding the Bicycle, then using this item causes the player to resume walking (unless the player is in the Cycling Road, where riding the Bicycle is required).

When the player attempts to enter the Cycling Road, the game specifically checks for the event flag indicating that the player has received the Bicycle from the Miracle Cycle shop in Cerulean City. As a result, if the player has the Mach Bike but has never received the regular Bicycle from Miracle Cycle, the player will still be unable to enter the Cycling Road.

Pokémon Adventures

In Dreadful Dealing with Dusclops, 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 Dusclops, which created a black hole, sucking in the Mach Bike before being defeated by Wally's Grovyle.
