PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So, I'm trying to get the three TM's I know are in there, which 2 are grass type moves (I believe they are Energy Ball, solarbeam, and something else, but I may not be right, no clue about the last one) But I've come across a slight problem- The places in which two of those Tm's are seem to need access using both a Mach Bike AND a Acro bike? Obviously I don't think you can carry both... Can anyone let me know what to do? I'm looking to get these three.

Found Solar Beam. But the other two which need Acro and Mach access I do not understand how to get
The third TM is Wild Charge.

You do need both bikes! At the same time.

I'm sure you're wondering; "W-w-what... both bikes? How could one do that? Having two bikes in one Pokémon game, that is completely outrageous." Yes - you can get both bikes - Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are changing it up, completely destroying all preconceived notions of what a Pokémon game should be. Here's how to obtain both the Acro Bike and Mach Bike:

To get both bikes, you need to advertise Rydel's Bikes to various people throughout the region

•Mach Bike - Show the Mach Bike to a Hex Maniac in the Route 111 Desert
•Acro Bike - Show the Acro Bike to a Bird Keeper in the Acro Bike area of Route 119 - Requires Surf & Waterfall
•Any Bike - Speak to a Triathlete in Battle Resort

Once you have spoken to all three of these characters, return to Rydel's Cycles in Mauville City and he will give you the other bike, so you now have both bikes at the same time.

Good luck getting those TMs!
