Two bikes, and remove the crappy roller skates.
Two bikes are back (Mach and Acro)
One bike with two gears
One bike and roller skates replace Acro Bike
Something else entirely...
Two bikes, and remove the crappy roller skates.
They probably won't remove two bikes.
Wow... this is unexpected. I thought most people would pick the third option, and the LEAST people would pick the first option, but it turns out I was COMPLETELY wrong.
So, I guess I'm gonna have to write a longer post on why I think, imo, not only is the third option (roller skates replace acro bikes), the most likely, but it's also the best idea. Hear me out.
Why the first option is unlikely: Firstly, having two bikes the way they were done in RSE was just very inconvenient, especially before you get fly. I mean, I have to walk all the way back to that specific town just to change my bike?! It's so inconvenient, in fact, that I think Gen IV's idea of two gears was made just to remove said inconvenience. If that is true, then it would make more sense for them to bring back the two geared bike instead of two bikes, but...
Why the second option is unlikely: We already have skates. OR/AS will be made from XY's engine, so it would be easier for GF to just use the skates that are already there instead of removing them. Or, they could change the current bike to a two-geared one and keep the skates, but then what would be the point of the skates then if they function almost the same way as the low-geared bike? The easiest option for GameFreak is to just replace all parts of the game involving the Acro bike with the skates. It saves them work and time.
Why the third option is the best idea for consumers: First, as I said before, it's more convenient than having two bikes, that can only be switched at a certain place. You can have both a bike and roller skates in your bag. Second, it's better for newer fans that haven't played the original RS. They'll be familiar with the concept of skates and a bike, but they won't be familiar with the concept of two bikes. Neither will they be familiar with gears if they haven't played DPPt. They'll already know how to use the skates and what they can be used for. And third, finally, the most useless reason, having skates and a bike provides more transportation variety. Two bikes are just TWO kinds of bikes. At least skates and bikes look a lot more different. They provide different mediums of transport, whereas having two bikes just provides... the same medium of transport but two kinds? I mean, having two different mediums seems more creative, imo.
Well, this is just what I think, anyway. I might be wrong. But I hope with what you've read here, you may reconsider your vote on the poll.....
Where's the skateboard option?I'm assuming they'll have the two bikes again, these are remakes after all. It would stupid not to include them. I don't know why they didn't keep them in the other games in the first place.
Touch not thy cat without a glove.
Seriously, it's not a good idea.
One bike with two gears please, one of the things that aggravated me in R/S/E was everytime i needed the bike i wasn't currently using i had to go back to the Bike Shop and switch for the other, this doesn't add challenge or fun, it just adds annoyance and tedium.

I personally hope roller skates will make a return to ORAS. I was quite happy with having a good alternative to riding a bike. I prefer using the roller skates than the bike, and considering in X and Y they had the feature of doing tricks with the skates, I could imagine them replacing the acro bike and keeping the skates, for convenience and for variety.
Giving us more transportation varieties is another way to give our characters a slight more customisation and personality.
I actually like the idea of using skates instead of the Acro, as switching bikes is inconvenient. We could get a 2 gear bike, but as stated above, the skates are already in this generation's engine and I think it'd be easier for GF to include that instead of two bikes.
Two bikes for sure.
Am I the only one who hated the roller skates in X&Y? I just preferred running, even though you could still run with the d-pad. The thing I hated the most was how there wasn't a way to disable them, I really want to be able to run with the circle pad. If they do return in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire I hope there's a way to disable them.
I don’t get how Skates can be even considered as replacement for Acro. You can’t do wheelie or bunny hops on Skates. Also, because of new graphics I think Acro and Mach will have visible differences in design and riding animation, so they should be kept as separate bikes.
Ideally I would like the gears option from DPPt so that you don't need to switch between bikes all the time, but I wouldn't mind switching between bikes the ol' fashion way for nostalgic reasons. They can keep the skates for those who are a fan of them, I guess I didn't necessarily hate them.
