Tips for Using TMs

  • Teach Pokémon moves of the same type: A Pokémon that uses a move that is the same type as their own will do 50% more damage (100% is they have the Adaptability ability). This is known as the same-type attack bonus. You should ideally be teaching electric-type moves like Thunderbolt to electric-type Pokémon.
  • Teach moves to cover weaknesses: A Pokémon should not have a moveset with attacks of only one type. This will leave them at a huge disadvantage in battling. A Pokémon should have one move that can help them against an opponent that has a type advantage over them. For example, a water-type Pokémon would be at a disadvantage against a grass-type Pokémon. However, they could use an ice-type move like Ice Beam, which is super effective on grass-type Pokémon.
  • Keep stats in mind: Be familiar with the stats of your Pokémon, particularly their attack and special attack stats. These play a factor in determining the damage output of a move. Teaching a physical move to a Pokémon with a low attack stat would not be beneficial. However, your Pokémon should still have one move that may not be useful with their stats. This is a precaution in case some modifiers come into play, such as if your special attack stat gets lowered and you have to rely on physical moves.
  • Don't ignore status moves: If you are just going to play through the main single-player story, you probably won't need status moves. If you are interested competitive battling, these moves will be vital. Don't brush them off because they don't deal any direct damage. With a proper set up and strategy, you can control a battle with status moves. Attacks like Thunder Wave can paralyze an opponent while you raise your attack stat with Swords Dance.

Recommended Early Game TMs

Here are some useful TMs that are obtainable early in the main game (within the first two islands).

  • TM31: Brick Break is a decent physical fighting-type move that has the ability to destroy defenses set up by moves like Reflect or Light Screen.
  • TM43: Flame Charge is received relatively early on Route 8. It is a physical fire-type move that has the ability to raise the speed of the user.
  • TM44: Rest can be received at the Thrifty Megamart. It will put the user to sleep for two turns, but their Hit Points will be fully recovered.
  • TM47: Low Sweep can be purchased at Konikoni City. It is a physical fighting-type move that has a power of 70. Additionally, it can lower the speed of the opponent.
  • TM67: Smart Strike is a steel-type physical move that has a power of 70 and never misses. It is obtainable in Lush Jungle on Akala Island.

      You said "HeaHea City in Melemele" on the Safeguard Tm instructions. It confused me at first, so I just wanted to point that out.

      Can't really put it to words properly but it's at the Vast Poni Canyon and I already got it. Try searching all caves and bodies of water and you'll eventually get to it.
