Emile mentioned that he would like to capture a Tropius, and even went so far as to check the Safari Zone binoculars for one.
Interim between Episode 36: Hasta Fuego! and Episode 37: Route Canalave
Emile captured a Tropius and named her "Sweet Ride."
Sweet Ride assisted Emile by smashing rocks along Route 230.
Sweet Ride flew Emile all across the Sinnoh region. Her Cut was also used to enter the Old Chateau. She also appears in the video's thumbnail.
Sweet Ride is used for Fly.
- Sweet Scent
Sweet Ride's is named as a homage to a Starly used by Marriland in his Diamond Adventure Let's Play. Starly was Marriland's HM02 Slave due to him having Vespiquen, which is incapable of learning Fly.
- Sweet Ride served as the replacement for Staravia.
- She and Derpidius the Bibarel combined can learn every HM Move, thus no more HM Slaves will be required in Platinum.
- Sweet Ride appears in the thumbnail of Pokémon Platinum - Episode 82: I'll Fly.
