Not to confused with Flying Pod.

The Flying Pot[1] is a gimmick that appears in Sonic and the Secret Rings. It is a pot with wings that can be used to reach higher areas.

Flying Pots are found floating in midair. In order to use them, the player must use the Homing Attack against the pot, upon which Sonic curls into a ball and hops in. Once Sonic is inside the pot, the player must shake the Wii remote to gain height. When the pot has reached its maximum altitude, the player must jump out of the pot, and gameplay resumes as usual.
