Poké Ride

In the Alola Region, you have the ability to call various Pokémon in order to have them use their abilities to help you achieve things that you may not be able to do. This includes riding on Pokémon over water, smashing rocks and more. This removes the need for using HMs, which no longer exist in the game

After you have defeated the first Kahuna in Iki Town, you will be given the Ride Pager item. This item can be activated with the Y Button and allows for you to call on Pokémon to assist you. Each Pokémon has got a special feature unique to it requiring you to use multiple Pokémon to explore the region. You'll get new Pokémon added as you progress through the game.

A feature of PokéRide is the ability to register four of the Pokémon to different buttons on the D-Pad. With this, you can activate the Pokémon with a simple touch of the button, so you can access your more often used Pokémon even easier.
