The Pokémon Company Made a Real-Life Version of the Gen 1 Bike

The Pokémon Company has made a real-life version of the bike in the Gen 1 Pokémon games and they’re giving it away to one lucky winner.

Before you get your hopes up, the company is not offering international shipping so the winner must be located in Japan, as reported by Kotaku. However, even if it’s not possible to win the bike where you’re at, it’s still worth a gander.

As you can see in the images above, it’s quite a stylish bike. The tire tread features the designs of different Pokéballs such as the Masterball and the standard Pokéball, of course, and the rim part of the wheel features minimalist etchings of Pikachu’s head as well as the heads of the game’s three starter Pokémon.

As if that’s not cool enough, the bike also plays the Bicycle Theme from the Gen 1 Pokémon games.

As for why this bike was made by The Pokémon Company, the reason is actually quite fitting: The Pokémon Company’s Twitter account finally reached one million followers. Anyone familiar with the Gen 1 Pokémon games knows the significance of one million.

As noted by Kotaku, the bike in those games is available for sale for one million Pokémon Dollars. However, you can’t obtain more than 999,999 Pokémon Dollars in the games so you can’t actually buy the bike — you have to obtain and use the Bike Voucher.

Anyone wishing to enter the giveaway can do so by following the Poké Times Twitter account and using the hashtag #ポケモンの100万円じてんしゃ in a tweet. Kotaku writes that the translation of that hashtag is “Pokémon’s million yen [sic] bicycle.” Remember, if you do enter into the giveaway, the bike will only be shipped domestically so you have to be in Japan to actually win.
