Has the Bike become a totally pointless item?

The Bike...your trusty get every fast item of Gen I and II. Has it become a pointless item thanks to the running shoes?
I know there have a been a few things it's been used for in the recent gens such as getting up slippy hills and the such, but why do we still have it?

i use it all the time, mainly cos i'm impatient and i'd rather zip around than hold down the b button. even in soulsilver i still held down b out of habit while running.

hmmm good point actually lol. although in HGSS you didn't need to hold B for the running shoes.

I just find I don't use the bike like I did in Gen I and II

This is probably cause the only other option was walking slower than, as my grandfather would say, mollases in the middle of July.

But yes, I think it's a pretty pointless item now. I have prefered the Running Shoes since HeartGold when you couldn't see you Pokemon unless you were running or walking. Hardly ever used it except for Egg hatching. That's the only thing it's really good for anymore.

I tend to use my bike only when i really want to rush to the Pokémon Center. Other than that, I walk.

Would you rather hold B while going back and forth hatching your eggs? Suit yourself.

Again, a good point. Guess it has more uses than I thought. sigh now I feel like a right tit

So has the bike become useless?
Simple answer: no
I use it to race trucks while hatching my eggs.

You had better!

The bike... I still don't see how it fits in tiny little bag. Even if it's like, foldable.

You Don't question Logic like that in a Pokémon game.

bahaha i've never thought about it.

it's odd thinking about how ghetto packed those bags must be.
especially when i have 60 some odd ultra balls in preparation for an incoming legendary battle.
