Pokemon Let’s Go Ride Pokemon – What Are the Rideable Pokemon in Let’s Go?

Rideable Pokemon first appeared in Pokemon Sun and Moon. Taking the place of several HMs, these rideable Pokemon could cut down trees, push boulders, fly across the map, and surf across the water. Now, they’re coming back to Pokemon Let’s Go, but in a different manner. Ride Pokemon in Let’s Go won’t be taking the place of HMs (other than perhaps Surf), but instead will simply be available to ride.

Riding any Pokemon will at least give you something of a speed boost across the land, and any that fly can be used to travel over water. Both you and your Partner Pokemon will ride atop the rideable Pokemon, and some of them do so in a humorous way. Just take a look at the Totoro-inspired Snorlax above if you don’t believe us. Riding some of the Pokemon, such as Arcanine and Rapidash will give you a huge speed boost, making travel that much quicker.
