Quick Updates

Weather Conditions

Season: Autumn

With the cooling season of Autumn, Ice-types are starting to re-emerge from their hibernation as Ghost-, Normal-, and Flying-types swarm in the largest numbers they will all year. In comparison, wild Fire- and Bug-type populations are falling in number. The migration of Flying-types to the south in search of warmer weather has also started, as Istin City starts to re-freeze and Autumn marks the beginning of Cypwater Point's rainy season. Handlers and Rogues alike should be wary: Ghost-type powers are boosted during this season, at the cost of being more prone to their triggers.

Flying Pokemon:
    While the vast majority of flying-type pokémon are able to fly, and the majority are capable of learning the fly attack, there are a limited number of flying pokémon which may carry a person while flying. Some may only be able to carry younger people, and a select few are ridable only with a special permit that would be received at the culmination of a study course under careful supervision (to prevent injury to the person and the pokémon alike).

    It should be noted that flying pokémon who cannot physically fly- such as doduo and dodrio- may be listed exclusively as land steeds.

    In addition, all non-flying type pokémon who may learn the move fly will be listed based on their capabilities.

    All flying pokemon who have reached level 25 will be upgraded one level out of the below tiers of flight. At level 50, they are upgraded again, so a strong yanma would be able to carry a full grown human. The list below is based on sizes as though they had just evolved or hatched.
***There are one or two pokémon who can fly WITHOUT knowing the attack, and they are included below. These pokémon will be able to fly people and parcels upon their evolution or naturally by level twelve.***

Pokémon capable of carrying a full-grown human:

Pokémon capable of carrying a small human:

Pokémon capable of carrying a parcel ONLY:

Surfing pokémon:
    Again, more or less all water-type pokémon can swim, and most could help you get to shore if you were drowning and REALLY needed help, but not every pokémon who may learn the attack surf may be able to use the move to ferry people across waterways. Most pokémon can help a person swim across water if they hang onto said pokémon, provided they weight at least 1/4 of the person's weight and are at least two feet tall or in length.

    Please note that all pokémon who can learn the move are taken into consideration; not just water types. In addition, non-water types are unable to surf for extended periods of time, particularly rock and ground types.
Pokémon capable of being ridden in the water:

Riding pokémon:
    Harper is a big place, and sometimes a person has to or may want to move more quickly/safely along the routes. Some people, if they have the luxury, prefer to ride a pokémon. Sometimes, it's all but necessary unless you're flat broke- such as crossing the desert. Recognized steed pokémon are the only ones that are officially allowed to be ridden, and are judged based on size and strength and relative safety.

    Please note that there is no predominant type, and the blanket rule is that if the pokémon is reasonably large/larger than you or if it would be capable of carrying you without too much trouble, then it may be ridden. Some pokémon types are excluded- such as electric types- for inherent risks, such as shock.

    In the case of ponyta and rapidash, they must be taught how to shrink or put out their fiery mane and/or tail before they may be safely ridden.

    No move, TM, or HM is required to ride a normal steed that travels across the ground.
Recognized as safe-to-ride:
