One Million Dollar Pokemon Red’s Bicycle Made Real
To celebrate the million Twitter followers, The Pokémon Company has now made real the sweet bicycle from the first generation games, Red and Blue, and their remakes. And one lucky person will get this.
In-game, the bicycle is valued at one million Pokémon dollars. It wasn’t likely for players to earn enough cashola to buy one, because it costs a dollar more than could be obtained in-game. The two-wheeler could, however, be taken with a Bike Voucher.
This life-sized reproduction won’t be for sale but rather given away. To win, you need to follow @poke_times and use the hashtag ポケモンの100万円じてんしゃ (“Pokémon’s million yen [sic] bicycle”). While anyone can do that, the rules state that the reward will only be shipped domestically in Japan. Sorry, international fans will not get the chance to win this: unless you have a place in Japan.
The bicycle is made with an array of cool touches and accents, such as Poké Ball wheel tread, etchings of Pokémon like Pikachu and Snorlax within the spokes, and Poké Balls marked on the handles.
The bicycle even plays the Bicycle Theme. If you don’t remember, have a listen!
