TMs (short for Technical Machines) are machines that can teach Pokemon new moves which they can use in battles. Pokemon do learn moves as they grow and level-up naturally, but they can also learn moves through the TMs. As such, TMs have become objects to collect and use on your critters in order for you to fully witness in battle and harness everything that moves has to offer.

In Pokémon Sun and Moon, there are 100 TMs to collect and utilize, and gathering them all is definitely a part of the adventure. So, now that everything has been said, go venture through Alola and gather all those TMs! Not only would you get bragging rights for collecting them all but, you’ll also gain access to many moves to teach your Pokémon and battle strategizing opportunities.
