Poké Ride (Japanese: ポケモンライド Pokémon Ride) is a custom practiced in the Alola region where certain Pokémon are trained as Ride Pokémon to help people travel or perform other tasks. Different Ride Pokémon have strengths suiting them to different tasks. An institution called Alola Transit appears to be involved in the administration of Ride Pokémon. They are a common means of travel in Alola.

Anyone can summon a Ride Pokémon if they have a Ride Pager (Japanese: ライドギア Ride Gear) with the desired Pokémon registered to it. The Ride Pager was developed by Ilima with the help of a friend.

Some Ride Pokémon are trained at Paniola Ranch.

In Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon, Ride Pokémon functionally take the place of HM-taught field moves and certain Key Items—like the Dowsing Machine and the Bicycle—from past games. The Ride Pager can be opened by pressing the Y Button once it is obtained. The player can also tap the icons by the Ride Pokémon to register them to different directions on the Control Pad as a shortcut. In Pokémon Sun and Moon, it is obtained from Hala after the player passes his grand trial.

While riding a Ride Pokémon, the player will wear a special suit known as the Riding Wear (Japanese: ライドウェア Ride Wear). The Riding Wear's appearance differs when riding on a Pokémon that travels on water.

Ride Pokémon first appeared in Alola to New Adventure!, in which a Sharpedo was used by Ash to move around the water in Hau'oli City. In the same episode, several Tauros appeared under the ownership of the Pokémon School, where they were used by Lana, Mallow, and Sophocles.

Ash and Kiawe each used a Ride Tauros in a race in the following episode.

Lana owns a Lapras, which she uses to traverse over the water. When not in use, it is kept in the sea next to her house. It was first seen in Alola to New Adventure!. Kiawe owns a Charizard, which he uses to move around from island to island in order to make deliveries. It used to belong to his grandfather.

In Yo, Ho, Ho! Go, Popplio!, several Wailmer and Lapras were used to help in a fishing exercise for Ash and his classmates.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Ride Pokémon first appeared in the Sun & Moon chapter, where Sun uses his Tauros to help with deliveries. It can be summoned at any time via the Ride Pager. As in the games, while riding a Ride Pokémon, Sun wears the Riding Wear. Once he is done riding the Ride Pokémon, the summoned Pokémon disappears and his outfit changes back.

Trivia

  • Charizard is the only Ride Pokémon that does not appear in the Alola Pokédex.
  • While the Ride Pager cannot be obtained as an item through normal gameplay, data for it as an unobtainable Key Item exists which can be accessed through cheating.
