TMs

Technical Machines (TMs for short) are items you can use to permanently teach a Pokémon a new random Fast Attack or Charged Attack.

They can be obtained as a reward from winning a Raid Battle or completing research tasks.

There are two types of Technical Machines corresponding two types of attacks in the game:

  • Fast TMs for Fast Attacks
  • and Charged TMs for Charged Attacks.

TypesEdit

Fast TMEdit

Fast TM
Details
TM that can be used to teach a Pokémon a new, random Fast Attack.

In-game description
This Technical Machine item is used to teach your Pokémon a new Fast Attack. Your Pokémon will acquire a new Fast Attack and forget their old Fast Attack.

Charged TMEdit

Charged TM
Details
TM that can be used to teach a Pokémon a new, random Charged Attack.

In-game description
This item works like the Fast TM but it teaches the Charged Attack instead of a Fast Attack. Remember, too use a charged attack you need too select the element button underneath the bar.

TriviaEdit

  • Legacy moves are not able to be re-rolled.[1] (as in you can change a legacy move for another move but you cannot get that legacy move ever again).
  • TM cannot be used on Pokémon with a single move (e.g. Moltres, Zapdos, etc.).[1]
  • Using a TM will teach a Pokémon a new random attack which is available for the Pokémon to learn and is not same as the attack that is being forgotten.
  • Most Pokémon have two possible Fast Attacks, therefore it is guaranteed that those Pokémon will learn the desired Fast Attack.
  • Most Pokémon have three possible Charged Attacks, therefore there is ~50% chance of learning the desired Charged Attack.
