There are a number of unlockable moves that players are able to use in the overworld of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. One of these abilities is a Bike, which will make traversing the Sinnoh region much quicker. While not taking you directly to previously visited areas like Fly, the Bike has added benefits that will help do certain tasks while taking you to locations new and old. This guide will show you how to get a Bike in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
How to Get a Bike in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
The first thing you are going to need to do to get the bike is to get to Eterna City. Here you will find two buildings, a Bike Shop and Team Galactic’s Building. If you head to the latter, you will find the store empty since the owner, Rad Rickshaw, has been taken by Team Galactic. To get into their building, you will need to get the Cut Hidden Move to get rid of the trees in front of the door. To get Cut, you will need to defeat Eterna City’s Gym Leader, Gardenia. Once she is defeated, you will get the Gym Badge as well as the Cut Hidden Move. Head back to the Team Galactic Building. Use Cut to enter the building and battle your way to the top floor. Once there, you will need to fight the Team Galactic Commander to free the Bike Shop Owner.
Once you defeat the Team Galactic Commander, head back to the Bike Store in Eterna City. This is where you will once again find Rad Rickshaw. As thanks for saving him from Team Galactic, he will provide you with a Bike. Unlocking the bike will make processes such as hatching eggs much quicker as they require certain amount of steps to hatch, steps that are still counted when on a Bike. This will greatly help with that process while also providing a much faster mode of transportation.
Both Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl are available now on the Nintendo Switch.
