Pokemon

Sometimes, you can’t just rely on a Pokémon’s natural development tree in order to train up a massive badass. Sometimes, your Zigzagoon which you’ve cunningly named Ziggy Stardust, needs a little performance enhancer. Like most athletes who avoid urine tests, the latest Pokémon games are full Teaching Machines. And here’s where you can find them.

Remember, use CTRL+F if you’re looking for a specific TM/HM:

Hidden Machines

Much like that terrible tattoo that I got one night when I catastrophically drunk, Hidden Machines are for life. It’s never a good idea to teach one of your primary Pokemon a few HMs, and always better to have an HM slave that exists to surf,dive or fly your ass to where you need to be. Locations for HMs are:

  • HM01 Cut Inside the Cutter’s House in Rustboro City
  • HM02 Fly Received as a gift from your rival on Route #119
  • HM03 Surf Received as a gift from Wally’s Father (Balance Badge required)
  • HM04 Strength Received as a gift from your rival on Route #112

  • HM06 Rock Smash Received as a gift from Wally’s Uncle in Mauville City
  • HM07 Dive Received as a gift from Steven in Mossdeep City (Mind Badge required)
