Criteria: -Pokemon must be a quadruped. Bipedal Pokemon are accepted only if they appear as if they could feasibly walk on all fours naturally, such as Swampert, or if their body frames are suited for the job. Examples of good bipedal candidates are Dodrio and Rampardos. -Snake-like Pokemon such as Onix are accepted, but only if their bodies are large enough for the trainer to feasibly sit on -Pokemon must be a minimum of 4ft tall. If the Pokemon has a sturdy frame that looks like it can support at least twice it's weight, a minimum of 3ft is accepted. Examples of this are Rhyhorn and Donphan. -The Pokemon must appear able to support weight equal to at least it's own body weight comfortably. -The Pokemon must look comfortable for the rider to sit on. A Pokemon like Gigalith fits all of the above criteria, but still isn't accepted simply because it doesnt look like there's anywhere on its body to sit comfortably.
Here are the Pokemon that best fit these criteria:
Arcanine Rapidash Doduo Dodrio Rhyhorn Onix Tauros Gyarados Meganium Typhlosion Steelix Piloswine Donphan Stantler Raikou Entei Suicune Swampert Lairon Tropius: Available as a Sky Mount as well. Camerupt Metagross Salamence: Available as a Sky Mount as well. Groudon Grotle Torterra Luxray Rampardos Bastiodon Hippowdon Drapion Mamoswine Dialga Palkia Giratina - Altered Heatran Arceus: Available as a Sky Mount as well. Zebstrika Sawsbuck Bouffalant Zweilous Landorus - Therian: Available as a Sky Mount as well. Cobalion Terrakion Virizion Keldeo Kyurem
Sky Mounts -The Pokemon must be a minimum of 4ft tall, with a wingspan that seems to be at least the length of its own body. Exceptions are made for Pokemon that fly through a method other than wings, or have other factors that make them feasible candidates. -The Pokemon must have a body that seems sturdy enough to support the weight -There must be ample room to sit on the Pokemon comfortably. -The ability to learn Fly isn't mandatory, but is a key factor in most cases.
"The other Pokemon you saw was actually Rhyhorn, not Rhydon (burn). Maybe a big rocky Pokemon will help you cross broken paths that you might not be able to cross with a bike alone. He'll allow you to bust up rocks along your way across your path. Rhyhorn was the Pokemon I personally always wanted to ride. If there was a Rhyhorn here in real life I'm sure you'd like to ride him as well."
